Log Cabin Architect Rand Soellner & Appalachian Style Log Siding Invention
“There wasn’t anything exactly like this in the market,” said Soellner, “I think it took a log cabin architect to create it.” Rand Soellner home architects invented this special log siding out of Southern Yellow Pine that is pressure-treated, including the chinking. People are amazed it looks just like 100-year old one-foot square timbers at a fraction of the cost, with no structural penalty to the building and is installed over standard frame walls. This log siding is provided prefinished in a mission-brown semi-transparent stain and the chinking boards are pre-coated with medium-grey latex chinking with grit. This is not commercially available and must be custom ordered. Log cabin architect Rand Soellner has local artizans make the material for each job. Approx. $14 per sf, + your shipping (note: you provide the shipping), subject to change without notice. Make sure your order includes extra material for wastage, which on this wall was about 15 percent, which will vary depending on the complexity of your project. (Note: Minimum order: 1,000 square feet.)
