Log cabins have high thermal mass potential too since logs store heat and then they release it when the temperatures in the home drop. The heat will not transfer either, so even though temperatures may be freezing outside, the air on the inside of the cabin will stay nice and warm. This makes log cabins and homes very energy efficient. The log cabins from Trophy Amish Cabins are built using D shaped logs, also known as D-logs. This is one of the log profiles used to build log houses and cabins, and it's named for its D shape. The inside of the log is flat, making for a nice, smooth wall on the inside and then curved on the outside of the home giving you that classic, log home look.
For the corner joints of the log, they use the butt-and-pass corner style which is a traditional log home building technique. This style of corner joint will keeps the logs at the same level. Also, you will have a flatter wall inside the home and fewer places for water to get trapped on the outside of the home which is important for log home maintenance. There are also some other things you may want to be aware of such as checking, knots, pressure treating and zoning for your log house or cabin.
