I am sure that you really heard about log cabins. Long time ago - it was one of the most popular buildings in the world. Log home, churches builded from logs, schools and other buildings. It is really strange, but a lot of buildings are strong standing by now (the oldest wooden church is standing in Russia). So no one could believe, that timber is one of the best materials which could be useful almost everywhere you need - starting from small details and completing with big houses. Nowadays log cabins become more and more popular, so I want to write about advantages of these wooden construction`s houses.
Firstly it could be financially beneficial investment and useful like a living home. It could be not only cash estimated property, but give you a joy like real home. In these days there are less cabins for sale, than people who wants to buy them.
If we compare bricks or block houses with log cabins benefits, I am sure that log cabins unquestionably win. Firstly these wooden houses you could build more faster, constructions are more easier to connect. There is no need additional wall insulation.
Better warmth and cooler system. Imagine, that there is very cold winter outside. The sun was shining all day, so log cabin took warmth through the windows and kept it inside. In that way you will enough only fireplace to keep warm temperature inside. In summer it is a little bit different. This building is like a thermos - it keeps a temperature inside and won`t let it in and out.
Wooden constructions can naturally integrate to the landscape of forest or village. It do not look like big mound of stones. And I have to mention that it is healthy and friendly building not only for nature but for people`s wellness too. The landscape affect your emotions and do influence to a good feeling of yourself.
Wood is a warm material by itself, it has thermal mass, which helps to keep normal temperature inside for all seasons. So fire place sometime will be necessary not because of it is cold inside, but more because to feel cozy.
There is less humidity, so you can avoid mold or mildew. But if you saw them somewhere - there are a lot of materials which are necessary in fighting with unwanted organisms. But when your roof and rain water drain pipe is clearly arranged - there would be very small ability to find mold or mildew at your home.
Log cabins have less fire hazard ability. The possibility, that everything will burn is less then in a brick house, because timber constructions are too big to get quick fire here. It is great that there are a lot of fireproof materials, which are use for wood surface covering.
To summing everything I could say, that living in a log cabin is one of the best thing in nowadays. There are a lot of benefits which tempts to look for sale. In my opinion there would be more log cabins
buyers in the out-of-town areas, countries, villages, because living in the city is no longer attractive like it was 15 years ago. A lot of people understand now, that having his own space, his own yard or garden is one of the most greatest things to relax, to run from routine, to enjoy silence, healthy weather by sitting in your own log cabin terrace. It has no negative causes to your emotions and health, only peace and good atmosphere. This type of building will make to love you that place where you are.
