A milled log home is a type of construction where logs are precisely cut, shaped, and milled to create uniform pieces. These logs are then stacked and fitted together to form the walls and structure of the home. Milled log homes provide a smoother, more modern look than traditional handcrafted log homes. However, they still retain wood’s natural beauty and warmth.
Our Milled Process
Using our Long Log Advantage technology, we can utilize full-length logs for your walls and gables. In addition, our advanced milling technology allows us to create logs up to 60 feet long and 24 inches in diameter. This means that your home will be structurally superior to other log products.
Our philosophy is to build tight. We use responsibly harvested, naturally dried, seasoned, dead-standing Lodge Pole Pine and Engelmann Spruce to do this. This minimizes or eliminates shrinkage issues experienced by other companies.
Montana Custom logs are hand-selected and graded by our TPI-trained staff for quality. We then turn them on our custom lathe to ensure they are a consistent diameter. Next, we add a groove to our full weight-bearing Swedish cope. Finally, we machine our saddle notches.
