The choice in favor of logs of a particular size is determined by studying the conditions of a particular climatic zone. The tree should be well dried.

The thickness of the beam is in proportional dependence on the average (annual) ambient temperature: the warmer on the street, the more subtle logs go to the building, and vice versa.

A log house made of cylindrical logs is subject to additional deformation. The reason lies in the geometry of building elements: the rounded shape slightly prevents shrinkage, which is why angular distortions occur. The reason is a sharp shrinkage can lead to violations of the workpiece technology. A separate topic – houses made of timber, erected from logs, the processing of which was conducted manually. The structure is less cracking, the shrinkage of the house slows down.
