Slotting log walls

wall-slot-for-siding.jpg¬†Whilst the errection of the external log walls is pretty straight forward, the internal marriage of the stud work walls to the log walls is poorly detailed by the log house suppliers. Where we have decided to use log “siding” (2″ thick slices of log which look like a full 8″ log but are fixed like monster sized “tongue and groove” to the stud framework) in order to get a good seal between adjoining rooms we are cutting a 2″ slot so that the siding does not leave a cheek shaped hole between each log. The devil as they say is in the detail.
