"Colorado Log Home, There is a thing as a chinkless log home. Very few have the technology and or the skill to do it. So you are about 95% correct. What about the other 5%?"

Good Morning Sunshine, You realize that we are both in the dream business,right. Log homes of all types are built for people who have dreams. I truly  admire your beautiful work and in today's world we need more craftsmen. Log homes needed to address energy issues and minimize waste. Green is not just a word It's a Philosophy we share.

The next time we come to Clarksville we'll look you up. Love ya, Jim and Pam

Ray, You should be more careful with your information. When I guarantee folks that Katahdin Cedar Log Homes will match pine quotes I have the support of a company that is well established in the industry. Go to usaloghomes.com and do your research. Thank you, Jim and Pam

Hi Raymond,

Thanks for your message. We are going to need to seal the house this year. We use Sikkens. Also, we may need your help with some finishing on the inside. Let's keep in touch.

Thanks.
