    House from wood...

    I have a new client asking me for some houses made by logs... like the attachment...
    I remember a thread at Augi forums and I was wondering if there is any family available or a way to create such walls
    Thank you in advance...

    For the walls, you could attach a series of reveals, to "fake" the logs.
    I´ve attached some examples that I´ve created for a similar question on a Danish forum.

    The rest could probably be done using beams and columns...

    You should also see this post by Mikle1982, and maybe get in touch with him to start sharing

      I used to do this for a dutch GC. Here are some examples from them in a template file. You would have to adjust the reveals and wall thickness but this should do.

      OK: Munkholm, would you please enable the upload of RTE-files?

          Thank you but as I can see, you need one wall for each height... and for each width of the logs (I think they use two). I would prefer this to be my last solution..but probably this is the only one...

            Here's my template as stated above.

            In these examples the reveals go up to about 4-5m so that you can use the walls on the most common heights.

              I had the same question a while ago and what I ended up doing was creating 'sweeps' to represent the logs in 3D views, elevations, etc. Then there were wall hosted families to represent the log ends. Came out pretty well - I don't know of any other way to do it Revit and I'm adding on to the original project so if anyone has a better way I'd sure like to hear it.

                  I can see some problems when editing wall profiles because of the reveals..
                  Check the two images...it seems like something is added to the wall... those triangles...

                    Which method did you use?
