Early in the 1980's, our culture of handcrafting, heavy timber construction and historical reproduction led us to develop our Timber Frame Homes. Now, most of our homes have elements of both log and timber frame construction.
Hearthstone began thousands of homes ago in 1971 as a restorer of old log homes in the southern Appalachian mountains. It wasn't long until there were more people who wanted those homes than there were old logs for restoration. So, we set about learning how to craft new homes with the strength and character of those original log and heavy timber homes.
We began as restorers of 150-200-year-old structures, and that heritage still drives us today. Our log homes remain what they were at our modest, yet proud, beginning: faithful reproductions of those aged, heart-stopping, hewn, and dove-tailed homes that were the pride and labor of our forefathers.
