White Cedar Log Homes
White cedar log homes offer a rustic, environment-friendly alternative to the typical tiny home. By using cedar logs to form the frame and structure of your home, you can enjoy the strength, long life, and quiet comfort offered by this method.
HOW IT'S MADE
White cedars are grown throughout the U.S. and only cut when they meet size requirements and can be sustainably harvested. Once cut, the logs are prepared for building, including cutting to length, notching for corners, pre-drilling for screws, and more.
These logs are then sent to the building site, where they are assembled to form the home. White cedar log homes are quick to assemble, reducing the amount of time your home is exposed to weather and avoiding any exposure-related damages.
Quick assembly also requires less labor and waste, keeping your home green from start to finish.
Features & Benefits
White cedar is the most popular wood used to build log cabins. This wood is a renewable resource that is actively managed and monitored to ensure forest biodiversity, allowing you to build a home that supports the environment.
Unlike many woods, white cedar produces natural preservatives that make it resistant to rot, insects, and decay. With this natural protection, your home can have a long life with reduced maintenance needs and a healthier home environment.
White cedar log homes are some of the strongest home structures available and are able to withstand hurricanes, earthquakes, and damage from falling objects, such as trees.
Log homes, specifically those built with white cedar logs, are often quieter and more energy efficient than the average home. The thickness of the walls reduces noise and energy output, saving you 15-20% on your monthly energy costs and increasing your home’s comfort.
White cedar’s thickness, also known as thermal mass, also ensures that your home stays at a comfortable temperature year round. Combined with the warmth wood offers to the touch, your home will keep the warm energy in during the winter and the heat out during the summer.
