Home > Students > Current Events > Building with Logs: Fall 2009

PROJECT - 16' X 16' Log Piece-en-Piece building. Scribe Layout joinery is used for the log infill walls. Square Rule Layout is used for the log Post & Beam mortise and tenon framework. An additional 8' X 8' Saddle Notched log block work building is made. Scribe layout and joinery provide the generic corners for the Piece-en-Piece wall system. The log Top Plates employed Mitred-Lap corner joinery. A Gable roof system with Kingposts support a log Ridge Beam, with Mortise and Tenon Joinery.
