In early America, the most plentiful resource was the tree. The early pioneers formed a sturdy structure by stacking the trimmed and stripped trees on top of each other and notching the ends to form the four walls. When the walls were high enough they laid limbs and small logs across to make a roof frame. The space between the logs was plugged with mud mixed with grass or moss. Building these structures took basic hard labor-hand and back power, producing structures that have lasted and will last hundreds of years.
This was the earliest kind of Log Home Building common in Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee where Mountain Construction builds log homes today. Using new techniques to enhance comfort and energy efficiency, Mountain Construction has built a name and reputation that honors the timber builders of the past.
