This is a comprehensive book for log home owner-builders - beginners, as well as, log home professionals. Chambers shows how to make naturally-shaped, tapered, round logs and scribe-fit them one to another so that they look like they actually grew together. This manual is packed with information that is available nowhere else, including the Log Selection Rules, Chamber'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! Chamber's 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 reach for many as owner-managed building projects. 9" x 11", 272 pages 9" X 11". 272 Pages. Soft cover.
