There’s a lot to see and do at a Johnson’s Log Home & Timber Frame Shows, but there’s no need to be overwhelmed.

What’s the difference between a log home and a timber frame home?
This is a good question, and one we often hear. Logs—from log siding to huge handcrafted logs to perfectly shaped milled logs—(in most cases) cover the exterior and interior walls of a log home (though drywall is always an interior option). The timber frame is a beautiful wooden truss that is shown off inside(typically, though it could greet you in an archway); it’s functional beauty that supports the home—and makes for a terrific conversation piece in your great room. In theory, you could combine these elements and have both a log and timber frame home; the possibilities, styles, and designs are endless in these custom homes. Come to Johnson’s Log Home & Timber Frame Shows and learn what’s right for you and your tastes!
What if I don’t have land?
Discover just what home you want as you continue looking for that perfect parcel. You’ll hear suggestions regarding the ideal property and specific considerations, and you may even find the land listing that’s right for you.
Wherever you are in the log and timber frame home process, Our log home shows & timber frame shows have exhibitors, seminars, and demonstrations to keep you moving forward in your home journey.
