The husband-and-wife duo welcomes visitors, provides information to visitors and prospective homeowners about the design, manufacturing and construction of a custom log or timber frame home. Contact Greg or Melissa for an in-person consultation, to arrange a visit to the Cookeville Model Home, to schedule a tour of the log home manufacturing plant or to supply information. They’ll also register you for one of our log raisings or home tours held throughout the year. The Watsons would love to have you drop by at any time during business hours!

Cookeville – See a Variety of Log Home Styles

Welcome to Cookeville Honest Abe Log Homes.

The nine-room Model Home, completed in July 2000 using the Honest Abe Bellewood Floor Plan, has more than 3,215 square feet of living space. 

Feel the warmth of this spacious three-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath, 8×8 D-Log home with butt and pass corners and a heavy timber roof system.

It features a 52′ front porch with two side porches and an inviting back deck for summer barbecues. The first floor is designed to house the master bedroom and master bath, with a half bath to accommodate guests. The first floor covering is of random width southern yellow pine

Newly Redecorated

The Cookeville model was recently redecorated by Molly Cooper, interior design consultant with Honest Abe’s newest subsidiary, Cooper & Co.

Bellewood Model Kitchen

The kitchen features hickory cabinets and a Thermodore range with a convection oven and food warmers built into the hood.

Algood Model

Also on the Cookeville model home site is an additional and very different model built from the chalet-style Algood plan.

Shop in Our First Model

The Cookeville Honest Abe campus offers shopping in yet another pair of log homes. The Mill Storehouse is a retail store operated from yet another log home by Honest Abe – its first model home, a square log chinked building that has stood the test of time. Adjacent is a tiny house that’s been converted to a retail shop.
