So you thought log homes were a uniquely American phenomenon? Well, think again. These lodge-like structures sit squarely in a mountainous area of northern Slovakia, where a tradition of log living is centuries old. The design has a clearly European flavor, but the lumber preparation and construction techniques are similar to those in the United States and Canada. These particular homes were designed as weekend getaways, suitable for families of 3 or 4 out for a ski holiday or mountain bike adventure. Another area where traditional log home construction is enjoying a resurgence is Scandinavia. Check out some of the Finnish and Norwegian designs for a unique perspective.
