More about Fireside Log Homes:

Having been in business for 23 years, Fireside Log Homes has shipped over 2,500 homes and commercial structures throughout the United States, Central America and Asia. Fireside began operations in February of 1984 with a deep commitment to produce the highest quality log homes and home materials available at competitive prices. What makes Fireside different? It is the personal attention you will receive and the patented treating process of our logs called Process 2000. Fireside’s deepest commitment is to building a lasting relationship with you and your family.

Here are some of the things that make Fireside the best choice when it comes to investing in your log home:

Unique, Patented, Log Treating Process Entitled “Process 2000” Process 2000 is a pressure injected wood treatment system that thoroughly penetrates the wood, not just on the surface. In 1992 Fireside introduced Process 2000, a new technology to stabilize logs. Process 2000 uses an environmentally safe stabilizing agent that greatly reduces shrinkage, and therefore reduces settling to approximately ¼ inch in an eight-foot wall. It also minimizes checking and twisting. The process also eliminates the need for screw jacks or thru-bolt systems. In addition, Fireside infuses a safe biocide that helps repel insects, mold, mildew and fungi, thus these major concerns of prospective log homeowners are effectively dealt with through our Process 2000.

Double Dovetail Splines Our unique “Oak” Double Dovetail Spline seals the mortised corners and butt joints. This spline fits tightly into the mortises preventing the logs from separating and resists any wall movement or air infiltration. The joint actually tightens over time.

Positive Drip Lip This feature is very important to your home. It guides water away from your logs. Little details like this make a Fireside log home superior.

Pre-Cut and Pre-Drilled Logs Fireside’s homes are fully pre-cut and pre-drilled which helps eliminate the need for special tools and allows the logs to settle straight so you have no need for caulking between logs. The wall systems are pre-drilled for electrical chases eliminating the need for exposed chases and we use 3/8” zinc plated lag screws instead of spikes or oly-bolts for strength.

Staged Deliveries Fireside holds shipment of your logs until your sub-floor is built, then we only deliver what you need to get started, so you don’t have to worry about finding a place to store the entire log package at once.

Technical Assistance Fireside provides on-site technical assistance, upon request, and a detailed construction manual that guides you through your log home construction.

Turn-Key Construction Fireside has its own construction company called Fireside Home Builders, which allows Fireside to help you with your project from start to finish whether it is “dry-in” or “turn-key”. Fireside Home Builders applies experienced craftsmanship to every project and each of our Dealers and Builders have completed training in the unique aspects of our log products enabling them to provide the quality necessary to be part of the Fireside team.

In-house Registered Architect and Design Staff It is Fireside’s desire to help you design a home that will fit your dream, your lifestyle, and your budget. Our in-house AIA (American Institute of Architects) registered Architect (licensed in Georgia, Florida, and North Carolina) and our design staff can take your ideas and/or notes (sketches) and complete a custom log home plan.
