The tour begins at The Cambridge, Honest Abe Crossville’s Model Home. Stop there for the tour map and refreshments beginning at 10 a.m. on Dec. 8. The model is a 2,900-square-foot, two-story dovetailed D-log home surrounded by 1,700 feet of porches. To learn more about the Cambridge, visit Christmas at the Cambridge. While there, step into Crossville’s original model home, The Frontier, a dovetailed chinked square log two-story cabin built in 1991. The Crossville Model Home complex is located at 448 Crabtree Road Crossville, Tenn.
Completed in 2017, the Long Family Home is an 1,904-square-foot, dovetailed D-log home created from a customized Honest Abe Appalachian plan. A one-story home ideal for aging in place, the home has two bedrooms, an office and a covered porch wrapping around a great room and kitchen. Outdoors, you’ll see a garage that shows how Honest Abe can create wood siding for garages and other structures to match your home.
The Bertzel timber frame project by Honest Abe Independent Dealer Mountain Stream Log Homes and currently under construction by Honest Abe Log Homes is created from an Honest Abe Log Homes Madison Plan. It is approximately 1,700 square feet with a full basement and is located in a beautiful wooded area on the Cumberland Plateau. This stop provides the opportunity to see how our timber frame panels are used with wood components and other materials like stone, siding, etc., in construction.
The 1,600-square-foot Clayton Cabin was a creative collaboration between Honest Abe and homeowners who conceived of a cabin that captured the simplicity, beauty and spirit of early pioneer log homes. Honest Abe’s Genesis 6” x 12” square log style reproduces the historic exterior the homeowners imagined, while interior options like wide-plank flooring, candlelight-only overhead lighting and exposed beams maintain the ambience of an early Tennessee cabin.
