More people than ever are seeking out the simple life by building a log home. For many, there’s just something irresistibly appealing about living a more pared-down lifestyle in our distraction-filled world.
Log homes connect us to our past and help remind us of what matters. But log cabin living doesn’t have to mean giving up all the things you love. In fact, modern log homes feature many of the same amenities you find in traditional homes—from luxury kitchens to spa-inspired bathrooms.
Once you’ve experienced log cabin living, though, you might just find that material things lose some of their luster. When nature is right outside your door, getting the latest gadget just doesn’t seem as important.
Imagine leaving the trappings of the city behind—the traffic, the noise, the 9-to-5 monotony. Picture life in a place where your kids can run free and spend their weekends exploring the woods or splashing around the lake.
If leaving the city behind isn’t possible, you can still get the benefits of log home living with weekend trips to a vacation home or tiny cabin.
The open-concept layout of most log homes is designed to facilitate connection with nature—and each other. It’s why so many people dream of having a log home for entertaining and hosting overnight guests.
Get-togethers are just more fun in a cozy log home. But could this lifestyle actually have health benefits, and are log cabins worth it? We think so. Check out the infographic below to learn how living in a log cabin can benefit your family’s health.
