You can also do things to help keep your energy bills down, while also helping the environment. Passive Solar-Log House Design. Passive solar cabin building design uses the windows, walls, and floors to help collect, store, and to distribute the solar energy in the log house in the form of heat in the winter, and to reject the heat from the sun in the summer. You want to make sure to lay out your cabin building so that the largest amount of windows faces south. This will to maximize the sunlight intake in both the autumn and winter months. Planting trees on the east and the west sides of your log house can help to reduce cooling loads, and shrubbery and hedges can be useful for helping to block cold winter winds, or for channeling the warm summer breezes into your cabin building.
There are several ways things you can do to help make your cabin building and log house more eco-friendly. Water Reclamation. You might consider installing a water reclamation system in your log house. Water reclamation can be as simple as placing a rain barrel at the end of your rain gutters to help provide you with water for your watering your outdoor vegetable and flower gardens. Radiant Heating. Installing radiant floor heating system which is a system of pipes that are underneath the flooring which transfers hot water, or solar water heaters, will help to reduce heating and hot water costs. Use reclaimed wood products. Consider the interior finishes in your cabin building with things such as kitchen cabinetry, the modings and doors which can be purchased from manufacturers and craftsmen who specialize in using reclaimed wood. Using reclaimed wooden products is good for the environment and can also give your cabin building a unique look and personality all its own.
