1.Do I need a planning permission to build my cabin?

  • Yes you do in most cases. We would advise you to contact your local county or city council for more information

2. Do the prices on the website include ground works? 

  • No, the prices provided on the website are flat-pack prices only. The price includes the cabin, delivery, guttering, steel tile effect roof and floor and roof and floor insulation. The price also includes 23% Vat.

3. How long does log cabins last?

  • Our cabins can last indefinitely if they are taken care of properly. Treatment of the wood is necessary. We are proud to say that we use the best quality windows, doors and sealants to make your home last that long. All of our cabins are wrapped with a one-way breathable membrane for air tightness and water proofing.

4.In relation to your turn-key option, do you do wooden base or concrete base?

  •  We only use concrete base. We feel that concrete base would be an addition to water proofing and making your home last longer. It also would prevent from little creatures from crawling underneath the structure and damaging it. Also, concrete base is a very stable structure. If you feel the need for timber base, we will happily price it for you.

5. What are the benefits of choosing Log Home in comparison to a standard house?

  • There are many benefits. First one is definitely financial benefits. You can have, for example, 3 bedroom cabin for a 1/3 of the price of a 3 bedroom house. The cabins we sell are all ECO cabins, with low carbon footprint and due to insulation, energy efficient. Wood is a very good insulator, along with insulation itself, allows you to live in the cabin all year around. It is a very popular practice in Alaska and Canada. Also there are many health benefits such as;

    • Lower stress levels
    • Improved attention and focus
    • Greater creativity
    • Quicker recovery
    • Reduced pain perception

    This is the premise behind biophilic design – the idea that incorporating natural elements in the built environment, such as wood, water, sunlight or plants, can actually improve overall health.

    Additionally, wood is associated with warmth, thanks to its role as a natural insulator, as I have mentioned before. Buildings that use wood in ample structural and finish applications have the potential to yield high levels of thermal comfort and mitigate sound while presenting an overall smaller environmental footprint than structures made of other materials, such as concrete and steel.
