As you likely know, Timber Block Insulated Log Homes are highly energy efficient. This, thanks to the R-30 wall insulation (standard in every Timber Block home) combined with a near air tight thermal envelope results in a highly energy efficient home. We utilize Green Technology, and are proud to be an ecological, environmentally-friendly way to build.
