Designed for Easy Living

For a low-maintenance-design imperative, just look up. Proper roof design can extend the life of your logs. Excessive moisture and UV rays are a log wall’s enemy and by designing your home to combat them for you will make your ongoing maintenance much easier. Again, climate conditions play a huge role, but no matter if you’re protecting your walls from sun or snow, designing eaves that are at least two to four feet deep (you may want to go as deep as eight feet in some regions) will help keep the elements from direct contact with your exterior logs.

An added bonus? You’ll have a charming porch to extend your living area outdoors.
