A log home or log cabin is typically a home that has been built out of logs. Log homes have been around for thousands of years, as they were a type of build that made sense by using what was available on the land. In areas such as Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Baltic States and Russia, log home construction was the most popular building technique. As these areas have lots of tall and straight coniferous trees, like spruce and pine trees to use. In areas of the world that are warmer and deciduous trees are more readily available, you will find more timber framed homes being built.
There are a number of different logs styles that are used to build log houses. From sawn logs that are logs that are all cut to a certain width. Milled logs, which are manufactured logs to all have the same appearance and size. Handcrafted logs, that are logs that look similar to their original appearance when they were trees, except for being peeled of their bark.
There's something about living in a log home or log cabin that makes us feel comfortable, and at home. I can remember growing up, spending time in the log cabin my grandfather built, there was something significant about owning a cabin that was a part of our family. The log cabin was built from trees that were on the property, and the log cabin was located on a lake. The only way to the log cabin was by boat, making the location that much more special, as it wasn't exactly easy to get there. Perhaps it's that tradition that log homes and log cabins have held through the years, they are some of the first homes in the area in which they stood or stand. There is also something to be said about living in a home that is made with all natural materials, it ties you to where you live and furthers your connection to nature. Now more than ever it's important to feel a connection to the places and the environments we live in, especially with cities become more densely populated, and populations growing wherever you go. Being able to stay in a log home, log cabin or log chalet somehow keeps us in touch with our heritage, along with giving us a stronger connection to nature and what we have to do to take care of the environment. This is also very important for children, with all the technology they are surrounded by, they need to have that tie to nature.
A log cabin like this one will range between around $20,000 and $40,000, depending on if you prefer to order the just the log shell, or a more complete build.
