Log Homes are Healthful. Log homes are healthy because they don’t contain any chemicals that can cause off-gassing like man-made building materials. You can create a healthier indoor space for your family by using low-VOC (volatile Organic Compounds) stains and regular HVAC maintenance.
Log Homes are good for the environment. Log homes are good for the environment, even though you might hear people say they destroy forests. Log home builders often use standing dead timbers, which are trees that have been killed by insects or fire while standing. This improves forest health and reduces wildfire risk. Log house companies that use living trees practice reforestation. And unlike planned 2-by-4s or log homes, the milling process for log houses reduces construction waste and minimizes carbon footprint. Many log manufacturers use the scrap they produce to make mulch or biofuel to heat the mills.
Log House Design is versatile. Log house construction can be any style you desire, whether it’s a classic log cabin or a modern mountain chalet with contemporary architectural design and a mixture of building materials.
Open Concept is the norm. Log home designs have been open-concept since the beginning. Log home plans are as diverse as the options you have.
Energy efficient. Properly built log houses can meet or exceed today’s strict energy codes. Combining the R-value with the thermal mass of a log walls, tight sealant systems and high-quality roof insulation and windows will increase comfort while decreasing energy consumption. Log homes are also known as having high thermal mass. This means they stay cooler during the summer months and warmer during the winter.
