From the sim­ple and util­i­tar­ian log cab­ins of fron­tier lore to 21st cen­tury lux­ury liv­ing, log homes have been part of the Amer­i­can land­scape for hun­dreds of years. Now en­ter­ing its 41st year of op­er­a­tion, the Log and Tim­ber Homes Coun­cil strives to cel­e­brate and pro­tect log home liv­ing for gen­er­a­tions to come.

“Coun­cil mem­bers are true stew­ards of the log and tim­ber home in­dus­try,” says Robert Wright­man, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of True North Log Homes and the 2018 chair­man of the Log and Tim­ber Homes Coun­cil, part of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Home Builders. “Whether con­duct­ing con­sumer ed­u­ca­tion ini­tia­tives or en­sur­ing log homes are pro­tected in to­day’s build­ing codes, mem­ber-com­pa­nies are at the fore­front of our in­dus­try.”

Rep­re­sent­ing North Amer­i­can log and tim­ber home man­u­fac­tur­ers, mem­bers vol­un­tar­ily pledge to:

• Abide by a strict code of ethics,

• Grade their logs and tim­bers by third

party agen­cies to en­sure qual­ity, • Sup­ply de­tailed con­struc­tion man­u­als to

en­sure cor­rect con­struc­tion tech­niques, • Spon­sor sci­en­tific stud­ies that ad­vance

log-build­ing tech­nolo­gies, and • Pro­vide free in­for­ma­tion to help con

sumers make smart choices.

You can help the coun­cil cel­e­brate ev­ery­thing log homes this sum­mer dur­ing Na­tional Log Home Open House Month. In­tro­duced in July 2012 by now-re­tired Wis­con­sin Con­gress­man Reid Rib­ble, the Con­gres­sional Record rec­og­nizes the log home in­dus­try, as

well as the men and women vi­tal to this spe­cial sect of hous­ing. Since its in­cep­tion, mem­bers of the Log and Tim­ber Homes Coun­cil have pro­moted log home own­er­ship dur­ing Na­tional Log Home Open House Month by host­ing fac­tory tours, log rais­ing demon­stra­tions and ad­di­tional events geared to­ward buy­ers.

“Coun­cil mem­bers al­ways rally be­hind Log Homes Open House Month,” says Rob. “It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to ed­u­cate the pub­lic about mod­ern log home man­u­fac­tur­ing and liv­ing.”
