What makes this log home plan and design stand out is the use of reclaimed wood and lumber on the exterior of the wood cabin build. It seems these days that everywhere you look you are seeing reclaimed lumber being used on houses, and pieces of unique furniture. Reclaimed lumber is simply wood that has already been processed, and that is retrieved from its original use to be used in another building projects from log cabins interiors and exteriors and more. Most reclaimed wood and lumber comes from timbers and decking that are taken from old barns, factories, and warehouses; you also may find wood from less traditional structures such as wine barrels, boxcars and coal mines. Reclaimed or antique lumber is used mainly for decoration and home building, for example for siding, cabinetry, architectural details, furniture, and flooring. Reclaimed wood has a more rustic look that is appealing in many log homes and cabins. Barns are a source that most often serves as one of the most popular sources for reclaimed wood in the United States and Canada. Those barns that were built through the early part of the 19th century were typically constructed using whatever trees were growing on or near the property. They often had a mix of pine timber, oak, chestnut, poplar and hickory. Beam sizes were often limited to what could be moved by man and horse on the property. The wood was usually hand hewn using an ax. Soon red, white, black, scarlet, willow, post, and pin oak varieties were being cut and transformed into barns as well. The use of reclaimed wood is highly appealing in tiny home and furniture design, giving a unique look.
