LOG HOUSES:

Log house or Log building is a structure built with horizontal logs interlocked at the corners by notching. Logs may be round, squared or hewn to other shapes, either handcrafted or milled.
The term "log cabin" generally refers to a smaller, more rustic log house, such as a hunting
cabin in the woods, that may or may not have electricity or plumbing.

Log construction was the most common building technique in large regions of Russia, Sweden,
Finland, Norway and The Baltic States ,
where straight and tall coniferous trees, such as
pine and spruce, are readily available. It was also widely used for vernacular buildings in
Eastern Central Europe, the Alps, the Balkans and parts of Asia, where similar climatic
conditions prevail. In warmer and more westerly regions of Europe, where deciduous
trees predominate, timber framing was favoured instead.


The logs in log houses have a varying degree of moisture content, all logs have moisture when freshly cut. In the case of handcrafted logs moisture will naturally leave the timber, drying it out until it stabilizes with its climate. This drying-out causes movement and shrinking of the log's diameter. As logs and timbers dry, the differential shrinkage (radial versus tangential) causes small cracks (known as "checks") to open slowly over time. Checking is a natural process in both air- and kiln-dried logs. This occurs in all log houses regardless of construction method or how the timber is allowed to dry, and is considered normal.
