These days it seems that open concept wood cabins and home designs are more popular than ever before. With expansive kitchens that overlook common living areas throughout the wood cabin and home design. The strength of the timbers in a timber frame wood cabin allows for less load bearing walls, which naturally create an open floor plan that is free of obstructions. This type of wood cabin framing has been used for centuries, especially in older churches, because of the strength and durability of the build, along with its beauty. Wood cabins are a good choice when it comes to building waste and sustainability. That is because there is less waste in using the entire log in a timber frame wood cabin than using dimensional lumber for framing a traditional home design.

With conventional home design, the lumber is cut in the forest, hauled to a mill, then cut to size, and shipped to a distributor then to a local building supply store. And then once the wood is at the building site, it has to be cut again. Wood that is used for timber frame wood cabins goes through much less handling, which means lower costs. Once at the building site, the logs are then fit to size, with some adjustments are made with minimal waste. With a custom built wood cabin, you are getting an aesthetically appealing home; you have the option of having your framing logs being visible on both the outer or the inner walls of your wood cabin. The beauty and strength of being surrounded by perfectly placed timbers in a wood cabin give a sense of comfort and safety while adding character and a home design that is unique to every custom timber frame home.

Research has shown that living and staying in wood cabins built mostly of wood offers both physical and psychological health benefits. Using wood and sustainable building materials when constructing a timber frame log homes allow for a lower carbon footprint and lower costs to the environment. You can also recycle and use local wood; timber waste can further be recycled. This is just one of the log cabin designs you will find on the Architectural Design site.
