These Cabins Are Earth Friendly, Sustainable, Well Insulated and Low-Priced

With so many people looking for ways to be more sustainable and Earth friendly, Log homes are more the way to go these days. The Green Valley 3 bed/2 Baths 1736 Sq. Ft, would be the perfect home for a small family or a couple. The wonderful thing about log homes is that they have so many benefits over conventional dry wall homes. Log homes and cabins are very sustainable, as they are made from renewable materials that come from the Earth. Most of the logs come from sustainable tree plantations, where the trees are used for their trunks, and then more are planted to grow into more trees to make logs from. This is a better way of going about this process, rather than just chopping down any tree, so that we can keep the ancient growth forests alive, with their habitats thriving.

eLog Homes is a company in the United States that has 3 different locations but ships across the nation. They have very high standards when it comes to the building materials they are supplying people with, and are always making sure that they are up to the best quality they can offer. Their log home passed a test as being the most well insulated log home on the market. You can read more about all of the specifications that make their models the most air tight on their website. They also use only the best Eastern White Pine for the materials in their prefabricated home packages, which is one of the best logs to use.

This home, the Green Valley, is a gorgeous, yet simple, log home. It features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a beautiful wrap around deck. The master bedroom is on the main floor, complete with the ensuite bathroom, and the other bedrooms are on the main level as well, with their own full bathroom too. The total square footage of the home is 1736 square feet. This log cabin is a lovely design, with the peaked roofs and the beautiful windows they have put in this one. French doors lead into the great room, and then all is open to the kitchen and dining room area. The house opens to the lovely porch on the front of the home, opening up the house to the outdoors, and creating a continuos flow with the patio. There is even a screened in part of the porch, and access to it from the master bedroom.

Log homes are not only a great and sustainable home to buy, they are also very energy efficient, since the thermal mass of the logs is so great and they are wonderful insulators, the owners of the home would use a lot less heat than in a conventional home. The logs also act as air filters, filtering out some of the bad toxins in the air, which conventional homes don't do. The other wonderful thing is you don't have to paint, so you're not breathing in all of the chemicals from that either. eLog Homes has very many to choose from and look through for ideas and inspiration.
