Wall insulating kit: Add 10% Kit includes metal brackets & 3/4″ tongue & groove wall cover boards for the perimeter walls being insulated. Studs and insulation are supplied locally by the customer.
Exceptional energy efficiency: When using 2×4 studs, the walls are insulated with R-12 or R-15 to meet building codes. If 2×6 studs are used, then R-20 or R-24 insulating is used. This combined with the solid wood walls provide unmatched thermal value with virtually no conductivity.
Tip: Mineral wool insulation is recommended for log construction. It’s impervious to moisture with a higher R-value per inch than fiberglass, reduces noise levels & is environmentally friendly
Insulating the roof: This is done using locally supplied materials over the supplied tongue & groove roof boards. Build up to the required depth to house insulation and install metal roofing or shingles. High density spray foam provides maximum benefits, highest R-value for thickness & is water proof
Assembly: total weight is approx. 18,636 lbs. The kit is ready to assemble on a wood floor or concrete slab and can be assembled in 8 days or less with 3 people
Building Codes: This model passes structural requirements for building codes in USA and Canada, and Title 24 for California. Modifications may be required for earthquake, heavy snow load regions and hurricane zones for a small upcharge
Tip: House wraps & vapor barriers are required in most regions when insulating. Vapor barriers are installed on the warm side of walls, interior of the studs for cold climates and exterior of studs for hot climates
Structural Engineering: Stamped structural engineering can be provided for a minimal fee
