Honest Craftsmanship • Locally-Sourced Materials
Log End Seal — Wood Sealant provides a durable, water-repellent barrier against sun, rain, snow and ice. Resistant to mold, rot, bacteria, and will not absorb moisture. Since , Perma-Chink Log Home Chinking has proven itself on thousands of chinked and chinkless style homes to become the most widely applied log home chinking in the world. Woodsman is a high performance, elastic wood sealant for general use around your house. It can be used during construction between logs, in butt-joints, around windows, doors, woodwork, eaves, soffits, vents and expansion joints.
Cants are a secondary product used in the log construction industry. They are the product of mills that manufacture dimensional timber. Essentially, the mill forms the square timber into oval shapes, taking off the bare minimum. Similar to dimensional timber used as fence posts, this product will bow, twist and warp.
This is due to the fact that when the timbers are cut, the natural growth ring is destroyed.
Green Woodworking: Handcrafting Wood from Log to Finished Product
These products are not ideal, and may lead to maintenance and repair issues. There are several methods of log construction, some which can use either handcrafted or milled logs. The chink-less or Scandinavian full-scribe method utilizes milled or scribed logs, notched at the corners and fit together to minimize chinking.
Chinking is a filling used to fill gaps between horizontal rows of logs.
The stacked or flat-on-flat method utilizes logs that have been flattened on both the top and the bottom, then stacked with butt-and-pass corners. The tongue and groove method utilizes a milled tongue and groove connection between stacked logs to align and seal the wall from exterior elements.

The tight-pinned method utilizes stacked logs, not milled or notched, and vertically fastens them with steel pins. Each of these methods defines a distinct style for a log home or cabin; each has varying corner styles and fastening systems. Three corner styles are typically used when interlocking logs at ends. Butt and pass corners are the least stable and provide a location for rain or snow to rest on the flat extended surface, eventually causing wood decay.

Dovetail corners are tight interlocking corners that have aesthetic appeal. Other non-traditional corners styles are also available. Fastening systems will vary between manufacturers and according to the type of log used. The requirements for various types of fasteners are defined in codes and standards for wood construction.

Fasteners are important in the construction of log homes or cabins, because they align logs, manage settling, and provide resistance to lateral loads. The different types of fasteners include spikes, lag screws, through bolts, threaded log home screws, drift pins and wood dowels.
