Quality Materials

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 Swedish Cope saddle notch logs are available in 7″, 8″, 9″, 10″, 12″, and 14″ 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. *Additional log sizes and D-logs are also available, call or email for information.

Standard Appearance logs are smooth, milled to a uniform profile with no bark, and can include some drawknifing. Cabin/Rustic Appearance logs are milled to leave approximately 5%-25% of bark on the surface. The bark is drawknifed for a rustic appearance. Cabin/Rustic logs appeal to customers who prefer a more authentic log look.

Another option we provide is the Handcrafted log. These logs are fit and pre-stacked at the mill. Each log is hand notched and hand-hewn and sized to fit a specific location in the wall. The logs are delivered to your building 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.
