Log Cabin Living

Log cabin living isn’t just for our forefathers. The styles available from wood can be magnificent and beautiful.

Log cabin living isn’t just for our forefathers. The styles available from wood can be magnificent and beautiful. They articulate the natural elegance of the world around us. Between being rustic and homey, there are some great things about living in a home styled as a log cabin.

Log Cabins are described as cozy because they have fantastic insulation. Whether the winter is frozen or the summer is boiling, it should stay temperate indoors. Wood naturally works to protect from the outdoor elements. That might be why trees can stand for hundreds of years.

It is also greener. When many homes are built with refined materials, a wood home is built with wood. This means less industrial reliance. It hurts far less trees by using them as the main material. A little backward logic can save the rainforest.

Also, some woods are cheaper as building materials. A new structure or repairs on an old structure can be priced differently depending on the wood used. Choosing the right log cabin can mean a beautiful living experience without the high costs.

For ½ wood homes, financing is easier to secure than for a normal home or a full log cabin. Anything that makes real estate deals lock in faster is a good thing. With good financing options, you can upgrade to a gorgeous home.

For mountaineers, there is nothing better than smelling the outdoors. It’s almost like they could live out there. Instead, take the outdoors, inside. The smell of a log cabin is intoxicating and leaves an outdoorsy perfume permanently across the threshold.

And log cabins are truly gorgeous. They hold a level of elegance and prestige through their old age. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel when an amazing option has been used in mountains for years.

As a final bonus benefit, you can pretend to be Daniel Boone. If you aren’t convinced by any of these great opportunities, then there are many more Tahoe luxury property styles. There is something for everyone!
