History of Appalachian Log Structures

Just as every house has a story, every company has a history that reflects the reason for its being. Ours is a family story that started more than 40 years ago with the patriarch of our family and founder of Appalachian Log Structures, Fletcher R. Parsons.fletcher-2-rgb

In 1977, Fletcher decided to put his more than 30 years of experience in log and heavy-timber manufacturing and wood preservatives to the true test: he started a log home company. Not only was he responding to a need for high-quality log structures for housing and commercial use, he was embarking upon his idea of a dream come-true.

Appalachian Log Structures, a manufacturer of log cabin kit building materials and packages.  Delivering over 4000 manufactured precut log home kits nationally and internationally, the company specializes in custom designing log homes, cabins, and commercial structures for customers looking for the unique and eco-friendly environment of wood. Exposed log walls, soaring beamed ceilings, and expansive timber framed porches all add to what customers describe as the “warmth and coziness” of log home living.

With seven different profiles and corner notches available in a full 6” or 8” thickness the possibilities for customization are endless. Appalachian offers over 75 predesigned log cabin floor plans ranging from 378 to 3700 square feet to jump start the design process. The company also hosts several plant tour and log home workshops to educate log home enthusiasts and builders about the design process, financing, and other steps required for a successful building project.  Highly trained and experienced Sales Consultants are available for appointments in Ripley, WV as well as a network of Independent Representatives in over 10 states.  A leader in the log home industry, Appalachian has been a member of the Log Home Council, a part of the National Association of Home Builders, for over 30 years and has provided their expertise while serving in a variety of leadership positions.

Our company has been successful in meeting the challenges of the unique character of the log home industry and family members continue to guide the company through the ever changing residential and commercial building market with a commitment to manufacturing and delivering the best graded and milled log cabin kit building materials to your job site.
