Tech/Engineering - Architecture / log house construction
German term or phrase: Brettstapeldecke
This is for an article on log house construction. I saw images on the internet showing a "Brettstapeldecke" as a multi-layer ceiling construction, but could not find any English term.

Der stabile und massive Wandaufbau ermöglicht zudem eine Vielfalt an Deckensystemen, beispielsweise Unterzüge für sichtbare eckenkonstruktionen oder alternative {Brettstapeldecken,} die ebenfalls im Werk vorgefertigt werden können.

Any help much appreciated!
