1867 Confederation Log Homes
1867 Confederation Log and Timber Frame’s home received the 2015 Best Log Homes designation, chosen by Log Home Living’s extensive audience and featured in Log Home Living’s 2015 Best Log Homes issue and the 2016 Annual Buyers Guide.
1867 Confederation Log Homes is Canada's leading log home manufacturer, shipping homes around the world. Known for their high standards of quality, each log home is erected and checked prior to shipping.
Closed-in shell packages are marketed as 1867 Confederation Log Homes’ standard package, which includes all material to build subfloors, log walls, roofs, soffit, fascia, gable ends and interior partitions. Also included are windows and exterior doors with locks, custom blueprints and delivery.
Air tightness is achieved by a triple-seal tongue- and-groove and continuous seal in the dovetail or laplock corners. Air tightness is ensured by tightening the easily accessible thru bolts, which are located at 6-foot intervals or closer in all log walls.
Electrical requirements are taken care of by pre-drilling, as shown on plans, which results in quicker onsite assembly.
Two-inch hardwood dowels are inserted in pre-drilled holes at the sides of all openings. Windows and doors are attached to sub-jambs which are securely fastened to the hardwood dowel. This allows for a solid attachment while not interfering with log settling.
Three sizes of northern white pine to choose from (6-by-8 inch, 6-by-12 inch, 8-by-12 inch) are air dried for up to two years, reducing checking and log movement. Western red cedar is also available.
Timber frame designs are also available. Our logs are sustainable forested, interior log finish is low VOC, window and HRV systems are ENERGY STAR® compliant and floor plans optimize passive solar features. Blueprints are drawn in-house and customized as per clients’ requests. Catalog and video are available. Call for information on available dealerships or your nearest dealer.
