As well in Scandinavia, Russia as in Canada, loghouse building is a very well respected way of building cabin's, cottages and houses. We met up with a log-builder who is a very experienced builder. He explained the benefits of building with logs to us and will make us an offer, considering the specs we have given him.
Another benefit would be that we would be building eco-friendly for many reasons.
The looks, the feel and the ecological and economical benefits of a log house would make the log-built cottage a good option to choose from.
