How We Do It

For twenty years, we have combing the southeast for original log cabins. Often these old log homes have been covered up in siding, hiding the beautiful logs but also offering protection from the elements. We have developed sources for finding these gems, and have perfected the art of building brand new log homes, some with modern floor plans, some re-erected exactly "as found", in a way would fool the pioneers that built them. We renotch the ancient logs, cut dove tail corners by hand and chink with our own concoction that does not look, well, plastic.

We dismantle these original log homes, then ship the logs back to our site in Chattanooga. We then incorporate the antique logs into your plan for your new log home. If you don't have a house plan, we will be happy to help you design your log home based on your tastes, budget, lifestyle and your building site.

Once your log home is built to your specifications on our site in Chattanooga, we number the logs, take them down and ship them to your site wherever it may be. We will then send out an on-site advisor to oversee the reassembly of the log home. Then you or your contractor will finish out the log home according to your plans.


By recycling these beautiful antique logs that are in mint condition, you not only give new life to a piece of history, but you save countless new timbers from being felled.


Every one of our logs has a story to tell. They have seen our country grow from its infancy to now; some have seen the births of great men within their walls, many have stood through more than one war, and all have outlived the men who cut them.
