We currently offer in our inventory Western Red Cedar and Yellow Cedar house logs. Sitka Spruce and Shore Pine are available upon request.
Western Red Cedar is renowned for its natural beauty and physical properties. It is also the preferred species for export to Europe and Japan. Its natural coloring in ambers, reds and browns is complemented by its uniform, fine-grained texture. Cedar is naturally durable, free from pitch and has a naturally resistant to decay, insects, and mold. It is lightweight with outstanding dimensional stability and is preferred where appearance and weather resistance are important.
Yellow Cedar, also known as "Alaska Yellow Cedar", it is truly prized for its resistance to decay and its strength. However, as it is less available than other species, it is the highest in cost. The countless positive characteristics including its pale yellow colored wood with a very distinct aromatic odor, make this amazing wood the number one choice for expert wood carvers of all sorts.
All of our houselogs are sorted for size and uniformity. We are also able to offer a wide range of options, such as peeled or unpeeled, flaired butts, character pieces, and butt ends. Custom ordering is also available. Currently we group logs into three different size categories:
10" to 12" top size
12" to 14" top size
14" plus top size
Each houselog is individually scaled and tagged for easy identification.
