What makes a log home green?
A ‘green’ home means the majority materials used for construction are of a renewable or recycled nature. Materials are non-toxic & healthy indoor air quality is the result. When those with severe allergies move into a home built with green material, they can be assured to comfortable at home.
Wood, in general, is the only major construction material that is renewable, meaning the material is able to regenerate itself.
Properly harvested timber can also be considered of a recycled nature. Trees are a living species & have a certain life expectancy attached. Harvesting mature timber allows the tree to be used & recycled, making way for new growth. We, at Kealey & Tackaberry Log Homes, believe it is important not to harvest any young growth timber. All logs are mature before they are harvested, meaning they are at or near life expectancy.
What other green materials go into your homes?
There are numerous ‘green’ materials available for all aspects of any home. Materials can be purchased from us or stores such as The Healthiest Home.
