In this article we list main properties of a log home...

Many people can agree with the statement that log homes are attractive and beautiful. In some regions of the World log homes were built for thousands years. Many centuries people mastered their skills to construct log homes as a result there are many log building techniques exist (to learn more about log homes manufacturing techniques follow this link).

 Before to list log home properties, let's understand what people mean saying "log". The wooden log is a roundish-profile product made of tree trunk. Although according to handcrafting log home builders, log is debarked and peeled trunk of tree, otherwise if a tree trunk is processed or milled (by machines) it becomes a dowel (if it's rounded) or a timber (if it's squared).  

 There are few other types of homes exist on the market which may look like log homes but the are not log homes. These are timber homes and "post and beam" homes. The main difference of timber home and log home is a type of profile of a "log" used in walls. And the "post and beam" homes do not have walls made of logs. Post-and-beam construction uses logs or timber to build a skeleton of the home. Walls are "mounted" inside of the log skeleton.
