Log homes are structurally identical to a log cabin and are made from raw, rustic logging materials that have been handcrafted or milled. They are especially popular for energy efficiency and versatility of design options to fit personal needs. Offered in 8inch to 14 inch logs, this functional and unique look also offers options of Log Siding, D-shaped, Square, Half-Log, Palisade-Style and/or Chink-Style profiles for the outside of any home.
Log homes also boast a traditional, hand-made style by utilizing complex interlocking methods for the angles and corners of your home. A few examples of this are:
1.) DOVETAIL CORNER - a handcrafted style, full-scribe fit, with hand-hewn logs.
2.) BUTT-AND-PASS CORNER - an alternated style where logs have been sawed flat, top and bottom.
3.) TOOTH EDGE CORNER - similar to a dovetail, creates a layered but nearly flush corner.
4.) OLD SADDLE NOTCH CORNER - the simple, and most traditional style, with a section notched out.
5.) MODERN SADDLE NOTCH CORNER - a still simple, put improved lock-tight method from the traditional.
