Our logs come from Wasatch Timber Products in Heber City, Utah. The arid conditions contributes to their reputation for having the driest house-logs in the industry. Most of their logs come from dead standing timbers, or they are air-dried for up to five years to ensure a low moisture content. When a log is truly dry, there is a much lower chance of unexpected cracking and twisting.
Additionally, log homes that are built using dead standing timbers have less settling than that of kiln dried, or a green log home. Many of our customers report having little or no settling years after their home has been built.
Our Swedish Cope log with the standard appearance is milled to a uniform profile. This style of log is ideal for those who desire a true log home, without the rustic features of the “cabin grade” listed below This style utilizes the saddle notch corner system. These logs are grade stamped. Sizes available: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, and 14-inch diameters.
This is our most popular profile. The majority of our customers prefer the more rustic characteristics found in the “cabin grade” appearance. These logs are intentionally milled to leave some bark on the surface. The bark is then draw-knifed off, giving the log a more rustic appearance. These logs are grade stamped. Sizes available: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, and 16-inch diameters.
The “Draw-knifed appearance” occurs when the entire visible portion of the log is draw-knifed. This is a popular choice for those who want the handcrafted look in a milled log. Available in standard and cabin style listed on the opposite page. These logs are grade stamped. Sizes available: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, and 16-inch diameters.
Half Log Siding
Half log siding is cut from Swedish cope logs. The logs are split in half lengthwise. Half log siding looks exactly like a full log home from the outside when utilizing the saddle notched corners. These logs are grade stamped. Sizes available: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, and 16-inch diameters.
