A full scribe log home is a traditional log style home where the logs are stacked together horizontally to form the walls. Each log has a hand-cut groove cut into its underside so it can be fit and secured to the log below. Full scribe log homes offer amazing energy-efficient thermal characteristics while the physical mass can withstand anything Mother Nature can throw at it.
There are no real limitations when it comes to building a full scribe log home. We have built log homes ranging in size from 800 square feet to well over 10,000 square feet. We will help to ensure that your new house is designed in a fashion that can be built efficiently as well as effectively.
Depending on the location of your home, we may also recommend certain logs for the construction. If you are located in a very damp environment or one that is known for wood-boring insects, we would recommend western red cedar logs, for example.
When full scribe log homes are gasketed properly and hand-fit together with “over-scribed” notches, they are considered to be very energy efficient.
