Hey Conor, if you're still looking, I'd recommend 2 folks.  Tamarack Log Homes in West Virginia is owned by Tim Bullock and his wife.  Honestly I haven't reached out to him in several years, however, I drove to WV one time to see him and see if he was the real deal.  He is, and I would call him and talk to him about any kind of dovetail build/construction if I was going to do it.  The other group for DIY folks I always recommend is the Log Home Builders Association.  They teach log home construction butt and pass style, using rebar to hold together.  LOTS of info about the class, and you can look at lhba.com.  They have a class, plans, and most recently videos.  There are also several youtube videos up of folks building using LHBA techniques.   It is a preference many folks have used (some hate it and curse LHBA, but I don't)  and there are several cabins and owners all over the USA that usually will let you come see the house.  I visited one in Texas while we lived there and was totally amazed.  Two very different folks to contact and different methods for sure, and I don't work for either.  Blessings for a great build!  John
