Building of log houses, one of the oldest wooden house building technologies. It was spread in CIS countries, Europe and America. The technology of building of log houses is very popular among the population, due to comparative low cost of building and speed of building. Company “Modern wooden houses” LLC constructs log houses both of as fir tree (Carpathian spruce) and pine. During the building we use logs of various diameters 160mm, 180mm, 200mm, 220mm, 240mm and lengths of 6m-12m. Logs’ kickoff, so called cups occurs in the place of assembly, because often logs have natural moisture and the time of delivery to the object may have insignificant deformation, which will affect the assembly of house. Therefore, employees of the company “Modern wooden houses” LLC kickoff cups in the process of assembly of the house. In the process of assembly logs are fastened together with oak pegs, between logs is laid between crown heating materials - natural linen. On corner joints logs are fastened to the foundation by anchor spokes.
Our ancestors after building a log house gave it time to shrink 1-2 years. Modern technology and the experience of the company “Modern wooden houses” LLC allow moving in the house immediately after building.
