Ward Continues to be Active and Influential in the World of Professional Building Construction:
Fitting your needs is our primary concern at Ward. We know a Ward Cedar Log Home is the right choice, but it has to be right for you. Once you have decided on a Ward Home, we help you discover choices for planning and pricing that conform to your needs and wishes, while offering some ideas you may not have thought of.
Whether your log home is based on a traditional farmhouse, a colonial design, a gambrel, or a Western ranch, we offer more design flexibility than you can imagine.
Ninety-five percent of Ward Cedar Log Homes are bought for year round living. From the sometimes chilling northernmost corners of the United States to the hot, humid South and the arid Southwest, Ward Cedar Log Homes are designed to withstand virtually any climate. Our homes are designed to deliver superior energy efficiency, which minimizes heating and cooling costs.
Cedar is considered one of the world's most highly prized wood species. With natural oils called thujaplicins found in its heartwood, cedar is highly resistant to insects, decay, mold and mildew, making harsh chemical treatments unnecessary.
Northern White Cedar grows in abundance in the great north woods of Maine, in the heart of which is Houlton, home to our 35-acre manufacturing facility. Our round wood procurement practices and stringent specifications allow Ward to offer a higher grade of log than most other manufacturers.
Northern White Cedar offers the best insulation value per inch, is naturally air-dried for lasting stability and strength, has reliable great looks with a natural light honey color, a fine grain and a smooth sheen, and it is easy to maintain.
