Building a Log Home for you and your family can be one of the most rewarding experience you will ever have. This home should be a direct reflection of who you are. So when it comes time to make important decisions about this home, you will want to have all the knowledge available to make these decisions in a way that works. One of the first selections you will make is what species of wood you will use. When you are choosing a wood species for your log home, some things to consider that will effect your decision are your budget, your geographical location, and most importantly, your taste and desires.
The Original Log Cabin Homes always strives to make the exact vision you have of your dream home become the reality. Many log homes companies will offer you one specific type of wood giving you a long list of reasons on why it’s the best wood species in which to build your home. Some of those reasons may be correct but truly saying that one species of wood is superior to another isn’t necessarily the case. There are pros and cons to all species and, while I’m at it, every manufacturer. One thing that The Original Log Cabin Homes take great pride in is that we offer a wide variety of wood species. Take it from the company who offers them all and ask an Original Log Cabin Homes representative about the options and they can help you make an educated decision on what species to use.
Cypress and Cedar can be considered more of a “Premium” wood. Both have natural qualities, not possessed by pine, that gives both of these species a special edge compared to other species. Both have a natural resistance to decay and insects, but don’t let that be the deciding factor. These species are at a slightly different price range than pine.
The Original Log Cabin Homes offers the most diverse list of wood species in the industry, offering Eastern white pine, Western Red Cedar, Northern White Cedar, Bald Cypress, Redwood, spruce, Douglas fir, and many more. These different options give you the unique look you are trying to achieve and offer the properties best to suit your building environment.
As I learn more and more about this company I now work for, I can honestly say that The Original Log Cabin Homes has the most versatile offerings available. Our staff knows the product, they know the species, and are able to help you make an informed decision. You don’t have to compromise on taste and can feel confident about the selection of species for your dream home.
