Swaying tree log homes


Log homes are usually found in the coldest parts of the world - the mountains of Scandinavia, Russia, Austria, Canada etc.  The main reason for this being their ability to hold an re-radiate heat - and their ease of construction under difficult conditions!  

Log profiles

To provide you with the wall material of your liking, we have developed a wide range of different solid and Glulam log profiles.

 Product range includes 34 different log profiles either from spruce or pine material.

Extra insulation

We offer a special extra insulation system for our log walls.

Using this solution on the exterior side of the wall allows you to cover the walls with a material of your liking and adding an extra layer of insulation between the wall and exterior façade.

Profiles With insolation



Norlog Construction is the modern precision machined version of the long established system of log construction.  Each flat log is planed with a three tongued and grooved sections which fit together accurately and the round log a saddle joint and both with halving machined into the logs at the intersections.

A certain amount of movement and settlement of the building takes place after erection due to natural drying out and shrinkage.  This must be accurately calculated and allowed for during construction and requires specialist skill and experience.
  Without this necessary experience, serious structural problems will almost inevitably arise, many of which will not be evident until it is too late for any remedial action to be taken.  Wood is not a stable material - it shrinks and swells as it gives up and absorbs moisture. Wood moves throughout its life, it does not matter if it is kiln-dried, air-dried or green, log homes are going to settle.  The sensible thing to do is design for that settlement.

It is important to protect the buildings from extreme weather conditions.  On extremely exposed sites where it is not possible to protect the buildings naturally it is possible, after settlement has taken place, to clad the external walls with log profile boarding, which gives the logwork additional protection.  Or certain sealants can be used at this time.
