This classic cabin design is one of North American Log Crafters’ top-rated wood chalets at the Alpine Village Cabin Resort. The cabin, located near Jasper in Alberta, is made from Douglas Fir logs. It is timeless in design. The executive cabin, which had one bedroom, was built in 2012 and featured a fireplace with two sides. It could be viewed from the log-beamed greatroom or the luxurious queen bed in the separate room. The cabin has a designer bathroom with a bench and walk-in shower, as well as a high-end kitchen. The wood cottage has a large porch with a private barbecue and beautiful views of the forest. The maximum number of people that can stay in the wood cottage is three.
Cabins are very popular for many reasons. One of these is their environmental friendliness. Every building material begins with the extraction of natural resources and ends with their disposal. Wood, which starts with logging, can be considered the only renewable and sustainable raw material. In the extraction, processing and production of raw building materials, economic activity and energy consumption are key. The entire lifecycle of a building material reveals the effects the substance has, from beginning through end. There are many ways to measure the impact of building materials, including energy use, water usage, and carbon balance.
