Sources of Information

At the request of our clients, we are happy to offer the following links to resource information on log and timber construction. The goal is to limit these to unbiased, objective material.  If  we allow some proprietary information to slide in, please forgive us.  We must have found something useful in it!

For more information about the design and construction of wood structures, please visit http://www.awc.org/HelpOutreach/faq/FAQfiles/Log_Structures.html prepared by the American Wood Council.
