Ohio Log Homes & OH Log Cabins
Mountain Creations Log Homes can provide solid cedar log home packages and cabin kits in the following Ohio log home building regions:
Log Homes in Ohio can be built throughout the Buckeye state. Ohio has three distinct topographical regions: the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains in the eastern half of the state; the Erie lakeshore, extending for nearly three-fourths of the northern boundary; and the central plains in the western half of the state. This provides for a very diverse geography of Ohio and log homes are well suited in any of these regions.
The capital of Ohio is Columbus. Ohio is a midwestern state which is known as the "Buckeye State" for its prevalence of Ohio Buckeye trees, and, as such, Ohioans are also known as "Buckeyes."
