Customer Testimonial

Dear Mr. Giles:




Since the visit we made to the Hearthstone plant in Dandridge several years ago, we have been impressed by the Hearthstone company, the products, and your people.  We built a cabin 2 years ago and we just received the log package for our Hearthstone home at the end of April.  We love them!


In particular, working with John Ricketson has been the best! He has answered our technical questions and offered sound advice when I have had frequent questions.  He has always given us timely responses and I have the utmost confidence in him. I can't tell you how happy we have been to have working with John. Our only regret is that this relationship will be coming to an end now that we don't have any other Hearthstone projects in the future.  It will definitely be one of our fondest memories of building.


You should be proud of your company and John.  He is a great representative.


Thank you and best wishes for your future success."
