Stricter insulation regulations
To improve the U-values of a log house to meet stricter building regulations it became necessary to increase the
thickness of the logs, but a thicker log is more prone to split, crack or twist causing drafts and thermal leaking
points. Although a laminated log is less prone to splitting and cracking the glue used in laminating the log acts
as a moisture barrier preventing the wood breathing which can cause rot damage to the inside of the log.
It is possible to construct with a smaller log and insulate and panel the inside of a log house but this still
exposes the logs the bearing structure of the house to harmful weathering and because the external walls are
exposed to different moisture and temperature conditions than the internal partition walls this can cause uneven
settling of the log structure.
FOUND A SOLUTION - THE PATENTED ERLUND LOG WALL SYSTEM.
