Ward Cedar Log Homes

Quality Log Homes, Hybrid/Timber Homes, & Log Cabin Kits

Ward Cedar Log Homes is America’s first log home manufacturer. In 1923, when lumberman, Bruce Ward, invented his special interlocking milling technique, he created Ward Cedar Log Homes and the premier company in the industry was founded. 

Today, Ward builds log homes with the craftsmanship and quality that you would expect from a company with 97 years of experience. Using only premium pre-cut and graded northern white cedar logs, Ward homes are attractive, low maintenance, and energy efficient.

We create the log home you want, whether it’s a statement of quality, for entertaining friends and family with style, for holidays, or a cabin in the woods. A home shaped by your own individual tastes, preferences, building site, and of course, your budget.

Logs are 6x6 or 6x8 and are D-shaped to create a flat interior wall surface. Handpeeled and Clapbaord logs are also available.

To maximize energy efficiency, Ward engineers developed the Ward Comfort System 5. This unique, five-point log profile system provides tongue-and-groove joinery, drip edges, foam gasket barriers, external foam backer rods, and exterior caulking. Ward also uses a specially engineered interlocking butt and pass corner design to further ensure energy efficiency.

Ward also features its Hybrid log home for building in extreme climate conditions or in areas with prescriptive energy codes. With an R-value of over 30, this 2x6 framed wall construction includes 6-inch fiberglass batt insulation, 1-inch optional rigid insulation, cedar log siding with full log corners and northern white cedar interior paneling. This system looks exactly like the solid log wall homes.

Custom plans are our specialty. Ward provides free pricing and custom design service. Our trained sales professionals are there to guide you through the home design process.
