About Full-Scribe/Handcrafted Log Homes
Let the log walls bring the world of nature back into your life.
Every log home we build is custom designed to fit the home owner's wants and needs.
- All logs are premium grade and air dried.
- Large diameter white and red pines are the most commonly used logs.
- Logs are 14" to 20" mean diameter (as specified by the client).
- Logs are left with natural taper and no milled logs are involved in any part of the log shell.
- All logs used are full length with no butt joints.
- All logs arrive at the log yard with bark on and are peeled and shaped using hand tools only (see picture directly below).
- Logs are scribed, cut out by chainsaws and finally chiseled (see pictures directly below).
- All notches are under scribed to ensure a tight fit over time.
- Log shells are handcrafted at our log yard in Wisconsin, then disassembled and shipped to your home site where they are re-erected.
- Re-erection of the log shell at your home site will take approximately 2 to 4 days (add an additional day per 1500 square feet).
- We will ship log shells nationwide.
