Benefits of Having a Log Home Choosing a timber frame log home is definitely more than just the idea of connecting with mother-nature and its rustic ambiance. Many home owners who chose log homes are not fully aware what really makes them a great home aside from their aesthetic value, so it is then important to less them see what more they have as compared to convention home constructions. Most of us have the impression that brick home is the more durable construction material since termites and other wood insects are attracted to log homes. Well, first of all, wood boring insects are not attracted to large quantities of wood. And, added to that, the logs being used for log homes are air or kiln dried logs which are sent through profiling machines, and insects don’t really get attracted to these dry logs. 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. When the walls of the house bears the weight above walls not similar to our conventional construction of letting the posts of the house bear them, you have a pretty solid mass that even a very strong wind will have a hard time to break. Beside that, when there is a hurricane and trees start falling, if they land on the load bearing walls, the solid mass would hardly crash and the worse they can do is to loosen them or dislodged them, but the logs are interlocked to form a solid equilateral side, this is very hard to displace.
