LOG CABINS WITH DOVETAIL CONNECTIONS
We offer this log cabin style from single room cabins (14’x 16’ up to 18’x 20’), to cabins with loft and porch and an L-Shape design.
All our cabins are hand crafted and milled from the full spruce log. Floor plans and door and window placements can be customized to individual needs. The logs are milled to 4”x8+ ½” then planed down to 3+7/8” x 8” with tongue & groove. All cabin log corners are dovetailed. Each log is bolted down with special log screws for a tight fit. To ensure structural stiffness, 2 x4 studs are installed for the door and window cutouts.
Our cabins are pre-assembled to make sure every log and connection fits into place, then disassembled and numbered before shipping or delivery.

In the fall of 2014, BC Log Cabins supplied a pre-manufactured cabin to the Kitimat Snowmobile and Hiker's Club to be used as a warming hut and emergency shelter on Robinson Ridge a frequently accessed but remote snowmobiling paradise. The cabin is a dove-tailed 16 x 20 feet with a 16x8 foot covered deck and a 10x16 foot loft and outfitted with wood heat, solar-powered lighting and propane cook facilities. This cabin has been featured in several newspapers and facebook posts and was a special feature in the Winter 2015 issue of Mountain Sledder Magazine.
