If you’re planning on building a home in a time when others are leery, you are probably making the smartest decision of your life. Mortgage rates are at an historic low, and there has never been a better time to invest in your future! Continue the newsletter here.


We hope this finds you well. We just spent Valentine’s weekend in the house. It is AMAZING. My brother and family came up from Houston. We had 3 blizzards on 2 different days, 2 birthday parties for family members and a great all around time.

You MUST drive down some time with John. You need to see this place with the expanded kitchen. All of the selections were perfect. We’re beyond pleased.

Talk soon ~  D & J

MVP and Top Sales Performer

December 19, 2013

Beaver Mountain recognizes John Lanner, Sr. Design Consultant, as “Most Valuable Performer” for 2013 for his “Can Do” attitude, especially when it came to accommodating our clients’ busy schedules for meetings and adhering to deadlines for design work. It sometimes even meant switching days off and working evenings and weekends to get the job done. John had been a member of the Beaver Mountain family for over 15 years and brings extensive log, timber and cedar homes building knowledge to the design process for his clients.

Beaver Mountain also recognizes Chris Weyer, Regional Sales Consultant, as “Top Sales Performer” for 2013, the 2nd year in a row. Over 50% of Chris’ sales are from referrals, as a result of the extra effort and care that goes into each relationship with his clients and business alliances. Chris has been a member of the Beaver Mountain family since 1999 and says that he “derives a great deal of satisfaction in managing and coordinating a successful home building project.”

“Congratulations to both of you and Thank You for helping to make 2013 another successful year!”

P1040379 If you’ve visited our manufacturing offices in Deposit, NY lately, you may have noticed a few changes! Downstairs is now our Retail store, where you can buy WoodGuard and lots of other products to maintain your log home. Now that the retail store is finished and open, the outside is getting a face lift!

The porch and siding is off and the path to the door has been taken out temporarily. Our offices are still open, so don’t hesitate to come in!
