These log house kits come with all of the wood to build the structure, and in this case, the wood is all slow grown Nordic Spruce, which is very strong and durable. The trees are grown slowly in colder temperatures so they built up resiliency and strength over time. Log homes are a great choice because they are one of the more eco friendly types of building. Trees grown to make logs and lumber are grown in sustainable tree plantations and for every tree that is used, five more are planted in it's place, so there is always continuous growth of trees and every part of the tree is used. In the kits, they also include all of the pre hung windows and the doors, as well as the hardware like nails, screws and door handles. Everything in a log house building kit is usually labeled for easy assembly and there are also detailed instructions to follow along with. Even without a lot of building experience, a log home building kit is generally fairly simple to build, and a small house design like this one would be a great do it yourself project.
Green Garden Chicken also offers solar panel kits to create an off the grid cabin or home for around $1,800. Having solar power would be a great addition to any living situation, and you could also add on some wind power as well. Living in a small house like this one would be a great way to save money and to cut down on your carbon foot print, something many people are looking to do. Also, the freedom that comes with being fully sustainable is pretty awesome. Just plant a big garden to feed yourself and maybe get a few farm animals and you would have your own little homestead to be proud of. The company sells other items that would be great for an off grid sustainable home like compost bins and tumblers, aquaponics, rain barrels to collect rain water, green houses, and animal shelters.
