When a full log doesn’t make sense.

Therma-Log and Smart Match sidings are very popular for dormers, garages,
walk out basements and other places where full log is not a logical choice. You may even choose to have therma-logs installed on a conventionally constructed home and have the look of a log home.

There are two types of corners available for Therma-Log Siding other than a
simple 45 degree joint. Full log corners and Round Corner Posts are both
optional choices.Smart Match siding can be butted to a flat trim board or to a round corner post.

The GLH Therma-Log System

The best of both worlds! Our Therma-Log System combines the beauty and energy benefits of log construction with the ease of framed construction. The Therma-Log System incorporates three inches of solid tongue and grooved log on the exterior of a 2” X 6” framed and insulated wall. The interior is then covered with your choice of optional Smart Match siding, 1” X 6”T & G Pine, drywall or other finishes. Therma-Log offers superior energy efficiency over conventionally framed homes. With full log corners, a Therma-Log home is indistinguishable in appearance from a home built with “full profile” logs.

What is included in a Therma-Log Kit?

We have designed our Therma-Log home packages to match our full log packages in degree of completeness. The Therma-Log exterior wall includes the 2” X 6” framing, sheathing, 6” fiberglass wall insulation, and 3” X 8” Oak Therma-Log siding with full log corners. The other package materials are identical to the full log kit except that the adjusters and other devices to allow for settlement are not needed. A Quality Assurance Visit is also not needed with a Therma-Log package as the home does not have to be built to allow for settlement.

What corners are included?

You have your choice of full log corners or round corner posts.

What is the price of a Therma-Log kit?

We offer the Therma-Log packages for the same price as our full log kits.
