Photographer's Note

Photograph of a wooden window found on the way to Khechupalri Lake.
Wood keep a balance of the moisture in the house, thus, if it raises, the walls begin to absorb it. If the environment becomes too dry, then the wood will „bring back” the humidity. This is why indoors you have the same humidity level as outdoors. This Wood’s ability to retain and restore humidity helps mentain a constant temperature indoors.There is no dust in log houses. Wood’s electrostatic proprieties don’t allow the formation and accumulation of dust in the rooms.

Wooden walls have isolative proprieties. In Siberia, where temperatures drop below 40 degrees in winter, not long ago, people lived in wood houses with walls 25-30cm thick. A wall this thick has a isolative capacity equal to that of a concrete wall. The walls keep the warmth and distribute in gradually around the house. Thus, the room’s temperature is the same as the wall’s. This creates comfort in this type of houses.
