We love working with wood, and we do it well. We use traditional carpentry tools such as: an ax, a chisel, and a scrapper. We make houses and churches as our ancestors did.
About Wooden Architecture
and Its Features
A log cabin is a constructive basis for most traditional wooden buildings. It exists since time immemorial and has not lost its relevance to this day.
Verge boards are carved boards used to hide the ends of rafters.

Eave beams and rafters are elements of a traditional nailless roof. Eave beams are hooked beams made from the trunk of a fur tree with roots. Rafters are beams or logs with a hollowed groove where rest the lower ends of the roofing.

A gable roof is traditional roofing of log homes. It consists of gables and rafters forming the roof slopes.

Capping the roofs are ridgepoles – beautifully crafted logs with deep grooves joined to the roofing slopes.
A clapboard roof made from wide and thick boards (with one or two grooves) laid in two layers was universally used in the old days when wood was the most affordable and inexpensive material. However, clapboard roofing is not a practical choice nowadays and is rather expensive, but it is still used for the sake of beauty and style. If made from larch-tree though, clapboard roofs can be very durable in addition to their appealing look.

Carved pillars of porches, open arcades (galleries) and balconies are important constructive, functional and aesthetic elements of a traditional wooden home or church. Pillars can have round section – made from a log, or square – from a massive beam.
