Cool Stuff Being Made: Conestoga Log Cabins

By February 23, 2008Cool Stuff Being Made

The iconic American frontier home — a log cabin — takes on modern attributes at Conestoga Log Cabins, the Lebanon, Penn., manufacturer of log house kits.

From Conestoga’s “About Us” site:

The idea for Conestoga Log Cabins and Homes was developed over twenty years ago. In 1983, after over ten years of various designs and several generations of machinery, Conestoga produced its first cabin for the campground industry under the name Conestoga Log Cabins. The initial concepts and processes from those early years have evolved into a streamlined 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

And in this week’s Cool Stuff Being Made, Bill Keller Jr., a company vice president and co-owner, walks us through that facility to show us how it’s done. Laminated logs? You bet.

Thanks to the good people at Pennsylvania Cable Network for pointing us to Conestoga’s direction.
