The wood can be considered a renewable energy.
It requires little processing, and therefore is a low energy cost, unlike concrete and steel which processes are not only energy-guzzling but also pollutants.
Log constructions, when properly maintained, can last hundreds of years!
A log home offers a high resistance to fire, weather and earthquakes.
Gain comfort and make energy savings!
The energy factor varies depending on the diameter of the logs used.
The ability of wood to absorb and restore moisture to the air ensures a healthy indoor environment.
In addition to natural ventilation, the wood has a pleasant smell, without harmful vapors.
Our buildings are made in accordance with the Scandinavian technique following the next construction steps :
We use several species (cedar, pine or spruce). The trees are carefully selected. The trunk should be straight with a regular diameter.
As for their size, they vary according to the specifics of each project.
The logs are carefully peeled with a drawknife, an electric planer or a pressure washer. The original shape of the trunk is preserved in order to ensure the uniqueness of each building.
This step requires a lot of care.
We use the scribed-fit noches scandinavian technique to accurately reproduce the relief of the lower block to the upper block. Using this technique, the wood pieces fit perfectly on each other, ensuring a good seal without leakage between the logs.
The logs are carved, one by one, with chain saw and chisel.
The logs are laid on top of each other as soon as they are cut. If the structure has been prepared elsewhere on your site, when the construction is finished, the logs are numbered and routed. The structure is then raised, without nails or screws on the foundations.
The logs are compacted with time for about five years. The stabilization of the structure is taken into account during the construction of the log home. Doorways and windows are made accordingly, as well as stairs, plumbing and fireplace.
Logs are not only used for the construction of frame houses and cottages, but also for the craftsmanship of stairs, interior and exterior furniture (benches, stools, tables, bar...), specific facilities (fences, gazebos, saunas...) and anything else that crosses your mind.
