Have you included knotty pine posts, beams, and trusses in your plans for a complete and rustic log home? They add strength and character to any cabin, home, workshop, or business, and incorporating them into your structure is fast, easy, and will give you a sense of accomplishment when viewing the finished project.
Every element featured in this blog that you add to your structure, be it a cabin, home or otherwise, brings more of Mother Nature indoors. Natural wood introduces a warm and cozy atmosphere that garners compliments from everyone that enters a room. Consider any or all these additions and be a happy camper inside a pine log world of your own.
Pine Post Covers Add Beauty and Strength
Pine post covers are available in a fabulous hand-hewn surface that wraps around any 4.25” square or round post. This facade presents a sturdy 9.5” outside diameter post for 8’ and 10’ ceilings. These covers hide conventional steel or engineered wood posts in a wrap-around enclosure that look like a full 9.5” solid log.
Use building codes to determine the number of knotty pine posts needed to support your cabin or home in each of the following locations:
- Ground floor
- Second floor
It’s vital to add the highest-quality pine wood to 4.25” posts to provide structural integrity throughout your log cabin or home.
Pine Log Beam Wraps Cover Metal Beams and Ductwork
Rustic home enthusiasts don’t want laminated wood or steel beams to distract from their log lifestyle. The perfect solution is to order custom-made log beam wraps. Wraps can be made to your exact specifications to cover metal air ducts and provide the full log look in most cases. These log beam wraps are priced according to the size of the item you are encasing in the log.
Stain the beams to contrast with the walls and ceilings or use a clear finish to blend them right in with the décor. Log beam wraps look just like full logs from one end to the other. They fit easily over any beam material and provide additional strength.
