Eastern White Pine for Log Homes


Eastern White Pine
Eastern White Pine is lightweight, soft, even-textured, light in color and easily worked, making it a great choice of pine log homes. Eastern White Pine is probably the least resinous of all pines. Its remarkable durability is evidenced by the number of houses built of Eastern White Pine in New England 200 or more years ago still in existence.

Western Red Cedar for Log Homes


Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar is light, rot resistant, and strong which are excellent qualities well suited for our line of cedar log homes. It's free of pitch and resin and has a high percentage of heartwood, plus natural "grown-in" preservatives famous for making the wood resistant to insects and decay.

Northern White Cedar for Log Homes


Northern White Cedar
Northern White Cedar is also light, rot resistant, and strong making it a terrific choice of the cedar log homes available. Its light color makes it more receptive to stain. Like Western Red Cedar it too is free of pitch and resin and has a high percentage of heartwood, plus natural "grown-in" preservatives famous for making the wood resistant to insects and decay.

Bald Cypress for Log Homes


Bald Cypress
Bald Cypress is a hardwood with excellent durability making it a dependable choice of cypress log homes. Cypress, like Cedar, is naturally resistant to rot and insect infestation. Its light color contrasts Western Red Cedar's reddish brown hue. Cypress is used extensively in coastal environments. It accepts most wood finishes with good results.
