Utah – Tucked up in the hills above a reservoir in Central Utah stands a home that fits the environment, yet stands out among its peers. You may find yourself getting lost in the many National Forests on your way to this remote getaway. This is one of many desirable features encompassing this project. The reservoir is nestled among the mountains with vacation homes scattered across the nearby hills. The majority of the home appears to be made of stacked large timbers. These timbers run the lengths of nearly every wall, accompanied with stonework on certain walls. The timbers are tucked together with small, subtle joints. It would be a surprise to any visitor that these, in fact, aren’t Real Wood timbers. Instead, these are Better Than Logs Hand Hewn Concrete Log Siding having No Flange (HH12NF). The boards come pre-stained and ready to assemble. This home bears Better Than Logs ‘Light Brown’ standard color. Around each window and door is Better Than Logs trim made to compliment the siding (CTR4). All of the trim is done with this smooth complimenting trim with the exception of the entry door and the corner trim (CTR4 for entry, CTR6 & CTR8 for corner trim). (Above) HH12NF with CTR4 in Light Brown and color matched sealant all provide by Better Than Logs This homeowner chose vinyl ship lap style pieces for the undersides of the eaves and vinyl to shake shingle style pieces for some of the gable ends. These pieces are unaffiliated with Better Than Logs. The entry was done primarily in rock with Better Than Logs trim framing the entryway, providing a subtle and nice transition from rock to the doorway. The weather resistance and structural integrity associated with the product left the homeowners thrilled with their finalized home. It was a pleasure to work with these homeowners.
