Why A Walden Log Home?
They are the GREENEST way to build! The entire exterior structure is 100% recycled! The global footprint of a Walden Log Home fits exactly in one that was made over 100 years ago. No additional trees are felled since we re-use ones that were cut, hand-hewn, and hand-notched two centuries ago. Couple that with our reclaimed heart-pine flooring, and you are an unsung hero in the world of Green Building.
Besides contributing to environmental responsibility, our reclaimed timbers add character and interest and depth to any home.
In this fast-paced world, people are striving to simplify their lives. The implicit beauty of log homes, coupled with their association with simpler times, make them a breath of fresh air amidst the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.
Whether a primary residence where every weeknight becomes a weekend or a second home where every weekend getaway becomes a vacation, log homes are a vehicle (totally emission-free!) to unwinding and recharging your batteries.
Why a Walden 19th Century Antique Log Home?
A Walden Log Home truly is the way a log home is supposed to look. All of the logs that Walden uses are at least 100 years old, and yet they are in as good a shape today as they were 100 years ago. They were hand-cut, hand-peeled and hand-notched centuries ago when the forests in the southeast United States were filled with virgin timbers. They had been there since inception.
Our logs came from the hearts of these virgin timbers, so functionally, they are the same if not better than new logs. But when it comes to looks, there is no comparison. Let's face it, not everyone likes the new-log look. Our logs are not all uniform in size and shape, so they don't look like plastic. They are not milled, but were hand-cut, hand-peeled, and hand-notched over 100 years ago. Walden is not a kit manufacturer.
We build custom homes with beautiful antique logs. So the final effect is a log home that looks authentic and is authentic, versus something that looks pre-fabricated. It is like owning an original Monet, Picasso or Van Gogh, rather than merely settling for a print.
