FUNDAMENTALS

About 90% of today’s timber-frame homes on the US market come as pre-engineered packages each made in one of some 400 log mill factories. In these factories, structural engineers take on challenges presented by wood construction such as log shrinkage. A building material package typically consists of log walls, roof system, doors, windows and porches.
