Constructed log-by-log with interlocking feature corners. Timber interior walls offer that traditional log cabin feel. If for year-round residential use, we recommend an engineered glulam wall profile rather than solid timber. Many sizes and styles available.
Our log cabins are available in single-skin or twin-skin wall profile options. Single-skin is one wall layer with electrics and plumbing face-mounted (visible). Twin-skin allows the plumbing and electrics to be hidden between the two wall layers, and insulation is added here too, which makes it a good option for residential builds. Both wall layers interlock together and locate into the roof.
For maximum quality we favour glulam (glued laminated timber) for our residential models, as opposed to standard solid timber.
Solid timber moves throughout the year because of shrinking/swelling, and it splits easily, too. This option is reserved for non-residential models (garages, garden rooms, etc) or those looking for an inexpensive (specification is not to full residential standard) way to install a mobile home/granny annexe in the grounds of their home.
Glulam is precision engineered and bonded in layers to increase strength and stability. It won’t rot, shrink, crack or split, it’s virtually maintenance free, and yet lasts a lifetime. Glulam can conform to building regulations because structural calculations can be made that aren’t possible with standard solid timber. If you prefer a plasterboard interior finish in line with modern houses, rather than the traditional timber look, glulam construction makes it possible to add framework and plasterboard to the internal walls that are external facing.
Log cabins are well suited to sites with restricted access because of the way they go together; they can be brought onto a site in much smaller sections, even log-by-log. This can be advantageous compared to timber frame construction, which consists of complete wall panels being manoeuvred using specialist lifting equipment requiring more space.
