I am getting ready to build a new log home. Why do 99.9% of all pictures of log homes I see, they have no gutters ? I definately like the look better, with no gutters. Can a log home be built in a certain way the you would not need gutters ? Thanks

Only if you can keep the logs high enough from the ground to avoid splashing. Decks are another area that need attention of gutters. Dormers that allow water to splash on a lower roof and splash up on the logs are a major area for problems. It is hard to channel water without having some gutters. At least in problem areas.
