They are a little tricky to get mounted on those logs but I think they look good.

    Ps I like the contrast the white rad gives to the dark wood.

    I agree. Everyone was pleased with the way it turned out.

    BTW, the house has radiant floor but that didn't quite cut it. This room is cathedral. Full logs on all exterior walls and going up into the gable. Also, quite a bit of glazing respective of the room size.

    Beautiful! Do you mind if I use this to show my customers what the panels look like on the wall? Buderus has a good catalog however it seems to be aimed at the contractor verse the customer.

    Nice job! The panel rads work well in almost all applications. Log cabins require floor rough-in so there needs to be a basement or adequate crawl space to install, but are a great choice for supplemental.

    Thanks guys.
    The rads are buderous. I had a 3 day wait time, sourced through RE Micheals.

    Feel free John.

    Nicely played! It's a craft to install a flat metal rad on a curved surface. That is a great heat emitter for log construction.

    Also log structures can be tough to heat and get an accurate load number, infiltration never sleeps, and the ever shrinking logs need yearly inspection and caulking updates.

    Looks great, I have a 1921 soft maple log home I will be working on this summer, if the builder ever gets the roof insulated and finished. I get to play with natural log shape, yay fun!

    I worked with a great log builder in Utah. He would mill, or flatten the bottom log so we could mount fin tube baseboard nice and plumb and rigid. It also stepped it in a bit for protection.
    He would do it with the chainsaw if we had the location to him early enough. He also had some custom routers that he could put the flat area after the logs were stacked.

    @Hotrod I was going to use Sammy screws and 3/8" rod to put the brackets on a flat plain. Your idea far is better for a new home or a job with a proper log home carpenter. I am pretty sure these old Maple logs would give me more fight than I would want.
