Log Profile Styles

For our log cabin kit, the log size choices were 8", 10" and 12" diameter. Here were the profile styles which our log home provider offered. (You would select based upon your personal preference):
  • Full round log

  • D-style log (whereby it's round on the exterior of the home and flat on the interior)

  • Half-log

Dependent upon the log style selected, the joinery styles that were available from our provider were double tongue & groove and swedish cope. Other log home companies can offer butt & pass, interlocking corner and post & beam method.

We selected a full round log - double tongue & groove. We felt this style log was an authentic throw back to the log era and had a warm look.
