40 Years of Log Home Ex­cel­lence

Log Home Living - - BRANCHING OUT -

In a world of “here to­day, gone to­mor­row” com­merce, keep­ing any com­pany go­ing for a decade is an ac­com­plish­ment. But 40 years in busi­ness? Now that’s some­thing to crow about. Ri­p­ley, West Vir­ginia-based Ap­palachian Log Struc­tures is proudly cel­e­brat­ing its 40th an­niver­sary, pro­vid­ing beau­ti­ful log homes to ea­ger own­ers across the United States and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

“The am­bi­ence of a log home is a dra­matic de­par­ture from the av­er­age stick-built house,” states Dou­glas Par­sons, Pres­i­dent of Ap­palachian Log Struc­tures. “The evo­lu­tion of en­ergy-ef­fi­cient build­ing com­po­nents and Ap­palachian’s pres­sure-treat­ing process, com- bined with the dis­tinc­tive at­tributes of wood as a nat­u­ral in­su­la­tor, make to­day’s mod­ern log home highly de­sir­able.”

De­liv­er­ing more than 4,000 pre­cut log home pack­ages to date, the com­pany spe­cial­izes in cus­tom- de­signed log homes, cab­ins and com­mer­cial struc­tures for buy­ers look­ing for the unique ap­peal and eco-friendly en­vi­ron­ment of an all-wood home. Ex­posed log walls, soar­ing beamed ceil­ings and ex­pan­sive tim­ber-framed porches all add to what en­thu­si­asts de­scribe as the “un­de­ni­able warmth and co­zi­ness” of log home liv­ing.

With seven dif­fer­ent pro­files and cor­ner notches avail­able in a full 6- or 8-inch thick­ness, the pos­si­bil­i­ties for cus­tomiza­tion are end­less. To jump start the de­sign process, Ap­palachian of­fers more than 75 pre-de­signed floor plans rang­ing from 500 to 3,700 square feet. Plant tours and log home work­shops are

avail­able to ed­u­cate log home en­thu­si­asts and builders about the con­struc­tion process, fi­nanc­ing and other vi­tal steps re­quired for a suc­cess­ful project. And a net­work of ex­pe­ri­enced sales con­sul­tants based in West Vir­ginia, as well as in­de­pen­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tives in 10 ad­di­tional states, are avail­able to an­swer your ques­tions and make your log home dreams come true. Visit ap­plog.com for in­for­ma­tion.

Ap­palachian has been a mem­ber of the Log and Tim­ber Homes Coun­cil, part of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Home Builders, for more than 30 years. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ap­palachian Log Struc­tures on 40 suc­cess­ful years!

RIGHT: Af­ter four decades and 4,000 homes (and count­ing), Ap­palachian Log Struc­tures still pro­vides per­son­al­ized ser­vice and beau­ti­ful homes to its cus­tomers.
