A 3-4 bedroom log house with a building area of 84 m2. The glazed facade, which faces the sun, is concealed under the wide roof overhang. This design favors the building's heat-technical properties, shielding the premises from overheating in the summer while allowing warming sunlight in during the winter.
Wooden terraces on both side facades of the building feature an extended overhang to protect the entrance door from rain. One of them serves as a distinct backdoor facade, where the entrance door through the dressing room leads to the living room with a fireplace. From the living room, one can access the kitchen, office, or rooms on the loft floor. Next to the dressing room, there is a laundry room with an additional wardrobe and a bathroom on the first floor.
In the loft, there are the master bedroom, two children's bedrooms, a bathroom, and a small technical room.
Functional planning takes precedence in the end facades, where small windows are strategically placed, foregoing extensive glazing. The loft, on the other hand, boasts delightful French balconies.
Log house wooden construction
At the building base, there's an insulated reinforced concrete slab on the ground or a strip foundation, chosen for steeper terrains. Infrequently used concrete strips form the framework for the terrace. Beneath the initial log row, an extruded polystyrene strip acts as both waterproofing and heat sealing insulation simultaneously.
Threaded rods secure the initial row of logs to the base. Rainwater collects in wells positioned at the corners of the building, providing options for either collection or direct passage into the drainage system.
The log cabin is constructed using an independent tongue for lateral grove and a simple overlap corner joint with a vertical insulation channel. This approach ensures optimal wall density, yet for absolute satisfaction, it is recommended to fill the seams with an insulating sealant - chinking.
For the loft floor, meticulously milled massive joists are housed within combined main beams. The roof structure is supported by a frame consisting of two girts on eight posts, ensuring longitudinal stability through bracing and transverse stability via the main rafters.
Following that, the common rafters, the external wall insulation frame, and wind boards are installed.
