WALL INSULATING KIT: Add 10% for the wall insulating kit including 2×4 studs, metal stud brackets plus 3/4″ wall cover boards for interior or exterior application. When insulating on the exterior the foundation must be larger

INTERIOR              EXTERIOR        Insulating exterior - by combining these elements - mineral wall insulation, tongue and groove boards, metal brackets, and wooden components - the structure achieves both efficient insulation and a visually pleasing appearance. Do it yourself building kits. EZ Log Structures.

Energy efficiency:  Our solid wood walls add an additional R 4.4 and have virtually no heat or cold transfer, increasing the overall thermal and comfort benefits

Tip: Mineral wool  insulation is recommended for log construction. It’s impervious to moisture with a higher R-value per inch than fiberglass, reduces noise levels & is environmentally friendly

Insulating the roof: Apply locally supplied materials to add rafters over the tongue & groove roof boards. The build up depth is determined by the required R-value in the ceiling to meet local building codes. High density spray foam provides maximum benefits, highest R-value for thickness & is water proof. These added rafters also increase the roof load capacity

OPTION A: Upgrade wood windows to triple glazed / Low E / Argon filled glass

  • USD regular price $ 375.00

OPTION B: Upgrade wood windows to our exclusive maintenance free white PVC/Shutter windows with triple glazed / Low E / Argon filled glass plus exterior rolling shutters that are controlled from the interior. These unique windows provide added comfort and security. They improve the overall energy efficiency by keeping the heat out during the summer and the cold out in the winter. They also reduce outside noise levels and provide complete darkness for daytime sleepers. (See our Videos page)
