To give you an idea of how different they are just imagine spending Christmas in a log cabin . it’s the stuff that dreams are made of.
The environment is another good reason to have a cabin constructed. The material for a log cabin can be salvaged from reclaimed and salvaged timber so you don’t need to feel guilty about cutting down the forest to build your home. These cabins are bio-degradable and after many years will rot away and return to the ground from which it came. They use less toxic materials so the environmental footprints are much less than other materials. You also have the option of using solar energy to supply all your electrical and heating needs for your home.
The construction of a log cabin can be cheaper than traditional houses in some cases. Where traditional homes cost on average $115.00 per square foot, a log cabin will cost around $90.00 per square foot. This will add up to savings not only on the square footage, but also on heating costs, as cabins tend to keep you warmer and takes less to heat.
