Enjoy nature. Many people choose log cabins because typically they are located close to nature. Imagine yourself waking up each morning to the sound of birds chirping in the trees, with views of the mountains as the sun rises, and in the evenings enjoying the night skies, lit up by hundreds of stars. Log cabins are often surrounded by nature and are a great way to disconnect from the stresses of your busy everyday life, and to reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.
Thermal mass. Thermal mass is a property of logs that allows them to store heat in the cold winter months and keep cooler in the warmer months. Thermal mass stores heat from the day's sunlight in the winter and releases it back into the log house at night or stores cold air from a summer night and releases it back into the house during the day. Since wood has a high heat capacity compared to other building materials, it greatly helps to regulate the temperature in a log home. In the heat of the daytime, the wall absorbs heat from the outside but the temperature of the wall rises slowly. As a result, the log wall stores the heat during the day but does not release as much heat into the home. As night falls, the temperature outside drops but the log wall has stored the heat from the daytime hours. The logs release this heat into the log home, providing warmth in the night.
