We are all now more aware of the environmental issues facing our planet and our log cabins are much more environmentally friendly than a standard home. Staying in a log cabin is a brilliant way to lesson your environmental impact.
Our log cabins are made from elements that are naturally available and do not include synthetic material like plastic, chemicals or any other harmful materials that can be found in standard housing. Our log cabins are made from wooden logs that are of high quality and maintain a natural environment. The wooden logs used for building our log cabins are from trees that are already dead but still have good quality wood. This high quality wood allows the walls of the cabins to breath in a natural manner and preserves freshness and quality of air.
Wood makes for a fantastic ‘green’ home for those who enjoy living in nature. Wood products require less energy to manufacture than standard housing and have the lowest impacts on water and air quality.
The wooden structures of our log cabins stores carbons and regulates humidity. This naturally allows for better air flow. The result of this is that log cabins are healthier to live in.
Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced with the construction of a log cabin.
Nearly 10% of global CO² emissions come from the production of concrete. So when a ton od concrete is produced so to is a ton of CO² produced.
Timber is a material that can naturally hold heat, which means you will be spending less on heating bills. Heat does not pass through the logs and our cabins act like a thermal battery to store heat during the day and release energy in the evening, creating an energy efficient home. The wooden walls act as a natural insulation thereby eliminating any artificial means of heating or cooling. The temperature remains evenly balanced all year round making for very pleasant living.
