Log Home Construction

Log Home Exterior

Tomahawk Log Homes exterior walls consist of 2-by 6-inch stud framed walls, a vapor barrier, 6-inch fiberglass insulation, 1-inch structural insulated sheathing and your choice of half-log or cedar siding styles. Our log home construction system meets Energy Star's standards for energy efficiency. Half-log home packages are available in Saddle-Lok™, Cross-Lok™, Verti-Lok™ and Verti-Log™ corner systems. Combinations of these are also common in many homes. All logs used are hand hewn, dip treated twice and kiln dried. For a more contemporary appearance, Beveled Edge Cedar and Wavy Edge Cedar are also available. All options come with special exterior wood stains, caulk and fasteners. For existing structures, any of our siding systems can also be used to remodel or wrap.

Log Home Interior

Another benefit of Energy-Log™ construction is the ability to select a variety of interior finishes. Options may include log rafters and collar ties, half-log or Chalet-Log™ interior log finishes, rough cut beams, knotty pine, wainscot, drywall or any combination you prefer. All log beams, collar ties, one-cut rafters and knotty pine cathedral ceilings are included as standard log home package items.
