Total amount of logs needed for the 4 outside and 1 center walls.

 

 


 

List of timbers for the floor, loft, roof and porches.

 

 


 

Log corner options shown below.

 

 


 

Would love to have the dovetail corners starting with half logs on 2 sides for the strength they provide.

 

 


 

Lincoln log style overlapping joints starting with half logs on 2 sides.

 

 


 

Dado joints will block air infiltration better and be easier to cut than the dovetails.
