Energy Efficient Log Cabins
Log cabin and home industry information
- Solid log walls – Log homes are highly energy efficient, far exceeding the R-Factor performance that is typically used to measure stick-built homes under residential building codes.
- Studies by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Association of Home Builders Research Center have demonstrated the superiority of solid logs walls for energy efficiency. An NAHB study showed that a 6” thick log wall is 7% MORE energy efficient than a 2×6 framed wall with R-19 insulation.
