The proportion of single-family homes constructed from logs has grown steadily in recent years

Log construction has held its ground in single-family home construction. The proportion of single-family homes constructed from logs has grown steadily in recent years. In 2017, already one in five single-family homes was constructed from logs according to the January 2018 market review by Rakennustutkimus RTS Oy.

The advantages of log construction include a good and clean indoor air quality. Log is a breathing material that balances air humidity and binds harmful microbes floating in the air. A log home is great choice also for an allergic person.

A log building also blends well into an urban area due to its modern architecture and new innovations. The modern narrow seam log and sheered corner joint featured in the Kuusamo Log Homes selection are popular solutions for urban living.
