On My Honor - Appalachian Log Structures & The Boy Scouts

Boy Scout Camp

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

I'm sure there are plenty of you who remember growing up in the "scouts".  Whether it was Brownies, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, there are a lot of grown ups today who have fond memories of the great times spent with other youngsters doing a lot of fun things. 

I remember the uniforms, the meetings, gathering in the Fellowship Hall at our Church to race the Pine Wood Derby car that Dad and I worked so hard on.  There were also some camp outings, cooking over an open camp fire and other such activities that bring back LOTS of good memories.

Today's Scouting is MUCH different with all sorts of new activities that young people can get in to.  In 2013, the Boy Scouts National Jamboree will be held at the Summit in West Virginia (our Home State!) and you should see what they have in store....(see video below)!

In 2011 Appalachian Log Structures was asked by one of the sub-contractors on the Summit project to pre-assemble some of the 300+ bathhouses that are being built on the site.  Since we are known for our manufacturing of log homes and other wood building components it was a good match.  We worked with the sub contractor to come up with a mass production type of assembly for all of the panels and other pre-built components for these structures.  When the pre-assembled components were off-loaded at the site, they were quickly installed and completed by the contractor (see photo above). 

We are honored to be chosen to assist the Boy Scouts in their new venture and are excited to see how it all turns out next year when the Summit is visited by the thousands of Boy Scouts from all over the world.  Not only will it bring awareness to the Boy Scouts, but also to West Virginia and Appalachian Log Structures.

As you will see from the video, West Virginia has lots of outdoor activities to offer which makes it a wonderful destination even if you are not a Boy Scout.  Lots of folks who plan a visit to one of our Plant Tour/Seminars held in Princeton, WV will also schedule a long weekend to take advantage of the outdoor adventures that are located close by.

Whether it's a log home, log siding, log railing or other log home building materials that you need, or other wood components that need some milling, pre-cutting or pre-assembly, Appalachian Log Structures is just the company to provide you with quality products and workmanship.

If you are considering some type of commercial structure instead of a residential structure we can also assist you.  We've done several hundred of these commercial type structures over the past 35+ years and will be happy to assist you as well.  Contact one of your Local Log Home Building Consultants to help you get started.
