LOG HOME INDUSTRY VETERAN: 34 YEARS IN TEXAS, 14 YEARS IN UTAH, NOW EXPANDING TO THE EAST

Satterwhite Log Homes, builder and supplier of log homes for over three decades, has built an Eastern Division Office in North Georgia. The company will host a Grand Opening Saturday, April 26, 2008 at the newly constructed, 3-story model home and office, located four miles north of Ellijay.

The event will be open to the public from 9 a.m. until 5p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the company owners, learn about log home building, and tour the new facility.

The building is unique in that the basement serves as the sales office with a display lobby, while the main floor and second floor serve as a model home. The structure is a showcase in itself, and was constructed so that it displays a variety of unique wood applications, using many of the different wood products Satterwhite Log Homes has to offer.

The three bedroom, 3 bath model home is fully furnished and decorated, and features granite countertops, hickory and walnut cabinets, solid oak floors, ceramic tile in the kitchen and utility room, and carpet throughout the bedrooms. The floor plan emphasizes an open layout with an abundance of space, and gable glass windows offering fantastic views.

Satterwhite Log Homes intends to better serve its customers in the eastern United States through its new office in Ellijay, where consumers may purchase a variety of shapes, sizes and species of house logs to construct their log home or log building. In addition to house logs, the company offers a vast array of unique specialty wood finishing materials from log siding to custom sawn timber, mantels, decking and beams.

Additional products available include tongue and groove lumber paneling, round stock, log staircase and railing components, custom log and timber mantels, log posts, rafters, ridge beams, tongue and groove decking, and one-inch lumber. Satterwhite Log Homes also offers a variety of species to choose from including aspen, Scandinavian spruce, blue ponderosa pine, eastern white pine, western red cedar, spruce Douglas fir, and cypress.

Satterwhite Log Homes prides itself on its quality of products. Satterwhite logs are exclusively cut from dead standing timber found at almost inaccessible, 10,000-foot elevations in the Rocky Mountains. Spruce beetle epidemics kill most of the timber, but the wood’s structural integrity remains intact.

As the trees die, the dry climate naturally cures and thoroughly dries the trees for years, sometimes decades, as they become strong and energy efficient. This process is not only environmentally friendly, but it provides stable, dry wood products, and completes the circle of sustainable forestry.

Satterwhite Log Homes, founded in 1974 in Longview, Texas, is an independent, family-owned business involved in every facet of the log home industry. Satterwhite crews harvest the dead standing timber, manufacture house logs, and market the homes. The company contributes its success to its business philosophy, quality of products, and commitment to customers.

The company’s main headquarters is located in Longview, Texas, with its primary mill and Western Sales Office located in Gunnison, Utah. For more information about Satterwhite Log Homes call 800-918-6881 or visit the Web site at www.SLH.net.
