Log Cabin Homes
Heartwood flat packed log home kits form part of a healthy lifestyle
The development of heartwood glulam logs has enabled many improvements in the manufacturing and construction of log cabin houses throughout the world, such as the preventing cracking and distortion of the timber and almost eliminated the settling of self build log house kits , enabling precision manufacturing techniques to be used.
One of the best features of a log houses is the breath ability, this enables the timber to breath in and out keeping the air in your log home fresh, helping to maintain a more constant temperature, thus helping to save on heating costs.
The wood used in a Barretts log cabin lodge works as a heat insulator and therefore the air in a log house is cleaner and easier to breathe, while helping to prevent the spread of harmful microorganisms.
The absence of static electricity within log cabin homes also prevents the formation of dust. Allergy sufferers benefit from the clean indoor air because log houses are an excellent alternative to the dusty bricks and mortar houses we are so addicted to.
The heating costs in a log house is reduced, due to the thermal ability of the wood to conserve heat and then give it back into the house in a similar way that a storage heater works.
A log house is made up of 95% renewable materials, which is more than the conventional house building industry can claim.
All the wood that goes into a log house factory is used, all the off-cuts are utilized and recycled, either to keep the factory warm during the winter or manufactured into heating fuel for sale or ground down to provide ecologically friendly insulation material for the log houses.

Log homes are the way forward for the building industry, governments and building control keep tinkering with insulation levels, advising people in traditional houses to seal all the cracks and crannies, before long most of these houses are going to suffer from damp because of the lack of air movement, whereas a log home controls this automatically and naturally while conserving heating costs, it s a no brainer, it s a win-win situation all the way!
