This company is for people who like the look of logs. Modulog siding is a siding product that looks like logs but requires 75 percent less wood. It incorporates a patented solid log corner and has the unique advantage of giving an authentic log look to any house. The company only uses the finest coastal Western Red Cedar trees from British Columbia, Canada. Milled at their Portland, Oregon Headquarters. Only Top Grade A trees are used. This allows for select tight knot and consistent grain and knot appearance. Their Log ends, trim, and accessories are the same standard of cedar. Their milled cedar is kiln dried to a moisture content of 16 percent and every piece is hand selected and stained for quality control. Their Modulog coastal BC Western Red Cedar fiber is unique and different from all other growth areas in the world. Due to rainforest rainfall, soil nutrients, and ground moisture, the resulting fiber tanins and oils combine to create the growth. This in turn affects the grain density, lack of sapwood, stability and overall durability. It is also resistant to rot and insects.

A log house (or log home) is structurally identical to a log cabin (a house typically made from logs that have not been milled into conventional lumber). The term log cabin is not preferred by most contemporary builders, as it generally refers to a smaller, more rustic log house such as a hunting cabin in the woods, or a summer cottage. Log construction was the most common building technique in large regions of Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Baltic states and Russia, where straight and tall coniferous trees, such as pine and spruce, were readily available. It was also widely used for vernacular buildings in Eastern Central Europe, the Alps, the Balkans and parts of Asia, where similar climatic conditions were present. In the warmer and more westerly regions of Europe, where deciduous trees were more dominant, timber framing was favoured instead.

Some of the different types of log homes can include; handcrafted, which are typically made of logs that have been peeled, but essentially unchanged from their original appearance as trees; hewn logs, logs that are hewn by an axe to an oval, hexagonal, octagonal or rectangular section; sawn logs, logs that are sawn to a standard width, but with their original heights; milled (also known as machine profiled), made with a log house moulder, made with logs that have been run through a manufacturing process which then converts them into timbers which are consistent in size and appearance.
