The house looks so sturdy and strong, and it's design is really beautiful too, making it the perfect full time home or part time cabin to retreat to! There are so many great cabin designs out there, and this is definitely one of them!
The cabin, as it's name would imply, is made out of Spruce Whitewood, known as Picea abies. This soft wood is wonderful for building and most spruces, pines and cedars make excellent building materials. The reason they choose certain wood for logs over others, is because they have less knots and twists and curves, than other wood does. A wood like walnut would not fair too well, it is very knotty and has too many curves in it's trunk to be made into the uniformly straight logs we see in log homes.
