There are remains of cordwood buildings in Greece and Siberia that date back a thousand years.


Before you Build:

As with all building methods, planning is necessary. Logs need to be dried to prevent expansion, shrinking and cracking. Trees should be cut and debarked, then allowed to dry for 1-2 years, before they are cut into lengths. Or, if you want your wood to dry faster, split it. The wood will dry faster, and it will crack and check less when in the wall. Before placing in the wall, spray or soak the cordwood in Borax. The Borax acts as an insecticide, a wood preservative and a fungicide. Use four cups of Borax (borate) mixed in a gallon of hot water. This can be sprayed on, or the logs can be dipped in the solution. You want your mortar to be 'soft' or a little flexible, not straight concrete or brick mud, because the logs continually shrink and swell.

R-value depends on the species of wood, thickness, and insulation you chose. Cedar has an R-value of 1.5 per inch; cut to 18" the R-value would be approximately R-27. The mortar will need to be insulated to bring the R-value up to par with the wood. In Canada, Cliff Stockey builds double wall homes (not shown): two cordwood walls with a vapor barrier and insulation in between. Cliff states that a 24" (8" cordwood + 8" insulation + 8" cordwood) double wall has an R value of 40+. Although this sounds like double the work, it is not, as you only need to point the outside and most inside wall.
