“How can we build a bet­ter wood home?” The own­ers of EverLog

TM Sys­tems asked them­selves this ques­tion af­ter wide­spread wild­fires led to the de­struc­tion of hun­dreds of Mon­tana homes in 2000. The an­swer? A fam­ily of con­crete log, sid­ing and tim­ber prod­ucts for both struc­tural and non­struc­tural ap­pli­ca­tions, repli­cat­ing the ex­act tex­ture and feel of handcrafted or milled logs and tim­bers.

To cre­ate a “log” that mim­ics the look of real wood, EverLog ’s log sid

TM ing and tim­bers are molded into a range of pro­files and cor­ner styles iden­ti­cal to those found in clas­sic log home con­struc­tion, with dove­tail notches, sad­dle notches, butt-and-pass and post cor­ners avail­able. The com­pany takes care of assem­bly of the struc­tural log shell on the client’s site, leav­ing them with a low­main­te­nance home. An­other ben­e­fit: The con­crete logs are cast to pre­cise lengths, re­duc­ing waste and time dur­ing con­struc­tion.

“Clients come to us be­cause they want the beauty of logs and tim­bers with­out the down­side,” says Ste­wart Hansen of EverLog Sys­tems. Hansen

TM says his prod­uct elim­i­nates con­cerns about warp­ing, twist­ing, wild­fires, ter­mites, log set­tling and wood main­te­nance. “Many of our clients look at their homes as a legacy, a worry-free home that will be easy for the next gen- er­a­tion to up­keep.”

All of EverLog ’s con­crete prod

TM ucts are man­u­fac­tured in the com­pany’s plant in Mis­soula, Mon­tana, then shipped all over the coun­try. The con­crete log walls do not re­quire a spe­cial foun­da­tion, and stan­dard win­dows and doors can be used. EverLogs can also

TM pro­vide posts, beams and trusses, and the con­crete can be man­u­fac­tured in a cus­tom color or one of the com­pany’s stock col­ors in­clud­ing chink­ing as an op­tion. To make the logs look as close to the real thing as pos­si­ble, the com­pany takes care to form its logs, log sid­ing and tim­bers, adding knots, growth rings and grain marks to the fin­ished prod­uct.
