Log Home Construction with Reclaimed Logs

Log Home Construction  with Reclaimed Logs
By: JWhedbe

Antique logs are rich in history. At one time they were part of a log cabin home or perhaps the homestead’s tobacco barn. They have a past and a story to tell.  In a way, you could say “these walls actually do talk” and are now finding new things to say in new construction.

Antique logs are great for adding character to any new construction project. Whether you’re building a guest cottage, summer cabin or large custom timber frame home, adding antique reclaimed logs is a great choice. It not only adds to the beauty and uniqueness of your home but also adds to the value.

Reclaimed from 18th and 19th century antique log structures, each individual log is unique in color, shape and size. These logs have aged over many years giving them a rich patina for unmatched beauty and character. They’re hand-hewn logs so no two are exactly alike and their character cannot be duplicated. Reclaimed logs are typically much larger than today’s new growth logs because they were harvested from old growth forests, meaning older much larger trees.

If you’re designing a weekend cabin why not design one built to last? Old growth logs and lumber have a higher density and are structurally stronger. Reclaimed log cabins are fairly low maintenance, extremely sturdy and naturally energy efficient.
