It wasn't too long ago that many European settlers to the United States, had no idea what a log cabin was, let alone how to build one from scratch. In certain areas, people didn't know how to build a log cabin until another European settler from another region of Europe, who had experience building log homes, came along and showed them how it was done. So even though log home building has been an ancient practice for some groups of people, for others, it was something that they just started to learn about in the 1600s. It is said that the Swedish people were the first to assist other settlers in the building of log structures. Native people of America, had also used these log home building practices in building their long houses and also many have had some influence over how people built their homes.

Each and every log is cut perfectly to size, in accordance to the way that they will be stacked. So the one on top, generally has a groove in it to fit perfectly onto the one on the bottom, and then they are also grooved at the ends so that the ends can fit perfectly together like a jigsaw puzzle. This is done so that there are no spaces left for air to get in and so that the logs are the tightest fit they can possibly be. Log homes can keep in a lot of heat in the winter for this reason, and also due to the logs themselves having such a high thermal mass. They are actually naturally made with their own special insulation built right in. Check out more of these beautiful log homes and see what you think.
