Log homes and cabins are a timeless classic when it comes to residential building. Check out the beautiful Chalet Log Home, from Hochstetler Quality Log Homes. Log cabins and homes are certainly nothing new, but they are very popular in this day and age and have been for centuries. The Swedish brought the concept of log building over from Europe, since that is how they would build their homes over there. In North America, they found there was also an abundance of trees, so they did the natural thing, and went with what they knew how to build. Even the Aboriginal people, some of the tribes build long houses made out of logs for their homes and community buildings. Using what comes from the Earth in a respectful way is a great way to live in harmony with all of creation.
This lovely Chalet Log Home, is a perfect example of the beauty of log homes and getting them built from a log kit, that can make the whole process a lot smoother and easier.
