The nice thing about purchasing a log home is you know it is built using natural materials. A home that is built with natural materials is better for both you and the environment. Building green from both a design aspect to the log home construction is the right thing to do, environmentally, economically and socially. The use of wood in a log home helps to create structures that are ecologically sound, more energy efficient, and aesthetically pleasing and durable. Wood that comes from well-managed forests is an excellent environmental choice. Log home builders and home buyers from across the world are realizing that a log home build is healthier, more comfortable, and has lower energy consumption, and overall performance. A wood structure also reduces the impact of buildings on human health and the environment. Using wood and logs is a natural and easy way to make a difference for the environment. The nice thing about wood is that it reduces greenhouse gasses and, in turn, stores carbons. A forest that is both healthy and sustainable is a readily available solution to climate change. Did you know that an on average, an acre of healthy growing tree can absorb approximately three tons of carbon dioxide from the air and release close to two tons of oxygen? This is good news for us and the environment. You can feel good about living in and purchasing a log home or log cabin. Especially when we hear so much about climate change and global warming, it's important to make environmentally conscious decisions.
