And with the added structural stability of laminated logs you can be sure that your log home will last for years to come. When using laminated logs you also get the security and comfort of knowing we milled our logs to YOUR specifications, according to your log home plans.

Many of us wish for that living room that
seems to expand into the distance, but
that comes at a price. The more an
area expands, so must the support beneath it.
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is
manufactured by gluing together a number of layers of veneer. Smaller pieces allow for smaller trees to be used, but still maintain the integrity of traditionally milled logs. Defects in trees are removed and only healthy, strong pieces are used in the manufacturing process of our log homes.
Offering more load-carrying capacity and spanning ability are reasons that LVL's are been used more and more each day in the log home design process. Resistance to shrinking, twisting and warping also compliment these LVL's.
So design that dream log home of yours that has a 500 square foot living room, we can support you.
