Down Home Log Home Success Stories

Frank and Suzy Donaldson

We met Frank and Suzy Donaldson in Mobile at a Log Home Workshop and not long after they decided to put their dream log home on our 2 Year- NO interest Layaway Plan... At the time they did not know what plan they wanted, only that they knew they would work with us to fulfill their log home dream. Over the next 2 years they communicated that they had a team that would be working with them: Steve Mueller, GC, and Steve Ratley, Architect and boy did they get involved. Steve came up with their special design that would overlook the Pearl River in Louisiana! Of course at the time no one knew that they would be hindered by the Hurricane Katrina, but they are survivors! Shortly thereafter we regrouped and progress was on the way! See here the beginning of their log home progress and visit often to see how beautiful their log home will be! We look forward to helping them along the way and know that the Donaldson’s will have a magnificent log home!

Blessings to everyone who shares their log home dream!

Log Homes have the ability to absorb the tremors of an earthquake making it by far the best material for construction, more so than any other.
