Why It is great to Have a Log Home While it is true that having a timber frame log house bring you nearer mother nature and its rustic ambiance, there is more to it than just that. Some of these prospective owners might not even be aware that there is more to a log home than the artistic taste one gets out of it, so in order to develop in them a deeper appreciation of their choice it is important to show them in what ways there is more in a log home than in conventional construction of other materials. Most of us have the impression that brick home is the more durable construction material since termites and other wood insects are attracted to log homes. These wood boring insects do not really get attracted to large quantities of wood. And, added to that, the logs being used for log homes are air or kiln dried logs which are sent through profiling machines, and insects don’t really get attracted to these dry logs. There are timber houses still standing in Europe for 800 years now and in Russia there is a log made church that has been there for more than 1700 years. Another benefit, aside from not being attractive to termites and other boring insects, is that they are load bearing and has a locking system that is much better than brick houses, and so there are countless stories of log or timber homes being able to withstand the worst hurricanes because of this. Since the walls of a log house a load bearing, this means that the walls carry the weight of what is above them, and this is not like conventional home where posts are there to bear them, so when strong winds come they are able to withstand them because you have a very solid mass in that house. Falling trees during hurricanes are not even a threat to a log home since they cannot crash this solid mass, but only dislodge or loosen them since when they are interlocked to form a solid equilateral side, it is very hard to displace them

Of course a custom log home with 8 to 10 inches logs will cost more than a 2×4 framed home with vinyl siding. But what most people do not account, is that logs will go up faster saving labor.
