The Log Home Advantage

Trees are a renewable resource, giving log homes and log cabins the green stamp of approval. When a home is made from solid logs, you are effectively taking the carbon contained in those logs out of environmental circulation over the entire life of the home. Moreover, Timberhaven Log Homes purchases logs from forests certified as sustainable. Besides the environment, your custom log home is sustainable too. Timberhaven Log Homes offers custom log home packages that last, using the best quality logs available, kiln-dried to add to the longevity of your log home. Timberhaven log homes are sturdy, durable homes that can be passed down for generations.

 

Not Too Hot – Not Too Cold

When looking at log homes and their efficiency, it is important to take into account Thermal Mass, a natural property in the logs that helps keep the inside temperature of log homes and log cabins comfortable in all seasons. Log walls collect and store energy and then radiate it back into the home. The National Bureau of Standards conducted testing on the energy efficiency of log homes in comparison to wood frame homes. The results of the study showed the overall energy efficiency is greater in a log home than a framed home. In the spring, over a three-week period, the study showed that the log home used 46% less heating energy than a wood frame home. During an 11-week period in the summer, the log home used 24% less energy to maintain a cool temperature than the wood frame home. In the winter months it used the same amount of energy to heat the log home as the wood frame home. So what does this mean for you? You will have less expense to maintain the perfect temperature for living. There is nothing like being warm and cozy in the winter and cool as a cucumber in the summer!

Picture Perfect In More Ways Than One

It is hard to surpass the natural beauty of a well built log home or log cabin. Log homes and log cabins complement almost any setting adding to the beauty and maintaining the natural landscape. Your Timberhaven Log Home will be picture perfect just the way you imagined it could be. Hanging a picture in a home will be much easier too! You will no longer need a stud finder or drill. Homeowners say the simplicity of hanging a picture is just one of the wonderful benefits of living in a custom log home.

Did You Hear That?

Log homes and log cabins are natural sound insulators. Not only does the mass of the log prevent sound from passing through, but the texture created by the log walls rippled contour deflects sound. This helps add to the peaceful environment that comes naturally with a custom log home.

In Case of Fire

Log homes and log cabins built with solid log walls are extremely slow to spread fire compared to wood frame walls. Since there are no air pockets or cavities in the walls, a fire is usually a surface burn. Typically contents of the home will spread the fire much faster than the walls.
