Log and timber homes remind us of a simpler time when craftsmanship was valued and the forest was our playground. Today, the log/timber home world is still alive and well, as new homes are being constructed and older homes are being preserved every single day. 

People continue to enjoy the craftsmanship and “outdoorsy” feel of these havens, whether it is a primary residence or a spot to get away for the weekend. One thing that is almost a standard for these homes is an awesome outdoor area to enjoy. When the outdoor area is a deck or covered porch, a solid, easy to install railing is a must-have. At Homestead Timbers, we have just the solution for you with our Rapid Log Railing system.

We have been selling Rapid Log Railing since the 1980s and its classic design has stayed the same throughout the years, making it attractive for additions/new construction and compatible with product that needs to be replaced. Our railing is made from beautiful Northern White Cedar, which we get from the northern part of Michigan and its Upper Peninsula. Northern White Cedar is a solid wood to use due to its strength, durability, and light weight. It is decay resistant and holds paint/stain extremely well after being milled, all of which is ideal for decks, fences, shingles, posts, and of course, railing material.

Aside from a simple, yet timeless, design and the quality of the material, the best part about our Rapid Log Railing is its ease of installation. All rails are drilled for tenon-ed spindles, which we stock. We have drilled corner, line, and end posts for rails to fit into. We offer standard 8’ and 10’ sections, a double top rail section, and an adjustable angled section for stairways. We also offer individual and undrilled components if you want to do the work yourself or have other uses for material. All parts are compatible and you can get full sections together in a flash, which gives you more time to enjoy your outdoor space.

Rapid Log Railing has been one of our flagship products for years and customers from all over continue to visit us for material. If you are in need of railing for your next project, stop by our brand new showroom in Marne and give our Rapid Log Railing a shot!
