Here’s solid advice about budgeting for a log or timber frame home from a seasoned professional.
The Nichol’s home in Virginia highlights the builder’s talent and showcases his life-long hobby.
Join us April 6 for the second of five 2019 Log Raisings at Honest Abe’s National Headquarters in Moss, Tennessee. Log Raisings are family-friendly events held in the company’s climate-controlled events building. Honest Abe staff members build a small cabin during the three-hour experience, which begins at 9 a.m. with coffee and snacks and ends at noon with lunch and a tour of the manufacturing facility. Log Raisings are free, but space is limited. Registration is required and may be made by arrangement with a company sales representative, an independent dealer or by calling 800-231-3695.
This is a clip from an Honest Abe Log Raising that shows how staff members explain how log homes are constructed.
The Coolsprings was designed to inspire family vacation gatherings while drawing guests to enjoy its natural surroundings. However, in recent years, we’ve had a number of customers who are interested in downsizing into a cozy log or timber frame home for their forever home.
At 1,457 square feet the Coolsprings is a perfect option. The floor plan features three bedrooms of similar size and two full bathrooms. There is an open loft to serve as an office space, reading spot or play area for children.
Access to the screened porch is easy through an exterior door located in the kitchen and living room area, making it easy to take meals outside.
Honest Abe went a step beyond our typical plans to show what might be done on the exterior of the home by incorporating a fire-pit area and garden house into the back yard.
