Log Home Contractor Al Anderson working on Wyoming Log Home
This portico was built by Nick Anderson from seasoned Douglas Fir. The custom 5,000 sq. ft. Log Home in Afton, Wyoming by Al & Nick Anderson, Montana School of Log Building "General Contractor" division, hand peeled, scribed, sawed each tree into place. The Lodgepole Pine averaged 16 inch butts and 10 inch tops - 50 feet long. [How can we help you with your Log Home project?]
This FOUNDATION TIP could save you THOUSANDS of dollars....
Ask yourself? How does a contractor put his log home on a foundation?
Al always bolts his logs down with 5/8" anchor bolts that are a minium 16 inches into conrete wall.
Al never restacks the logs (walls) on a rimmer system's floor joists!
This is a common mistake made by many architects and engineers, who just don't know a better way.
At the Montana School of Log Building, you learn a better way, BEST METHOD for foundation design for log homes. You learn the things you need to know to tackle and project of your own. We have advised and instructed many contractors, architects, structural engineers, building inspectors, insurance inspectors, and homeowners alike.
