Dave Carter Sr. graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1966. He’s a proud supporter and former player for the University of Tennessee Volunteers football team. Graduating with a degree in Education, his passion was always in art and his love for drafting and architecture led him into construction where he learned how to build from his father. He had always admired the design of the Appalachian style of log homes that the Smoky Mountain region is known for. An opportunity presented itself and he took the challenge of building Appalachian Log Homes in 1980.


With his son in his shadows, Dave Jr learned from the bottom and worked his way up. From cleaning after crews, to the laboring task of hand hewing timbers just like the settlers did. Dave Jr has decades of building experience and timber proficiency.   Learning the importance of relationships and loyalty, Dave Jr has helped grow Appalachian Log Homes into what is now Appalachian Log & Timber Homes, adapting to the new styles and expectations of today.


Ed Ziobro brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise in all things log and timber.  From construction to log care, Ed has over 20 years of experience in the industry.  He’s so passionate about log homes, he not only built his own home, but also built one for his in laws.  A native of New Jersey, he gladly calls East Tennessee home.  We couldn’t imagine Appalachian Log & Timber Homes without him!


Mark Titus has been with Appalachian Log & Timber homes for over 10 years.  He’s an experienced log home specialist and continues to educate himself to keep up with industry standards.  He keeps our office entertained with his light hearted attitude.  In Marks spare time, he loves to spend it outdoors biking and hiking with his family.
