FREE LOG HOMES was established with the mission of developing extraordinary Eco Friendly Log & Timber homes that equally served the interests of cottager, consumers & vacationers. That mission continues to be a driving force through today. FLH has always sought out the finest craftsmen, architects, designers, builders and support staff. We use the latest in design technology and green building practices, enabling us to be on the forefront of innovation. Construction is an environmentally conscious use of wood, as trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide, which remains stored for the lifecycle of the building. Building our log house assists with a better, more responsible future.
The “ECO VIRTUAL” concept was employed in our decisions regarding the marketing and demonstration of our products. Rather than utilizing our website as merely an introduction and announcement vehicle. ALL information is on our website – photos, Floorplans, living space sizes in sq ft and sq m.
Our customer order processing and communications are accomplished via email and phone contact, using very little paper and minimizing delivery costs (only full-size blueprints, as needed, require paper and mailing resources). Of course, this is not only environmentally friendly, but also allows us to keep our costs and overhead far below that of competing log home manufacturers.
We at FLH are committed to the environment. Wood is renewable, reusable, recyclable and biodegradable. Non-wood products require far more energy to manufacture than wood. The supplies of ores and petroleum for the production of metal and plastic are finite and cause pollution of the air and water, contributing to global warming. An inch of wood is 15 times as efficient an insulator as concrete, 400 times as efficient as steel and 1770 times as efficient as aluminum. Homes built from wood require far less energy to heat & cool, thus conserving fossil fuels.
