A Little About Us

Back in 1974, nobody in Texas had seen a new log home in almost 100 years. Sam Satterwhite was a young man fresh out of college, building a "bachelor pad"; a small but unusual A-frame house just a few hundred yards from his parent's home. As he chatted with a passerby, a question came that would change his life:

"Sam, if you can build something as different as an A-frame, how about building me a log home?" - Bill Snow in 1974

Today, Satterwhite Log Homes is one of the nation's leading log home companies. Tens of thousands of families have built with Satterwhite. You can find Satterwhite homes in virtually every state, and all around the world.

Quality products require the highest quality raw materials. Unlike most log home companies who use locally convenient materials, Satterwhite has searched the entire North American continent seeking wood with exact characteristics.

The log home industry is notorious for endless debates about wood species. But one factor is a constant, regardless of tree type, and that is moisture content. The simple fact is that living trees have high water content, and that the dimensions of wood change dramatically as it dries after being cut.

By starting with trees that have been killed by natural causes, then allowed to dry over time in arid conditions of the American West, Satterwhite sidesteps all the issues and costs of working with green cut living trees. And, it turns out, the natural solution is the best solution for thorough dryness and long term stability.

Besides superior performance, many people prefer building their log home without cutting living trees.
