What makes a real log house?

 

domy z bali - VivosNot every wood house is a log house. The real one is made of solid, or glued logs, round or rectangular, varying in diameter. Depending on the technology, elements of the load-bearing walls could be seen from the outside as protruding logs, from which all the walls are made. Wooden walls can be joined with walls made of other materials, such as brick. You won’t find any insulation(mineral wool or foamed polystyrene) in a wall of a primary residence made of logs due to the fact that there is no need of it (more details in Do you need to insulate a log home).

Does a log house require thermal insulation?

Everything depends on the kind of house, and logs used. If you choose logs of 16 to 20 cm in diameter for building a cabin, there is no need for additional insulation. However, if you would like to use it during the whole year, come mushroom picking in the autumn, or ice fishing in the winter, we suggest choosing logs of 20-24 cm in diameter. If you heat your cabin, such wall thickness will keep the heat inside during long, autumn or winter nights, and you won’t need any additional insulation.
