In 2001, we added another growth ring to the “tree of life” and
we celebrated 30 years of being pioneers in the wave of log home
building that started in the early seventies. We have been involved
in well over 600 homes since the hanging out of our first
shingle out and this year we’ve added more. Every home has a
story and in each story we find the beginning of another adventure
that makes “log home living” the treasure it is.
For Neil and Joan Gates, they dreamed of a log home since being married and almost built a modular. Several log home open houses and a practical design allowed them to make their budget and order a Real Log Home.
Ed Schoen has been building homes since 1976 and writing about them since 1997.
