KCLH begins pre-drilling logs


            The process of pre-drilling logs not only saves time, but greatly enhances the overall quality of the log home.  When Katahdin Cedar Log Homes became the first major cedar log home manufacturer to pre-drill logs in May 2003, we fully expected a more stable and weather resistant log home.  However, the results have even surpassed our high expectations.  By pre-drilling each individual log to allow for the use of lag bolts, the average erection time of a typical log wall has been nearly cut in half.  Pre-drilled homes are more weather resistant than homes built with pole barn spikes. This is because the log's tongue does not sustain any hammer damage and the logs are much more tightly held in place than those homes built with log screws.
