The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

The annual EcoBuild America conference hits Washington, D.C., next week, with Country's Best Cabins Assistant Editor Danielle Taylor and myself in attendance to listen to and pick the brains of industry experts for our upcoming "green" issue. Although we are certain to learn of new trends, building practices and materials available (which we will, of course, pass along to you), many of you have expressed interest in the past in specific energy-efficient topics.

We have attempted to cover several of these within the pages of both Country's Best Cabins and Log Home Living over the years; however, as this aspect of the building industry seems to be ever-changing at times, we wanted to know if there was anything in particular you still wanted to know more about. Perhaps it's energy-efficient lighting and materials options, as our colleague Elaine hinted at recently, or the new codes being discussed in our forums. Or maybe you're looking to take your cabin completely off the grid. Please share your thoughts with us, regardless of how large or small the element may be. We look forward to hearing what your latest interests are.

Thanks for all your comments. We're putting the finishing touches on this issue, which is scheduled to hit newsstands the first week of April. We hope you find it as informative as we do. Feel free to send me any feedback you may have.

I am currently trying to become more involved in building a passive house. So I am interested in boilers wood vs gas etc. of coarse radiant heat, solar maybe, geo thermal definately, base board vs heat pump, insulating around the exterior of the foundation, how do i get rid of the heat pump and still cool the house. whats going to be the most cost effective and energy efficient way to insulate a double roof.
