Logapalooza McHenry MD Update!


Tour Multiple Katahdin Log Homes at Logapalooza!Logapalooza mchenry md

You will not want to miss this fall’s Logapalooza McHenry Md in this four-season resort area. Nestled in the hills bordering the Deep Creek Lake resort area, this is a splendid setting for some spectacular Katahdin Cedar Log Homes. Last spring, we launched Logapalooza in Vermont, where the opportunity to tour multiple Katahdin homes in one afternoon made it a special experience. This time, folks from Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Washington, DC, and all points in between are invited to join us for this amazing Deep Creek resort event!

Our log home seminar, to be held on the beautiful campus of Garrett College, is unmatched for information and details to answer all your questions. But here’s what makes this Logapalooza so special: a one-of-a-kind opportunity to TOUR MULTIPLE LOG HOMES in the Deep Creek area (4-6 tour homes and 6-9 drive-by homes).

We’ll be hosting our day-long program starting with our comprehensive seminar to learn more about building the Katahdin Log Home of your dreams. Then after the seminar and a complementary lunch, we’ll tour *4 to 6* nearby log homes so you can experience first-hand the look and feel of a finished log home. More homes— *6 to 9*—will be noted for drive-by viewing. The possibilities are endless when it comes to your own design, and you’ll see some outstanding examples of Katahdin’s well-designed, energy efficient cedar log homes.

Make a it a weekend of log home fun! We’ve set aside a limited number of rooms at the Wisp Resort  for confirmed attendees on a first-come-first-serve basis. You’ll have the opportunity to make a weekend out of Logapalooza and still make it home in time to hand out treats to the little goblins and ghosts!
