Once the logs are peeled we start stacking them on the building. We use a saddle cope on the corners. Each log must be individually adjusted by the amount of cope you cut out of the log.
Many people are interested how the chinking in-between the logs is put in. First Joanne fits a triangle shaped piece of foam in-between the logs. This leaves a smooth flat surface which we then apply a synthetic glue mixture that has a sand base. Once we have applied the chinking with an air caulking gun we trowel it smooth. On the outside we have wood chinking which is made from cutting a pole in quarters. Then it is scribed to fit between the logs and cut with a ban saw.
The cabins are beautiful and complemented by our spectacular scenery.
