raditional dovetail log homes

The early pioneer woodcrafters knew that homes built from well-hewn,

rectangular logs with skillfully notched dove-tailed corners were sturdy and enduring. Our Traditional dovetail log homes embody the same beauty, strength and charm as the homes of our forefathers, but offer countless design options and amenities for your active, modern lifestyle. Traditional log walls are available in 8” X 12” or 6” X 12” profiles and are joined at the corners with authentic half-dovetails. This design allows the weight of the building to pull the walls tightly together for a sturdy, weather-resistant home. Spaces between the logs are filled with double two inch bands of E.P.S. insulation and covered with flexible latex chinking, creating a strong and thermally efficient wall. An Appalachian Traditional log system is truly the perfect blend of pioneer tradition and modern technology. It’s no wonder Traditional dovetail log homes are our most popular construction style.

ov Loc Log Homes Our Dov Loc system offers the same authentic appearance as our

Traditional system for those who prefer the contemporary “log on log” style of construction. It’s our versatile log wall system which gives you a variety of log milling styles and a custom look to suit your personal tastes. Dov loc homes offer a dramatic diversity of styles.

Our Dov Loc walls are similar to Traditional log walls, with half-dovetail joints at the corners. The tops and bottoms, however, are milled with a double tongue and groove joint, locking the timbers together with a double strip of butyl tape and lag screws every two feet. This innovative design allows for a strong and tight-fitting log wall, but eliminates the need for chinking joints. Dov Loc can be milled to

your preference with or without a cosmetic chink joint, or V-grooved. Ask your Appalachian representative about Dov Loc milling options. We will be happy to assist you in selecting the finishing styles to best complement your home design.

og Siding Our log siding provides the exterior beauty of a log home, with the interior construction

and finishing options of a conventional stud-framed home. Log siding has full-width dovetail corners, making it virtually indistinguishable from solid log wall construction. Log siding is perfect for new homes, garage construction, gable ends or retrofitting an existing structure. For greater energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, log sided homes can be constructed with our exclusive Paneloc® wall building system.
