PostSubject: What is a Log Building System?   Fri Dec 16, 2016 5:03 pm

In addition to its superior good looks, a log building system works a little differently than conventional construction.Most housesí weight is supported vertically, but a log homeís structural support comes horizontally, with the load of the house and its components resting almost entirely on its perimeter log walls. Itís critical that they be built to precision. This is known as the joinery system.

The load-bearing surfaces that touch are known as the horizontal surfaces. These surfaces form the top and bottom of the log profile, or its shape as viewed from the end. The sides of logs are known as its visible surfaces and define the look of the logs when stacked.
