Over the last several years, there’s been a surge in sustainable (or “green”) living— and rightfully so. Living more sustainably is not only good for the planet, but it’s also better for the health and well being of us humans, too. And thanks to recent changes in modern construction technology, it’s possible for home builders and homeowners to be more eco-friendly than ever. If you are looking to build a new home, and have not previously considered sustainable log and timber housing, it might be worth giving some thought. Here are 3 big reasons why:
1. Timberhaven materials come from renewable resources.
When it comes to sustainability, the first step is the use of renewable resources. Since Timberhaven’s log and timber homes are primarily made from trees, they are the epitome of sustainability and eco-friendliness! Furthermore, homes made from renewable resources will improve the quality of your indoor air, providing a healthier living environment.
2. Timberhaven log and timber homes are built to last.
In addition to being environmentally-friendly, our log and timber homes are incredibly durable because they are made from quality materials. In order for a home to be truly sustainable, it needs to be built to withstand whatever comes its way without needing extreme renovations that could waste resources or create greenhouse gas emissions. When you buy a log and timber kit from Timberhaven, you won’t have to worry about costly maintenance and repairs for many years to come.
3. Timberhaven homes produce zero waste.
Even when materials don’t quite meet our high-quality specifications, they don’t get wasted. Instead, that material is cut down into smaller pieces that can be utilized elsewhere. This includes additional home materials such as siding corners, trim, and railing spindles to pine shavings and sawdust that can be used by local farmers for their animals. All materials that pass through our facilities have a purpose. If that isn’t environmentally-conscious, what is?
