Effective Practices and Methods for Handcrafted Log Home ConstructionEffective Practices & Methods for Handcrafted Log Home Construction

This document describes methods, practices, materials, and techniques for building handcrafted log homes that are made from logs that largely retain their individual and natural shapes. Construction methods include: walls constructed of horizontally-laid logs, with interlocking overlapping notched corners, and with full-scribe-fit long grooves.

"Effective" practices and methods are defined as having proven themselves over time for large numbers of experienced and skilled log home builders. In preparing this publication, the International Log Builders Association (ILBA) has relied upon the experience of the hundreds of ILBA Members, who are log home builders, designers, and engineers. The Effective Practices & Methods (EP&M) provides reliable advice to help you make informed decisions.
