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′-40′ in length (special cuts), and Swedish Cope saddle notch cabin appearance 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.
