While some people may look at a post in a log home and say to themselves "well that's just a log", we see things a little differently here at Log N Iron. In fact, like you, we know that while that "log" serves as an important function within a home or structure, we also know that each log can have its own unique beauty as well. Which is why, at Log N Iron, we offer multiple combinations of different wood species, profiles, finishes, and styling to make sure that each log component lives up to its real beauty and potential. So whether it's a rafter supporting a roof, a joist bearing a floor, or a purlin tying trusses together; We'll make sure that, not only will you be getting the kind of strength and brawn that is needed for your specific application, but also the kind of character and beauty that you and your home demand. Available in multiple species of wood with variable profiles (i.e. from square to round). Custom notching to fit most any application. See our Log N Timber section below for more ideas and uses for our custom logs & timber products.

Flare Bottom Logs
Are you looking for a rustic and natural look for your log home? Flare bottom logs can really bring nature indoors with their "untouched" look. Flare bottom logs are great for character posts, beam wraps & bar or table legs. We would be happy to help source the perfect flare bottom log for your needs.
Whether you're looking to give the end of your staircase railing some extra character or you need a classic and uniform look for a wrap-around porch, Log N Iron has you covered. Our posts come in all shapes and sizes and can be customized to just about any stretch of the imagination. Furthermore, Log N Iron has the knowledge and experience to make sure you're getting the right post for the job. Check out the various styles below.
Another technique that allows for a vaulted ceiling effect is through the use of purlins. With Log N Iron purlins, you can enjoy the same open and airy feeling you get with the rafter design, the only difference is that the logs/timbers run parallel with the roof line rather than perpendicular. Consider the different options below and see which combinations best fit your plans.
At Log N Iron we understand the beauty of exposed log and timber. This especially holds true for our floor and ceiling joists because, while it might be easy to overlook a simple floor or ceiling in your home, a series of structural or decorative joists can be an integral part of your home's log or timber theme. Check out the samples below to see which styles go best with your space.
Our milled logs are cut, processed, and fitted to ensure a consistent assembly every time. Also, with a milled profile, you're getting the beauty and character that every exposed log will reveal while still maintaining a uniform style that will tie in well with most any home or decor.
Our custom, hand hewn logs can add some old world charm to your brand new home or addition. In fact, you can't get a more old fashion or authentic touch with any other profile. And unlike other manufacturers, Log N Iron delivers the consistency and fit of the milled Swedish cope, with the rustic exterior of a hand hewed log.
With a hand peeled profile, you're exposing all the natural characteristics and undisturbed beauty a log has to offer. These logs are preserved the way Mother Nature intended them. In fact, between the knots, tones, and natural taper, you're experiencing a log in its rawest and most organic form.
If you are looking for a truly old fashion look then a rough-sawn timber is the way to go. This style is so reminiscent of pioneer days you might just think you've traveled back to the gold rush era. Full of saw marks and rough edges, you'll fully appreciate the authentic look of this profile.
