Eco-Log Building Concepts
With steep pitched roofs, spacious lofts, and heavy-timber walls, EcoLog buildings are rustic and charming. They make ideal cottages, cabins, and camp buildings.
Our standard log buildings come with 8″ squared wall timbers and 4″ x 10″ heavy roof trusses. For lighter applications, such as seasonal use, 4″ x 8″ wall members are also available.
The Ambiance of a Log Home
Log homes exude pride of ownership. The warm traditional look and feel afforded by a natural log home is something that others will envy, as much as you will enjoy and appreciate. Log homes give a warm patina glow to any room and best of all log construction can compliment and match almost any decor that you may want to incorporate including modern and traditional designs. We have developed many Ontario log homes and all of our customers agree that a log home looks like a home should – welcoming, comforting and enduring.
Our basic building kits include the wall timbers, roof truss materials, log-chinking, hemlock boarding to cover the roof and gable ends, as well as an assembly manual with working drawings.
At your request we can also supply roofing materials, windows, doors and flooring. While we have a number of standard log building designs available, ranging from 100 square foot sheds to 3.000 square foot homes, we always enjoy working with our clients to customize a building to their specific needs.
The squared-timber wall members and simple box-joint corners make our buildings easy to erect. For example, a 24′ x 24′ log building can be erected and closed in by a three-person crew in four to five days.
If you have some previous log building experience, you may want to build an EcoLog building yourself. To get you started, we provide up-front, on-site technical assistance with all of our buildings.
Should you decide to hire a contractor, we can supply a list of those with previous EcoLog experience.
