A Family With Dedication And Innovative Spirit
Ron Wrightman made his start in the log home industry in 1979,
founding his first successful log home company, which is still
in operation today. Ron's son, Rob, managed the original plant
while acquiring his carpenter's papers. After the sale of the initial
company, Rob worked with the new owners, teaching them how to operate
the plant and then spent the following year building homes on their
behalf. Rob then moved on to attain his real estate license and
after a highly successful five years of selling cottage properties,
approached his father Ron with a plan to re-enter the log home
In 1986 the father and son team co-founded True North Log Homes.
After ten years, Rob assumed control of the company when his father
As C.E.O., Rob is busy taking True North Log Homes from a family-run
business to a reputable international company. He oversees a proficient
management team that takes responsibility for the day-to-day operations
of the company. Over the past 20 years, True North has grown from
a small group of dedicated staff members to an employee group of
close to 50 people, who share the Wrightmans' passion for the True
North quality. True North's relentless quest for improvement continues
today, with the launch of a new product that will further enhance
the performance of the True North technology. The patent-pending,
"Thermo Groove™ Six-Seal System" is another industry
first and an example of the kind of research and creativity that
keeps True North at the forefront among log home buyers.
At the heart of True North technology is the patented Keylock
Air Seal Corner®, which has revolutionized log home construction.
This joinery system is what distinguishes a True North log home
from every other. The absence of nails, screws or lag bolts in
the True North joinery system is the trademark of this superior
construction method. True North is the only log home company willing
to offer a 25-year warranty against air infiltration -- a testimony
to the confidence that the Wrightmans have in their log home system.
