The species of wood used in your home should have the characteristics that are needed to create a sound, visually appealing structure that retains its strength, value and appearance. The standard wood offered in Hughes Building Systems’ custom log is Eastern White Pine. Our choice of wood results in reduced twisting and warping of the log, allowing for the walls of your home to settle uniformly. The logs are then naturally seasoned and dried slowly, stabilizing the moisture content to prevent future cracking and chipping. This process also helps to maximize the natural fiber strength already present in the wood.
