Log Home Construction:
The True North Difference
Log homes have been built on this continent for centuries. From
temporary cabins used by loggers and trappers to permanent homes
and cottages. Some of the world's most luxurious hotels and vacation
resorts have also used the natural beauty and ambience of logs to
distinguish themselves from their competitors.
While honoring the history and heritage of log homes,True North
Log Homes has developed a patented log home system that takes log
home construction to a whole new level with the use of materials
and joinery techniques unavailable to our forefathers. What True
North has developed is the most technologically advanced log home
in the world, one that embodies the superb craftsmanship of the past
with the comfort and low maintenance demanded in a modern home. The
following are just a few of the advantages and advanced technologies
that separates True North Log Homes from all the others:
True North Joinery Technology Is Truly Revolutionary
Within the walls of every True North log home are many innovations,
highlighted by an exclusive patented joinery system that is unmatched
in the industry. At the heart of True North's innovations, which
include 14 (soon to be 17) Canadian and U.S. patents, is the Keylock
Air Seal Corner®.
True North is the only log home manufacturer able to offer a 25-year Zero Air Infiltration Warranty. The Keylock Air Seal Corner® and
joinery system is the key advantage of a True North log home. This
technology ensures no chinking or exterior caulking will ever be
needed on a True North log home.
True North takes full advantage of the naturally occurring shrinkage
in the width and length of logs to make their homes airtight. The
introduction of strategically placed patented keylocks, butt splines,
tongue and groove systems and keysplines work with nature to actually
tighten the log structure over time.
True North has revolutionized the first post to log, interlocking
tongue and groove joinery system in log home construction. This penta
post (5-sided post) joinery allows irregular wall angles to be part
of your log home design. Turrets and prow fronts can easily become
part of your design.
Precision Log Home Construction
True North's construction of the world's
largest heavy log wall, computer-aided manufacturing plant has brought
log home building into the 21st century. True North homes are manufactured
with such precision that the home need only be erected once -- on
your building site, resulting in substantial cost savings.
The True North plant is capable of producing a 2,000-square-foot
home in less than eight hours. Each log wall is produced sequentially
using computer-generated cutting drawings. All door and window openings
are custom cut and all thru-bolt, butt spline and keylock holes are
pre-drilled. All material is finished to full measure in 6" x
8" x 12", 10" x 12" and 12" x 12" (special
order) sizes and milling is to a tolerance of 1/5,000th of an inch.
First Coat Of Stain
True North Log Homes is the first log home company
in the world to provide a factory-applied primer stain. True North
applies the first coat of stain to your logs to protect against airborne
fungus and mildew during on-site construction.
True North's combination of quality materials, advanced technology
and precision craftsmanship is what defines the True North difference.
The True North log home is truly low maintenance and worry-free.
When you choose a True North log home, you enjoy the satisfaction
of knowing you've not only built your dream home, but you've created
a lifestyle that will provide a legacy for generations to remember.
