Log Wall System
Discover the Innovation In a True North Log Home
Within in the walls of every True North Log
Home are many innovations that set us apart.
Years of diligent research have resulted in an exclusive patented
joinery system, unmatched
in the industry. And our in-house design team and computer aided
keep it affordable.
Our technology capitalizes on the fact that all logs will shrink
and settle over time. True North uses that natural log shrinkage
that occurs to its advantage, which ultimately makes the log assemblies
tighter. The introduction of strategically placed patented keylocks,
butt splines, and postlocks work with nature to actually tighten
the structure over time.
The strength of any building is in the corner. That's why our
patented Keylock Air Seal Corner® has revolutionized the log
home industry. The absence of nails, screws or lag bolts in the
joinery of a True North Log Home is the key advantage of our product.
All gaskets and caulking are internal, so chinking or exterior
caulking will never be needed. Our patented Postlock Corner system
is a first in log home construction expanding log home design options
to include any angle you can imagine.
Our logs are milled out of Western Red Cedar or Eastern White
Pine in full measure 6", 8", or 10" widths (12" on special order).
All logs measure twelve inches in height, have a double tongue
and groove and are milled to a tolerance of 1/5000th of an inch.
Our patented Tongue & Groove System allows for U.V. resistant
joinery, gaskets and caulking to be integrated for airtight construction.
Thru-bolts are inserted, and the log walls are torqued down and
spring loaded with a 1000-pound spring, compressing the sealants
to form a watertight triple seal
We take great pride in our innovative spirit, which is reflected
in our 14 exclusive Canadian and U.S. patents. Our 25-year "Zero" Air
Infiltration Warranty is unrivaled in the industry and reflects
the confidence we have in our log home system. This warranty comes
with every True North factory stained (another industry first)
