"...Logs Homes...Natural & Renewable Materials!! "
“The log home is a fundamental American construction
concept. Some of the oldest occupied structures in North America are
log buildings, indicating their fundamental durability when properly
designed and constructed. Modern manufacturing methods are bringing
new technologies to bear in making log homes increasingly energy efficient
and even more long lasting.
Log homes are constructed of natural and renewable
materials that are inherently more environmentally efficient than
processed lumber in construction. Using logs can be a “green building”
method especially when the timber is produced locally (typically the
case), or the log home producers uses wind or fire-killed timber as the
log source. There are also manufactured log-type walls systems of
composite design where smaller dimensional wood and insulation materials
are combined to provide a log-like construction unit.”
