“How do Log Cabin Design Principles
affect Your project?”
Do you know what the log cabin design principles are? Well some countries, like Finland, who manufacture a lot of log buildings actually produce their own guidelines for log cabin design principles. Most people probably haven’t heard of them, but they are basically the fundamental requirements for log cabin design. I have added one or two additional areas of design criteria too, as I have seen these issues come up time and time again, over the years!
As log cabins are unique in how the achieve their structural strength and rigidity, so their design most follow certain criteria. The logs also act as lintels over window and door openings. They can be supporting beams. Crucially log structures settle and this is probably one of the single most important factors, which must be allowed for in the design process. The size and type of the log is also key here as smaller logs will offer less design flexibility. Also never forget to research the roof design and roof tiles early on in your project, as changing your mind later on could affect the whole structural design of your log cabin!
