we are in the process of buying a log home in ME all the insurance companys ask if it is kit built and we are not sure wether it is or not is there anyway to tell by looking at the inside,outside etc


Kit built normally is a milled log home with the logs flat on the top and bottom and a tongue and grove system. There are many different brands, but probably 75% of log home now days are kit style. Handcrafted log homes are bigger logs not fit over the lower one (unless it is a Swedish cope) and have the wider chink lines. Kit homes are normally not caulked or chinked although they should be. Just a cheaper selling tool.
