Conestoga Cabins Meet Any Energy Code
Conestoga offers two different insulation packages. Both take advantage of thermal mass and the Everlast™ Log advantage. The result is less air infiltration that provides a more comfortable energy efficient building that saves money while you enjoy your cabin.
What is Thermal Mass?
Thermal Mass is a concept in building design and construction that describes how the walls of the building provide “inertia” against temperature fluctuations. By their very nature log cabins and log homes differ from other construction techniques because solid wood has both moderate R-value (insulation) and significant thermal mass.
Single Wall Siding Package
This is recommended for year round residences in cold weather climates. This package adds a layer of insulation and interior log siding to a single wall structure. This technology will meet or exceed the most stringent energy code requirements.
