In July 2013 consumers can discover how to build their dream log home.
Washington, D.C. – April 9, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Once raised on “Bonanza,” and “Gunsmoke,” today Baby Boomers in record numbers are building dream homes made from logs. Boomers are drawn to these rustic residences because they offer a sense of sanctuary and a connection to nature that no stick frame home can duplicate.
In 2012 Congress formally honored the log home industry for its “quintessential symbol of the American pioneering spirit, embodying America’s strength and ingenuity.”
That’s why the Log Homes Council is celebrating National Log Home Open House Month this July, 2013. Companies that belong to the Log Homes Council will be hosting model home tours, log raising demonstrations, factory tours, buying seminars and much more. “This month long celebration will give consumers everything they need to know to make their dream log home a reality,” says Randy Comber, Log Homes Council President and founder of a log home company in Greenville, Maine. “Many of log home owners report that merely living in a log home provides them with a sense of sanctuary and connection to Mother Nature that is calming. Coming home feels like going on vacation.”
Only trust members of the Log Homes Council to make your dream home a reality. That’s because all council members must:
• Abide by a strict code of ethics
• Grade their logs and timbers by third party agencies to ensure quality
• Provide construction manuals to ensure homes are built to meet building codes
• Sponsor scientific studies that advance log building technologies
• Provide FREE information to help consumers make smart choices
“This means when you buy from a company that belongs to the Log Homes Council, peace of mind comes standard,” says Randy Comber, Log Homes Council President. “Each company that belongs to the council has adopted policies that will protect your investment.” To learn more about the events in July visit www.loghomes.org.
