• We can custom cut timbers for any size project!
  • Timbers can be milled up to 40' long and in almost any dimension.
  • Any species of wood can be obtained and milled.
  • Of course, only the heart of the timber is used for the log walls and timber frame members.  No part of the tree is wasted!
  • Log veneer is cut from the sides of the tree; bark and wood remnants are chipped and recycled for other purposes.
