A rounded log is a milled log that has been machined with special equipment and has the same diameter along its length. Depending on the type of machine used, a log can be given a special profile.

The production process consists of the following steps:
1. Raw materials (logs) are pre-sorted by diameter. As a rule, the diameter of the logs measured at the top should be 20 mm larger than the diameter of the finished log.
2. Sorted raw materials are fed to the machine for processing.
3. After processing in a cylindering machine, the log is cut into the details of the house using circular or chain saws .
4. After making the bowls, every part of the house in the warm season is treated with an antiseptic . An antiseptic prevents the infection of fresh wood with fungi and mold .
5. The processed parts of the house are packed in transport packages and sent to the warehouse for further transportation to the assembly site.
The main types of machines used in the manufacture of round logs: positional (turning and milling) and through-type machines . For subsequent processing of the logs, broaching and centering machines are used, as well as machines for cutting “cups”.
Before you start cylindering, logs are sorted by diameter, and then put into processing. After giving the log a certain profile and cutting the “cups”, the log is antiseptic with special water-based compounds in order to protect the log from the influence of weather conditions during transportation and assembly of the building. This antiseptic for pre-treatment does not clog the capillaries of wood, which allows the log to naturally dry, while already in the building and not get sick with blue .
Also, in the production of a house from a log, it is very important to correctly make a longitudinal groove on a rounded log. Its diameter should be slightly smaller than the diameter of the log so that between the logs there is a small gap for the insulation. If the diameter of the groove and the logs coincide or the dimensions of the logs are larger, after the shrinkage of the log house this place may “open”. That is, the upper log will not touch the lower log with the entire surface of the groove, as it should be, but with only one central point.
Building a house
The construction of houses from logs takes much less time (from four to eight months), provided that such material is carefully manufactured and labeled. The construction process does not require the involvement of the forces of professionals who are engaged in the manufacture of log cabins from round timber . A log with the same diameter allows you to form a harder structure during the construction process and minimize the distance between the logs at the junction. Fitted closely due to the tightness of the corner and crown joints, they create strong walls and have increased insulating ability. The resulting surface looks smooth and does not require additional processing of the walls.
As a rule, it takes 4 to 6 months to dry the building (it depends on the time of year when the installation was made), after which the log is once again covered on the outside of the building with another type of antiseptic that prevents it from damping, decay , and damage by bugs . Since during the drying process, villi rise on the surface of the log, after this process is completed, to make the wall smooth, the logs inside the building are sanded and varnished .
