The Benefits of a Log Home
Log homes have been around for a very long time. There are log homes still standing which date back over 800 years! Living in a log home invokes a sense of calmness, peace and solitude that helps us escape—if only for a few moments. Read more below about the benefits of a Log Home and take a look at one of the nicest I've seen in the area.  https://www.frankingham.com/Properties.php/Details/650

Trees are a renewable resource
Because trees are renewable, log homes start green. Other building materials which require significant processing can be harmful to the environment. When you own a log home, the logs act as your exterior walls, interior walls, and insulation all-in-one.

Energy efficient
Energy efficiency is important to consider. One of the interesting features of a log home, is that when you heat the logs they radiate warmth back into the room which increases energy efficiency. In warmer climates this works in reverse: when the sun is beating down on the exterior of the home it doesn’t transfer that heat to the interior. This means a cooler temperature in the summer and warmer in the winter.

They look good anywhere, any time
On top of a mountain, hidden in a bush, perched by a lake, or even in a suburb, log homes look amazing no matter where. They have a knack for standing out while blending in. Log homes remain timeless, their style doesn’t change with mainstream trends

Economical, long-term investment
Everyone looks for something a little different in a log home, but the reason to own a log home is often the same. Log homes stand the test of time. Solid wood walls last far longer than conventional homes and can withstand more of extreme weather than conventional building methods.
