Grenville Log Homes manufactures solid wall log
kits from Northern White Cedar. Cedar is our wood of choice for
logs due to it's superior R-value, insect and decay resistance,
and low shrinkage. Due to the durability of White Cedar and our
exacting design we offer a limited 100-year structural warranty
on our building logs. Our homes range from the affordable to the
We have been producing log homes since
1983. Grenville Log Homes also manufactures all the custom cedar
accessories used in our packages. The manufacture of specialty
kiln-dried wood products began in 1978. Grenville Log Homes experienced
staff includes a Professional Engineer and a Canadian Lumberman's
Association Grader ensuring our design and product are of the
highest quality. Our homes are designed to our customer's requirements
and to the Ontario Building Code. Our customer determines the
package content. We then produce the package to the drawing specifications.
Our engineered sealing and slider systems are designed to neutralize
the effects of log shrinkage and compaction, maintain air tightness
and minimize maintenance. Our design excellence was confirmed
by air leakage tests by CMHC on our six-year-old show home. The
pressurization test rated it as the highest performing home in
the study. Grenville Log Homes is also the only solid log wall
manufacturer approved under Quebec's Energy Conservation Regulations.
Even though our systems are state of the art we strive to improve
them as new technologies become available.
Round log sizes available are 6", 7", 8"and 10"
in a rustic texture. In 2003 we introduced our new 8" T&G
smooth finished log. We use a mortise & tenon butt & pass
corner or a saddle notch full corner with the round kits. Smooth
square log kits with dovetail corners are available in 6x8 and
8x8. New in 2002 was a 6x6 T&G square log with full, mortise
& tenon butt & pass and dovetail corners. Our winter cut,
air-dried, center turned cedar logs minimize checking, log movement
and shrinkage. Construction of non-log sections vary from conventional
stick built to open beam T&G floors and timberframe roof systems.
Log surface textures range from rustic to smooth. The finishes
provided minimize maintenance, protect from the elements and keep
your log home beautiful for generations to come.

Solid wood products do not give off the harmful vapors that so
many of today's modern materials or engineered wood composites
do. People's sensitivities to these chemicals have been magnified
with building codes demanding more airtight homes. Natural wood
helps minimize your exposure. It is also aesthetically and economically
Grenville Log Homes is concerned with our environment. We have
planted 1,250,000 cedar seedlings with help from Ontario's Ministry
of Natural Resources to assist future generations. All the wood
entering our manufacturing facility is made into a useable product.
The manufacturing techniques we use actually reduce the amount
of energy and wood consumed in building a home. Our building system
provides an efficient home to heat or cool.
