Log construction has maintained its role in detached house construction. In recent years, log-built detached houses have consistently increased their percentage year after year.

In 2017, already every fifth detached house was built with logs, indicates Rakennustutkimus RTS Oy’s market overview from January 2018.

The advantages of log construction include, for example, good and clean indoor air quality. Log is a breathing material, which balances the humidity or the air and combines harmful microbes in the air. A log home is an excellent choice for people who suffer from allergies.

As a result of its modern architecture and new innovations, a log building also blends in well in urban areas. The modern narrow-seamed log and sheered corner joint found in Kuusamo Log Houses’ selection are popular solutions for urban housing. See our corner options here.
