Quality Materials

Log packages include materials that are stamped and graded. Our milled logs are a “cut” above the rest. They are precision milled for a proper fit, with corners and lateral joints fitting snugly together. Logs can be milled up to 32′ in length (special cuts), and logs are available in 7″, 8″, 9″, 10″, 11″, 12″, 13″, 14″, 15″, and 16″ diameters. Logs are milled from dead dry-standing or fallen Western Woods, and they have a low moisture content. Over the years, we have experienced settling of 1/2″ to 3/4″ in an 8′ log wall. Tongue & groove “D” logs are also available in several different sizes.

Our Standard appearance package contains smooth logs with no bark and hand-peeled surfaces. The Rustic/Cabin appearance log has about 20% of its surface hand-peeled. The Rustic/Cabin log appeals to those who prefer a more authentic log look.

Another option we provide is a Handcrafted log. These logs are fit and pre-stacked at the mill. Each log is scribed and cut to fit a specific location in the wall with hand tools. The logs are delivered to the site in the order they go into the home – bottom logs first. The logs are taken from the trucks and placed directly in the home by a crane. A supervisor is sent from the mill to direct the re-stacking of the logs at your site. This work is usually done in less than a week. Because of the many man hours involved, this package is more expensive than our milled log packages. Call or email to get a custom bid on your Handcrafted log home.
