Log homes represent one of the most traditional and historic approaches to home building – yet, they are now on the cutting edge of the green construction movement. This is especially true for a Southland log home. The designs and materials supplied by Southland Log Homes provide not only a beautiful log home, but one that is also highly energy efficient, makes use of natural, renewable resources, and supports a healthy home environment.
Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings:
A primary benefit of Southland’s green approach is a high level of energy efficiency, and the money saved as a result of reduced heating and cooling costs. The logs used in the construction of a Southland log home are precision-milled, providing a tighter fit and a more energy-efficient structure. The natural thermal mass of the logs helps to hold the heat in the winter and keep things cooler in the summer. In fact, a study conducted by the Department of Energy showed that a solid wood log home saves 46 percent in heating costs and 24 percent in cooling costs compared to a stick-frame home.
Now more than ever, you need Southland's helping hand to arrange financing for your new log home. Southland Log Homes has established a network of Construction Lenders to assist you in financing your log home dream. We will help you identify those qualified lenders in your area who understand your log home needs.
While preparing for your log home financing, develop a realistic budget and maintain access to cash.
Most lenders will allow land equity to help meet the stricter requirements, although some may require a portion of that equity to be in cash. Generally, lenders will expect the owner to have at least 20% equity in the form of cash or land equity. If you currently own a home, even one that you are planning to sell, you may be able to use a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) to help finance your new log home. This process may be much simpler and faster than other alternatives.
