Kuhns Bros. Log Homes was the leader in the log home industry for almost 30 years. The Kuhns Bros. Log Homes staff was the best in the industry. Their dedication to quality, customer service and customer satisfaction set them apart and took Kuhns Bros. Log Homes to the top of its industry.
In the early and mid 2000s production and staffing was ramped up to meet the overwhelming demand for Kuhns Bros. premium log homes. In 2007 the housing market bubble burst. Kuhns Bros., like many other housing suppliers, couldn’t contract its operations quickly enough to an appropriate size that was conducive to the lowest national housing sales activity since the Great Depression. Despite all efforts to plan for and adjust to the housing market downturn, Kuhns Bros. announced that they would be closing the doors on all operations effective March 28, 2013. This came as a surprise to many, and most surprised were the employees and sales network of Kuhns Bros. Log Homes.
Not willing to see the tradition of excellence and the years of experience fall to the wayside, several long time employees of Kuhns Bros. Log Homes joined together to lay the foundation for a new leader in the log home industry. While Timberhaven retained the key employees and an established sales network, Timberhaven purchased most of the physical assets, such as manufacturing equipment and tooling, from the bank's secured assets and at subsequent auctions. Pulling talent, skills and experience from all departments of Kuhns Bros. Log Homes, Timberhaven Log Homes was born. Unlike most new companies, Timberhaven was able to start right where Kuhns Bros. left off, after all the employees were the same employees that built and made Kuhns Bros. the leader it became.
Timberhaven Log Homes
- has an average employee experience of 22 years in the log home industry
- employs the key people that were integral in the success and quality of Kuhns Bros. Log Homes (no other log home manufacturing company can claim to carry on the tradition of Kuhns Bros. Log Homes because no other company has the employees that made Kuhns Bros. Log Homes the standard in the log home industry)
- an established sales network across the country that is already familiar with the product line
- a dedication and desire to improve upon the cornerstones of what Kuhns Bros. Log Homes was once recognized for . . . “Integrity, Innovation, Quality, Value and Service”
We have witnessed the closing of a great company and now the birth of what is destined to be a leader in the log home industry.
Kuhns Bros. has sold and auctioned off their assets, including their corporate owned sales models. Two former competitors of Kuhns Bros. individually purchased the assets at the Mebane, NC and Concordia, MO locations. The sales were limited to the assets associated with the former Kuhns Bros. model home properties only, not the Kuhns Bros. Log Homes, Inc. entity itself. The tradition, knowledge, talent and dedication to excellence belong to the employees of Timberhaven Log Homes, the team that made Kuhns Bros. what it was.
