Custom Profiles

The profile of a log describes the shape the log will be planed into. At New Century Log Homes we feel that you deserve as many options as you would have in a conventional log and we do everything we can to make that happen. Here is a sampling of what we offer you as it relates to your profile selection:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Species of Wood

OK. Wood is wood, right? Well, that depends on what you are wanting out of your finished product. Ask a framing contractor if he would rather build a home out of northern whitewoods (engleman spruce, lodgepole pine, northern white pine) or yellow pine. The northern whitewoods grow in brutal climates in the northern US states and into Canada where the growing season is short. This makes for a much more dense wood and that is the key.

At New Century Log Homes all we use are northern whitewoods. Again, speaking from hands-on experience, it makes a huge difference. When you combine the quality of the wood, the stringent requirements of the laminating process, and our unwavering commitment to quality, the finished product you will have is exceptional!

We also have access to some of the finest select western red cedar and northern white cedar and can combine these premium species upon request. You could even put the cedar on just one side!
