New Mexico Log Home Project

The northwestern quadrant of New Mexico is dominated by the Colorado Plateau, characterized by unique volcanic formations, dry grasslands and shrub-lands, open pinyon-juniper woodland, and mountain forests. The Chihuahuan Desert, which is the largest in North America, extends through the south. This beautiful landscape is going to be the destination for the log home we’re currently building up at the log yard.

Let’s talk about the mighty Douglas-fir

This locally grown timber is one of the strongest available woods. Good for structural elements such as floor and roof beams.

Douglas-fir is a species primarily found in British Columbia and along the west coast and actually crosses into Alberta in only a few places, such as passes like the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Crowsnest Pass. The tree has a thick burly bark, making it fairly fire tolerant.
