Log homes offer a beautiful, unique way of living. Based on how homes hundreds of years ago were constructed throughout the United States, many improvements have been made to offer a truly different take on the interior and exterior of a modern home. With the beauty and craftsmanship of a log home, such a location does require slightly different home care. After all, by ditching many of the metals, plastics and other modern fabrication elements, wood needs a different kind of attention. So, for anyone considering the purchase of a log home, cabin, cottage or anything else of the sorts, understanding how to care for such a property is important.
