Skip Ellsworth, was the founder of the Log Home Builders Association, he was a fifth generation log home builder. When he was younger, he had a job as a construction worker on the Alaska Railroad. The workers stayed in a railroad camp with leaky tents full of holes and wind blowing through. When people were complaining, Skip took an axe, and with log home experience passed down to him from his father and grandfather and built his log home next to the leaking camp. It wasn't long before he was hired to build tiny log cabins to stay in while the men worked in Alaska.
Skip later went on to build hundreds of log cabins and log homes in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, where he became the world’s foremost authority on log home building using modern techniques. He also later founded the Log Home Builders Association of North America, and this is where he began to teach others how to build log homes.
