Hearthstone Log Homes

Hearthstone gets exposure with Log Home Diary...

Merrill in TNKent and Midge Merrill in Jonesborough, TN built the “Cataloochee Cabin”. Hearthstone supplied the Bob Timberlake® package for the cabin. Kent used various materials and did all the interior woodworking himself. Kent kept a photo-journal of the step-by-step process, which will be illustrated in three upcoming issues of Log Home Design magazine. You can see the finished product here.

Kent and Midge have special memories of staying at 'The Swag' (A North Carolina inn that is well-known for it’s “Natural Elegance”). They took many inspirations from their visits there and used many recycled materials for the interior of the cabin. In turn, the materials used create many ‘stories’ to tell. One example is the Chestnut barn wood that was retrieved from a barn in the area that was being torn down. Kent scraped the vines from the boards and applied finish to all the surfaces. During the cleaning of the boards, he found where someone had carved their name of "Alvin" and the date of "1935" into one of the boards. Kent proudly used the board as paneling on an interior wall, for all to see.

The Bob Timberlake® product line features extensive timber framing and massive logs (14"-24" in height). The logs are naturally contoured on the top and bottom (at the chink joint), but hewn flat on the sides—as they were 200 years ago. They are a better-than-the-original reproduction of the look and feel of those 200-year-old homes.
