Over the course of the next several days, Timber Block Insulated Log Homes will be answering the top 10 most frequently asked questions.
How is the electrical wiring done in a Timber Block home?
After the floor plan is created, and finalized, the Timber Block home goes into production where the logs are insulated, sanded and pre-stained at the factory. The logs are then stacked and thru-bolted every 24 inches and bonded under 6000 pounds of pressure. The areas where the windows will go are cut out, and protected for easy on-site installation.
When the home is delivered on-site, the wall raising begins. Then there is the dry in stage, and electricial wiring.
So, how is the electrical wiring completed? It’s actually quite simple!
The electrical is done on-site and is fairly straightforward, as opposed to conventional log construction where it must be done in advance.
For the exterior wall outlets, a vertical hole is drilled in the underside of the wall sections just prior to setting them in-place. The circuits are then wired through the floor joists/trusses and fished up into the wall. Your builder will then simply drill, and jigsaw out a rectangle in the wood wall to accommodate the electrical box.
For switches or lights, a line can be run up between the wall sections.
All the interior walls are conventional 2×4 stick frame construction.
