National Log Cabin Month 2016

Special events celebrate log home industry's importance in past and present

Honest Abe Celebrates Log Home Industry During Log Cabin Month 2016

“National Log Cabin Month 2016 is a great opportunity for our guests to experience first-hand the quality and beauty of a log home,” said Josh Beasley, President of Honest Abe Log Homes, a 37-year-old, family-owned custom manufacturer of log and timber frame homes in Moss, Tenn. “We are proud to be part of an industry that is interwoven with the history of our country.”

That history was recognized in the Congressional Record of the United States when Rep. Reid J. Ribble of Wisconsin spoke before Congress in 2012 about the importance of the log home industry, calling it “a quintessential symbol of the American pioneering spirit, embodying America’s strength and ingenuity.” Congress acknowledged that the industry supports thousands of jobs from loggers to manufacturers to builders to sales professionals, as well as the housing market, lending institutions and many others.

“Log cabin production directly supports thousands of jobs from builders to sales professionals, as well as the housing market, lending institutions and many others,” Ribble noted. “The people of this industry are hard-working, charitable and deserving of recognition for their centuries of accomplishment.”

Ribble said that National Log Cabin Month also draws attention to the inherent “green” nature of log homes, noting that they are “economically sustainable, reducing waste and employing materials that put Mother Nature’s beauty at center stage.”

Beasley explained that the modern manufacturing process for log and timber homes utilizes every portion of the log, and pre-cut home packages go up quickly and leave less waste on the job site compared to conventional construction.

“Logs used for construction are solid and uninterrupted,” Beasley said. “Coupled with modern sealant materials and building techniques, this makes log homes highly energy efficient.”

Honest Abe’s four Tennessee Sales Models, Kentucky sales office and its network of independent dealers nationwide will provide free information about all aspects for log and timber home design and construction during July special events, which are free and open to the public. At the Open House events listed below, visitors will be treated to refreshments and a tour of a fully-furnished and decorated log home manufactured by Honest Abe Log Homes.

Log Homes are Good for the Environment
