Throughout history, log cabins have symbolically represented humble origins. In fact, seven U.S. presidents were born in log cabins. Those presidents, along with several other political figures, used the symbol of a log cabin to their advantage while campaigning to create a connection with the American people. Log cabins are typically thought of as small in structure and are often located in remote places. They are structurally identical to log homes, but typically, most contemporary builders prefer not to use the term “log cabin”.
Today’s log homes tend to throw the “humble beginnings” schema out the window as they can venture into the multi-million dollar price range. Like cabins, log homes are sometimes located in remote locations, but are much larger and unlike a log cabin, have all of the amenities any regular home.
Owning a log home is a great way to commune with nature. Currently, we have three of them listed in Western Maryland, one of the most naturally beautiful areas in the United States.
