“In the late 70s, not long after enlisting with the US Air Force, we purchased some property in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Since that time and through out our travels, we had always planned on coming back to Potter County and building a log home on that site, and that it most likely wouldn’t happen until our retirement from the US Air Force some 20 or so years later.
In 1999, we were ready to do just that. We looked at different options for building a log home and Southland Log Homes was definitely one of our options. We’re not really sure why we initially decided against Southland, other than ordering a kit from another state and wondering how we would bring it all together seemed to be quite overwhelming.
So, in the fall of 1999, we had decided to stay local and thus entered into agreement to have a log home erected using local logs from a local contractor. Then just a few weeks before construction was to begin, we received a call that our logs were no longer available and the contractor was backing out on us. We then contacted a local dealer of Southland and started working with Southland Log Homes directly for the design and ordering of our home. It was then that everything started to come together.
All we can say is, if it weren’t for Southland’s great customer sales and service folks along with our hard and dedicated work, we wouldn’t have met our tight schedule that was, of course, being keyed on beating the coming typical and sometimes harsh Pennsylvania winter. Lucky for us and thanks to you, we were able to move in before the worst part of winter hit.
The look and quality of our home certainly sets it apart from what we nearly had. We couldn’t be more pleased with our log home. There is no end to the compliments we receive for both the inside and outside decor of our home. Thank you.”
