Columbia, SC — Recently enacted legislation that provides a tax credit of up to $7,500 to first-time homebuyers makes now the perfect time to buy a Southland Log Home.

Southland Log Homes, headquartered in Columbia, SC, has been making log home dreams come true for 31 years. Their log homes are durable, sustainable, energy-efficient and competitively priced. Now, with the introduction of the tax credit, these homes are even more affordable.

The full tax credit, $7,500, is available for single taxpayers with incomes of $75,000 or less and married couples with incomes of $150,000 or less. The tax credit works like an interest-free loan and must be repaid over a 15-year period. The credit is available for homes purchased on or after April 9, 2008 and before July 1, 2009.

“Aside from being storm proof and fast to build, our homes are affordable and guaranteed for as long as a family lives in them,” says George Miller, president of Southland Log Homes.

Southland Log Homes has identified a collection of log cabin homes that are ideal for first-time homebuyers. Details about the Laurens, Moss Point, Super Greenwood I and Wateree I floor plans and others can be found at For more information on the tax credit, visit
