Our location in the interior of British Columbia, Canada provides a selection of home building logs
unsurpassed worldwide. Only premium quality logs are hand selected from trees growing at high elevations.
These trees experience slower growth rates, resulting in a higher structural value due to tighter annual growth rings.
In addition to strength, each log is hand selected based on straightness of grain and consistency of size.
Douglas Fir is a very strong wood with a rich reddish heartwood. Generally tight growth rings, straight grain, medium heavy with good resistance to mildew and fungus.
Due to its high strength, Fir is a perfect choice for both wall logs and beams and joists.
Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar has a reddish to dull brown heartwood. It is very resistant to decay, and features generally straight grains with uniform texture. Other advantages are low shrinkage and light weight. However cedar is moderately soft, and provides low strength when used as beams.
Cedar can be used for most components in post and beam homes if the logs are oversized large enough. Also, cedar is very popular for use as character posts.
