Hewn Log Collection

Perhaps you can envision the fire crackling, the faint smell of wood smoke coming from the fireplace of the lakeside family retreat you’ve planned for years. The romance of owning an authentic full log cabin alongside a pristine lake or thrashing creek is something many hope for but never realize because of cost. Our Hewn Log Siding Collection can help reduce the cost of that family retreat by installing realistic log siding over conventional stud wall construction. In addition, you will not need to worry about settling or window and door adjustments of a full log home. Enjoy all of the benefits provided by a tongue and groove Hewn Log siding giving you full protection against wind and rain penetration. Our tongue and groove Hewn Log siding eliminates most of the heavy log screws and extra caulking that other log siding requires. All of our Hewn Log Siding comes fully sanded for better exterior finish adhesion and improved finish performance. We manufacture 6 different thicknesses and 3 width options of Hewn Log Siding. Our expert sales consultants stand ready to answer any questions and reduce the costs of building your log home.
