Our Product

  • All logs are premium grade and air dried.
  • Large diameter white and red pines are the most commonly used logs by Backwoods Log Homes.
  • Logs are 14" to 24" 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.


Full Scribe

Full scribe log homes offer the tightest fit and best insulation value of all the hand-crafted styles. Each round of logs is scribed to fit the contours of previous round. This creates very tight seems that do not require chinking. Full scribe log construction is the gold standard for log homes, and is a great choice for a permanent home in any location.

Chink Style

Chink style log homes are a more economical alternative to full scribe log homes, and are ideal for weekend and lake cabins. Each round of logs is notched to fit over the previous round. However, unlike full scribe log homes, the lateral, or length, of the log is not scribed to fit tightly. The resulting gaps are filled with chinking. This is a very good option if it is not economically feasible for you to purchase a full scribe log home.

Piece on Piece

Piece on piece log homes melds post and beam, and log construction. Mortise and tenon joinery is used to stack log walls between the posts. Both full scribe or chink style log construction can be used on piece on piece building.
