My parents bought one of these. They didn't construct it, they were, I think, the third owners the house had.

Although they never lost their love for the Rustic Americana look, one thing Mom hadn't expected was that if you have rounded logs on the inside walls, you have to dust the logs regularly, all the way to the ceiling. Their model had a cathedral ceiling in the living room, so they ended up hiring a service.

Of course, it's possible to finish the inside walls, so they don't have to be dusted.
