Whether you are looking to own a luxury log cabin for full-time living, a guest cabin, or a small cabin building for vacations away, there are a wide variety of styles to choose from. The following are some of the benefits of log homeownership and are worth considering when you are thinking about log cabin living.
Appealing. The rustic character of a log home attracts a great deal of admiration and attention. Skilled hand-craftsmanship and impressive natural logs create functional works of art you can live in and appreciate.
Cozy. The combination of logs and natural building materials evokes a natural warmth that makes any size of log structure feel cozy and warm.
Energy-Efficient. Log homes are more energy-efficient than traditionally built homes. Log homes are uniquely designed to help you stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, thanks to the R-value of the logs that are used in a properly built home. Log homeowners can enjoy the rustic appeal their home provides. More than an R-value, large-diameter log walls give you the benefit of thermal mass which helps keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Health. Logs are natural building materials that do not have any negative effects on an individual’s health. When logs are used as a building material, they make a log cabin building friendly to the environment. You can construct a log cabin built from natural materials that make a much healthier interior living climate.
Long-Term Investment. Log homes provide an economical and long-term investment. There is a reason you can visit log cabins that have been around for hundreds of years, and that is because they are built to last. A log home will be an asset you can hand down to future generations, and there are log cabins available that can fit a wide range of budgets and needs.
Maintenance. Log cabin maintenance is easier than most people realize especially as potential problems that homeowners often face are easy to find. One example is that termite infiltration is easier to spot in a log cabin building than they are in a traditional home.
Recyclable. Trees are a recyclable resource that gives log homes a good advantage. Logs can be assembled and recycled to construct a new log cabin building. When the time comes and these building materials are reclaimed, they help to reduce waste.
Relaxing. Natural elements in your log home promote relaxation and log homes give the maximum benefits. You can feel it even if it takes a psychologist to explain it.
Sustainable. Trees are a renewable resource. Handcrafted log house construction utilizes the entire log which drastically reduces the amount of wood waste from every tree harvested.
