One of the wood siding products we offer is half log Cedar siding. The best part about half log siding is that it practically looks exactly like full log construction. If you're wanting the real log home look than this is your best option. Our log siding is kiln dried to be in between 6-15% moisture content.
Cedar provides the best performance in terms of insulation, weather resistance, bug resistance, and overall longevity. However, this does come at a premium price but with log siding you also need to take into account maintenance. White cedar generally will take less maintaining than white pine due to their natural properties.
