Where the log walls intersect, a notch must be cut to lock the two walls together.
The technique of hand crafting and cutting the interlocking corner notches is
crucial to how the finished log home will look and perform.
The precise crafting of this notch is essential to maintaining a tight seal and
preventing gaps from occurring.
At The Log Connection, our craftsmen have years of experience crafting multiple styles of corner notches.
The most common is the Scandinavian Saddle Notch.

The Scandinavian Saddle Notch is our most popular style of log home corner notch, typically combined with the
over-scribe technique and large diameter round logs.
This corner notch system features precisely angled surfaces which achieve an excellent long term tolerance and
create an extremely effective water and air infiltration barrier.
We offer many
of the Dovetail corner notch, which is most suited to
traditional slab side log or timber style homes, and is
available in a smooth finish or textured with a traditional
look. Our craftsman enjoy the challenge and precision
workmanship required for dovetail log homes. A full scribe, non
chinked dovetail log home is extremely rare but available when
Historic log home construction commonly
incorporated a caulking material between the logs; this style
is referred to as a chinked log home.
Using today's technology, our notch style is specialized to achieve phenomenal
sealing properties while maintaining the characteristics and
appeal of a traditional chinked style log home.
