Frame house

Timber frame house built by Norwegian technology is considered as one the of the most complicated in this area of construction. It is different from other frame structures in the way that only ground floor is made as the frame structure. Gable ends and skids are the same as in the log house.

Lower ledger of the frame consists of large square logs 300х350mm. Square log on the facade possesses a cone. In the upper part of the square cone log there is done the facet equal to the thickness of board with which it will later be finished. Below there is arranged a dropping nozzle to avoid water flowing under the house.

Lower trapezium shaped ledger of the frame house is 300Х350mm. In the left lower corner there is a kerf (dropping nozzle) to avoid water getting between the lower square log and foundation. In the left upper corner there is a kerf equal to the thickness of the finishing material. Any materials can be used for inside and outside finishing – glass, drywall, untrimmed board, siding and so on because the frame structure does not give the shrinkage.

Upper, cut part of the frame house is supported by large round or square, depending on design, timber carved posts with diameter 48 cm. Posts also play a great role in design of the house on the whole.
