We are considering purchasing a log home in Maine built in 1988. It looks to be kit built but the seller (not original owner) says not so. It is an important question for insurance purposes. Is there a definitive way to tell (and ideally identify the manufacturer if it was kit built)? Great site!

The typical kit style log home is milled with a flat top and bottom on the logs with a tongue & grove. Some are coped (half partial circle to fit over lower log). Then there are square log homes that most are kits. Send a picture to mike@logrepair.com for more information.
