Cor­ner Styles

Log Home Living - - PLAN -

How your logs in­ter­sect at the cor­ners is one of the most defin­ing fea­tures of your home.

Dove­tail. This style is used with square or rec­tan­gu­lar logs. The cor­ner is cut in a fan-shaped wedge and in­ter­locks with per­pen­dic­u­lar logs.

Cor­ner post. A post is found at each cor­ner into which grooves are cut to hold log ends. Looks sim­i­lar to post-and-beam con­struc­tion.

Sad­dle-notch. A notch on the bot­tom of the log strad­dles the top of the log com­ing from the per­pen­dic­u­lar wall. Both logs ex­tend past the cor­ner.

Butt-and-pass. One log stops where it meets an in­ter­sect­ing log, and the other log ex­tends past the cor­ner.
