Southland Log Homes, designer and manufacturer of America’s Favorite Log Home™, received two national Awards for Excellence in Home Design presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Southland received top design honors for best log homes in both the “under 2000 square feet” and “2000 to 3000 square feet” categories. The winning designs were both constructed in 2014.  The awards were presented at the industry’s annual conference in October.

“Winners of this year’s awards did a phenomenal job of showcasing the best marketing and home designs in the building systems industry,” said 2014 Building Systems Council chairman, Jason Blenker.
