Log Building materials
Category 2 – Log Building Material
The “log build” materials usually consist of the logs and assembly hardware. The types, sizes and uses of logs vary greatly, from just the log walls to a total log structure (roof, floors and all). The items actually included in a particular package depend upon the client’s choices and budget. Conventional framing is utilized for the rest of the structure, finishing with log decorations (trusses, rafters, joists, etc.). We find this to be the most cost effective and easiest to build.
