Today’s log homes are 15% more energy efficient than a standard home due to the wood’s ability to hold temperature, thereby demanding less energy consumption.  Log homes are a natural sound insulator as well, giving the home owner a more comfortable environment.  The air quality in a log home is also superior, making it a good choice for those with allergies and environmental sensitivities.

Log homes are environment friendly, as they use natural renewable resources and the building process makes use of less toxic materials.  Although log cabins are more expensive to build, they hold their value well.  There is a higher demand than availability for them and log cabins are often quite luxurious.
