Techniques Employed in our log cabin kits or modular log cabins:

  1. Over-scribing and underscribing: This well established method is used and taught by the best log cabin homes builders world-wide, in log cabin kits construction.
  2. Shrink-fit saddle notches: Our saddle notches are unique in style and appearance. These notches are essentially equivalent to the best and most common notches used in the professional log homes building trade. We have found our style to fit better over time.
  3. Lateral seam between logs: shallow cove. We use a technique developed ourselves, to keep cove joints tighter over time, than traditional shallow cove style joinery.
  4. Controlled Checking: We use kerfing as a method of minimizing slump of logs in our log cabin homes over time.
