Much has been written about which wood species is best for log home construction. In this article I will draw on fifteen years experience to explain the pros and cons of some of the common wood species used commercially for log cabin construction.
Just like in any industry, networking on your own is cheaper than paying someone to do it – or paying for advertising. But, if you simply don’t have enough contacts to stay up-to-date with the newest construction projects, you will need some help. Lead services can give them to you.
Find out whether your chosen solicitors have had experience with your sort of project. Have they represented all parties involved in a hotel or shopping construction project, or only in much smaller residential builds?
When you walked onto that job site and asked that question. You were right in the heat of it. You were where right where the rubber meets the road. You saw reality travelling at a frightening speed. But don’t worry. It will all be new issues tomorrow, but to-day, we look after to-day, to-day no one knows what tomorrow’s issues will be.
Of course, it is important that you consider the design that you want for your home before the construction. This is usually important right from the start since you would also want to live in a home that is designed according to your tastes.
Western Red Cedar (WRC) is the final and in my opinion the best choice for log home Construction. Quality WRC logs have low to moderate taper and low moisture content. WRC logs will shrink the least of all species of wood during the seasoning process. WRC is almost always straight grained and offers high natural insect and decay resistance. WRC is moderately strong and thus ideal for log wall construction. WRC is also the only species that grows with the “butt flares” that are becoming increasing popular in log homes. The flares offer the customer a way of making their home unique and give it a more rustic and “hand-crafted” look that differentiates it from the cookie-cutter style of log homes found in many areas.
The next time you are putting together an estimate for a concrete project, and are looking at saving money on construction costs, remember to consider all of the factors involved. Do not base your expected costs savings on just the cost of cement. Your project will end up costing much more in the end.
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:6). For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13).
