Real Log Homes® Superior Materials for a Long-Lasting Energy-Efficient Log Home

Real Log Homes® isn't just a brand name. Our log homes incorporate only the highest quality materials and third-party components to complement our superior design and manufacturing, giving you a home of unparalleled structural integrity and comfort. From premium graded logs to Andersen® windows and Therma-Tru® doors, our commitment to using high-quality materials helps our homes maintain their natural beauty and ensures, with proper maintenance, your home will provide lasting comfort for generations.

PREMIUM GRADED LOGS - To assure its visual and structural quality, your Real Log Homes brand log package is manufactured with only premium graded logs cut from the heart of the log. Our logs are graded to Log Homes Council standards by our trained and certified staff at our licensed manufacturing facilities. An independent grader also monitors our logs for quality control. Our certificate of grading can be important when obtaining your local building permits or approvals.

CHOICE OF SPECIES - Real Log Homes packages are available in Eastern white pine or Western red cedar.

LESS CHECKING - While some of the logs used in any log home package will check, or crack, over time, logs used in your Real™ log home are manufactured to minimize stress to the wood and to reduce the amount of checking. Real™ logs are air-dried rather than kiln-dried, milled from the heart of the tree, and, as part of our InterLock™ Joinery System, cut with a check groove in place. In addition, our logs are designed wider than they are tall, which also helps to reduce the chance of checking on the exposed sides.
