If you prefer to use traditional framing, ICFs, SIPs, or even straw bale construction, but still want the gorgeous log home look, then our Half Log is perfect for you. Available in several sizes and profiles our Half Log can give any building that authentic log home look. All of our Half Log is kiln dried to ensure that it is dimensionally stable, will not warp, and is as lightweight as possible. We pride ourselves in offering many of our profiles in a shiplap pattern as well. This aids in weather protection and enhances the thermal performance.
Just like in our Full Log systems, our Half Log systems have several profiles to fit your needs. Our most common profile matches our round-round log profile perfectly. This Half Log, when used in conjunction with our custom saddle notch corner system, looks identical to our full log homes. It is virtually impossible to distinguish a full log home from our Half Log homes. Besides the rounded profile, we offer a flat profile, available with or without a space for adding chinking to create that authentic log home look.
We offer several different corner systems to fit your project needs. When trying to create the traditional full log home look, our saddle notch corners are the best option. They are available in round-round, Alaskan cut, and square profiles. These corners match our full log system perfectly. Along with the saddle notch corners, we offer both round and square post style corners.
Several options are available to create the exact look you are trying to achieve. All of our Half Log can be hand peeled to give a more rustic appearance. Our corners can also be hand peeled to match the Half Log. We do all of our hand peeling the traditional way, by hand, for that one of one log home. For an even more rustic appearance, live edge corner posts are available as well. Square corners can be adzed to create a scooped finished for a very distinctive appearance.
The majority of our Half Log products are available pre-finished. We offer a variety of colors and can pre-finish any order to your exact specifications.
