Log Cabins – Beautiful Buildings


Log Cabins are a great way to add extra space and buildings to your property. With a massive choice of layouts, materials, finishes, windows and more, you can have the perfect building for you and your family. Once upon-a-time most people lived in wooden buildings, but the developments of more modern building materials saw wood actually decline as a building material. Fast forward to today where people are more environmentally conscious and looking to surround themselves with more natural materials, and wood buildings are actually making a come back.

Since those early days of wooden buildings things have progressed a lot. Today's log cabins come in a wide variety of layouts. The walls can be thin, thick or even really thick. The walls can be insulated with natural materials such as straw and wood. The best log cabins now have double glazing. Today's wooden buildings are generally more energy efficient that concrete or brick buildings than 50 years ago. The materials used to build log cabins come from sustainable forests, where indigenous forests are growing, giving the greatest consideration for the environment. Not only warmer, but more environmentally friendly as well.

Log cabins, and other timber buildings can be used for many different purposes. You can add extra rooms to your house, add garden buildings, garages, workshops, offices, and more. These buildings are much easier to construct than bricks and mortar buildings. Those keen and experienced with DIY can construct a log cabin without too many specialist tools. Obviously a helping hand from a neighbor or friend is always a help.

Once timber buildings are constructed they are fairly easy to adapt and change to meet the changing needs of your property. New doorways and furniture can be easily integrated into the building. Because of the natural material, and oils in the woods, log cabins retain their beautiful smell for years. With just a little wood care treatment the smell can remain for the lifetime of the building.

With wood being such a light friendly material log cabins and timber buildings generally are very light buildings. With such a great choice of windows there is no excuse for dark or cold rooms.

Imagine having a lovely, beautifully smelling, timber, light guest building in your garden that you could show your visitors too. Would not you be guided to stay in such a room? You could even stay in it yourself during the summer. Almost like having a holiday in your own garden. Or otherwise the grandchildren would love to stay in it during the summer? Whatever you need more space for, timber buildings are a great solution.
