THE LOGHEADS STORY
The Original Founders of Rocky Top Log Furniture and Co-Stars of the Popular TV Series LogHeads, Tommy
and Gwen Mitchell proudly annouce their latest and greatest venture – LogHeads Home Center! We are THE
source for all your log furniture, log railing and rustic decor needs.
Tommy & Gwen Mitchell Nearly 25 years ago in a small garage on nearby Lake Herrington in Central Kentucky, our rustic dream began. With a couple of hand tools and a vision, our philosophy from day one has always been to build the best available wood products and provide excellent customer service. This became our way of life.
As we grew to become one of the largest manufacturers of Log Furniture in the U.S., we were approached by HGTV Extreme Makeover. They were interested in Tommy designing custom furniture for a few of their episodes and we were thrilled they chose us and so honored to have helped out families in need.
As we fast forward, we were then approached by producers of Media Meld Studios to entertain the idea of having our very own TV show! It was then that LogHeads was born! We were part of the prime time lineup on the DIY and GAC networks for two years. We worked day and night filming and running our business – what an amazing experience!
Continuing forward, in 2015 we were approached by an Investment Company that was interested in partnering with us. Always wanting to take our company to the next level and wanting the best for our employees, we were interested in hearing more about this opportunity. After months of meetings and discussions about the benefits to our company and all our loyal employees …we sold our interest and moved onto our next venture of building log homes. Our only tie to RockyTop Furniture was the lease of our buildings to the new owners.
Approximately 2 1/2 years later, on July 27, 2018, a fire struck the buildings which we were still leasing to the new owners. I will let you search the web to read the continuing story of the fire at Rocky Top Log Furniture.
When Tommy and I returned to our facility, we BOTH knew we had to chose FAITH over FEAR and it was then that LOGHEADS HOME CENTER became a reality that literally rose from the ashes. To our loyal customers and to our potential clients, we thank each of you for the outpouring of support and endorsement of this opportunity to return to the furniture business and do what we DO BEST!
We want everyone to know that we at LogHeads Home Center will continue to be the kind of company that you had come to know and love. We will continue to make premiere log furniture and railing with out taking any shortcuts.
So this is our story. Many have inquired if we have ties with Rocky Top Log Furniture and so, we wanted to issue this announcement to clarify that we do not. We are asking you to continue to trust and pray for us as we pick up where we left off nearly three years ago – making awesome rustic log furniture. The LogHeads story continues …
