Always in fashion. Log homes today continue over 400 years of tradition in look & style.

Environmentally friendly. There is much less use of prefabricated products in log homes as compared to conventional homes.

Natural insulation. Air cells in the wood fibre provide one of the best forms of insulation from either heat or cold. Log homes are very cool in summer and very warm in winter.
