AbstractAt its 30th meeting, the Standing Committee on Energy Conservation in Buildings requested that a study be undertaken of the life cycle cost of log walls (solid wood walls), to assist in determining what should be the appropriate prescriptive requirements for such walls in the National Energy Code for Houses. In response to this request, the Building Performance Laboratory, Institute for Research in Construction, performed life cycle cost analysis of log walls in consultation with the Canadian Manufactured Housing Association, with funding from Natural Resources Canada.
