Down Home Log Home Success Stories

We measure the effectiveness of our business by the satisfaction of our customers. We know how the beauty of a log home that's custom made just for you can really make "coming home" something special. And we want to share that feeling with everyone!

Here are a few of our customers that we'd like you to meet. We're in the process of interviewing and photographing even more homes... but for now, may we introduce you to:
