A log siding home gives the appearance of a full log home at a fraction of the cost. These homes can be built faster and easier and still provide the rustic look of a cabin or house. A full log home is made from pine and cedar logs that are whole trees with the bark removed. Log siding comes in three thicknesses that provide the option you prefer. The center of the tree is removed to eliminate much of the weight and cost. Some benefits associated with using log siding for the exterior building material include. • Log siding is much less expensive than full logs. • It is lighter weight, and easier to carry and saw. • No crane is needed to hoist the heavy logs to the top. • Pieces have tongue and groove features that lock them together. • Log siding does not shrink, swell, and crack like full logs. These characteristics make log siding an ideal covering for the exterior of any cabin or home. The house pictured here simulates full logs quite well. Don’t you agree? It doesn’t matter whether the structure is large or small. The siding is installed with long screws that secure it even on high walls. Once in place, the siding adds structural integrity to all four sides. Another bonus is that homeowners with fundamental skills can install their own log home siding.
