Log homes built with modern touch in Dandridge

Log homes built with modern touch in Dandridge

Log homes have a long history in the United States and in East Tennessee.

A local company is continuing the tradition of building the houses by using modern technology.

"We've got Douglas-fir here. This is yellow pine. This is eastern white pine. Then we have some pieces of oak over here, both red and white," Jobe Leonard explained.

Most of the wood at the log home maker in Dandridge comes from trees in and around East Tennessee.
