What this means is that the wood used in a log home can store and hold the transfer of heat. This is also a property of stone and metal. So this feature makes logs very energy efficient. Wood also has a natural insulating ability that makes log homes, even more, efficient. So the thermal mass of a log allows it to absorb heat during the warmest part of the day and then return it to the log home during the cooler night.

When it comes to log home designs and styles, there is a wide variety to choose from, to include handcrafted log homes and log cabins, to milled log homes, to hewn logs and sawn log homes. Handcrafted log homes are typically made from logs that have been hand peeled and look pretty much unchanged from what they looked like as trees. Milled (also called machine-profiled) are log homes that are built with logs that have been run through a manufacturing process which converts them into timbers which are consistent in size and appearance. Hewn log homes use logs that have been hewn by an ax to an oval, hexagonal, octagonal or rectangular section. Sawn Log homes are logs that are sawn to a standard width, but with their original heights. Handcrafted log houses have been built for centuries in Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia. Handcrafted log homes were typically built using only an axe and a knife. The Scandinavian settlers of New Sweden brought along with them the craft of handcrafting log homes to North America in the early 18th century, where it was quickly adopted by other colonists and Native Americans.
