Show Me Log Raising 2016 at Missouri Honest Abe Job SiteHonest Abe Independent Dealer in Missouri welcomed visitors to an old-fashioned, two-day log raising.
Independent dealers Robert and Tabitha Stone show visitors how a log home is raised with food, fun, fellowship – just like Missouri’s early settlers would have done it.
Missouri is known as the “show me” state, so Honest Abe Independent Dealers and log home building contractors Robert and Tabitha Stone chose Show Me Log Homes for their Hollister, Missouri, business name. In honor of National Log Cabin Month, the Stones partnered with their clients, the Browns, to host Show Me Log Raising 2016, an old-fashioned log raising at the job site of the Browns’ new Honest Abe log home. Through the photos below, Tabitha shares the activities and excitement of the two-day event.
The tables were decorated with different log profile, and wrapping used to protect Honest Abe homes during transport was used as tablecloths. Early risers enjoyed coffee & doughnuts, while lunch included pulled pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, peanuts, chips and ice-cold tea, water & soda.
This is how it looks when a log home is raised! The Show Me Log Raising was a success for all involved.
Guests were invited come into the home under construction for a close look at each step.
The homeowner wanted to hand hew a log for her home and had the change to do so at the Show Me Log Raising.These personal touches make a custom home even more precious to the people who have waited all their lives to build the home of their dreams.
It did not take long until the logs were going up at the Show Me Log Raising.
Everyone was very excited when the logs were finished. The floor plan selected was the Westfield. Show Me Log Homes helped the Browns modify and customize it for their own needs and budget. It has a walk-out basement and will have a loft when completed.
