Shrinkage and Settlage

Settlage is dealt with in the Double Scribed Joinery in several ways and is worked into the building design. Here are a few examples of settlage details for the interior frame walls.


Kitchen wall framing
(furring out kitchen wall to hang cabinets)


Framed wall intersecting a log wall (2x4 framing fastened to log wall-wallboard on 2x4 wall - then the trim board is set in the slot notched in the log wall to cover the wall intersection.

A screwjack is built into a framed wall - Note, the space between the log, loft joints and lower frame wall. (Settling Space) The screwjack is a bolt and nut with washer that would need to be adjusted seasonally with other settlage adjustments. The screwjack would need to be covered with removable trim for accessibility.
