All of our logs and timber are sourced from sustainable forestry’s in Europe & Scandinavia where the climates are coldest. This promotes slow growth of the trees hence making the timber denser and of better quality and structural strength.
The most traditional methods are used to ensure not only the rustic feel is achieved but structural integrity is to the highest of standards.

A NEW STYLE OF LIVING
Although log cabins have been constructed and lived in hundreds of years ago before the modern day building methods had evolved,The log cabin is now becoming a more and more sought after living experience for both the holiday let industry and everyday living lifestyle alike.

Solid Log Cabins internal walls are solid logs to match logs used for external walls.

For improved U-value properties we can horizontally internal batten and provide a second layer of insulation at right angles to the main wall insulation. This system virtually removes any cold bridges.
The exterior has a ventilation void with client choice external finish which can be redwood panelling, hardwood panelling, half round log effect or beautiful red cedar cladding.

Log Cabins – Build Or Buy It’s an Affordable Housing Deal
Log Cabins UK are merely a tiny residence constructed from logs. It is distinguished from log houses in such a manner that the former refers simply to the much more rustic, smaller sized cabins often discovered in the timbers made from typical lumber while the last is practically just like log cabins other than that they are a lot bigger and are made from logs that are either milled or handcrafted. Log cabins are homes especially made up of logs or wood. Log cabins are basic houses mostly integrated areas abundant in natural deposits such as lumber.
The majority of Log Cabins UK are constructed with logs flat laid and attached at the ends with levels. Some make use of nails rather than degrees, yet the latter is still far better. A lot of are located nearby ranches or ranches, in places with sufficient sunshine and also excellent drainage. As there have actually been a boost of people constructing log cabins, selecting what type of cabin will certainly be built is crucial. To safeguard the log cabin from moisture of the dirt, they are constructed with huge rocks as a base.
Log cabin building kits are logs that have been cut, milled, dried and shaped into ‘packages’ called log cabin kit homes. Here are the advantages of building this way along with how to find log cabin building kits that may be right for you.

Finance and Payment
With the current economic climate, clients (rightly so) are ever more concerned of the financial stability of the companies they work with. And, companies within the supply industry are ever more concerned with clients they have not worked with in the past. Within the Cabin industry this has created a ‘chicken and egg’ scenario as clients are usually one off clients and Cabin suppliers do not tend to commence with orders in the absence of a sizable deposit, which in most cases is 50% being paid at order (before any commitment is made to the client) and 95% to 100% being paid before the client receives any goods.
We have provided a simple solution. We set out a simple to follow clear payment structure as outlined below. The payments are made to our Solicitor which gives an undertaking not to release funds each the required stage is reached. When each stage has been reached, we provide proof to the Solicitor by photographs, lists and labelling (which is copied to the client), when payment is released to us, this automatically triggers the transfer of title of the goods as per the provided list.
By adopting this system it provides clients with full comfort we delivery and their funds are in safe hands at all times.
Site Appraisal and Cabin Design are services payable separate to us, if required by the client.
