Visit Two Custom Log Homes at Rock Hill Road Farm

Two custom homes by Honest Abe Log Homes at Rock Hill Road Farm near Murfreesboro, Tennessee, will be open to visitors during a free reservations-only tour on June 16 beginning at 10 a.m.

One of the log structures is an 835-square-foot log cabin, while the other is a 3,255-square-foot home. Owners R.J. Hadle and husband Sam Grano collaborated with Honest Abe designer Melissa Copas to create the kind of living spaces they had imagined.

Both homes feature square logs with chinking, but R.J. and Sam chose to have the exterior walls of the larger home hand hewn by Honest Abe. Because an experienced craftsman at Honest Abe uses a vintage tool called an adze to manually hew the log, the result is much the same as pioneer homes would have appeared.

Visitors to Rock Hill Road Farm on June 16 will tour a small cabin and a spacious log house, both designed and manufactured exclusively for the homeowners by Honest Abe Log Homes.
