If a wood cabin or log house is something you’ve always dreamed, there are several ways you can go about achieving this. To start, you will need to plan out the log house details to include a budget, wood cabin site and cabin building design. Whether you choose to build the wood cabin yourself, buy a cabin building kit or hire contractors will depend on several factors. Building a wood cabin yourself will be one of the biggest projects you will take on, but is sure also to be one of the most gratifying once the cabin building is complete.
Once you have your wood cabin site, you’ll need to select your logs and transport the logs to your cabin building site. The type of logs that you use will depend upon what is available locally, your personal preferences and your log house budget. Many people choose the wood that they can get cheap and local to save on transportation. This is a good idea; you can talk to local loggers, wood mills, and clearing companies and foresters to find out what tree species are plentiful in your area, and choose the log species that suits your log house design.
Each tree species will have pros and cons in regards to its strength, insulation value, and rot resistance so you’ll want to remember to compare those points when choosing your tree species for your cabin building. If you want to save a little bit of money and be kind to the environment, you can also consider cabin building with standing dead trees. Standing dead trees make great cabin building logs, and there is very little commercial demand for it, so this type of wood is often free or very inexpensive. Cabin building with standing dead timber will save you plenty of money, save the trees from being wasted, and save a living tree from being chopped down for your wood cabin.
