    Default Traditional Finnish Log Construction

    In Finnish but no words needed as the workmanship speaks for itself. Dated yes, over time yes but a great video.

    Looks like a lot of work, but probably no more than regular stick built. Just wonderin about air leakage when the logs shrink. Looks solid and snug.

    I'm pretty sure the Norwegians chose a different method that should provide for less air leakage; they used the scribe method to create 501 (shrink to fit) joints. I could dig up some pictures but its probably pretty findable. I was surprised to see those square notches in the video.
