We supply half log, full log, timber log, and accessories along with caulk, stain, and fasteners to you or your contractor DIRECT from the manufacturer. No middleman.
Our TRUE HALF-LOG SIDING is produced by actually cutting logs in half, maintaining the natural contours of the logs as opposed to machined and shaped from square timbers, called cants. This siding is actually half of the log, not simply a shaving of the log face. Our premium, hard-to-find hand-peeled style or our machine-assisted rustic-hewn style, combined with our full-log corners result in an exterior that is indistinguishable from full-log construction. When used in combination with conventional construction, the result is a traditional full-log home look at a lower price. Half-log siding is the perfect choice for remodeling projects. This siding is available in a variety of widths, from 6” to 14”.
We offer several exterior corner options for your half-log or full-log package.
Accessories can be an integral part of completing your log home project or can be used alone to provide rustic character. All pieces are available in a hand-peeled or rustic-hewn finish.
Timber log siding provides a flat, rustic, reclaimed wood look that has become more popular recently. The siding is 2” thick, making it lightweight and easy to install, and is offered in 8” and 10” widths. Made from kiln-dried pine, timber log siding is offered in rough-sawn or rustic-hewn finishes. Exterior corners can be finished with a vertical timber log, or an interlocking, dovetail corner. Timber log siding can be used on the exterior, or on the interior to provide warmth and character.
Timber log accessories can be combined with timber siding, or are a great choice on their own in providing rustic characteristics inside or outside of your home. Our complete line of accessories includes:
When the house is “framed” the interior/exterior is in place. On basic log home plans, it is cost-effective to use full log construction. When the full logs are set, both the interior and exterior walls are complete. There’s no need to sheet or insulate them. Your logs are your finished walls.
All logs are kiln-dried to minimize checking/splitting, seepage, and settlement. Red and white pine is larger, plentiful, and cost-effective. Logs are milled to specific stack heights. A rustic hewn finish to keep the natural beauty/character of the wood.
Thermal mass and R-value are different forms of energy efficiency. Logs use thermal mass to keep your home at a steady temperature. By absorbing and emitting the surrounding temperatures, thermal mass is an efficient way to control your home’s climate. Of course, not all species of wood have the same efficiency; Red and white pine are ranked very high when talking about thermal mass!
Installing Mechanicals is just a different concept with a full-log home. The log home building plans for all mechanicals while setting the logs. The electrician then runs his work through a conduit and back down under or through the floor system. Full-log homes are not necessarily more expensive. Like all homes, the cost depends on the design and materials. The use of quality materials and smart planning will give you an energy-efficient, economical home to last a lifetime.
