Honest Abe Celebrates Log Cabin Month 2024

“National Log Cabin Month 2024 is a great opportunity for our guests to experience first-hand the quality and beauty of a log home,” said Josh Beasley, President of Honest Abe Log Homes, a 45-year-old, family-owned custom manufacturer of log and timber frame homes in Moss, Tenn. “We are proud to be part of an industry that is interwoven with the history of our country.”

That history was recognized in the Congressional Record of the United States when Rep. Reid J. Ribble of Wisconsin spoke before Congress in 2012 about the importance of the log home industry, calling it “a quintessential symbol of the American pioneering spirit, embodying America’s strength and ingenuity.” Congress acknowledged that the industry supports thousands of jobs from loggers to manufacturers to builders to sales professionals, as well as the housing market, lending institutions and many others.

“Log cabin production directly supports thousands of jobs from builders to sales professionals, as well as the housing market, lending institutions and many others,” Ribble noted. “The people of this industry are hard-working, charitable and deserving of recognition for their centuries of accomplishment.”

Ribble said that National Log Cabin Month also draws attention to the inherent “green” nature of log homes, noting that they are “economically sustainable, reducing waste and employing materials that put Mother Nature’s beauty at center stage.”

Beasley explained that the modern manufacturing process for log and timber homes utilizes every portion of the log, and pre-cut home packages go up quickly and leave less waste on the job site compared to conventional construction.

“Logs used for construction are solid and uninterrupted,” Beasley said. “Coupled with modern sealant materials and building techniques, this makes log homes highly energy efficient.”

Honest Abe’s four Tennessee Sales Models provide free information about all aspects of log and timber home design. The fully-furnished and decorated log home models manufactured by Honest Abe Log Homes are open for tours Monday-Saturday. Get more information and directions here.

“With four model homes, including our national headquarters and manufacturing plant in Tennessee, and a network of more than four dozen independent dealers across the United States, there’s plenty of opportunity for people to learn more about log homes,” said Josh Beasley, President of Honest Abe Log Homes

“The people of this industry are hard-working, charitable and deserving of recognition for their centuries of accomplishment.”
