Log homes are part of the American tradition and have always been admired. But there are problems with log homes. They are difficult to wire and plumb. They shift and settle, and they are expensive. Because of these problems, only the well heeled or the aesthetically obsessed are able to achieve their dream of owning a log home. This leaves hundreds of thousands of American families yearning for a less expensive way to own a log home.
It was within this context that Ron Berge and his son, Steve, began experimenting with ways to achieve an authentic log exterior that could be applied with the ease of ordinary wood siding.
