Dylan Dickenson
Head Draftsman

Dylan became the drafting department in the Spring of 2002 when the company experienced a growth surge and he held the title of youngest employee until 2015. This man is seriously on task in all endeavors, on-the-job he unwaveringly meets design challenges head on. Additionally, he mows Coventry’s expansive lawn, his systematic approach, and the chance to use a super cool mower gives him a thrill—seriously. In his personal life, he saves and spends his money on wise investments only. Naturally he became a property owner and tended his own vegetable garden. Dylan considers recreation to be a wise investment too, so little by little he purchased and fully enjoyed his motorcycle, his motor boat, his mountain bike, and his golf clubs. Many of us thought he would remain a bachelor but Dylan finally met Tori and discovered that she was the woman of his dreams so he wisely made the marital investment in June 2016. Those toys he invested in so long ago are being enjoyed now with his bride at his side. That said, we foresee more investments in their future!

Andrew Elliott

Andrew grew up! In the log home his father, the VP of Coventry, built and in and around the log home business. Coventry even has promotional material that shows the eight-year-old Andrew helping his grampa and dad build the first of the on-site Cabin Series models. When an opening in the drafting department became available he thought when the time was right that would be a good job for him. In the mean-time he apprenticed for our sister company where he practiced his “see the task through” philosophy and learned more complex carpentry skills. And then the time was right. Interestingly, the time was right for several grown-up ventures. Andrew became a homeowner believing that he should have his ducks-in-a-row before moving forward with Abby, the girl of his dreams. This young man has a lot to offer and is no doubt a dream come true for her as well. Andrew enjoys hunting and fishing with the same enthusiasm as his forefathers. As a member of the Ammonoosuc Game Club he has a goal to hit 25 out of 25 clay pigeons. He is currently shooting 21 out of 25. Everything points to this guy meeting his goals.

Pricing Dept.

Betsy Stead

Out of our growing company needs a pricing position was created. Betsy’s extensive experience in both purchasing analytics for upscale retailers and in home construction and design made her a perfect fit. The sales and drafting team consider her attention to detail an invaluable asset. A fit and avid outdoorswoman, Betsy takes full advantage of the nearby rugged White Mountain National Forest for sporting all-season excursions with her Labradors and their friends. She feels strongly about the principles of preservation and conservation so much so that she recently became a member of the Conservation Commission. To challenge her body and mind Betsy faithfully practices yoga and has made great progress teaching herself an architectural design program.

The price was right, the design and redesign process was handled with patience, the delivery was on-time and the communications phenomenal. We continue to highly recommend Coventry to anyone considering building a log home.

Frank, NH

I found Coventry Log Homes to give overwhelming advice, support, and direction in the process of my home construction. Their kit and instructions were easy to follow and the materials to construct this home were superior in quality. I had a fantastic experience building this home.


The purchased package had everything included and plenty extra. The support and service was helpful when we called them and answered questions completely. The logs fit together very well.

Lawrence and Sharon, Wyoming

I decided to build my log home myself, and not being a carpenter by trade. Following the manual and blueprints, I had my log home up and living in it in only a couple of months. How good it feels to build and live in a Coventry Log Home.
