In a classroom setting, Sam Satterwhite, founder and president, speaks in morning and afternoon sessions, sharing his experience with thousands of log homes and covering practical aspects of building a log home. Sam's down-to-earth style will help you understand many details on how to translate your ideas into efficient, economical action and clarifies what to expect during the construction phase. You will leave with a better understanding and overview of the homebuilding process, something sure to benefit whether you ultimately build a log home or a conventional house. Year after year, this seminar draws outstanding marks - and many people choose to attend more than once!
We knock ourselves out to have great food and a great program. Chartered buses are at standby after lunch to do a whirlwind tour of homes before the afternoon seminar session. At the conclusion of Sam's afternoon presentation, we board the buses again for another home tour before ending the night at a catered dinner at the Satterwhite Ranch, complete with a hayride, and opportunity to see three additional houses.
Take home resources:
The seminar includes a comprehensive full color workshop manual which follows Sam's presentation and gives ample space for notes. We also provide a plan book, full color brochure, project portfolio, scale stick, and ink pen.
Day 2 (Saturday): WORKSHOP - What you'll do:
Saturday is structured to offer personalized choices. After breakfast and quick tour of our manufacturing and warehouse operations, the balance of the day gives you a huge range of optional activities, with your choice of hourly breakout sessions in three different presentation areas, live construction demonstrations, an opportunity to meet one on one with various experts like design, finance, or a Satterwhite salesman to address details of your personal project (sign up early - appointments can fill fast!). We work hard to continuously improve the seminar. Breakout sessions change, as do details of our construction exhibition. One thing that never changes - exhaustion! The most consistent comment we get is how much there is to see and do. Prepare for a great time - and great food, too!
