Although shrinkage in log homes is inevitable since living trees have high moisture content, not even drying the logs (including kiln drying) can remove all moisture and even dried wood exposed to the outside air will continue to expand and contract with seasonal changes in humidity. However, Lodge Log and Timber Products has a Thru-Bolt system that is truly revolutionary and is designed to securely attach log walls to the foundation. Thru-bolts are also loaded with tension springs to compensate for any shrinkage or settling that will inevitably occur over time (which can be as much as half an inch per eight feet of wall height). This system keeps log homes structurally sound and minimizes effects of settling so that the upper floor and roof are not forced to settle downwards over time. So you can sleep at night with the peace of mind that you are safe and secure in our Lodge Log and Timber products log home. But donít take my word for it. Lodge Log and Timber Products has over 3,000 happy, satisfied customers through more than four decades of fulfilling log home owners dreams of owning a beautiful and high-quality log home.
