Smooth finish log siding is a favorite for log cabins and homes in the country and in the suburbs. There is another option that seems more natural and homey – hand peeled or hand hewn logs.
Our hand-peeled log siding is available in both Cedar and Pine. Either wood is perfect for cabins, cottages, and other structures. They transform a skeletal framework structure into a rustic and relaxing place to live or work.
Hand-peeled log siding works on exterior walls, interior walls, and for corner systems. If you want an all-around homey look and feel, you can’t go wrong with these artistically made logs. Use them for some or all walls inside your house and enjoy their aesthetic and tranquil benefits.
Although some people use clapboard or shipboard siding on their exterior walls, the trend is fading into the past. Wood is in the “in” thing now, more so than stone, brick, concrete, steel, or vinyl imitation siding. Pine log siding is sustainable, which is a plus for those of you who are “green” minded. The trees are grown on carefully planned tree farms in the north and northeast states.
Why Our Hand-Peeled Log Siding Looks Authentic
For one thing they are real wood logs, and are authentic trees from the forest. The bark is removed, and the logs are fashioned to look like they were hewn with an axe or other hand tools. By using them, you’ll think you’ve taken a trip to the past in the ‘way-back’ machine. During the millwork process, the technicians will hand inspect each and every piece for the highest quality craftsmanship possible, as shown here.
Every step is taken to ensure these siding logs conform to our company’s and the industry’s highest standards of wood quality and workmanship. We take no shortcuts in producing logs that are what you expect for your cabin, cottage, or home. They are made in convenient lengths, widths, and thicknesses to meet your preferences.
This hand-peeled log siding requires less maintenance than full logs and other log cabin siding makers. You will enjoy these accompanying benefits with our products:
- No face nailing, and fast installation
- No caulking in between joints
- No waste, easy to handle
- No warped materials to worry about.
- Little to no cracking or splitting
- Stain and clear finish are easily applied
Feast your eyes on all these creative ways to use hand peeled logs in your cabin.
