Log Home Tours
The Werner’s always had a log home on their “bucket list” going back to when they were dating. Tim’s brother and sister both owned a log home and their warm and homey feeling was captivating. They did come closer to their dream when a friend showed them a property just outside of Greensburg, Pennsylvania. It broke Debbie’s heart when they were outbid by $100; the property was exactly what they were looking for and only over the hill from their daughter. She told her husband, “God wants us there and I am going to claim the property!” A few minutes later the phone rang with the realtor on the line asking if they are still interested, that the other buyer withdrew. The Werner’s got their slice of Heaven after all!
They researched over six different log home companies and even made a $2000 deposit with one of them, but after stumbling on a Hochstetler Log Home construction site they were instantaneously impressed. And, after meeting them in person at the Columbus Log & Timber show they were certain it was the company for them. If asked, Why Hochstetler?, Tim says, “You just felt like family, that close knit feeling, and they offered the true heavy post and beam roof.”
The goal for the Crago’s was to build a forever home, something they could take care of and be comfortable in. Everything on the layout is designed for efficiency and practicality. This is a 3800 sq. ft. home, but every space is utilized from the loft all the way to the basement.
Their advice for home buyers is take your time and do your homework. Look for a company that has been around for years, stand by their product and are transparent, “Honest.”
