We're in the business of instilling Confidense in people. The history of the traditional techniques we teach go back 1500 years - it's not rocket science. It's about self disipline and self determination with real rewards that empower and enrich people. Our students are thinking outside of that box that is expecting them to both work, have 2.3 children, have a 30 year mortgage and pretty much be in debt and stuck in an occupation, (as it turns out, many don't like what they do for a living) for most of their lives. We show them how to take a raw, natural, renewable resource and build a fine log home with it with little or no debt tied to it. In the process of learning up to three traditional styles of building with logs, we cause them to think of building and living debt-free and how differantly their lives would be impacted in doing so. They're encouraged to develop a three to five year plan to design and build with their own logs and also have an income offering their services to others.
We have created a way to use the latest in Communications Technology to deliver complete on-line, interactive Log Builder Training Program that will allow folks to stay and learn at home, at their own pace the traditional skills of this 1500 year old craft of building with logs!! Save $$$, don't miss any time away from work, business and family - and now the whole family can learn together too! Find out how!
The greatest source of wealth in America was in natural resources - all else produced by man is created with these natural resources. Timber and Mining. The American Economy is measured by Consumer spending on products produced with these natural resources. Owner Builders able to aquire a small tract of land and use the raw timber there or purchased locally can do so at a conciderable savings in cost and your own sweat expended in doing for yourself is not taxed. Not yet. Processed natural resources add value with each item a consumer would purchase - increasing it's cost. Self sufficiency and independance drive those inclined not to join with the hoards who blindly follow one another in their cars on roads built leading into the city to work - to pay taxes. We've heard this termed the 'Rat Race". Who cares if you make $80,000 / yr if it costs you most of that to live there?
Our own students over the last 20 years would be asked over a camp fire, how differantly would their lives be or have been for the older ones - had they not been in debt all these years? Most say they were kept from pursuing other things and worked at jobs - or a job, they didn't even like because of the burden of making monthly payments, despite seeming to never get any where.
