There a many people who feel or believe that log cabins are not very much eco friendly in nature. There certainly are different reasons for that misconception, and one of them is that the cabins are made up of wooden logs. The fact is that log cabins use special types of split wooden logs that are long lasting and need not be replaced very often. Apart from this being natural they are also considered as better option over plaster for your house. Presently many architects consider them as better construction tools.
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.
With the coming of modern building technologies log cabin homes are now popular in many suburban areas as well as rural locations. Today these wooden buildings are built from pre-milled logs and usually come in kit form. The logs are visible as the exterior and usually interior of the home. Many people dream of owning a beautiful log cabin in their area. Of course, it is a very lovely dream and if you spend your time properly planning your project, you will get an ideal home. Log cabin homes are ideal as play rooms, gyms, pool houses, garden offices.
