Log Stack Siding is the use of sleepers or hand hewn timbers from 18th century colonial America to create the look of a log cabin, but with the ability to have the insulation and construction of a modern building. By working up from to end, so as to leave the ends or tails full, the timbers are split. The material is then used as horizontal siding, with the full ends coming together to form the corner of the building - just like a traditional log cabin. Due to the corner log stack, there is a small gap between each siding piece which is filled with chinking to seal the gaps between the logs.
Aged, rough hewn siding is a natural companion for a pristine mountain setting.
Cabin Log Siding Information
High character visibility includes century old ax hewing marks, original mortise pockets, nail holes, mineral stains, original cracks and splits, and evidence from previous worm and insect activity. Expect the material to have width thickness, width, and length variance within each timber and from timber to timber. The patina will range from aged natural brown to weathered grays.
The authenticity of natural aging, natural growth patterns, and worm/insect holes cannot be matched by modern machining and distressing techniques.
