Gastineau Log Homes offer four distinctive corner systems.
Butt and Pass
The butt and pass corner is our “standard” corner. This overlapping corner creates “spaces” between the rows for the authentic log home appearance. The log joints will align horizontally at corners.
The Pre-Notched corner is an option that is helpful when buyers choose a rounded log shapes on the interior side. The notch into the round surface makes construction faster and easier.
The Saddle Notched corner provides logs that are cut at the mill to interlock together. . The log joints will align horizontally at corners.
True Dovetailed corners are cut at the mill to interlock together, similar to some custom furniture, providing a craftsman style appearance and fit. These corners require an the use r 8” X 8” log and can be made with logs in any profile. Dovetailed corners require adjacent walls to have the log joints staggered. To do this, one wall begins with a half log while the other begins with a full log. The log joints on adjacent walls will be staggered.
