Even later, in the 19th century, the industrialization of society changed the look of the log houses. The log which people used before were replaced by various building materials which could be mass-produced by lumber mills, and log houses took on a different appearance. Subsequently Log houses became strongly related to North American identity. Log houses are usually constructed in the wooded areas as a place for living and today log homes reappears in a form of country residences, mountain cabins or garden buildings. A lot of older villages in Scandinavia have been built solely out of log homes, which have been decorated by wood cuttings. Today the construction of modern log homes as leisure homes is common and well-developed industry in Finland and Sweden.
Many of today's log houses are prefabricated. A prefabricated modular house is a house built from wooden panels which are made in the factory and assembled on the site of the construction. The construction of the modular house consists of a wooden frame, panels, and insulation materials. So when the prefabricated log house arrives on-site to be erected, everything fit together perfectly. It is dramatically important when you are building a wooden home or any wooden structure that is to last for years because the gaps let in the rain and wind. Wooden structures are usually very durable, strong, and beautiful. They are particularly suited to rural settings, summer houses, and to add more buildings to your property. They can also be used for pool houses, garden offices, garages, stables, and much more.
Scandinavian countries such as Norway and Sweden brought the culture of log houses and made them widespread across the ocean. From east to west, the log buildings appeared across the countries as the skills were handed from generation to generation. Although the history of log houses begun in Scandinavia, they became widely used in many countries and it today a lot of builders build summer houses from log to achieve a rustic effect. Today modern log cabins have a lot of advantages as they are comfortable, easy to build and there is no need for an additional heating system. Also timber houses is of long-lasting qualities - they can be used for more than 200 years while the process of looking after it is more simple than of a brick house.
