Handcrafted Log & Timber

Log Non-Settling Chink Style

Probably one of the most iconic styles of log home construction, our handcrafted non-settling chink style log homes are crafted with saddle notches at the corners and the spaces between the logs are filled with chinking.

Our engineered non-settling system uses a series of lag bolts to secure, or “freeze”, the position of each wall log. This proven system has been tested and measured over the course of several years after our homes are finished, and shows no loss in the wall heights. This is a wonderful option for homeowners who want to avoid building methods that allow for settling.

Gone are the days of moss or cement stuffed in the lateral gaps between logs. Advanced formulas allow modern chinking to stretch and contract with the logs as they adjusts to seasonal changes in temperature and moisture. Chinking comes in many colors to complement your stain color choice.
