The Log and Timber Homes Council is a national organization with membership comprised of manufacturers of log homes. The LHC is part of the Building Systems Councils, a council of the National Association of Home Builders. Council members are log home manufacturers and producers who have united to develop and promote quality building systems and ethical business practices by participation in both mandatory and voluntary council programs designed to benefit log home customers, including an excellent buyer’s guide. For decades, Honest Abe has been a long-standing member and contributor of this council. Currently, Honest Abe’s president serves on the council’s steering committee.
