What is a Hybrid Log Home?
The hybrid log and timber homes that we build are not solid log and timber homes. Solid log and timber homes are dependent on the r-value of the wood they are constructed from. The walls and roof systems of our homes are conventional construction, which allows us to incorporate modern HVAC, plumbing, electrical systems and insulation packages with ease, while in turn making our homes extremely energy efficient. The conventionally framed core also grants the ability to incorporate a wide variety of materials for wall finishes. Ultimately it allows a client to have a mixed material home without the cost and maintenance issues that are problematic with solid log and timber construction. Interior wall finishes such as drywall and tile can be used to add interest and functionality to a room without the need for specialized wall systems that are required for solid log and timber construction. EIFS, metal, stone composite, and other sidings can coexist with log walls, bringing the visual appeal of mixed materials to the forefront.
