The Best of Both Worlds
Getting back to nature has never been so “smart.”
Like it or not, we live in a techbased society. So much so that you’d swear today’s youth were born with computer chips in their brains and the latest smart phones surgically attached to their hands. For better or for worse (and with the push of a “post” button), the world can know anything and everything about you, from your most deeply held beliefs to what you ate for breakfast. Measured thinking, not to mention privacy, seems to be a thing of the past.
Perhaps it’s this preoccupation with technology and automation permeating our lives that’s fueling our desire to get in touch with what’s real. To reconnect with nature. To create a haven where privacy still reigns supreme. To live in a log home.
There is no other type of housing that is more attune to the intense desire to live a more natural life. Not only are you engulfed in gorgeous wood in a log home, the sites themselves tend to be far removed from the beaten path. Whether it’s nestled deep within a thick forest, landed along a lakeshore or perched on a majestic mountain site, a log home is in total harmony with its surroundings. Its sturdy walls are as safe and welcoming as a mother’s embrace. It’s not simply where you live; it’s a dream fulfilled.
Even so, log homes are no strangers to technology, and actually that’s a good thing. Whether it’s for work or play, most of us need to be connected to some degree, and log homes can accommodate that need with ease.
In fact, the log home industry, itself, has benefitted from science and technology. Log homes are more structurally sophisticated and energy efficient than ever before. From precision milling equipment to advances in stains, sealants and chinking, the past few decades have brought about a turn in the log home construction universe that has made the dream of owning one of these beauties more attainable to more people.
The guide you’re holding in your hands is devoted to helping you do just that.
No other type of house is more attune to living a natural lifestyle than a log home is.
