True North Log Corners

The strength of any building is the corner. The cornerstone, as they say, of a log home is even more important. The major problem is log home corner joinery separation. True North has resolved this problem by incorporating their patented Keylock Air Seal Corner® into every True North home!

True North applies only the most advanced corner systems and technologies into your log home. These systems include the dovetail, saddlenotch and post corners, unlike other builders who opt for the easier to produce "butt and pass" system, which is prone to separation due to a lack of interlocking capabilities. True North backs up their corner technology with a 25-Year Zero Air Infiltration Warranty.

Proven by design to be the most durable method of construction, the dovetail corner has unique water-shedding capabilities. All angles lead out of the corners so water will never remain at the joint.

The saddlenotch system creates a traditional log cabin appearance, while the incorporation of interlocking logs strengthen the corner. Available in round groove, outside "D" and double "D" logs.

Round Log Timber Trusses
& Penta-post Corner Options

True North Log Homes believes that every home should be as unique as its owner. We offer several custom interior and exterior design features to help define your home. Hand-crafted round log or square timber trusses can be integrated into most any design, to enhance the rustic log home feel.

Large irregular windows or prow-shaped fronts most commonly seen in chalets can be achieved by using True North's penta-post corner system. This revolutionary joinery system allows the interlocking log assembly to conform to irregular angles without compromising the wall integrity.

Ask your True North dealer about these and other design innovations that will enable you to set your log home apart.
