Interesting Log Home Community

As you can imagine, as the editor of this directory, I see a lot of interesting things associated with the log home industry. From products designed especially for log homes to new floor plan designs, eco-building materials and everything in between. Like many of you, I have also investigated various ‘log home communities’ that have popped up over the years; some are predictable in scope and some quite unique.

A fellow named David Di Massino contacted me earlier this week inquiring about having his website listed in our Log Home Directory. His website speaks to people who appreciate the community approach to log home living and want to do the right thing by the environment.

According to his website, Darian Estates is a “green community” of exclusive custom built Solar Log Homes in the heart of Central Florida. Located just minutes from Historical Mt. Dora, with easy access to surrounding venues including Orlando, Daytona, Ocala, Tampa, and Gainesville. Darian Estates is an Equestrian friendly community with a private horse trail on site, so bring your horse(s). It is also adjacent to the Lake Norris Conservation Area in the Wekieva Basin of the Seminole State Forest’s Black Water Creek, it is an ideal location for hiking and camping with miles of horse trails for your enjoyment. There are only a limited number of lots, so do not delay. Included with the purchase of each lot and log home package are: 1- FREE-(5kw) Photo-Voltaic Solar Electric System, and 1- FREE-(80. Gallon) Solar Water Heater.

Oftentimes, we tend to categorize log homes as ‘mountain homes’ even though states like Texas and Florida are huge log home markets. Anyway, I thought this was an interesting approach for people who want the log home lifestyle, but want the community atmosphere included.

  • I love this idea. I read about log home communities and always thought they were like upper class gated communities and such. This just seems like a darn good idea who’s time has come. All that FL sunshine probably makes this work effectively.

  • We are doing something similar in Belfast, NY. Building a community of homes that features energy efficient building techniques, plus we are involving local providers of organic produce to supply our homeowners. We think this is how communities should be built.
