THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA’S LOG CABIN INDUSTRY
HON. REID RIBBLE
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
MR. RIBBLE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize America’s log cabin industry as quintessential symbol of the American pioneering spirit, embodying America’s strength and ingenuity.
Log cabins, whether used for recreation and primary residences, are economically sustainable, reducing waste and employing materials that put Mother Nature’s beauty at center stage. The industry is experiencing renewed growth, exporting this American icon to nations from Germany to China.
Log cabin production directly supports thousands of jobs from builders to sales professionals, as well as the housing market, lending institutions, and many others. The people of this industry are hard-working, charitable, and deserving of recognition for their centuries of accomplishment.
