Characteristics Of Hand-Hewn Log Homes
Hand-selected logs feature peeled textures that will give your handcrafted home a one-of-a-kind design that reflects natural surroundings and passionate craftsmanship. Handcrafted homes from PrecisionCraft offer the following characteristics:
- Hardy Douglas fir with dense wood fibers and a straight grain, giving each log character and uniqueness
- Tapered logs with a larger diameter on one end than the other
- Large character posts
- Authentic hand-hewn texture
- Hand-peeled logs that display blade strokes
- Visible chinking between the log courses to seal the walls
- Custom handcrafting of each log
The time and care taken to hand-peel each log speaks to the value of handcrafted log homes. Your completed custom log home is a functional piece of art. You can maintain the hand-hewn log texture on the interior walls to elevate each room with warm, textured wood. Pairing the hand-peeled logs with your custom design creates a one-of-a-kind, sculpturesque home.
Design possibilities for your handcrafted log home are virtually limitless. Embrace different style influences, from craftsman to A-frames, and experience the seamless blend of your home with its natural surroundings. Complement the hand-hewn log texture with other materials like stone to introduce contrast and visual appeal.
