 The Beauty and Splendor of Log Homes

Since the dawn of time when the prehistoric man left the shelter of caves or earthen dugouts to construct huts of sod or mounds of earth, common wall materials were a wood windfall, intertwined saplings and branches coated in the mud with thatched roofs.

The desire to have structures made from towering timber, sentinels of the forest became every man’s dream. With the invention of chopping and cutting tools in more permanent agricultural societies, the home constructed of roughly hewn logs became a new standard, the haven of luxury and comfort from the elements.

Within our deepest primordial memories, the comfort and alluring appeal of hog homes are perhaps one of most and profound of the deepest feelings of satisfaction connecting us to the richness of nature and living things.

The log home is strong and capable of surviving for centuries, well beyond the life cycle of ‘modern’ building materials. The oldest log home in North America is the C. A. Nothnagle Log House, built circa 1638 by Finnish or Swedish settlers located in Gibbstown, New Jersey.

To preserve and maintain your log home’s charm or peace of mind when acquiring one, call RELIANCE INSPECTION.
