The classic version of the log-wood house – the structure with self-supporting walls, or, more simply, a wooden frame. These log homes are classic wooden frame. Of course, they are different projects appearance, methods of logging and log technical parameters, but building them on a common pattern: the same flat logs stacked on each other in a horizontal direction at the corners of their associated special vrubkami – peculiar timbered locks. And obtained self-supporting wooden walls. In the corners of a log blockhouse of the future combined with residue and without the rest – these are different methods of logging in the future depending on the trim and siding.
Cutting walls with the remainder of practice for log homes, not sheathed on the outside, cutting the walls without a trace – at the outside wall sheathing. This technology is cutting a log house tradition thousands of years, and the classic wooden frame of the whole logs have always been and will be, despite all the wealth of advanced materials and technologies, their lovers, which is now more and more. Wooden frame holds heat well at the expense of large diameter logs (22 to 35cm), of which by tradition it is folded. Traditionally in Russia to build a house used softwood – pine, spruce and larch. With conventional technology involves the use of mature forest conifers.
Straight trees are selected the same age and size. Wood ate richly and evenly saturated with resin from a very early age of the tree, the wood is saturated with pine resin only well into adulthood. At the same time predominantly saturated its outer layers. On this basis, the use of small-diameter logs is better to use fir, pine as in this case is still not saturated resin and hence less durable. On the other hand, the richness of wood resins may do a disservice, for example, bath or sauna, where the heat and high humidity so the wood begins to 'weep'.
