Frida Hartman. Wooden House. July 24th , 2018.
It is believed that the first log cabins have been built in Sweden and were named after the man who constructed a small and simple house for his relatives when they settled down to America in the Delaware Valley place in the early 18th century. This area is famous for being the area near where a lot of history of the United States ensued. North America took a significant part in the history of Log Houses - this is the place where they became prevalent, were improved and developed. Log cabins were quickly developed by other colonists and Native Americans. The oldest recorded North American log house is the C. A. Nothnagle Log House (1640) in New Jersey and was built by Swedes. Afterwards German settlers developed log houses building methods and wooden houses were build all over the area as sign of the border.
If you want to have a really sturdy and durable house, you have to search for those builders who have a lot of experience in this area. Some log home builders may use old building methods. There is a big difference constructing a regular duplex in the town and a log house the middle of the woods. It is better to deal with the companies that will give you plans and a detailed layout of each wall which shows the location of each numbered log and where the bolts should be located. What is more, they have to give you a list of materials, a description of each material. They should also give you a list of equipment and tools you will need. It is also good to have a guide of useful tips and some extra logs.
