Milled Log Walls

Our milled log wall systems are weathertight and structurally engineered for the highest strength. The most popular profile is our “6×8” “D” log which is precision milled for a beautiful and long lasting finish.

Advantages of Tamlin’s Milled Log System

  • All logs are kiln dried to minimize shrinkage and settling of walls
  • 6×8 “D” log is the most popular
  • Other log sizes and profiles also available (such as 6×8 and 8×8 flat/flat)
  • Each log is precision cut, prenotched and drilled for “lag bolts” and “through-bolts”
  • Precut wall openings for windows and doors to reduce on-site labour
  • Logs are carefully graded and precision milled into double tongue-and-groove profiles with interlocking corners for a weathertight seal
  • Factory predrilling for electrical holes and routering for receptacles/switch boxes saves significant electical installation time
  • Lag bolt hole predrilling to eliminate labour costs on site
  • Milled “D” logs have a built-in drip edge that helps shed water away
  • Choice of select western red cedar, premium Douglas Fir or spruce and pine “cabin grade”
  • Where logs join together on longer lengths, a dove tail-joint (known for its strength) is used
  • Each log is milled in the same precise manner so you have a perfect fit every time
  • Log wall drawings and  detailed log construction manual included
  • For quick and easy log assembly, all logs are identified with labels. Lifting logs into place does not require a crane, making this system perfect for do-it-your-selfers
