Take a look inside the Sequoia, just one of the log cabin options available from Michigan Log and Timber. With its front covered porch and covered side patio, this log home is perfect for relaxing outdoors. Inside you will find a beautifully finished log cabin with wood throughout, and a peaked roof in the living area for a spacious look and feel. The Sequoia log home has three bedrooms, two downstairs on the main floor, and the main bedroom upstairs.
Something you often hear about when it comes to homes is the R-Value which measures the performance of an insulated wall. When it comes to log homes since a log wall is a solid mass (there is no insulated space), the R-Value does not apply correctly. The log home is measured by something known as thermal mass. The studies that have been done on the differences between insulated walls versus solid log walls point out that a solid log wall is superior based on the average costs for heating and cooling. Thermal mass means that the logs can absorb heat, which helps to keep the log house cool in the summer and then to store that same heat in the winter and gradually release it at night, warming the log house.
