Distinctive buildings for discerning clients

Case studies - Private owners

As the owner of a Norwegian Log holiday lodge, the choice is yours: spend as much time as possible there yourself, let it out and enjoy the rental income - or settle for something in between to give you the best of both worlds.

Peter McArdle, a building consultant, and his wife Bernie decided on a Norwegian Log holiday lodge at Abbotsley Country Homes, Cambridgeshire, as an investment. 'We'll be able to let the lodge when we aren't using it, bringing in extra income,' says Peter. 'We have a spacious, solid log cabin, close to London yet with peaceful country views,' says Bernie.

'We use our two-bedroom cabin for several weeks a year and then let it for the remainder. This gives us free holidays plus rental income from our holiday lodge investment the rest of the year,' says Ron.


Off-grid log cabin becomes a reality for Roger and Christina thanks to sheep, a caravan - and a country gentleman

Roger White and his partner Christina Gray wanted to create a more comfortable base to support the farming and outdoor activities - but not in an old caravan. A friend had a Norwegian Log home, and after staying there for a few days they realised that something similar would be ideal for them, too. They chose a 3-bedroom Nordic from Norwegian Log's transportable range, and set about obtaining planning permission.


A better investment than financial instituitions!

David and Colleen Trusty live in Lancashire but have holidayed in South West Wales for nearly 20 years. After successful careers they had built significant savings but found themselves increasingly dissatisfied with the both the performance of, and the behaviour within, investment institutions. Colleen explains '...we felt disinclined to continue to participate in a system which seemed to have no real accountability for its actions. After some thought we hit upon the idea of buying a holiday lodge which could also be used by our family and friends'.


Productive investment

After many years in marketing, Ron Ankers and his wife Roma, who live in mid-Wales, decided they wanted to invest for their retirement in the peace and quiet of rural Lincolnshire. 'We use our two-bedroom cabin for several weeks a year and then let it for the remainder. This gives us free holidays plus rental income from our investment the rest of the year,' says Ron.


Delighted with investment

Peter McArdle, a building consultant, and his wife Bernie decided on a Norwegian Log second home at Abbotsley Country Homes, Cambridgeshire, as an investment. 'We'll be able to let the property when we aren't using it, bringing in extra income,' says Peter. 'We have a spacious, solid log home, close to London yet with peaceful country views,' says Bernie.
