Students from the SUN Area Technical Institute recently toured the manufacturing facilities of Timberhaven Log Homes located in Lewisburg, PA. Nearly two dozen students and instructors from the Carpentry and Advanced Wood Products Manufacturing classes participated in the tour.
Kevin Hoover, tech specialist at Timberhaven Log Homes, serves on the advisory board of SUN Tech’s Carpentry class. He provided the students with a personalized tour of Timberhaven’s planner mill and production shop.
Students also enjoyed a step-by-step demonstration of the company’s renowned laminating process. The tour was concluded after the students had the opportunity to inspect Timberhaven’s various log and roofing system displays.
“The students asked a lot of very good questions about our manufacturing process and overall construction methods,” Hoover said. “I was very impressed with their level of engagement and the vast array of knowledge the students exhibited. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to further educate the group.”
