It is necessary to mention that log cabins are more fire resistant than regular wood frame houses. Also, they are less likely to experience major fire damage. However, logs are not fireproof, but still a log building will burn at a much slower rate than a regular wood frame house. Solid log walls do not have air pockets that let the flames to spread very quickly through the building and burn a lot of places in a short time period. This will bring extra time to control the fire and move to a safe place.
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.
The next advantage is it’s strong and durable. These houses are very strong and durable. They can withstand the worst of weather conditions and will last longer than most other wooden houses. People often save money by using old timbers which are also very strong and durable. The last advantage is the cheap cost. The biggest advantage I can think of is money. Building it is far cheaper than building traditional wooden houses. Though the wood is strong but sometimes hard to find, you save a whole lot of money on labor and heating and cooling. So if you are thinking of building a new home soon do consider timber frames as an option.
