The Foundation of Your Log Home 

One of the most important elements involved in the construction of your log home is the foundation you choose to build it on. 
A high-quality foundation will allow you to erect a home that is able to withstand natural forces that would otherwise damage your house such as wind and soil pressure. The three most common foundation types are:

• Poured Concrete – This foundation comes at a steeper price and also requires more labor. However, it doesn’t retain moisture and is extremely strong and durable. 

• Pre-Cast – Provides a combination of speed, strength and drainage capabilities. This type of foundation is ideal for a level base and is a good option if you lack the time required for poured concrete or cinder block. 

• Cement or Cinder Block – This is the least expensive of the three but demands the most time. While cinder block is used it tends to hold more moisture, which encourages a damp environment, it is also a strong choice for a foundation. 

Since your needs, budget and inclinations will vary, there is no single best option when it comes to the foundation of your home. Adequate research before the construction process will allow you to make the best decision for the log home you envision.
