I would like to dispel the myths about the Canadian felling.
Myth 1. When drying in the corner junction occurs a jamming of logs. As is well known the tree dries across the fibers and practically remains the same size in a length. There is disclosure of the seams during the shrinkage of the Canadian log home. No jamming of logs.
Myth 2. The Canadian log house needn’t for caulking after a shrinkage of a framework. Don’t do, look at the picture!.
Myth 3. A longitudinal groove of the Canadian log home can not produce a seal on the walls. Perhaps, from an aesthetic point of view, this is more beautiful. But, personally, as I see at this place in winter, the cavity saturated by steam. And the steam has no way out through the seal, as implemented in our log frames.
Myth 4. The Canadian cutting is not a notch, it's a stylized saw angle joint in “ochlop”. Let's call things by their right – the Canadian notch. The fact that the carpenters are not able to get the ax in the same place several times is not a problem of technology, but the problem of motor performers. Which, by the way, all our joggles turned into a gash.
Myth 5. The Canadian notch a priori muct be cheaper than a notch in “ochlop” as a more simplified technology reducing the quality, rather than vice versa. Hacking is always better than cutting and choping is better than trimming. This is elementary.
