Log Homes in Maryland can be beautifully situated as Maryland possesses a great variety of topography, hence its nickname, "America in Miniature" . Maryland ranges from sandy dunes dotted with seagrass in the east, to low marshlands teeming with wildlife and large bald cypress near the bay, to gently rolling hills of oak forest in the Piedmont Region, and pine groves in the mountains to the west. Maryland Log Homes can be built along the Atlantic Ocean, Chesapeake Bay or along the Appalachin Mountains for breath taking views.
The capital of Maryland is Annapolis. For 2009, Maryland ranked first—for the third year in a row—as the U.S. state with the highest median income for 2008, with a median income of $70,545. Although the cost of living may rank high, building your dream cedar log home in the Maryland region can be accomplished using Mountain Creations log home analysis and experience to save thousands.

Located on the eastern seaboard of the US in the South Atlantic region, Maryland ranks 42nd in size among the 50 states.
Three distinct regions characterize Maryland's topography. The first and major area, falling within the Atlantic Coastal Plain, is nearly bisected by the Chesapeake Bay, dividing Maryland into the Eastern Shore and the Western Shore. The Piedmont Plateau, west of the coastal lowlands, is broad, rolling upland with several deep gorges cut by rivers. Further west, from the Catoctin Mountains in Frederick County to the West Virginia border, is the Appalachian Mountain region, containing the state's highest hills. Backbone Mountain, in Garrett County in westernmost Maryland, is the state's highest point, at 3,360 ft (1,025 m).
Despite its small size, Maryland exhibits considerable climatic diversity. Temperatures vary from an annual average of 48°F (9°C) in the extreme western uplands to 59°F (15°C) in the southeast, where the climate is moderated by the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The daily mean temperature for Baltimore is 55°F (13°C), ranging from 33°F (1°C) in January to 77°F (25°C) in July. The record high temperature for the state is 109°F (43°C), set on 10 July 1936 in Cumberland and Frederick counties; the record low, –40°F (–40°C), occurred on 13 January 1912 at Oakland in Garrett County.
Maryland has two major league professional sports teams: the Baltimore Orioles of Major League Baseball, and the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League. The Ravens (formerly the Browns) moved from Cleveland after the 1995 season, and have begun playing in a new downtown stadium near Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The NFL's Washington Redskins have begun play in a new stadium, Jack Kent Cooke Stadium, in Landover, but will still be considered a team of the District of Columbia. The Orioles won the World Series in 1966, 1970, and 1983, and American League titles in 1969, 1971, and 1979.
