The Beaver Building System
Outside Corner of Beaver Log Home ConstructionSolid full round log, double tongue and grooved, all surfaces round or angled kiln dried prior to final machining.

The Beaver Building System is the heart of a Beaver Log Home. This system creates a rigid interlocking wall that insures beauty, strength and an energy efficient home. With this system you will reduce the periodic maintenance needed with other log types. Pine is the standard tree used for all Beaver Logs and are harvested locally. Our Logs come in 7, 8, 10, and 12 inch diameters and lengths up to 12 feet. Other Log sizes and species are available depending on your needs and preferences.

Our Building Process
Inside Corner of Beaver Log Home ConstructionAt Beaver Log Homes we use the strongest type of corner in the industry, which is saddle notching the logs. This gives the walls interlocking strength and durability.

The Beaver Building also includes our unique spring loaded through-bolts. The final machining operation is the drilling of holes for installation of the through-bolts. The placement of the holes insures alignment as the logs are layered. With the walls erected, the through-bolt assemblies are installed in the pre-drilled holes to complete the walls.

On the lower end of the bolt we install a heavy compression spring to provide constant tension and eliminate the need for frequent tightening of the bolts. The Beaver Building System demonstrates quality, durability, and ease of construction.
