Log Home Designs

Have Fantastic Porches

Log home designs are as varied as conventional homes but have added appeal. I read recently that in excess of 25,000 log homes are built annually in the U.S., compared with about 7,000 a year 20 years ago.



I've heard that celebrities like Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates, are all or have been log home owners at one time. They too enjoy a wonderful porch!

There's no denying the popularity of log homes. There's just something about sitting on a log home porch listening to the critters!

I once sat on a log home porch in a rocker all day; didn't move except for necessities. That was one great day!

Now that you've seen some fantastic log home pictures, here's a quick guide to help you differentiate between a log home, a post and beam home, and a timber frame home.

A log home is usually built with large wooden logs stacked horizontally to form walls. The logs can be sized and shaped simplify the building process and to prevent difficulties such as settling or insulating.

A post and beam home uses large logs positioned upright to support beams. The posts and beams can be left round or squared depending on the design. The logs may be attached to each other by metal brackets or plates, bolts, screws, or mortise and tenon joinery.

A timber frame home design is a specific kind of post and beam home that uses mortise and tenon joinery and wooden pegs to hold the squared-off timbers together.
