Log Home Profiles & Corner Styles

 
   Every log is precision-sawn to an exact specification to ensure a tight fit and proper log alignment. This precision fit, combined with our full or insulated log wall assembly systems, ensures against air and moisture infiltration.

    Corner construction helps prevent separation and air infiltration in full log homes. It's less of a structural factor in insulated log walls, but certainly an important design element. Certain log shapes and corners are "married." For example, a round log and a square log have a certain style of meeting at the corner, dictating certain corner styles that are efficient and practical. The following profiles should get your wheels turning, and our price list has additional information on the log sizes and combinations available.
