Furthermore, these "alien" structures are usually planned and built without observing the rules of log construction based on centuries of experience. e. in mountainous regions, and it requires specialists who are in the position of being able to design and erect such buildings properly. Settling allowance In log construction settling allowances are attributed a special significance. e. by way of constructional measures. g. a chimney stack, are constructed in such a way that the log wall can settle unhindered.

Interfaces must be readily identifiable. Planning Timber building and production drawings should be prepared according to the architect's drawings with the concepts for building services, fire protection, sound insulation, etc. plus the agreed architectural details and the drawings of the structural engineer. The planning of the timber building and the fabrication work should not be started until the main steps and all relevant details have been clarified. After the architect or the project manager has approved the timber building and production drawings, materials can be ordered and production can begin.

This form of construction had a considerable influence on the development of early European timber architecture and is very widespread. For example, in Russia and Scandinavia we encounter log structures that determine the look of the traditional surroundings. In such regions we not only find houses in log construction, but also palaces, towers, and churches. And in the mountainous regions of Central Europe, principally in the Alps, log construction has also played an important role in housing for the local inhabitants.
