About Early Log Structures
Because of their naturally rustic look, Montana log cabins tend to fit better into the natural land than do conventional houses.
It is reported that an extant Russian log home is approximately 1,700 years old, indicating log cabins can last many lifetimes if well-maintained!
A natural property of logs, or any wood for that matter, is its “thermal mass,” which helps a log naturally absorb and retain heat energy, ensuring interior temperatures are comfortable in both hot and cold climates.
Montana Log homes are generally built from conifers–softwoods–whose R-value of ~1.4/inch is twice that of hardwoods, about .7/inch.
Supposedly, the first log home in the US was publicly recorded in 1662 in Maryland.
