Why a Log House?

Ecological Home – Material Matters!

All people want a house that’s built to last. A house that’s safe, sturdy and ecological. A house that’s designed to meet the unique needs and desires of those who live within its walls. But most of all, everyone wants a modern, functional, warm and inviting place to call home.

When it comes to environmentally friendly building materials, wood is in a league of its own. The fact that it’s a renewable resource is just one of its many attributes. The production of solid wood logs uses 50% less energy than the production of cement and 80% less than the production of bricks. That means each and every log house is a unique, ecological home and a healthy, happy, safe place to live. Naturally.

 

Log house is good to breathe in!
According to recent research results, a log house has a very good indoor air. The insulation capacity of log is excellent and it efficiently evens out heat and moisture in indoor air. Log binds moisture and evenly releases it back into indoor air during drier seasons (IBP Report HTB-04/2004/e (moisture buffering effects of interior linings made from wood or wood based products). The houses made of tree logs are the most healthy to live in due to the lack of harmful synthetic and chemical materials.

Log also evens out temperature variations. In summer, a log house stays cool and in winter agreeably warm. During autumn and spring, log also collects energy from sunlight. Log is an individual and beautiful construction material that you can use in decoration to create a natural and warm wood surface. It gives a house an inimitably valuable and personal spirit.

A log building with its heat and humidity balancing properties ensures that the relative humidity of indoor air almost always remains within the optimal range in terms of indoor air quality (relative humidity 30 – 55%). Deviations from this humidity range considerably increase dust, viruses and bacteria in indoor air.

Comfortable and luxurious rooms, energy effective wooden windows and spacious places are big advantage for a family to live in the best house – log type from Finnish polar pine.

Living your childhood dream in a cozy interior

Living in a log home is a magical experience. It brings to mind images of our childhood fairy tales. The everlasting smell of wood makes you feel you like you live in a forest. The unusual ceilings, the inside architecture and log patterns always make the house interesting and happy to live in. It is impossible to get this feeling unless you actually enter a log house.
