wraps" provide a way to cover a structural post or beam so it looks like a
log structure. The pieces are cut to fit togther tightly, typically held by screws.
·Gives you a rustic log
cabin look, while still having a modern structure underneath.
Can be used on a large
scale, covering posts, beams, doorways, trusses, etc.
·Wraps can be four-sided
(for posts), or three sided (for beams.) Or others.
·These were used on the
Westcliffe Roundwood Pavilion, covering 10" x 10" corner posts so
they look like large log posts.
·Installation is typically by holding the pieces in alignment with rachet straps, and fastening
the four pieces together with customer supplied deck or structural screws. In
addition, construction adhesive may be applied to hold the pieces together
better. Seams are usually visible and (optionally) may be filled with wood
putty after several weeks of the wood drying. Log wraps may show cracks or
"checking" common to logs intiallly and more as they dry.
·Installation needs to be promptly done
after delivery, to hold pieces firmly together in place during the on-site
drying process (natural log wood has moisture and may shrink during drying --

To determine what size log is needed to cover your post or beam, add 6" to dimension of post or beam. Example: to cover a 4"x4" post, you would need a log with a top diameter of 10" minimum. (4" + 6" = 10"). Larger than 6" poosts may take larger logs -- scale drawings are needed.
Aspen specific--the white bark look of a Aspen tree is caused by a light powder on the tree itself. If this is the desired look a coating of watered down white latex paint may be needed to reach the desired whiteness. This is not a service offered by Greenleaf but has worked for many of our customers.
Wood preparation by sanding and use of fillers and the application of finish is up to the customer. Spruce logs typically are coated with a clear polyurethane, and hand peeled aspen logs are sometimes coated with commercially available whitewash.
