SIZE Matters

  • December 17, 2015

SIZE does matter when it comes to the logs you choose to build your new log home.

Full-size Logs Mean Greater Value

True North offers only full dimensional logs to build log homes. This means, for example, the 8″ x 12″ log actually measures 8″ x 12″, as opposed to the 7 1/4″ x 11 1/4″ logs used by others in the industry. True North’s use of full-size logs translates into greater insulative value. The bottom line is that the larger the logs, the more thermal mass, which equals more energy efficiency!

A wide variety of log shapes, log profiles and corner styles are offered by True North. The choices cover the entire spectrum of North American log dwellings and design choices, from square to round shapes, from dovetail to saddlenotch corners and from smooth to rough faces.
