Log homes have been constructed since around the 1600's when the early Europeans discovered the vast forest on their own land in America.  Through the years, Log Home building became somewhat of an art form, using the perfect logs to create a tight seal. 

Today, there are different types of Long Homes ranging from Handcrafted to Milled.  Milled Log Homes are shaped to fit perfectly and insure that there are no gaps.  All Log Homes should be sealed to avoid shrinkage and water damage.  Complete information on building a Log Home can be found by the Log Homes Council , also a member of the National Association of Home Builders

Log Homes today are more energy efficient than ever.  Logs can retain heat from the sun during the day and release it at night when the temperatures drop.  Cedar and other preferred seasoned woods for building log homes work as natural insulators.  Log Homes can be built with energy efficient items such as passive solar design features for maximum efficiency.  Complete information on Log Homes and energy savings: http://www.energysavers.gov

Another common Log Home Design that is growing in popularity is the Half-Log design.  This design is a Log siding using half the log.  Half-Log siding can be used to indoors and outdoors.  Log Siding is a great way to update your home for a more rustic appeal or if you're a homeowner that prefers a stick built home, but loves the look of Log.

There are many great Log Homes in Dahlonega and Dawsonville Georgia varying in price and style.   For more information, contact me for a complete list of Log Homes and Cabins in the area.
