When you think of how many log homes are built compared to how many total houses are built a year, log homes make up a very small number. As a result, not much research had been done on log homes nor had many codes been written pertaining to log homes specifically. In fact, it wasn’t until roughly 6 years ago that the ICC (International Code Council) updated their provisions to include requirements for log homes.

The Department of Energy conducted research on the energy efficiency of mass walls compared to framed walls. Here is the link ---https://www.osti.gov/servlets/purl/6488
