The White Birch Log Home, is made out of white birch, which, along with Aspen - are fire resistant trees that belongs in an "ornamental category" of trees. The stark white coloring of the birch tree stands out against the natural background and reflects light back at the viewer.

eLog Homes builds you your paradise with air-dried wood that is slowly and naturally dried. There are reports that indicate kiln-dried logs become brittle, therefore harder to work with (when artificially dried). Besides never using wood made from small trees that ends up having more in-line joints when building, they also don't use wood that has soft knots. As 'Soft Knots' turn soft and shrink - then fall out as they dry and tends to leak. Additionally, the practice of using heavy woods is avoided as it is not as easy to work with as most softwoods. Denser heavy wood also can smell bad and remain moist indefinitely, creating a damp environment where molds could form. Also, using wood that is wet leads to the wood warping or twisting when drying. The preferred wood to build the homes is suggested to be 'White Pine', by the builders of eLog homes. Known for the soft pleasant scent and minimal knot flaws, this strong sturdy wood makes great log homes that can be enjoyed for generations.
