The construction of a log house begins with the choice of the most suitable wood. It should be understood that regardless of wood material, subject to its proper installation and subsequent maintenance, the house may stand several dozen, or even hundreds of years. But, if you violate the technology of the construction of a wooden house, or, simply abandon it and not take care of it for a certain period of time, then even the most durable material will not be able to maintain the structure from natural destruction.
First of all, it is necessary to prepare a thorough and maximum detailed design project with all the necessary technical details. The most common options for erecting wooden structures continue to remain: logs at home, designs based on a gallected and casket logs.
Houses made of allocated logs have several undeniable advantages:
– The walls have an aesthetic appearance, they differ in evenness, therefore, involve a minimum coating for wood not only from the outside, but also inside the room;
– All logs are prepared exclusively in production, which allows you to make a perfectly accurate fitting, and this will allow the logs to each other as tightly as possible, excluding the probability of passing atmospheric effects;
– No additional improvement is required, this can significantly reduce the construction work and reduce financial investments.
Decoration and choice of natural wood during the construction of log houses.
In a practical plane, the construction of a wooden house invariably involves the use of pine or spruce. Such a choice is associated with a fairly even trunk, lack of hollows, a small number of branches, which makes it possible to simply build walls. Recently, the popularity of natural cedar and larch has been growing. It is allowed to use as a building material and aspen, beech, oak, alder and linden. The duration and quality of operation of a wooden structure depends not only on a correctly selected natural tree. The quality of the source material also plays a significant role, which involves the influence of several factors – the place and time of the workpiece of materials, the methods of drying and processing. But the most important parameter, nevertheless, is the density of the source material.
