Classic Timber Material Specifications

Classic Corners

Since 1952 Pan Abode has manufactured a Danish style (Classic) notch that allows precision milled wall timbers to connect at 90 degrees and create a locked in place joint. Corner Timber stubs are visible from the exterior of the building.

Exterior Wall System

Wall Timbers

Solid Air-Dried Western Red Cedar, Select Knot (SK) precision milled on four sides to create a tongue & groove connection. The wall timbers are precision end cut to exact length, notched to create lock joints at corners, labeled, wrapped and ready for on site assembly.

Single Timber Wall System

Wall timbers are 4x6, 3x6 for Tropical Climates. Graded for appearance on both faces.

Energy Wall System - (R-21)

Using 3x6 wall timbers, the interior wall surface is covered with R-19.5 rigid insulation. Included are kiln-dried 2x2" furring at 24" centerlines applied on the interior timber wall face. The Energy Wall System can be further upgraded with thicker insulation to obtain higher R values.

Double Wall System
