Logs and Architecture

Structures made out of logs hold position amongst the great architectural styles. Historians regard construction with logs to be a preeminent illustration of form and function. Unmatched natural grace and beauty, capable of grand and intimate scale, and renowned for structural integrity, durability, and environmental cohesion - projects utilizing logs claim distinction and endearment for which few compete.

Immensely popular worldwide, crossing cultural and regional boundaries, building with logs continues to flourish. Designs incorporating logs combine contemporary lifestyle, science & technology with traditional organic materials - maintaining comfort and personal expression along with the intrigue of historical continuity.

The Players

The heartland of the Log Home Building industry is in western North America - including, but not limited to, the of region encompassing Montana, Idaho, Colorado, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. Here, robust alpine forests dominate all but the tallest mountain peaks.  Many designers, producers and handcrafters set up location here, including Logmaker Systems, our firm that developed the Logmaker 3D CAD software in 1995.

"Organics via Mathematics" - this is how we described the challenge that faced us at Logmaker Systems in creating a program that would generate log homes in cyberspace. Flat walls covered in drywall is one thing, but mimicking mother nature's work with a CAD system is quite another.

Visual Imaging

"The ability to 'see' and 'interact' within the design has become paramount"
- Curt Frountier, International Log Builders Association

Log structures present unique design challenges, acting not only as cosmetic form, but also structural function.  Without knowledge of structural engineering, log joinery details, sheer strength, and more, a design which looks fine on paper may not be adequate in the real world of settling and massive loads.

Virtual Building advances the potential of design, display, analysis and documentation of log home design to levels previously beyond reach.  Thorough and insightful articulation insures that building design, construction and maintenance issues are uncovered and explored completely, prior to dedication.  Permitting simulated 'entry' into the design, the advanced visual display and interactive characteristics extends the capabilities of all interested participants - owners, designers, engineers, manufacturers, contractors, builders, tradesmen, inspectors, etc ...
