Honest Abe Living

Honest Abe Living, December 2022

The Strunks cannot wait for the Christmas season. Liz starts decorating in December, and the set aside special times for their blended family to make memories in their log home.

Christmas at the Strunks

Derek and Liz Strunk designed their custom log home for a new life they started together in 2020. Manufactured by Honest Abe Log Homes and constructed by Honest Abe Independent Dealers Glen and Kenny Perrin, the house was completely finished by the Strunks. They installed their own hardwood floors, applied all the stain inside and out, made their stair rails and even out laid the stone for their fireplace. Famly heirloom barn wood was used for Derek to create interior architectural details.


Festive celebrations, flickering lights and winter greens are hallmarks of the holiday season, but they also present fire risks that can quickly turn this festive time of year into a devastating one.
