WALDEN LOG HOMES   

 
The way a log home is supposed to look! A 'natural log' home.

The ultimate pioneer in Green Building, Walden Log Homes has been recycling logs for over thirty years. Our family-owned company uses reclaimed timber that was  hand-hewn over a century ago from virgin forests. Back then, our forefathers had the pick of the forest, and they chose the biggest, strongest trees for their homesteads.

Superior to new, hastily-grown logs, Walden's antique logs are naturally insect-resistant (one of the properties of heart wood),  and they finished settling a while back. About a century and a half ago, as a rule.

Hewn from the heartwood of Poplars, Oaks, Chestnuts, Long Leaf Pine and Hemlocks, the dense square-cut logs have a character that cannot be imitated. Authentic adz marks made by a foot adz, the long-handled axe that was originally used to cut away the bark and soft sap wood, are visible on the logs. Original mortise pockets, wooden pegs and the rare initials and 19th century date are all preserved, and reverred at Walden Log Homes. Such authentic character cannot be replicated in a factory.

Building a Walden Log Home is not only cost-effective, but as Green as you can get. Whether you are looking to build a custom antique log home to your exact plan using our extensive inventory of original hand-hewn, reclaimed timbers, or re-erect one of our salvaged log structures exactly as-found, Walden Log Homes can build your dream house from our reclaimed wood. And now your 'new' rustic home was recycled!

The owner stained the floor herself in this dramatic hexagon pattern. A vaulted ceiling gives room for impressive hand-hewn beams. Exposed posts and beams add interest to the great room.
