Log homes are awesome and have many perks for those who live in them. Other than being beautiful, log homes actually have positive health benefits for those who live in them! What can a log home do for you? Here are a few of the cool “side effects” of living in a log home: Better indoor air quality: solid wood walls bind and release moisture naturally, which maintains the moisture levels in the home at a level that improves the air quality inside the home. This is great for people with allergies or asthma, because this means that they will experience fewer symptoms when in a log home. Psychological benefits: Wood is an aesthetically pleasing and calming material when used in a home. According to research, this means that it has a pretty positive psychological effect on those who live in wood homes. You will see more natural wood being used in the construction of day care centers and children’s hospitals, because wood is seen as a great material for kids, giving them the best possible growth environment. Full control: With a log home, you have more temperature and humidity control, since the wood that your home is made of is completely solid. This helps regulate air quality, leading to better overall indoor air quality and purity as stated above. There are many great benefits to building a log home, but you can’t do it alone!
