The energy production that is required to harvest wood is less than what is necessary for the manufacturing of human-made building materials. The greenhouse gas emissions are reduced with the construction of a cabin building, as nearly 10 percent of the global CO2 emissions are a result of the production of concrete as a building material. It is said that when a ton of concrete is produced, that a ton of CO2 is produced. Many cabin building construction companies make it their mission to invest in the reforestation of trees and re constantly looking at ways to improve green building practices. Staying in a wood cabin will help to lessen your carbon footprint.
To help improve green building practices, many companies and contractors looking at ways to use recycled wood and quality pieces of dismantled older structures. Unfortunately, as new buildings are erected, hundred-year-old buildings are demolished and knocked down. When the building materials from these older houses are reclaimed, not only is it less wasteful it gives new life to old materials making them useful once again and character to the new project. Using reclaimed building materials is a good way to have your new wood cabin or weekend retreat tell a story. The best logs and wood to use in cabin building are cedar, spruce, pine, larch and fir. Wood cabins are often built with the natural surroundings in mind, built with great views and consideration for the preservation of the local environment and habitat.
