Energy Efficient- "R-25" possibilities
Also available is our optional insulation package
that enhances the energy efficiency of any Katahdin log home.
Included are tongue and grooved cedar interior walls and 1 inch
Styrofoam sheeting, sandwiched between the interior and exterior
walls. A bead of caulk is run on the outside edge of each
log tongue, which guarantees a tight seal from both cold and hot
In addition to insulation qualities resulting
from "R" factor, consideration should be given to THERMAL MASS,
which is the ability of a substance to capture and re-radiate
heat. Wood excels over other building materials in this category.
Northern White Cedar has BOTH the highest R factor and the
GREATEST thermal mass of all woods used in log home construction.
We offer a variety of log facing styles in white
cedar to satisfy any taste or home design. A limited selection
of pine is also offered.
