    Was wondering if any of you have or have had a home that was built by one of the major log home builders (Satterwhite, etc)? How long did it take from start to completion? Was it a difficult process?

    I helped a friend about 12 years ago put up a 2300 square foot Satterwhite. He contracted the slab and electrical and me and others helped him with everything else. All of us worked full time jobs so it was slow. We got it in the dry pretty quick and after that it slowed down. He was able to move in about 2 years after he started. His advantage was the fact he and his family were living in a mobile home in front of the building site.
