Woods Hill Log Homes - Mountain City, Tennessee


Bjorn and Nancie Svensen

Congratulations to Bjorn and Nanci Svensen! Bjorn recently retired as an electrical engineer for Norwegian Cruise Lines and moved to Mountain City, Tennessee from Miami, FL. Bjorn says that Mountain City reminds him of his native Norway.

Nancie works for Norwegian Cruise Lines out of her home setting up cruises for groups!

Since Bjorn is an electrical engineer, he is wiring his own home. Our local electrical inspector took one look at his work and said "You definitely know what you're doing!"

Their home is in the Buffalo Ridge log home subdivision in Mountain City. From their house site, one can see the mountains of three states: Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. We have had many barbecues on their knoll and look forward to an open house celebration this summer!!!

Your Home - Built Your Way

When you wake up in the morning, you are in the home of your dreams, designed by you. Our goal at Woods Hill Log Homes is to make this a reality – your reality. Honest Abe Log Homes specialized in giving customers “what they’ve always wanted”. We are Reeves and Deanna Snyder, owners of Woods Hill Log Homes in Mountain City, Tennessee, and have been dealers for twenty years. Building relationships is key to our business.

Building Your New Home

Most of our customers have done a lot of research. Typically, it has taken two years to narrow down floor plans and the supplier. We recommend log home magazines to get ideas. Build a notebook of things you like as well as things you do not. This helps when we draw the floor plan.

There are several options when it comes to building the home.
1. Woods Hill Log Homes has a list of recommended builders. We are available for the interviewing process.
2. The customer has already chosen his own builder.
3. Honest Abe Log Home crew dries in the home and a recommended builder completes it.

For all of these options, the customer deals directly with the builder once the materials are delivered. Woods Hill Log Homes will visit the house site periodically.


At the signing of the Purchase Agreement, a $1500 deposit is required to draw up the floor plans.
50% of the purchase price is required to put the home on the cutting list.
The balance is due upon delivery of the materials.
