Be advised that anytime we custom cut lumber from a fresh cut log, the resulting wood will be “green” which is woodworker lingo for Wet.  It takes about 6 months or a dry montana summer to dry 1″ of wood thickness.  If you need dry wood for an upcoming project it is best to choose from our existing dry inventory.  Sometimes the right piece is worth the wait though, and that is when it makes sense to custom cut your own logs, or one of our unique logs.

Despite some companies, Claims to the contrary, timber framing and log building is most often done with green, or partially dried timber.  One exception is beams cut from dead standing trees, or salvaged timbers.  Even Kiln dried timbers are often only partially dried.  Most people just are not willing to wait 3-6 years for timbers to air dry before starting their project. Kiln drying thick timbers is cost prohibitive, and as mentioned above is usually only responsible for partially drying timbers.  At worst kilning a large timber can case harden it and create all kinds of stress in the timber.
