The Different Log Cabin Styles
One of the beauties of log cabins is that there are no two cabins that are alike. As long as you are custom building, you can rest assured that your cabin is going to be unique, something that is just yours! There are different designs, finishes and styles of log cabins for sale all around North Carolina, some of these are as follows;
Handcrafted Log Cabins
Handcrafted logs tend to give your cabin a more organic feel. They are cut and shaped purposely to stack perfectly on top of one another and form a tight seal in the walls of your cabin. They can be shaped into rectangular profiles with flat exterior and interior faces in order to give you a more historic look if that’s what you’re after. Since handcrafted log cabins are larger, they often will come with a higher price tag. Our company, Log Home Builders, offers the highest quality of handcrafted cabins.
Milled Log Cabins
Milled logs are precisely cut into similar sizes and appearances. They can either be fully rounded or squared on the ends. The beauty of milled logs is that they can be used to create super-insulated exterior walls. Dimensional log siding has been used by log building companies for a long time to give log cabins the best possible natural insulation. With that added insulation comes lowered energy costs and more long term savings! Log sliding also adds color and durable material to the milled wood, making it very low maintenance overall. You really can’t miss the distinctive look that a milled wood cabin gives.
Timber Framed Cabins
Timber frames are best known for giving cabins an amazing flair of internal beauty. They also allow for wide-open spaces inside your home, massive rooms that you can host people in or do anything you like. These frames are built by utilizing hand-carved joinery which is interlocked with wooden pegs. The precision required for such methods to work is extreme, so you can rest assured that the utmost care was given in the construction of yours. The timber frames can be enclosed in the frame of exterior walls. Furthermore, these frames have structural insulated panels and SIPs which makes them uniquely weather resistant. They wrap the frame in an envelope of insulation, saving you even more money on your home and regular costs.
Conventional studs are framed onto stick-built cabin walls. Since stud-framed construction uses widely available materials, many cabins have the stud-framed cabin design. The styles usually associated are shabby chic, farmhouse, mountain or traditional. The conventional style of cabin building has a range of prices depending on the region, finishes and complexity of your building plan.
The Modular Squad Cabins
This is the most popular and widely-loved style of cabin building. It involves shipping built in sections/modules of the cabin in a company’s indoor facility to the construction site. The modules are then placed on a permanent foundation. Modular homes are available in all shapes, sizes and styles. Such homes greatly minimize waste and give you a product you know you can rely on. Furthermore, modular cabins surpass the energy-efficiency standards. Modular cabins are perfect for remote sites. Log Home Builders provides the best modular log cabins available in North Carolina.
