Brand new this year on the Christmas Log Home Tour is the Godsey Cabin. The homeowners moved in recently to their three-bedroom, two-bath 6’x10′ chinked and dovetailed square log homes. Under a metal roof, there’s 1,665 square feet of heated space and a full basement. The 1,100-square-foot covered porch is supported by hand-peeled trees crafted into porch posts.
The Honest Abe Crossville’s Model Home is a 2,900-square-foot, two-story dovetailed D-log home surrounded by 1,700 feet of porches. Built from the Cambridge plan, Honest Abe Log Homes’ award-winning floor plan, the home incorporates both log and timber frame design. To learn more about the Cambridge, visit Christmas at the Cambridge. While there, step into Crossville’s original model home, The Frontier, a dovetailed chinked square log two-story cabin built in 1991. Now an office, the cozy structure demonstrates how log homes stand the test of time. The Crossville Model Home complex is located at 448 Crabtree Road Crossville, Tenn.
The Clayton Cabin
The 1,600-square-foot Clayton cabin was a creative collaboration between Honest Abe and homeowners who conceived of a cabin that captured the simplicity, beauty and spirit of early pioneer log homes. Honest Abe’s Genesis 6” x 12” square log style reproduces the historic exterior the homeowners imagined, while interior options like wide-plan flooring, candlelight-only overhead lighting and exposed beams maintain the ambience of an early Tennessee cabin. Read about the Clayton Cabin at “Gloryland Pioneers.”.
Those traveling from the west toward Crossville may stop at the Cookeville Honest Abe Log Homes model for the tour map and refreshments. Built in 2000 from the Bellewood plan, the 3,215-square-foot, two-story model home has three-bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths, a 52′ front porch with two side porches and full-length back deck.
Also on the site are three other log structures including a model built from the Algood plan as well as Honest Abe’s original dovetailed, chinked square log model and a small office log and timber structure, which now comprise The Mill Storehouse retail shopping complex.
