The Numerous Advantages of Log Cabins

submitted on 19 September 2022
The Numerous Advantages of Log Cabins Log cabins are a great way to add extra space at home for your needs and leisure time. They are, often, a project many of us have kept in the back of our minds for a while. On one side, a beautiful log house in our garden seems like the perfect, idyllic corner that increases our quality of life. Still, on the other, we might have doubts about the durability, cost, or other features of log cabins. The good news is there are numerous advantages to owning a log cabin.


Wood has always been a noble material, with an original and unique aesthetic. But besides looking great, it is resistant and keeps its features through time. Its durability is, in fact, an attribute that surprises a lot of people. A log cabinet or even a wood house can last for a lifetime with the right maintenance - which, by the way, is not a hard one. Log cabinets are also a lot cheaper than masonry annexes. Construction materials such as cement, bricks, paint or finishes are generally more expensive than wood - and nowadays, even more - and most of the time you donít need as much manpower. If we consider a masonry house with the same finishing quality and habitability conditions, surely the alternative in wood will be more competitive, also because of the speed of assembly and the ease of finishing.

By blocking the passage of sound more efficiently, wood is the ideal material for those who want to dedicate themselves to tasks that require focus, such as working. This is one of the reasons that has led many people to create home offices using this material. On the other hand, the good acoustic insulation also makes log cabins the ideal place to practice yoga, meditation, engage in a hobby or simply relax. Besides all the functional advantages of wood, it is, in fact, very common to see cottages and retreat spaces built in this material. This is because wood gives a great sense of well-being, relaxation, and comfort, thanks to its warm tones, which bring us back to the idea of countryside and nature. Thus, a log cabin is a great option if you like a more rustic and cosy atmosphere.

And they provide great thermal comfort as well. You will likely not need air conditioning in the summer, and in the colder seasons, provided the log cabin is sealed properly, a simple heating solution, like a wood burner, is enough to maintain a comfortable temperature. The space also gets warm quickly due to the woodís thermal mass, a natural property that keeps a stable temperature all year round.

Last, but definitely not least, the materials required to build a log cabin are the most environmentally friendly. Less energy is required to harvest wood than to manufacture traditional construction materials, and when building with wood, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced. Statistics even point out that at least 8% of global emissions caused by humans come from the cement industry. This way, if you own a log cabin or even a wood house, your carbon footprint is smaller.

Hopefully, our article helped you clarify the advantages of log cabins. Now, itís time to start browsing! In this webpage you will find lots of stylish log cabins to suit all your needs.
