How do you run wire in a log home?
Also asked, how do log cabins get electricity?
Installing Electric Supply to the Log Cabin The only real solution here is to install a circuit called a “submain” in armoured cable. This will then run to a small distribution board in the cabin. The armoured cable must be protected against damage.
Also, how do you fasten logs together? There are two types of fastening techniques used to connect wall logs -- mechanical fastening and adhesive bonding. Mechanical fasteners include bolts, drift pins, lag screws, log/timber screws and spikes. Adhesive bonding is accomplished by placing a bead of mastic or sealant product along the length of the log.
Then, how much does it cost to wire a log cabin?
Construction takes eight to nine months and ranges from $125 to $175 per square foot, Beauchesne says. “The typical cost for a turnkey log cabin, with land, can run anywhere from $175,000 up to $350,000 or more depending on the size,” he says.
