The clean, fresh scent of resin

Pine covers any cuts in its bark with resin to prevent diseases and pests from entering the wood. The clean, fresh scent of resin lingers in a house made of pine. According to old folk beliefs, it is good for both body and soul. It’s quite pleasant, that’s for sure! Pine is characteristically either rustic in its roughness, or silky smooth, depending on its finish. It is naturally a soft, reddish tone, which age and light patinate to produce slightly darker finish. A log house is splendid to look at, and inside, you are greeted by its warm, friendly ambience.

Choice of the log material

Finnish pine from local forests is the raw material of the massive logs used in Vehanen’s log houses. The forest owners and our expert partners who choose our wood material know our high quality requirements. Only the best wood material makes it to Vehanen—we’re quite strict and absolutely sure about that.

Pine or spruce can be selected as the raw material for laminated logs.
