Plattsburgh, NY (PRWEB) December 28, 2007
Cedar Knoll Log Homes, a leading Adirondack log home designer and manufacturer, announces it has begun shipment of the largest log siding order in the company's 28-year history. This Swedish Cope log siding order is not only record setting because of the large volume of siding required (approximately 10,000 linear feet) for a single family dwelling, but also record setting because of the dimensions of this custom-made log siding that was given a hand-hewn finish and stained prior to shipping. The finished siding was manufactured from kiln dried 5" by 13" White Pine cants and incorporates Cedar Knoll Log Homes' unique shiplap jointing system.
Ron Marx, President of Cedar Knoll Log Homes said, "This log siding order typifies the custom manufacturing capabilities that Cedar Knoll Log Homes is capable of and willing to tackle. We were approached by McKenna Builders, Inc., a leading home builder in the Central New York Finger Lakes region, to help them develop this custom log siding to meet their client's request."
"After meeting with all parties on the design of the massive Swedish Cope profile, we developed the custom templates required and machined the special planing knives to reflect the pattern. The raw materials for the siding were so large we had to customize the preplaning process to help remove some of the excess materials before finish planing. As part of this project, we also manufactured custom designed door and window trim along with hand hewn 12 inch round uprights for both interior and exterior corners to complete this special house," Marx added.
Tom McKenna, owner of McKenna Builders said, "I am extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship that Cedar Knoll Log Homes has delivered. I knew what my customer wanted was not something any run-of-the-mill lumber yard could likely produce. After talking with Ron Marx and seeing how cooperative Cedar Knoll was in meeting our needs, I gave them the order. The final product that Cedar Knoll Log Homes delivered, on time and on budget, exceeded my expectations."
"Once the work on the estate is completed, this home will be worthy of a feature spread in any of the major log home industry publications. I know we have never produced anything like this log siding in the past, nor have I personally seen any siding of this magnitude. We are proud and honored to be a part of this project. It just goes to show that hard work and a willingness to think in terms of what we can do instead of what we can't do pays off in the long run; both for Cedar Knoll Log Homes and our customers," Marx concluded.
