In our wooden log houses we install electricity in the log walls. The procedure is very easy.
1. The client tells us where he plans to place switches, power outlets, TV-antenna cables, Ethernet cables and loudspeaker cables. Anything with a wire we can put it in the walls.
2. In the factory we pre-drill holes in the logs. When the log wall is assembled and ready, there will be a vertical “pipe” or hole in the wall, from the top almost all the way to the bottom. The lowest log is only drilled until 5 centimetre above the bottom of the log.
The above photo show the pre-drilled holes: some holes are for the wooden sticks that connect two logs, but other holes are for the electricity.
3. These vertical “pipes” can easily be reached with a drill. In Belgium and France, cabling often runs through the insulation in the floor. In The Netherlands electricity usually runs through the ceiling.
