Living in a log house reduces stress
According to the Human Research Institute of Health Technology and Prevention Research, solid wood structures lower heart rates and reduce stress like walking in the woods. Solid wood has excellent acoustic properties, absorbing sounds and creating a calming atmosphere.
According to long traditions, a log home’s breathable wall structure also has a positive influence on various allergy and skin problems.
In contrast to other building materials, wood "breathes." This means that it is open for diffusion in both directions, because billions of tiny cells ensure there is an on-going renewal of the air molecules in interior rooms.
Thanks to their ability to breathe, massive logs regulate the humidity of indoor air and keep it within the range considered optimal for healthy living. This has been proven by recent scientific studies.
The electrostatic properties of wood mean that it does not get charged with static electricity which causes microscopic dust particles to be whirled around in the rooms. This is appreciated particularly by people suffering from allergies.
Wood is a warm material that creates a comfortable atmosphere without any special effects.
