Advantages of Living in a Residential Cabin During the Cold Period

Residential cabins offer a unique and relaxed lifestyle that is good for physical and mental health. The serene environment provided by a residential cabin is unmatched. Living in a residential cabin has several advantages that enable you to live a peaceful life.

Due to its very nature and characteristics, residential cabins offer several advantages. Irrespective of the season, a residential cabin is a comfortable abode to live, and those who live in it are protected from the harshness of the weather outside. Winters can be tough and if not dealt with properly may result in various health related issues. Living in a residential cabin during winter has several advantages.

Longer Life of the Residential Cabin

Wood is a naturally occurring material and can withstand harsh weather conditions. Hence, it is an appropriate material for constructing a residential cabin. A good quality timber can last for several decades and have a natural resistance to the climatic conditions.

Choosing a wooden cabin as your abode, especially during colder weather ensures that your house has a much longer life as compared to traditional concrete structure. During cold period and snowfall, the wood used to build the cabin is more sustainable and durable. It is quite robust to withstand the severity of the cold weather and does not deteriorate.

The wear and tear are much lesser of a wooden residential cabin requiring in very little maintenance activities. For the regions that have extreme cold weathers for a large part of the year, a residential cabin offers a long lasting solution.

   *  Wood is a natural element that has excellent resistance to cold weather.    *  A residential cabin has a longer life even in locations with extremely cold conditions.    *  Less wear and tear of the cabin.    *  The structural strength of the residential cabin persists for a long time.

Low Maintenance

Residential cabins have a much longer life than concrete structures due to the natural strength of wood. It means that there is a lesser requirement for repair and maintenance. Residential cabins, due to their structural strength are not damaged easily despite extreme conditions.

A little maintenance just before winter, for example in autumn will keep the residential cabin in good condition for the rest of the year. Even during winters, it will not sustain any significant damage, and there would not be many requirements for repair.

Natural Insulation

Wood is a natural insulator, and this results in a low transfer of heat or cold from outside the residential cabin to its interiors. During cold periods, the heat loss from within the cabin is minimum as the heat is not transferred from the inside to the outside.

Consequently, the interiors remain warm and comfortable, and this results in a cosy living condition. Living in a log house gives a natural protection from the cold weather due to the natural insulation provided by the wood. As the insulation is natural, there is not much requirement for using artificial heating equipment that are harmful to health.

   *  Wood provides natural insulation and reduces the need for heating apparatus.    *  Natural insulation is healthier as compared to using electrical equipment.    *  Low heat loss from the interiors of the cabin.    *  Due to lesser heat loss, the requirement of burning wood in the fireplace is also reduced thereby reducing the pollution.

Energy Efficient

Residential cabins are energy efficient due to their natural insulation abilities. During cold climatic conditions, the cabin remains sufficiently warm inside, and heat from within the cabin is not transferred outside. It reduces the requirement of using heating equipment to a large extent that helps save energy by reducing its consumption.

Residential cabins use 25-30 percent less energy as compared to concrete buildings. It benefits the environment and reduces carbon footprint. The requirement of using the fireplace is also reduced, consequently reducing the emission of carbon monoxide.

   *  Less energy consumption.

   *  Saves 25-30 percent energy as compared to regular concrete structures.

   *  A low requirement of heating equipment reduces energy consumption.

   *  Low use of wood in the fireplace reduces emission of carbon monoxide and other harmful gases.

 Cost Effective

Wooden cabins are constructed from high-quality timber that have long life naturally. These cabins are durable enough to sustain the extreme cold conditions. Due to their robust nature, they require fewer maintenance activities. There is also much lower energy consumption. All these factors make residential cabins cost effective. Since these cabins have a long life, they can be used as a residence for several decades which reduces the cost of buying another cabin and other associated costs. Low maintenance also means lower costs. Not much cost is incurred for the repair and maintenance activities. The energy efficiency of these cabins also significantly reduce the costs.

   *  Long cabin life means lower cost and high value for money.

   *  Lower maintenance also helps save money.

   *  Less energy consumption during winters reduces the energy costs.

   *  The heating equipment faces less wear and tear due to lower use. It reduces the cost of their repair and maintenance.

Natural Light

Residential cabins are usually constructed with lots of open spaces around them. It means there is more natural sunlight entering the house. These cabins also have doors with glass panes and several windows allowing more light to enter. During winters when the sunlight is low and results in the use of more artificial lighting, residential cabins require lesser artificial lights. It results in lower energy consumption as well as cost efficiency.

Residential cabins are built to provide a natural lifestyle that has plenty of health benefits. During the cold weather, these cabins provide warmth and comfort and a natural protection from low temperatures. As the mercury drops, concrete structures face significant damages.

They are also not efficient in providing protection from the cold weather resulting in the requirement of heating equipment. Residential cabins offer a more cost and energy-efficient alternative by providing comfortable living conditions during winter.

The warmth offered by residential cabins is natural with low reliance on artificial heating methods that are hazardous for health. Residential cabins are better alternatives for a healthy living during the cold periods.

  • Can these cabins be viewed on site? I am planning a small development on a site that I own. Thanks you,

    • Judith,
      We have a showroom in St.Albans (AL4 0HN) where you can see a few of our smaller cabins. As for the residential ones, there are a few customers in UK who are happy to show their big cabins bought from us. Please let us know which residential cabin would you like to see (in the UK) and we will arrange it.
