Houses of massive logs, laminated logs and round logs

The most traditional feature of a log building are the corner joints. We, Kuusamo Log Houses, have many different systems of joints and corners at our disposal when designing a log building, such as cross corner, short cross corner, sheered corner and log corner with dovetail joints.

Our technology allows us to design bespoke houses suited to the needs of each individual client. All our models can be built to incorporate almost any angle. The versatility of the logs as a building material facilitates modern architecture and design.

If you like the idea of designing or building your log home, there are two types of profile to choose from, a round or rectangular profiled log (also called level or square). Both profiles are also available as a solid log or a laminated log. The choice of one or the other will determine the look of your home, but not its functionality.       

They are structurally very similar and have the same thermo-acoustic properties. They also provide the originality and authenticity of the log construction method and satisfy the environmental regulations of the European Union.                    

 

Log buildings and timber construction

Log buildings have traditionally been built using corner joints. Modern log construction allows us to build a very compact building using what are known as short corners, where the timber of the building envelopes the corners.

We can also carry out cross corner joints, sheered corner joints or short cross corner joints on your building. Our sales team can help you choose suitable corner joints for your building.

Laminated Log 230 mm – cross corner joint

Round Log 230 mm – cross corner joint

Laminated Log 202 mm – short cross corner joint

Laminated Log 230 mm – sheered corner joint

Laminated Log 88 mm with ecological insulation wall

 

Log alternatives

The purpose of the building as well as your own personal preference will determine which of the logs below is the most suitable for your project.

For detached houses in a very cold climate areas we recommend the Kuusamo laminated logs 202, 230 or 275 x 220 mm, or the Kuusamo Traditional Massive Log 220x230 mm. For saunas, outbuildings, garages and small summer cottages the 95/120 mm planed logs or 88 mm laminated logs are cost effective and efficient alternatives.

Larger cottages and villas which are used occasionally through the year suit the intermediate sized logs: for example 120/145 mm planed log and 135 mm or 170/190 mm round log. Larger buildings used in the winter (very cold climate areas) or heated throughout the year require the largest of our Kuusamo round logs or laminated log 180 mm. For second-homes you need the same size logs as you would for a normal home.

Kuusamo representatives will help you choose the most suitable type of log for your building.
