October 17, 2021

As you dive into the information pool of handcrafted log homes, I bet you will be blown away at the incredible amount of details, nuances, and subtleties that make up these beautiful live-able art forms. One such intricacy is fiber choice.

I mentioned in the previous episode that many log home companies use the fiber choice that is most easy for them to access near their base operation. And for obvious reasons it makes sense.
