Meet Tommy and Gwen Mitchell, owners of a multimillion-dollar log furniture and home construction company. This couple have been marriage and business partners for 20 years, and they’re still going strong. This July, Great American Country takes you inside the ups and downs of their family business in the series LogHeads.
The Mitchells own the world’s largest handcrafted log furniture company, Rocky Top Furniture. From a hobby to a full-blown empire, the Kentucky natives have a true “loges-to-riches” story. Tommy designs and builds the furniture, while wife Gwen keeps the business running smoothly. This season, the couple and their staff create custom furniture for a lodge’s dining room, build a log cabin for a family displaced by a house fire and surprise a client with a tricked-out log cabin in the woods.
“LogHeads is a really fun show to watch,” said Steven Lerner, senior vice president of programming and development for Great American Country and its sister channels HGTV and DIY Network. “It’s got spirited characters working on cool projects in a unique industry. You can tell these are people having a blast in their jobs. And beyond that, this show is about a couple living the American dream by working hard and turning their passion into a thriving business. That makes it special.”
Tune in for the season premiere of LogHeads on Wednesday, July 16 at 9/8c on Great American Country.
