(English) Why non-settling log is so superior for modern log house?

(English) The non-settling log permits the use of a wide range of advanced architectural solutions and structural details, such as windows and doors without covering strips. While the non-settling log system is more expensive than the lamella log, the difference in price is compensated by the fact that no allowance needs to be made for settling and there is no need for post-construction adjustment of screw jacks, windows, doors, etc. Non-settling logs are made of spruce or pine.
