A Partially Buried Surface Has Many Benefits

The ability to partially bury your log cabin is an advantage, especially if you live in a climate with harsh conditions. This protects from frosty evenings, ice, and snow. It is the same for stored food and crops.

Thanks to thermal inertia, the temperature of buildings that are partially buried will equal the average temperature of local air. It means that the temperature inside buildings remains constant, regardless of sudden changes in external temperatures.

Building Your Underground Log House

The construction of partially-buried buildings is simple and produces immediate results. The thermal mass in the subsoil provides heat and shields these structures from cold conditions.
