Where the log home is located can influence the level of diffculty encountered when selling. A log home being marketed last year in this area went through 3 listing agents and 20% drop in price before it sold. Buyers found it novel and quaint, but because it was not in an area that other log homes were located, it didn't conform. Buyers comented that, "This would be wonderful 'If" it were located _______." At a lower price, it did become attractive enough for the right buyer and it did sell.
Whenever you market to a smaller pool of potential buyers, your showings will be fewer and your marketing time can take longer.
Contemporary homes do not sell quickly or easily in certain areas, yet in other areas they do. That results from the customary trend and preferences of the region (as opposed to the exact specific location.)
As it pertains to your property, 1) Is the buyer pool for log homes smaller or larger than it would be for other types of homes in your area; 2) Is the property located near ranches, splits, and colonials or in an area where other log homes might be found?; 3) Have you evaluated your pricing strategy for possible adjustment?

The FHA 203k Rehab loan is a great product for buyers that are purchasing a property that will require work. There is one mortgage and one closing with the property appraised on the renovated value allowing the buyer to have the money available to complete the needed renovations.
The best thing to do would be to talk to your lender to see if your situation and the property qualify for the 203K program. Further information can be found on the HUD website below. As for borrowing from Family and friends before you do anything talk to your lender. There are restrictions on some loan products as to how much you can use as gifts, down payments,etc.
Another thing to ask your lender about is the USDA loan, where you can finance closing costs. Each individual has to be evaluated for the loan products the qualify for and each loan has it's own restrictions.
