Watch This Amazing Time Lapse of a Log Home Being Built
If you are interested in watching some log house construction, then for sure take a few moments to watch This Amazing Time Lapse of a Log Home Being Built. Log houses are just amazing in all regards. They are built with some of the finest materials known to man kind, and they are incredibly durable and also beautiful at the same time. Many people purchase or building log homes because of the longevity they can offer as well as the sustainability they offer as well. Log homes can stand for hundreds of years, in fact there are some log houses and churches that have been standing for over 500 years in Sweden. Isn't that incredible? Most conventionally built houses built with stick framing last maybe a hundred or two hundred years if they are kept properly and maintained regularly. The log homes that are built these days are usually treated to be resistant to mold and bugs, but they still have to be maintained and refinished every few years. Log houses are also quite sustainable because the logs that are used in the log house construction process are all sustainably farmed. Trees that are used for their wood are farmed in sustainable tree plantations. The use of the trees is strictly monitored and no tree or part of a tree goes to waste. Since trees are able to be grown again and again, they are a very practical renewable resource for making houses, furniture and other goods.
Yellowstone Log Homes shares this great log home building video with us to show off the log house construction process of one of their log home models.

It is situated in the middle of a clearing in the forest, with trees and native plants encircling it. What a gorgeous site to build on.
