HEAVY TIMBER

Oasis Log Home cabins are built using heavy timbers. We build our cabins to look much of the same way log cabins were built 100 years ago with large timbers for rafters and loft joists, pine planked ceilings and full log walls and gable walls. This method brings a true rustic and "solid" feel to the cabin that other packages don't achieve with lesser materials.
