LOG CABINS WITH DOVETAIL CONNECTION
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, angle irons for the door and window cutouts are routed in and covered by the frames.
Our cabins are pre-assembled to make sure every log and connection fits into place, then disassembled and numbered before shipping or delivery.
