About Bar IV


Founded in 2018 by industry veteran Barry Ivey, BAR IV Log Homes Consulting is the buyer’s friend in the log home business. BAR IV acts solely on the homeowner’s behalf to help them navigate the log home process, no matter what stage they are in—dreaming, planning, or buying. We work with clients all over the U.S. to help them design their dream home, set and stick to their budget, source bids and navigate package options, and ultimately, achieve their log home dream. Our goal is to provide the customer with the most powerful tool in the home building process: insider knowledge.  


President and Founder of BAR IV Log Homes Consulting, Barry Ivey has been in the log home industry for more than 25 years and has worked with, for, and against a variety of log home companies. His experience spans all sides of the business—from dealers to manufacturing to sales. Not only that, Barry has designed, purchased, and participated in the building of three log homes for his own family, so he knows what it’s like to sit on both sides of the table. After two decades in the industry, Barry decided to focus his energy on the consumer side, using his vast knowledge to help log home buyers see behind the curtain and achieve their dream home through a fair, informed, and budget-minded process.
