The log homes of today have little in common with the log cabins of the past due to advances in manufacturing, assembly, and energy efficiency.  Two factors you need to consider are the selection of material and how the logs are manufactured and your home constucted. 

Material Selection
At Hughes Building Systems the "difference" starts with our choice of wood species. Our standard is Eastern White Pine. We also offer Northern White Cedar and Western Red Cedar as an option. Our standard wood species features the "boxed heartwood" of the tree for the manufacturing of your log home. Our choice of logs reduces twisting and warping of your logs, resulting in uniform settling of your home's walls. Using naturally seasoned material—dried slowly—stabilizes the moisture content in the logs. This helps to prevent cracking and or checking and maximizes the natural fiber strength of the wood. Does this make a difference? Yes it does!

State of the Art Manufacturing Process
Our state of the art log mill ensures precise and uniform milling of the logs used in your home, improving the quality and appearance of the final product. Precision in our milling process translates to precision on the job site when laying your logs and installing windows and doors. Our manufacturing process helps to ensure that every home meets or exceeds all major building codes.
