Popular log home story

A story that has been circulating in many news sources tells a tale of family living in Wells, Maine. No wonder this kind of story has gotten more popularity than perhaps it would normally have gotten. It is all because ABC series “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” has taken the family part of their show. This series has good cause as they remodel homes of families that have gone through hardships.

Doug Goodale, his wife and two daughters got this chance because Doug lost his arm while working his fishing boat’s winch. He has been working in the field one-handed, which shows his determination to go forward.

This family didn’t only get remodeling, they got completely new log home that was donated by Katahdin Cedar Log Homes. With publicity Katahdin received, I bet that donation turned out to be pure public relations investment. Although story is widely publicized, I think this article in Boston Globe was most descriptive.
