Log Homes in Highlights Kids Magazine

I’m one of those who can watch the Science channel for hours. One of their shows, “How it’s Made” is one of my favorites. I’ve always been interested in such things, even as a young boy. My canister of Lincoln Logs was one of my most used toys. With that in mind, I was intrigued to read that Estemerwalt Log Homes had an article featured in Highlights High Five Magazine.  And no, I didn’t learn this from my subscription.  🙂

(From Press Release) In the June issue of the esteemed children’s magazine Highlights High Five, in a special feature entitled “Building Log Houses”.  The publication, which is written for preschoolers, aims to help stimulate children’s social and emotional growth, their ability to reason and to think creatively, their physical well-being and their acquisition of language skills.

“We are a family company,” says Kurt Propst, owner of Estemerwalt Log Homes. “It’s exciting for us to be included in this magazine, and to be able to be a part of teaching children the log home building process.”  With nearly 130 years in business, Estemerwalt is a fifth-generation family owned company in Honesdale, PA. Highlights, also of Honesdale, visited the Estemerwalt facility as background for this story. The three-page spread provides a fun tutorial on the construction of log homes. “It was fascinating to visit the Estemerwalt facility and learn how the logs are prepared. Kids have always loved to build toy log homes, so seeing how real log houses are made will really resonate with them,” says Kelley Cunningham, Art Director for Highlights High Five.

Highlights magazines are distributed to over one million subscribers; their motto “Fun with a Purpose” is demonstrated throughout each Highlights magazine and in an expanding family of products. Estemerwalt Log Homes welcomes kids of all ages (even the grown up kind) who are interested in learning how to build a log home to visit their facility.
