New Log Home Leads to New Life for Wounded Marine

Timberhaven Log Homes helped provide this home for a wounded U.S. Marine this fall.

Dozens of non-profit agencies throughout the country have joined forces to provide donations and operation support to build “smart homes” for America’s most severely wounded veterans and their families.

This fall these efforts lead to a customized “smart” Timberhaven log home for Cpl. J.B. Kerns of Virginia. The purpose of this new custom home is to help increase J.B.’s self-reliance and ease the burdens of care for his families and caregivers. Suppliers from across the country, including Timberhaven Log Homes of Lewisburg, PA, combined efforts to provide materials for this special project.
After being wounded in Afghanistan, Cpl. Kerns spent a year recovering and rehabilitating at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesa, Maryland. The triple amputee was proudly serving the US Marines when he was critically wounded.

“It is an absolute honor to support the efforts made by these non-profit organizations.” says Joe Folker, principal at Timberhaven Log Homes, “We are sincerely grateful for Cpl. Kerns’ sacrifices and could not be more proud to be included in the housing solutions offered to wounded veterans and their families. It is our hope that J.B. thoroughly enjoys residing in his new Timberhaven log home and that he finds refuge in the tranquility of the space.”
