Typical Log Home Assembly and Log Options

All Katahdin Log Homes are designed and manufactured to last for a lifetime.  We take no shortcuts in our log selection and grading process to ensure that the customer receives the finest materials available.  Every log is designed to be placed and interlocked to create an extremely solid, durable and beautiful log home.

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 temperatures.

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.
