Log Construction

« Back to Glossary Index

This type of prefabrication technique refers to construction made with horizontally positioned logs with round or squared sections, interlocked at corners by notching. Traditionally, this type of building system has been used in regions with tall coniferous trees, which are used as raw material. Because of the evolving techniques of manufacturing, logs can be entirely prepared offsite and then transported to the construction site as a ready-to-assemble kit.

A contemporary approach to this type of construction is the manufacturing of logs made of glue-laminated timber, that are produced in factories from raw wood. The final product is stronger and more durable than simple wood and can be used and installed in the same way as traditional logs
