Full Scribe Log Construction. This type of log house construction requires the most skill and is also the most labor-intensive method of log home building. To produce a full-scribed log home, they scribe and hand cut each log to match the contours of the log below. The log home builder then has a double row of rubber gasket, along with a strip of wool insulation is hidden inside the log joinery to create a seamless, weather-tight fit. Full Scribe Log Construction. Log home builders, Timber Wolf Handcrafted Log Homes’ scribing and notching techniques are designed to work with the characteristics of the fresh, unseasoned logs to produce the highest level of log joinery possible.
Chink Style Log House Construction. Chink style log house construction is produced by only notching the corner intersections of each log. The horizontal joints of the logs are then sealed with synthetic chinking building material to create a weatherproof structure. Timber Wolf Handcrafted Log Home Builders offer the option of kiln drying the logs for chink style homes to help reduce the amount of log shrinkage as well as the possibility of chinking failure that can also be associated with using fresh logs. Full Timber Frame Construction. Full timber frame construction is produced when the complete structure is built using large square timbers that are then connected using traditional frame joinery throughout.
