Simple but Different Log Cabin with a Few Surprises

A simple but different log cabin, this lovely home is a delight to behold. Set in a stunning location, the incredible outdoors set a spectacular background for this little beauty. Rolling hills, lush green lawn. Tall expansive evergreens, a beautiful rock retaining wall. The vine wrapped arbor that shades the house and provides a lovely spot for an outdoor meal. Flower pots scattered here and there adding a splash of color. Simple yet thoughtful touches such as the exterior wreath or the Adirondack chairs facing out to the beauty beyond. A glowing interior shines and beckons through the large, expansive windows, drawing one inside. The stack of firewood by the door, ready to keep the inhabitants warm and cozy one a cool night. Beautiful. Peaceful. Serene. There is something about log homes that cause us to slow down, take a deep breath and relax. They are inviting and comforting.

You can view this simple but different log cabin built by architecture Nick Noyes of San Fransisco. Nick used environmentally sensitive and sustainable methods in the building and design of this log cabin. Using passive solar elements such as cross ventilation, significant thermal mass, appropriate overhangs around the exterior, and solar assisted radiant heating, he helped reduce this home's carbon footprint. Significant thermal mass is when builders use materials that are resistant to temperature changes. These same materials absorb the suns energy and heat and in turn slowly releases it, providing a slow even heat to the home. This method combined with strategically placed windows and doors that utilize air flow currents to cool the home, as well a,s well placed overhangs, helps to significantly and efficiently regulate the home's temperature throughout the day and night, in every season. This particular method of heating and cooling is perfect in areas where there is a large swing between day time and night time temperatures.
