DID YOU KNOW - The oldest log structure in the United States is over 400 years old?

It's made from Cypress, which possesses qualities that no other wood species can compare to, and can survive extreme circumstances! Cypress has a natural oil preservative, cypresseine, which protects the wood from insects and decay.

Cypress is a very dense wood, with growth rings very close together, and much smaller air pockets in the wood itself, which allows less moisture absorption and less shrinkage.

Cypress is a great insulator, making it energy-efficient and ideal for building purposes.

The Cypress tree's great qualities are what give the tree it's durability and longevity. These same qualities are why we use cypress to build log homes!
