Cool New Trend in Log Home Construction: Log Siding
This guest article is something to consider when planning to build your do-it-yourself log home. Log siding looks like full logs but with some side benefits mentioned here. I also have an article on building a do-it-yourself shed which could be done with the log siding. Something to think about!

Adze Siding for that Historical Appalachian Look
Another Appalachian style siding, called Adze siding, is used in the south for warm old style look. It is made with 1×12 pine, which is run in a machine to give it unfinished look. It is milled so that a chink strip can quickly be added, giving your cabin the look of the old style Appalachian cabins, or you can leave out the strip for an entirely different look. Adze half log siding is also tongue and grooved for simple and efficient construction.
Log Trim to Match
Several different styles of trim for the doors and windows are offered to match whichever style of log siding you choose. You can complete your perfect home with butt and pass corners which are available in a D-log shape or round log. Butt and Pass corners are made from full logs which give the illusion of a full log home. For a totally different style, you can finish it off with outside vertical log corners. Log siding and hybrid log home construction has made building a log home much simpler and efficient than before. So go ahead – build your ideal home today.
