You want a real log well house or one that just looks like a log house? You could just built a stick frame structure then get some logs and have them split. Might be the easyest

Make sure it's not too heavy or bulky to remove in case you need access to deepen, clean the well, etc.

Ive posted like posts to this one, but here it goes again... If you want nearly FREE log cabin- and this would work well for a well (pun intended), try going to a log cabin pre fab place and getting log ends. They are perfect- pre notched, etc.. I built a 19 by 13 barn out of the stuff. Of course this does somewhat depend on where you live. If you want more info, drop me an e mail.

Or if you are near any kind of saw mill, you can get slab wood for free or next to nothing. Those pieces are smooth on one side and have bark on the other. Cut and fit what you need and nailed to a frame, will look a lot like a rustic log cabin.
