Precut Milled Log Package
Flat-on-Flat Method w/ Butt & Pass Corner
By: Lincoln Logs International, LLC
Lincoln Logs International uses a 6”x 8” Flat on Flat milled log design that is stacked from the foundation right up to the gable peaks with excellent alignment. The logs are fastened down by nine inch “LogHog” fasteners staggered ever 16 inches. This method of log construction will produce a superior milled log wall that is very stable and energy efficient. Flat on flat log walls provide the best shear and buckling resistance available in a log home.
The logs are harvested from the heart of Southern Yellow Pine (air-dried to 19%-25%) in North Carolina and Virginia. The logs can be air-dried longer before milling if requested. Southern Yellow Pine is one of the strongest softwoods available (has higher design values that Red Oak and comparable to White Oak) with a beautiful wood grain pattern. Yellow Pine is widely available, and offers a lower price compared to other species such as Western Redcedar, Oak and Cypress. We offer two log profiles, the Single-D (flat interior wall) and the Double-D (round profiles on both interior and exterior). These logs need to be chinked on the exterior with Perma-Chink energy seal or a similar product.
The corners are a Butt & Pass design that gives the real distinctive log look we’re all familiar with. Lincoln Log’s exclusive “Weather-Lok” corner insures a snug weather tight seal. The logs will have a machined “V” grooved on top and bottom to accommodate a 1” diameter polyethylene backer rod. Two 1” x 6” wooden dowels are placed at the butt joints to prevent any twisting of the logs.
All logs will be graded to a minimum of a Log Wall 40 by Timber Product Inspection (TPI) to insure the quality and integrity of every log. See question number three below.
