We’re very pleased to announce the location for the next
Log & Learn Log Home Planning Seminar and House Tour
in Palestine, Texas. If you’re in the area, please join us on Saturday, March 7th, for this invaluable exploration. It’s free of charge and I encourage you to check out the details here. We’re also exhibiting in Massachusetts in two weeks and in Indiana, Florida and Maine during March.
In this month’s Form+Function series we take a look at the customization and details available in Katahdin Log Homes-many are free of charge! We also focus on the interior of your home with a look at budgeting for tile installations, new faucet options, and space-saving pocket doors. Plus we peer into the crystal ball for new appliances on the horizon to make home tasks easier and more convenient.
If you have any ideas you’d like to see explored in this newsletter, we’d love to hear from you. Just click here to reach us.
