Choosing between a Full Log or Half Log Home
At first glance, you may not be able to tell the difference
between our full log and half log profiles. While each log is
made using the same handcrafted methods, the building system itself
has different characteristics that will help you choose what is
best for your project. Whether you choose our full-log
or our true half-log's, you'll enjoy the advantages of beautiful
kiln-dried, heart centered, hand crafted logs..
The Expedition Log Homes® package for both types of systems
includes all of the materials for the weather-tight shell.
Our package is complimented by some of the best building materials
available in the marketplace today.
Our partners include high-quality Pella™ windows and doors, Sashco Sealants, Certainteed™ shingles, FastenMaster log
fastners and AdvanTech™ flooring
just to name a few.
HALF LOG or HYBRID BUILDING SYSTEM
Combining the best construction methods available with the
rustic beauty of logs, the insulated log building method has proven
to be a popular choice among log home enthusiasts.
Movement and settling is prevented by the conventionally framed
walls. Energy efficiency is achieved through the combination
of thermal mass and insulation. Ease of construction -
particualarly plumbing, heating, electrical and cabinetry - make
this a builders' dream.
Design flexibility and an abundance of interior finishing
choices create a distinctive reflection of each homeowner's
FULL LOG BUILDING SYSTEM
For some log home enthusiasts, only the authentic solid log
building method will do.
This tradtional log home construction method for first floor
walls is combined with the advantages of the insulated log
construction method for gable end walls to create a visually
appealing, traditional full log home.
