Top 5 Reasons to Build a Log Home NOW

Top 5 Reasons

I could tell you that you should build a log home…but why? I have to be able to back up my statement, right?  Well, there are many reasons why you should build a log home and I’m going to tell you the top 5.   

I chatted with Steve Hall, part of our executive team, who has been at Hearthstone for 22+ years. I wanted to get his perspective on a few reasons to build a log home that are most important and relevant for 2019 and 2020. While I thought he would focus on technology, capacity, and Newport’s CNC capabilities, his answers might surprise you (they did me!):   Below are the top 5 reasons he came up with.

1. Log Homes are Scalable

Essentially, with a log home, it can be as large or as small as you want based on your personal taste and preferences.  If you’re looking for a large cabin with plenty of space and open family areas, great. If you’re looking for a small cozy cabin with a more intimate close-knit layout, great, too.  We can custom design for any square footage or you can bring us your plans. Either way, it will be gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, and customized to what you want and need.

2. Log Homes create a special place to relax.

Today, everyone is go-go-go with not a minute to spare.  A log home is a medium in which a group of people or even just one person can slow down and take in the moment and relax for a bit. After all, you can only live each day once! Spend your time in a log home. We assure customers it will be the most well-spent time of their day.

3. Authenticity is scarce today.

 To say you own a genuine, top-of-the-line Log Home just sounds good to the ears. It goes much deeper than the surface, though.  A log home will last you a lifetime. I’ll just give you a minute to let that sink in . . . . . o k a y, let us continue: With one of our log homes, you will have a full assurance that you truly have the BEST there is and will feel the safest and warmest in your own log home.  We guarantee it!

4. Connections are created in a Log Home.

By connections, I mean new friends will be made, old friends will be rekindled, and the purest memories will be made and cherished forever.  This will be a cornerstone for your past, present, and future. Center your holidays, milestones, or even something as simple as a home-cooked Sunday lunch surrounded by 4 genuine log walls. How powerful is that?!

5. Last but certainly not least, Hearthstone Log Homes JUST BELONG.

By that, I mean you should spend some time looking through our project gallery.  Managed properly, our log homes look like they have been on the homeowner property for 200 years. Despite some of the log home companies that are out of business now, an authentic traditional log home JUST BELONGS wherever it is built. 

Log homes create a perfect blend and transition with the seasons of the year and the seasons of your life.  Whether surrounded by mountains, lakes, or rivers, the solitude and strength of your Hearthstone Log Home will be the perfect fit.

Lastly, our log homes are like a large piece of fine furniture.  I think people can relate to that, with all the dovetails and unique joinery.  You have a fine (top shelf) furniture and you have a “department store” grade furniture.  The real log home client wants a top shelf, and that is us.
