Piece en Piece Log construction. I have had a few enquires about this lately so I thought I would post some pictures of the Buchannan house we built last summer. Probably the oldest style of log construction in North America, There are still out posts standing that were built by the voyageurs of the Hudson Bay Company of the 18th Century. Some of these have been preserved, like the one seen here from Puget Sound. We decided to give the piece en piece a different twist though and make it our own. We construct our wall panels the same as our Norwegian Dovetail walls. This eliminates the majority of checking and cracking that is so common in "boxed heart" timber. Throw in a few details that are Common only to Davidson Homes, and you have a truly Unique, Canadian Home.

Are log homes efficient? Log building has come a long way since it was created over a millennium ago,and even more so in the last 10 years. We have always known wood in general is a warm material. Unlike fiberglass and foam insulation whose R value worsens with exteme temperatures, #loghomes have a constant r value that couples with great thermal mass values. Closed cell gaskets that work amazing under compression are the norm in the Scandinavian log home industry now to keep drafts out. Make sure your builder is using it. #pgasket #davidsonloghomes #handcrafted
