EverLogs are insulated structural handcrafted concrete logs used on everything from log houses and log cabins to luxury log homes. Typically used as a wall system, EverLogs provide superior performance and appearance.
Worry Free EverLogs are our original product line. EverLogs are patented, structural concrete logs used in a variety of applications but most frequently as a load bearing exterior wall system. EverLogs can be found on rustic cabins to luxury log homes across the country. Concrete EverLogs offer the exact character, texture, and warm appeal of quality handcrafted wood logs. EverLogs also eliminate the structural instability, costly maintenance, and susceptibility to fire, mold, insects, and other problems commonly associated with wood log construction. Log profiles include hand-hewn, round, square, barn wood, recycled timber and others. Corner styles include dovetail, square, butt and pass, posted, and round. Custom profiles and colors are also available.

Questions about EverLogs?
1. What do EverLogs do?
Patented concrete EverLogs solve the traditional issues associated with log wood construction. Specifically, our concrete log products eliminate the structural instability, costly maintenance, and susceptibility to fire, mold, insects, and other problems commonly associated with wood log construction.
Please see “Features and Benefits” for more details.
2. What are EverLogs made of?
EverLogs are made of concrete. The term “cement” is often used to describe our products. While not technically incorrect, cement is only one of the ingredients in concrete. Cement is used in combination with other products to create concrete.
3. What does an EverLog package cost?
Our EverLog wall package price is comparable to quality handcrafted wood logs.
Package prices generally range between $75 – $85 per square foot of floor space. Price will vary based on factors like: size of the home; wall heights; opening (doors and windows) sizes; design features of the home (gables, dormers, etc); unique design features, location, and the like.
See our “Side by Side Comparison” of owning a concrete EverLog home versus a wood log home.
4. What is included in an EverLog wall package? Do you build the complete wall?
EverLog Systems is a material supplier. We provide the wall system (EverLogs) and exterior components (ie EverLog Timbers, where applicable) only. With our EverLog package we do provide shipping, erection, finishing, and chinking of our structural concrete logs only.

We are not General Contractors and do not provide or build the foundation, floors, roof, doors, windows, interior finish, electrical, plumbing or the like.
5. What is the insulation value (R-Value) of EverLogs?
EverLogs will perform around an R-19 value. However, more important than R-Values and what really matters to homeowners is “Air Tightness.” Air tightness (infiltration heat loss) is how the structure performs in the real world (i.e. after it has been built and is being lived in.)
The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) has conducted a Blower Door Test which measures the air tightness (infiltration heat loss) of our structures. This test concluded that our structures (when properly constructed) are six (6) times as air tight as framed structures and seven (7) times are air tight as a comparable wood log homes. This is critical to a properly insulated home and translates to unparalleled and substantial energy efficiency and savings.

6. What is your service area?
We offer our concrete log products throughout the entire United States and International Markets.
7. What do EverLogs weigh?
EverLogs weigh about 100 lbs. per lineal foot. Because we include installation in our wall package price you never have to worry about picking one up!
8. Are your logs textured on the inside?
Typically we design and produce our interior log wall with a flat finish. Architects, designers, builders, homeowners constantly tell us they prefer (or at least want the flexibility) for something other than a full log interior finish. Providing a flat interior surface allows for the flexibility to finish the interior walls with timber frame, post and beam, stone/rock, log accent, sheet rock, or other finishes.
We can texture the interior surface when required.
9. How are door and window openings handled?
Our door and window openings are engineered directly into the wall system and are precise to the manufactures specifications. No need for on-site modifications.
10. How do you run plumbing and electrical against your walls?
Our interior walls are typically furred or framed out using 2×2’s, 2×4’s, or 2×6’s on edge. Spacing between the furring or framing allows for room to run electrical and plumbing. This space also allows for additional insulation to be added.
11. What EverLog colors are available?
Concrete EverLogs are available in just about any natural wood color. See our Photo Gallery section for concrete log home colors.
12. How long does it take to get the concrete log package?
Once plans have been completed and signed off our delivery cycle (production, transportation, and installation) is typically 60 to 90 days. This time can vary based on time of year, demand, and other factors so please check with your Project Manager for details.
