Cordwood Sheds and Cabins - Beautiful And Simple To Build!
Categories: Building Methods
Also known as Stackwall, Stovewood, Firewood or Cordwood Masonry.
Short lengths of debarked trees (cordwood) are laid with a mixture of mortar and insulating materials - such as sawdust or spray foam - in between the mortar. The longer the length of the logs, the better the insulation qualities. 12 inches to 18 inches is most common and wood species will also determine insulating value. On average, a 12 inch wide wall will have a 20-25 R value. Cabin by Rob Roy.
