The Log Home Builders Association Of North America was founded in 1965 has over 45,000 members throughout the world. We are a private educational association.
We have been offering log home building classes for over 40 years. Our two-day (22 hour) log home construction class was offered through the University of Washington’s Experimental College for 108 consecutive terms (over 26 years).
We have been listed in such publications as; A Directory Of National Trade Associations, published by The United States Department Of Commerce; The Encyclopedia Of Associations, published by The Gale Research Company; The National Avocational Organizations Directory, published by Columbia Books; The National Trade and Professional Associations of the United States, also published by Columbia Books; etc.
The primary purpose of our Association is to preserve the “true-and-pure” craft of log home building — to disseminate information about log homes — to pass the craft on to future generations — and to teach people how to “build” or “buy” the best log homes for the least amount of money.
WE PRESERVE OUR CRAFT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS: We have used a variety of methods to accomplish our objectives, including the TWO-DAY SEMINARS (11 HOURS ON SATURDAY AND 11 HOURS ON SUNDAY), Journals, Newsletters, Local Meetings, International Meetings, free log home tours, highly successful Apprenticeship Programs, a free “question and answer” hot-line by phone and/or a free “question and answer” hotline by e-mail.
