There are plenty of reasons to live and stay in a wood cabin. Many people choose wood cabins as a green building and for off-grid living. With natural resources being depleted at a quick rate for human use, it is one of the leading to environmental problems and disturbing the natural ecological balance. So wood cabins are a good choice and the best option when it comes to the environment. Even if you were to buy timber and logs from a sustainability certified source, you have still reduced your carbon footprint by a huge amount when compared to using traditional building materials such as mortar, cement, and plaster. Building a cabin building sustainably is something that is, of upmost importance to a lot of people and is the right thing to do. Wood is one of the most sustainable materials there is, and if you buy from a sustainable source, more trees will be planted for each one that is harvested. Logs are a completely renewable resource, and once the wood cabin is no longer viable to restore, the wood has many more uses such as use for fuel or wood chips. The cabin building process typically uses much less energy than that of a conventional home build; wood cabins can also be built in a shorter time-span than the standard home design which helps to reduce your carbon footprint exponentially.
Wood cabins are energy-efficient and you can, therefore, expect a decrease in your utility bills. Logs used in wood cabins are natural insulators, and therefore you will have the benefit of staying warmer in the winter and keeping cooler in the summer, depending on the thickness and type of the logs that are used. You can build a wood cabin to be 15 to 20 percent more energy efficient than a conventional home design. The initial cost of logs is expensive when compared to bricks and mortar, but the benefit is that once the logs are in place, you are done, they form the interior and the exterior of your cabin building. Compare this to the laborious way of constructing the walls of standard home design, the bricks and mortar, insulation and plastering which comparatively will cost you more.
