Asheville Log CabinIt can’t be denied that a log home is just a little different from other homes styles. There’s no comparing a traditional log-constructed house with a brick-front or wood-paneled siding house. The logs present a natural material in a very natural setting in the NC mountains. With a log cabin you can personalize the style and take an already unique structure even further toward your particular taste. It’s also a style that doesn’t lose its charm. Log cabins were one of the early home styles, and they continue to be a timeless choice for homebuilders and buyers.

Log homes present a very practical advantage as well. Logs have a tremendous insulation property. As a matter of fact, log homes generally require less energy for temperature maintenance than do other style homes. That efficiency can begin very early in the process as well. Some use the logs from the land they are building on, meaning less deforestation of other land.
