There are several benefits to living in and owning a log home. Log homes have been around for a very long time. There are log cabins that are still standing that date back over 800 years. Living in a log cabin invokes a sense of calmness, peace, and solitude that helps you escape, if only for a few moments. Another benefit of log homes is that trees are a renewable resource. As trees are renewable, log homes start green. Other building materials which require significant processing can be harmful to the environment. On top of that, they are significantly easier to build and require fewer building materials than a conventional home. If you think about it when you build a log home, the logs act as your exterior walls, interior walls, and insulation all in one.
Energy efficient. Energy efficiency is important to consider when building a home. One of the best features of a log home is that when you heat the logs they radiate warmth back into the log home which increases energy efficiency. In warmer climates, this works in reverse so when the sun is beating down on the exterior of the log home it doesn’t transfer that heat to the interior. This means a cooler temperature in the summer and a warmer temperature in the winter. Log homes also look good anywhere, anytime. Whether the log home sits on top of a mountain, hidden in the forest, set by a lake, or even in a suburb, log homes look amazing no matter where you build one. Log homes remain timeless, their style doesn’t change with the mainstream trends.
Economical, long-term investment. Everyone looks for something a little different in a log home, but the reasons to build or live in a log home are often the same. A well-built log home stands the test of time. Solid wood walls can last far longer than conventional homes and can withstand more of Mother Nature’s fury than conventional building methods. A log home built with quality building materials can last for future generations.
