Guide to Building a Log Home and Its Benefits Choosing a timber frame log home is definitely more than just the idea of connecting with mother-nature and its rustic ambiance. There is much more than just the artistic taste one gets that even well-meaning prospective owners might not be aware of, and the reason why it is important to spell out in order to develop in them a more thorough appreciation of this choice – when compared to the conventional construction of either stick or brick homes. Since bricks are not attacked by termites and other insects who seek after wood, then people have the impression that it is the most durable construction material to use. Well, first of all, wood boring insects are not attracted to large quantities of wood. Other than that, air-or kiln-dried logs sent through profiling machines are dry logs that these insects are not attracted to. Think about timber homes still standing in Europe for the last 800 years, or the one-log constructed church in Russia reported to be still standing for more than 1,700 years. Other than boring insect problem, the log and timber homes industry has countless stories of these homes successfully weathering the worst hurricanes since they are similarly constructed with a brick home which are load-bearing,and a locking system that is just marvelously better. With log homes, the walls of the house bear the weight above them and it is not like conventional construction where posts bear the load, and with this you have a really solid mass that strong winds will have a hard time to break. Other than that, during hurricanes, falling trees that land on this load bearing walls would hardly crash this solid mass other than knocking them loose or dislodging them, but when they are interlocked to form a solid equilateral side, it is hard to displace them.

Of course a custom log home with 8 to 10 inches logs will cost more than a 2×4 framed home with vinyl siding. But what most people do not account, is that logs will go up faster saving labor. Think how much carpentry is involve in constructing a conventional home, think what other material is necessary to succeed in achieving them compared to simply filing them up one-by-one.
