We have had lots of questions about the lightening conductor from other self builders and this does seem to be a poorly supported area of information. We have discussed this with the nice man who gave us some free advice over the phone, and he is happy for us to pass on his contact details. He is Daniel Turner at www.braileys.co.uk or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
He gave us advice on the number of conductors to have, (which depends on the soil around your house) the size of the copper “wire” etc. We made the conductor design ourselves. You can see more earlier entries about our lightening conductors in the LOG HOUSE CONSTRUCTION tab on this blog.
