What do people in Kentucky think about log cabin homes? I'm thinking of the ones built in the 1990's where the inside walls are logs. I know someone who is selling one in Kentucky and I am just wondering if they hold their value and if they are popular in Kentucky. As you can probably tell, I am not from Kentucky.

I love them and see them scattered all around. Mostly in the outlying part of the county and the more rural counties next door.

One caveat: My memory is that it is more difficult to get bank loans on them for the mortgage. I think they usually require you to put more down on a log cabin than on a standard home, but maybe someone more familiar with that than me can chime in.

From what I understand, banks do not require more down. The problem comes when doing the appraisal. They have a hard time finding comparable homes and they have to compare log homes to log homes. When she bought the house, the appraisal came in much higher than expected, it just took longer to do.

They keep their value very well. Check out Hearthstone Homes for some useful information on designs and tips you should look for when buying a log home.
