Log Construction Manual: The Ultimate Guide to Building Handcrafted Log Homesby Robert W. Chambers
The Log Construction Manual is packed with information that is available nowhere else, including the Log Selection Rules, Chambers's brilliantly simple method for choosing which log to use next; instructions for building hip and valley log rafters and roof trusses from full-round logs; step-by-step directions for laying out the sill logs for virtually any floor plan, including hexagons, prows, and more; how to cut state-of-the-art compression-fit saddle notches and use underscribing to keep fits tight over time; and loads of practical advice on scribing and cutting long grooves and corner notches like a professional builder.
Chambers provides useful insights on organizing and financing your log home project, and has valuable experience to share on cutting costs and avoiding common pitfalls. Although handcrafted log homes are expensive to buy, they are within the reach for many as owner-managed building projects.
This is a comprehensive, detailed, how-to book for log home owner-builders-beginners as well as log home professionals who want to know the best way to build a handcrafted log home.
