10/10/10 Log Home Legacy

10/10/10, Sunday, October 10, 2010

The numbers make for an eye-catching date, but is there anything significant about this sequence of numbers?  Yes, this only occurs every hundred years, but a quick Google search shows that nothing of any significance happened a thousand years ago during the year 1010.  Additionally, it seems that nothing significant happened two thousand years ago during the year 10.

The odds are that nothing significant will happen today, 10/10/10. I could be wrong so check with me tomorrow.

In one hundred years when this number sequence appears again, most of the homes and buildings standing today will most likely be gone. But, did you know that some of the oldest existing buildings in America were built from logs? Properly treated to withstand the onslaught of weather and insects, a log home can last almost forever.  That’s not something we can say for most stick built houses.

Talk about a legacy, can you imagine your great grandchildren living in your log home that was built 100 years ago? They might not appreciate our clothing styles of the day, and will probably laugh at our state-of-the-art technology, but the ambiance of log home living isn’t going to change.

That uniquely American appreciation for log homes probably isn’t going to disappear. It’s been part of our heritage and culture and remains the ultimate dream for so many of us.  Economic cycles, politicians and society’s values change, but some things just seem to remain constant.  Living in a log home is one of those constants (IMHO).

If you are one of those dreamers who have been planning to build a log home, 10/10/10 is a good time to get those plans rolling. Create that legacy, build your log home. You can begin this journey by browsing over 100 log home and log cabin floor plans or contact an architect to design your special home.

There hasn’t been a better time to build a log home in the past 100 years.  Interest rates are at historic lows, builders are available for immediate work and log home manufacturers have never been more willing to make a deal.
