The days where log cabins were constructed just by laying a log horizontally on top of one another and filling in any gaps with wood chips and mud have long gone. With the advances in technology and computers many log cabin manufacturers can now create a wide range of shapes and sizes that are much easier to construct, as many log cabins now have interlocking designs. These cabins will last for many years but this will depend on the quality of cabin you buy as a cheaper one may not be the best investment in the long run. Maintaining the wood of your log cabin will also add to its longevity. To maintain the wood of your cabin you will have to use a wood preservative which is widely available in many different colors just making sure it is well suited for exterior or interior wood as each one will have different quality’s.
