The History of
Florida Log Homes
Florida offers a rich history when it comes to Florida Log Homes. Florida being one of the first places in the United States to be settled by the pioneers, showcases some of the oldest Log Homes, Florida cracker style log homes and Log Cabin Homes in the US. These old Log Homes made of Cypress are a true testament of time and show you one of the many Benefits of Cypress Log Homes.
An excellent example is the Riffee Florida log home that was started in 1929 and completed in 1931. This wonderful cypress log home was originally built for Mary and Oneal Cox of the Cox furniture family in Gainesville, Florida.
The cypress logs used in the building process were harvested from the local Sweetwater Cypress Swamp. This impressive 3400 square foot Florida Log Home shows that even with all the harsh elements, rain, high humidity, time and insects cypress is the king of log home wood.
The New, Florida Log
Home Builders of Today
Although Florida Log Homes of the past have their own pristine, New Florida cypress log homes have many new benefits. Today’s log homes average a whopping 30 to 45% more energy efficient than a typical standard conventional spec home.
Customers that build log homes today are focusing on lowering their electrical footprint and designing some of the strongest homes on the market today. Log Homes can actually take more stress loads in a Hurricane than a traditional CBS block home. Log Home customers today use state of the art spray insulation and high-efficiency windows and doors, this with a combination of full logs drops their electric utility bills to a fraction of a typical home. Log homes today are able to be heated and cooled with smaller units adding to longterm savings due to their overall efficiency.
Several things have changed over the years; one is the lighting. Log Homeowners today are incorporating lot’s of great lighting which is needed due to wood doesn’t reflect light as well as drywall. In the Log Homes of the past, the log walls on the interior of the home was finished with Tung Oils which darkened over time dropping light levels.
