A log house is less whimsical to maintain, especially if it is larch. This tree is not afraid of any frost, water, heat, the most fire-resistant wood of the available species, and is less prone to rot. But naturally, larch is more expensive than pine logs.
In any case, it is necessary to protect the wood. The ends of logs and other wooden parts are regularly treated with protective equipment.
