selo log homes

Originating in Europe, one of the oldest and most rustic forms of log homes is known as round log ‘full scribe.’

A chinkless method of construction that uses wool or other soft materials to insulate between logs that fit together like puzzle pieces.

The techniques used to build these homes are thousands of years old, but combining this ancient craftsmanship with modern cutting and shaping tools enables a far more economical build.

These logs are naturally-shaped and smoothly-peeled before being custom-fitted to one another. Saddle-notch corners help retain a tight fit between the logs as the home settles after construction.

The tree of choice is the white pine. That’s because it’s renewable, sustainable, and  grows easily all over Bulgaria The end result is a home durable enough to stand for centuries, brimming with handcrafted charm and character.
