Based on the photo, at least, these are amazingly good-looking...

"EverLogs™ provide a long-lasting alternative to wood logs for construction of homes and commercial buildings. Made of reinforced, insulated concrete, the building system matches the character and texture of wood logs while providing resistance to fire, insects, and decay. In additional to having high thermal mass, each "log" contains two inches (five centimeters) of insulation. Assembly by EverLog Systems ensures an exacting fit, further reducing heating and cooling costs compared to those of wood log homes. Log packages include erection costs. Can be manufactured to specification. Available in a variety of textures and natural wood colors."

Are real-wood-look logs made of concrete a product you would use? When do you think concrete logs would be appropriate or inappropriate to use?
