The traditional way of building log homes was to lay hand carved pine trunks one on top of the other. Nowadays, we can ensure perfect mating of the logs and assure thermal insulation due to the double tongue and groove joint connections milled under computer control within the factory. This methodology results in an extremely strong structure and produces a hemetically sealed wall structure resulting in minimal heat losses. The beams are prevented from moving by the use of wooden dowels and a cellulose-based insulation material is fitted between each beam to dissapate humidity and produce a naturally breathing structure. Using this construction methodology will produce a building that will have a lifespan of several hundred years. The floor and roof structures are similar to those used for conventional buildings.
