Did you know that log homes are healthy to live in? Not only do log homes use natural materials that are renewable and better for the environment, but living in a log home is known to have better indoor air quality that is important for healthy living. Many of us spend more than 90 percent of our life indoors. That's a lot. Research shows that Kontio log home and log cabins have an exceptionally high-quality indoor air. That is because logs create a healthy and safe microclimate in a building because they efficiently balance both the moisture and the heat that fluctuates in room air. The Arctic Pine naturally absorbs moisture when the air is too humid, and then releases moisture when the air humidity goes below a good level. Essentially breathing, and allowing you to breathe better. Because the logs breathe that ensure that the air humidity inside your home stays at the optimal range for human health. Another reason we love log homes so much.
