COLUMBUS - The Log and Timber Home Show sponsored by Active Interest Media, publishers of Log Home Living, Log Home Design and Timber Home Living, was held recently in Columbus and was a great hit with young and old looking to build their dream house.
Log houses capture that feeling of country combined with wilderness living and fulfill a desire to rough it. However, log home living is far from roughing it. Building a log home is not a small-ticket project. House plans were available for houses of all sizes, but mostly large. Photos of completed log houses ranged from commercial lodges to gigantic family fortresses in deep woods overlooking canyons.
This show, one of several over the United States, drew exhibitors from many states. Besides mock-up facades of modern day rustic homes of logs, there were bathtubs, books, magazines, log furniture, floral arrangements, tableware and lots of other decorative accents.
