Why should you choose a Log Home over a standard, stick-frame house? Below are just a few of the reasons we love these unique structures.
Environmentally Friendly – While this may not be the first thing that comes to mind when looking at a log cabin, there are a few things that make a log house more friendly to the environment then a standard house:
- Fewer Trees Used. On average, a log home uses two to twelve fewer trees than a standard home, depending on the ability of the log builder. (Approximately 2.75 cubic feet of log are required for every 1 cubic of dimensional lumber, the rest is turned into sawdust. Fortunately some of this is able to be converted into paper products, but requires more processing.)
- Energy-efficient. Let’s think about how far a piece of dimensional lumber travels: It gets logged in the forest, then gets trucked to the processing plant, then to the local lumber yard, and finally to your home. In comparison, as often as possible we source our logs locally, usually with 100 miles.
Unique – No other home has quite the same look or feel as a hand-crafted log home does. The large timbers with their spiraling grain, the smell of pine, and the solid feel of the massive logs encasing the home is what draws many people to these structures.
We believe that log homes are amazing structures. They are energy-efficient, unique, and environmentally friendly. They are also often misunderstood and sometimes seen as high-maintenance and inefficient due to poor design and build quality.
We would like to change this misunderstanding of log homes. Using our experience offering log home maintenance we have discovered several key design issues that can be integrated into the design and construction of log structures to minimize maintenance and maximize energy retention.
