Wood And Timber

Durability log (and price) directly depends on the type of wood. Dear larch lasts about twice as long as relatively inexpensive pine. At the same time, larch, which has a greater density, better conductor of heat. In order to provide the same teplosberezheniya as log house out of pine logs with diameter 24cm diameter logs of larch should be 28cm. Sometimes the lower crowns of felled larch, and more – made of pine. Erection of wooden frame requires slowness in the future arrangement and decoration, as after assembly 'under roof' must stand for a year or more.

During this time, dry timber and the house settles. Who wants to build a house from log cabins to know that the walls of log homes as wood shrinkage, mainly during the first year after manufacture at home, give a draft of which depends on the initial moisture content of logs, ranging 1/20-1/130 height Wall log home. Only after the precipitation at home you can start re-konopatke (caulking, install windows and doors, make trimmings. But 'game worth the candle stands': in fact, it turns out the house for ages. One of the most important steps in building a log home is chopped konopatka walls.

Insulation is placed between the logs once during construction. Commonly used moss, hemp, felt, hemp, jute and other fibrous materials. However, the peculiarity of chopped walls is that they give considerable shrinkage, which leads to decompression of the walls to reduce their insulating properties. It turns out that without having to work with sutures without konopatki (seal gaps) can not do. Konopatku can be performed in two ways: 'a set' and 'to stretch'. Konopatka 'to set' is that of a fibrous material make long strands that are twisted in the shaft desired length, which rammed into the gap. Konopatka 'to stretch' is made of individual strands that are laid fiber across logs (dangling ends of the fibers are selected, rolled in a roller and hammered into the groove). At used as a sealant felt should take care to protect it from moths. As a rule, the final konopatka and walls done in a year and a half after the completion of construction of the house. At upholstery home clapboard siding, or (this is done, of course, after the final shrinkage) under the lining layer of insulation is recommended to lay (URSA, ISOVER, ROCKWOOL, etc.). In this case, in a wooden house to live all year round. Such log house will be warm and durable. The tree has almost ideal characteristics for building. In a wooden house cool in hot weather and warm in the winter cold. In addition, this home is durable, relatively easy to install and environmentally friendly.
