2018 Honest Abe Dealer Conference

2018 Honest Abe Dealer Conference

LogHomesByJack.com Attends 2018 Honest Abe Log Homes Dealer Conference. Monday. January 29, 2018.

Jack and Sally Hutslar of LogHomesByJack.com, Independent Dealers of Honest Abe custom manufactured log and timber frame homes in Forest and Smith Mountain Lake VA, recently attended the Honest Abe Log Homes 2018 National Dealer Conference.
“Independent dealers like Jack and Sally play an integral role in the stability and success of Honest Abe,” said Jeff Clements, Vice President of Honest Abe Log Homes, a 39-year-old, family-owned company headquartered in Moss, Tennessee. 

“Dealers provide guidance and support throughout the process of designing and building the log or timber home that the homeowner has only visualized.”
Clements said that each of Honest Abe’s Independent Dealers is assigned a geographic region for which they are granted exclusive dealership rights, ensuring that the entire United States is covered by the dealer network.

Jack and Sally, owners of LogHomesByJack.com, cover Bedford County, Smith Mountain Lake, Roanoke and Lynchburg in Virginia plus Forsyth and Guilford Counties in North Carolina.

The Hutslars joined other Honest Abe dealers from across the country who traveled to Cookeville, Tennessee, on Jan. 25-26 for product updates, sales training and achievement recognition.

Then on Jan. 27 the Independent Dealers visited Honest Abe’s National Headquarters and manufacturing facility in Moss, Tennessee, for a Log Raising and Mill Tour open to the public. Members of the Honest Abe team constructed a small log structure, demonstrating and describing the building process. It was standing room only, as usual.
The conference finale was a tour of the home of April and Nick Patterson, co-owners of Honest Abe. Their new home is the first to be constructed of Honest Abe’s 10” Round Log, a new offering introduced in 2017.

WOO = We Offer Options

WOO Means

We Offer Options

By Jack Hutslar
Owner . est 2001
What does this mean when referring to Log and Timber Frame Homes? Please allow me to give you a few examples of the options that we offer when discussing the style, design, and layout of your future home.
Keep in mind, when designing “your” home, you need not settle for what some other person or couple had decided to build. In that regard, if you lived in a home that you really liked, we can recreate that home for you as either a log home or timber frame home.
Back to options now. What choices do we provide for you?
[1] 1st or 2nd floor master [loft?] bedroom suite can be customized to your liking. [2] Other guest bathrooms. [3] Upper loft or bedroom?
[4] Back deck can be configured as a screened in porch. [5] Enlarge or shrink the footprint. [6] Add more porch or porches.
[7] Add a basement or build on a crawl space. [8] Add a one or two car garage – free standing, connected, under. [9] Add a breezeway.
[10] 10 log styles. [11] 4 window systems. [12] 5 roof systems.
[13] Incorporate other plans. [14] Log or Timber Frame? Finally, [15] Does your final design fit your budget ideas or do we need to look again at more and less costly options?
Some companies have set designs. Some companies might also add on “change fees” when you alter their designs. Making modifications and changes is what we do to design the home that just right for you … and there is no added fee to make these changes.
= = = = =
We offer a very good combination of Price, Quality of Materials and Service. When “their” Price looks good, then start asking specific questions about the Quality of Materials including the actual package content and Service including warranties.
Jack Hutslar is an authorized dealer for Honest Abe Log Homes, Sansin Enviro Stains and Eagle Panel Systems. Offered also are stain and repair services.
