Celebrating the rich tradition, value of log homes

If you’ve been dreaming about a cozy log home nestled in our beautiful mountains, you’re not alone. More and more Tennesseans are building modern versions of these rustic residences steeped in tradition in our great state.

The warmth of wood, the solid construction and that powerful connection to nature add up to a feeling of safety and sanctuary that many of us crave in today’s uncertain world.

There are several reasons why log homes are attractive for today’s homebuyer. Modern log and timber homes can easily meet or exceed the performance of conventional construction.

Log homes have a faster construction time and less labor costs when compared to conventional construction.

And today’s modern log and timber homes do not require any more maintenance than conventional homes.

Finding the right building professional to turn your dream of log and timber home living into a reality takes time and research. The Log and Timber Homes Council of the National Association of Home Builders is a wonderful place to start.

The council has adopted membership requirements that protect consumers during the buying and building process. All LTHC members follow specific standards and a uniform code of ethics and each member stays abreast of innovative technology to ensure customer satisfaction and a quality product.

LTHC members celebrate log homes during National Log Homes Month in July through online education sessions, virtual tours and in person events. This is a terrific opportunity to see firsthand all the benefits of log homes and if log home living is right for you.
