Healthy living from generation to generation
Honkamajat log houses are built of close-grained pinewood, which has grown in northern conditions. Log houses make for easy breathing and healthy living. The massive structure of logs balances variation in temperature and humidity, making a log house comfortably cool in hot environments and cozily warm in a cold climate. A massive log structure is also fire resistant.
Logs have been used in construction for thousands of years in northern Europe. In Finland, for example, the oldest existing log buildings date back hundreds of years. This testifies to the durability of wood and to its beautiful aging. As long as the log material is taken care of, the home will endure from generation to generation, and the logs used for walls can be re-used several times.
