Alexandria Ellison. Wooden House. June 22nd , 2018.
A log house is a house typically built of logs that have not been milled into conventional lumber and is structurally identical to a log cabin. The definition "log house" is used more often than "log cabin" by most builders because log cabins are usually smaller and more rustic log buildings (summer house in the woods, hunting cabins, tool houses, or a small hunting cabins). The log home has a long history. Vitruvius Polio was the first architect who described construction with logs in his Tactato del'architectura (Treatise on architecture). He wrote that in Pontus (today Romania, former Roman Empire province Dacia) residential buildings were made by laying horizontally over top of each other and filling in the gaps with "chips and mud". Construction with logs was widely used in Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden and Finland), the Baltic States and Northern Russia where most of the trees are straight, spiny and tall (pine, spruce). Also log construction was common building technique in Eastern Central Europe, the Balkans, the Alps and some parts of Asia, where similar climatic conditions dominate. In today's fast-moving world full of technological innovations log houses are built easily and can last hundreds of years.
Wooden houses are the perfect way to avoid noisy neighbors and other annoying details such as traffic and airplanes overhead. Most of the people try to avoid these disturbances. They expect that living in a log home is a way out, and it really is! Wooden homeowners are less likely to notice these inconveniences because of thickness of hardwood structure. Wood is robust and tough building material. It means that sound and noise hardly go through this heavy material. Living in a log cabin gives you a chance to forget about noisy neighbors, airplanes overhead and traffic. The result is a more relaxing house environment and noise reduction.
