Hand­crafted Op­tion

Log Home Living - - PLAN -

1. Logs are ir­reg­u­larly shaped and vary in size and di­am­e­ter.

2. Each log is cut to con­form to the one be­neath it. (To en­sure a good fit, hand­crafters pre­assem­ble them in their log yard, then dis­man­tle them for ship­ment to the site.) 3. Some­times a lit­tle bark is left on for color vari­a­tion and you can typ­i­cally see marks from the adze and drawknives the crafts­men use. 4. To add char­ac­ter, cor­ner lengths are usu­ally not uni­form. 5. Sealant or chink­ing ad­heres the logs to each other and seals gaps to make the home weath­er­tight.
