The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

I will be using 30 foot southern yellow pine logs.
They will be around 12” at the butt and minimum 8.5” at the tip. Im not sure if i will be using butt and pass or saddle notching.
How would you go about compensating for the taper?
Im thinking either alternating butt/tip or trimming entire log to 8.5” (which would create a huge amount of waste).
Any suggestions?

When I built my cabin, I used white cedar which has a high degree of taper.  I just alternated butt to taper.  I did a steeple notch corner, but I am not sure it would work or look well with butt and pass, because of the size difference, saddle notch would work well .
