Log cabins: 6 inspiring examples

Until a few decades ago, houses made from glass and steel were considered to be modern examples of architecture. Nowadays the situation is completely different. With the special appreciation of the natural properties of building materials and the growing importance of the ecology topic, log cabins have simply begun to dominate the construction market. The desire to take advantage of nature and to create a home close to it has never been so strong. This is one of the main reasons why wood has become practically an integral part of the architecture.

Log cabins

Inspired by these facts, we have decided to introduce you large architectural possibilities that open up when choosing wood as the main building material. We present six modern wooden houses projects that will give you new ideas for creating your dream home.

1. Combination of vertical logs and concrete

Materials such as cement, metal, and glass are still in line with modern design, but they can often make a building look cold and particularly formal. Wood not only offers exceptional design options but is also perfect for buildings that need to look warm and welcoming. These modern nursing home in northern Europe could be a perfect example.

2. A combination of vertical siding and a flat roof

The vertical placement of the wooden boards is a great choice to make your log cabins look visually taller. A flat roof combined with the exterior of this house will not allow you to lose modernity. The simple and minimalist window and door frames retain an elegant style in this case, and the decision to install floor-to-ceiling windows provides the high amount of natural light needed for a modern building that is used all year round.

3. Updated design of a traditional wooden house

The traditional, tapering shape of a wooden house is probably the first thing many of us still associate with countryside buildings. However, this does not mean that such a shape adheres a rustic label to the building. This Norwegian boathouse is a unique example of how traditional cabins could be upgraded to become modern, eye-catching buildings. It is important to emphasize that this structure is completely clad in wood, including the roof, which is only possible with a modified type of material. Skylights are installed on the roof of the house, which not only adds a unique appearance but also provides enough daylight inside the house.

4. A combination of modernity and sustainability

It is no secret that when planning new buildings nowadays, their sustainability becomes no less important than modernity. The concept of sustainability is particularly important in the case of public buildings (such as this school), which not only play an important role in education but also set an example and shape society's attitude. Modified wood is one of the least maintenance-intensive materials on the market, making it ideal for public buildings because (to maintain a beautiful appearance) the wood finish requires relatively little care. We can confidently consider such buildings as educational tools that can encourage the use of environmentally friendly resources.

5. Combined wood styles

Log houses have a lot of finishing options, but one of the most popular is the combination of different finishing styles. For example, this detached house is completely covered with modified wood. Since the wood was chosen as the main material, an exclusive accent of the exterior is created by the horizontal and vertical placement of boards. However, when creating a unique building exterior, wood can also be combined with other materials such as concrete, stone, glass. You will be amazed at how modern wooden houses can become if the designer does the exterior design work well.

6. Warm siding and stainless steel windows

The building seen above is a great example of how the issue of finishing a house with more complex architecture can be solved. Vertical siding, which is easily adapted to the more complex shape of the house, is also especially useful in cases where the building requires more visual height. Stainless steel geometric window frames provide a simple but noteworthy visual element that blends perfectly with natural wood. The playfulness of both cold (steel) and warm (wood) building materials allows you to create an exceptional combination surrounded by a natural landscape.
