Traditional Dovetail style home

Traditional Dovetail

This is perhaps the most commonly seen style of log home throughout the eastern USA and Canada. Sometime it is called an Appalachian Style Log Home. We use full-length giant white pine logs. We mill our logs to 8”, 10” or 12” thick with our “state of the art” band mill but maintain the live edge of the log which was commonly used by the early pioneers. Each and every log is hand selected for the location on the building, hand scribed and notched resulting in precisely fitted dovetail corners. The space between the logs is insulated with renewable, non-toxic sheep wool and chinked inside/out with modern synthetic chinking materials. The log surface finish can be rough sawn, planed smooth or hand hewn although our most popular choice is a planed smooth interior and hand-hewn exterior.
