Toby Deal started in the log home business in 1986 as a single male looking for a cozy and efficient home. After acquiring a lot outside of Martinsville, Virginia; he considered several home choices but chose a cedar log home package from Cedardale Log Homes of Greensboro, N. C. Toby decided to become a dealer for this company to enable his home to be completed in an efficient manner. He is now a dealer for Honest Abe Log Homes out of Moss, Tennessee. Below is the Deal crew (I seek out their opinion before making any major decision)!

NOTE: A few companies still do not kiln-dry their logs and cut costs by not doing so. Stay away from these companies even if they are a bit cheaper than ones who kiln-dry. Below are some of the satisfied home owners we have helped. All of our customers will gladly give us excellent references!

That bad situation soon was turned into a good one since he loved all the special features that log home living enabled, and also loved helping customers make their many decisions. The post and beam home of northern white cedar was warm and cozy, but somewhat expensive. So he decided to look into other options for his customers. The "factory direct" option was his first choice, but he also wanted a quality product with excellent service.
After much research, getting married to a wonderful woman, and having 4 wonderful daughters (see above); he decided to also offer a non-precut white pine option that came factory direct from Maggie Valley, NC. This worked out great for many years and his customers were very pleased. Together they even offered several seminars on how to build and maintain a log home.
However, when the president of the company retired and his son took over, things were not as smooth. This led to the relationship with Honest Abe Log Homes beginning in 1998, and he has remained with this company (even as picky as he is) until the present.
Honest Abe Log Homes manufacture pre-cut, kiln-dried, white pine packages and offer many styles and sizes of logs. This new factory direct option along with the white cedar offered his customers almost every option imaginable option. So you will have access to 3 log home companies and all at factory direct prices!
