Plattsburgh, NY (PRWEB) September 25, 2007
Cedar Knoll Log Homes, a leading log home designer and manufacturer, introduces its uniquely designed Cedar Knoll Swedish Cope Log Siding with custom shiplap joints and Swedish Cope faux (false) log corners. This log siding can be applied to any conventional home structure to create an authentic log home external appearance.
Ron Marx, president of Cedar Knoll Log Homes, said, "Anyone who's ever wanted a log home but was not sure they wanted the cost associated with building one from scratch can now get the best of both worlds! Cedar Knoll Swedish Cope Log Siding allows anyone to give a conventionally-sided house the rustic charm and appeal of a log home at a price-point comparable to conventional siding."
"We developed this new shiplap joint for Swedish Cope log siding," Marx continued, "to create a weather-tight seal between logs and virtually eliminate water seepage between the joints of conventional log siding. This special shiplap joint also allows the siding to be applied without any visible nail heads showing, which means the exterior façade looks more like an authentic log home. What we've done is create an easy and affordable means for homeowners to upgrade to log home living at a fraction of the cost."
The new Swedish Cope log siding kits are available in 8-inch White Cedar logs and both 8-inch and 10-inch Northern White Pine logs. All logs are kiln dried to enhance their stability and longevity. The Swedish Cope log siding can be mill-finished or hand hewn for a more rustic look. Kits come with precut starter logs, precut (notched) corners and an assembly manual (live technical support is available during normal business hours by calling 800-644-3564). Faux (false) Swedish Cope log corners and custom crafted window and door trim are available to meet individual home specifications.
"This new shiplap jointed Swedish Cope log siding is just one example of how Cedar Knoll Log Homes is using technology to make log home living more accessible and affordable. I encourage all log home / log cabin enthusiasts to check us out and see what we can do to help you go from dreaming about a log home to living in one," Marx concluded.
