Based on our experience, we recommend the beauty and energy efficiency of Katahdin Cedar Log Homes. Unlike pine logs often used in the Carolinas, Katahdin’s northern white cedar insulates against heat and cold better than any other type of commonly used wood. Cedar’s low moisture content protects your log home exterior from cracking, splitting, shrinkage, settling, air seepage and rot after your home is built. This long term stability allows Katahdin’s unique Energy Envelope System to meet or exceed energy efficiency requirements without sacrificing the stability of whole log wall construction.
If you’re looking for a log home that is less rustic, and more contemporary in design, we offer an incredible line of homes from Arborwall. Check our our gallery here.

What’s so special about Cedar?
Our northern white cedar protects your log home’s interior against heat and cold better than any other type of commonly used wood. Many other builders use pine logs. Traditional pine logs have 2.5 times more water content than Cedar logs. The large amount of moisture in pine can lead to a number of problems like cracking, splitting, shrinkage, setting, air seepage and rot after your home is built.
