"Deep Swamp" Red Cypress and Eastern Aromatic Red Cedar Log Homes
Welcome to the growing family of log home owners. A family of unique individuals
with the same pioneering spirit that made this country great!
Log Homes is a family owned and operated business located near Sumter,
SC. The concepts for the company were formed in 1979 from a desire to produce
the ultimate log building system.
Gable re-designed its log profiles in 1996 based on 15 years of experience in
producing, building and observing the performance of different log systems.
All of the new profiles incorporate the time proven design of over lapping wood
similar to lap siding. This age old method of joining wood has some very
1. Rain water is shed away from the
exterior log joints
2. External caulking or chinking is
not required at the horizontal log joints. This eliminates the necessity
of having to continually repair thousands of linear feet of caulking or
chinking over the years in order to maintain a water tight seal.
3. The horizontal log joints remain
tight as the walls season and there are no flat spots to collect water.
"If it's your dream - why not live it?"
Gable provides "Deep Swamp" Red Cypress and
Aromatic Red Cedar precut log packages, as well as
linear foot packages. Internal butyl gaskets, Log Boss fasteners and arrow splines
at butt joints are all incorporated into the precut packages.
Cypress and Red Cedar are two of the most durable
wood species available in the US. Both are naturally insect and rot
Gable also offers log siding systems that have pre-cut dovetail and butt & pass
corners that integrate with the siding to give the appearance of a solid log
structure. These siding systems can be applied to new or existing structures.
Gable offers standard floor plans and has CAD design service for custom
or modified plans. Customers who already have plans or sketches can mail, fax,
or email them to the Gable Mill for a free quotation.
