What We Do



The Estemerwalt Experience // For 136 years and through five generations, the Propst family has been manufacturing the finest in wood products and setting the standard for excellence in log homes. We are a family run log home company; we pride ourselves on having unequaled personal service, friendly staff, and precision craftsmanship.

We can’t wait for the opportunity to discuss your plans and ideas for your new home. Our sales representatives and in-house design team will work with you closely to produce a home that reflects your lifestyle and is the realizations of your dreams.

Estemer-who? // We are often asked where the name Estemerwalt came from. In the mid-1920's the patriarch Peter Propst purchased the land and lake upon which our production facility and log home office are located. This land was purchased solely for recreation and it wasn’t until many years later that the mill moved from Archbald, Pa. to its Honesdale location. In 1929, the dam was in need of repair. When the dam was rebuilt, Peter decided to rename the lake after his three children, Esther, Emery, and Walter, and Lake Estemerwalt was born. When we started to manufacture log homes in the 1980s we changed the name from Propst Lumber to Estemerwalt Log Homes to emphasize our new direction.

Our People // Estemerwalt Log Homes and her employees are proud to be good and active citizens within our town of Honesdale, Pennsylvania. This community pride extends to every facet of our business, from manufacturing up through sales. We have never had anything but complete satisfaction from our past customers, a claim not many log home companies can make. We take a great deal of pride in our positive reputation, and we work to protect it with each of our clients. No matter what the scope or size of your project, we are there for you every step of the way.

What sets us apart from other log home companies? In addition to our knowledgeable personnel, friendly service and vast product line, we have a full service sawmill.

This translates into a log home package that is among the most complete in the industry and a greater value for our customers than can be found from any other log home company.
