The many reasons to love a log home…
For the Nostalgia of it
For some, their reasons are more aligned with the nostalgia of years gone by, a time before the world became so modern and disposable. We see log homes as a harkening back to the roots of our heritage and a way to connect with a bit of the past. Even if you aren’t truly living a life of self-sufficiency in the Yukon, the nuance of a log home provides that sense of primitive living that more modern homes simply can’t.
For the Beauty of Log Home Living Lifestyle
For others, there is just nothing more beautiful than a well-built log home. The strength and resilience of the logs, the fact that every architectural element fulfills a practical purpose, serve to make the structure only that much more elegant.
The Environmental Consciousness of Log Home Living Lifestyle
Another group of log home owners appreciate the environmental-friendliness that wooden structures have to offer. From being constructed almost entirely out of renewable resources to the energy-efficiency inherent within the timbers themselves, they appreciate the green living that log homes and timber frame homes bring to life.
The Refuge of Log Home Living Lifestyle
Still, for others, log homes are a refuge from the world around, a safe haven they can truly call home. Maybe there’s not even one particular reason they can put their fingers on as to why they love the log home lifestyle so much, but it fits who they are. It just feels right.
Even More Reasons to Love a Log Home
Aside from the emotional reasons to own a log home, there are many more practical reasons. Trees are renewable resources, giving log homes and log cabins the green stamp of approval. When a home is made from solid logs, you are effectively taking the carbon contained in those logs out of circulation over the entire life of the home. Besides the environment, your custom log home is sustainable too. Log cabin homes are more energy efficient than “traditional” homes. Log cabin homes are uniquely designed to help you stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, thanks to the R-value of wood used in a properly built home. With proper sealing, you can have a super energy efficient home, saving 15 to 20 percent more energy over a conventional home!
Whether your love for log homes comes from a sense of wanting to connect with nature, a burning desire for outdoor adventure, or simply the sense of peace it brings, own it – it’s who you are. Live it. Love it.
