Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) March 11, 2009
True North Log Homes, a leading provider of high-end custom log homes, has just received building type and system approval in the United Kingdom by the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) for their advanced log wall system.
The LABC represents the building control departments within the local authorities of England and Wales, and ensures that buildings are healthy, safe, sustainable and accessible for all users. In addition to coordinating the technical application of building regulations and inspections in the UK, the LABC also plays a key role in encouraging innovative and high quality building. Recognizing the importance of energy efficiency and sustainability in all buildings, the LABC not only safeguards and protects the community with building control regulations; it also plays a key role in educating and informing the building community and consumers alike.
True North Log Homes owns multiple patents, including their innovative log wall system that is included in each home they build, for which they've received approval from the LABC. True North uses the naturally occurring shrinkage in their wood homes to its fullest advantage to make the log home airtight. As a True North log home settles, it actually ratchets itself tight pulling the log interfaces and keylock systems together. Their one-of-a-kind system guarantees for a period of twenty-five years that the log wall system, including the corners and butt joints will not leak air - making for an exceptionally efficient home for heating and cooling.
