Southland Log Homes, designer and manufacturer of America’s Favorite Log Home, has launched a special program to assist in the re-building of log homes and log cabin homes lost to wildfires in the Great Smokey Mountain area of Tennessee. The ‘Re-Build Gatlinburg Program’ offers an affordable and straight forward process to allow these homeowners to replace their beloved log cabins.

A key element of the program makes use of Southland’s ability to custom design log home plans and log cabin plans at no additional cost. This will allow homeowners to quickly develop log home plans that closely match the home that they lost, which is a common requirement of insurance settlements. This capability also allows homeowners to save by building Southland’s log cabin kits and log home kits directly onto existing foundations that may have survived the wildfires.

“As the leader of the American log home industry, Southland wants to reach out to the people in eastern Tennessee who have lost their homes, and make them aware of how we can help them re-build”, said Ken Sekley, Southland’s President and CEO. “The Great Smokey Mountain area has a high concentration of log homes, as the residents there recognize how well log homes harmonize with their naturally beautiful region.”
