The Real Meaning Behind the Term "True Stacked Construction"

Anyone who is either building their own home, or plays any kind of part in the housing industry, the term "True Stacked Construction" may be familiar, especially when referencing prefabricated homes or structures. 

What does "True Stacked Construction" really mean, and why is it important?

Timber Block homes and buildings are all constructed in what we call a "panelized" format. However, unlike other panelized homes, or SIPS panels, each piece of wood, or insulated "log" is "truly" stacked: so stacked individually. Once the logs are stacked, they are then thru-bolted.

This is something that is extremely important because this gets rid of any sort of hassle associated with assembling on site, which saves a significant amount of time, therefore a hefty amount of cash. This also eliminates any sort of risks a homeowner or builder may face when it comes to things like weather, bugs, critters and more, as our panels are constructed inside our factory, which is climate and quality controlled.

Other benefits of the Timber Block system

Timber Block's unique, award-winning panelized system technology results in no chance of checking or settling. This is one of the biggest concerns home builders and homeowners have when building a wood, or log home. Settling happens when the wood shrinks AFTER the home is built. Checking is a crack in the wood as it dries (or changes the level of moisture).

Typically, builders will leave gaps in spots, such as between the wood and windows or doors to give it "room" to move. Of course, it's almost impossible to predict exactly how much the wood will expand or move, so the end result is almost always a loss of energy efficiency. This is why Timber Block's unique process is so sought-after - the wood we use (with each and every home we build) is dried to an 8-10 percent moisture content, This, along with our patented assembly procedure completely eliminates the risk of both settling and checking.
