At Coast Mountain Log Homes, building quality log home packages is our first priority. We start with only the finest building logs available. All logs are full length Red Cedar, and are 12"-16" in diameter. All logs are  then hand peeled using only a drawknife. Each log is then hand selected by our master builder for straightness and uniform diameter. We do not use bent logs or logs that have too much taper. Each log is then scribe fitted to the log below, ensuring a weather tight seal. Our log homes do not require chinking as we install a single foam gasket between each course of log work. All corners are joined using the "saddle" notch or the full Norwegian notch and are "over scribed" to ensure a tight fit during the seasoning process.
