Log homes many benefits:

  • Simple maintenance: A log home needs very little maintenance. Internally, the log walls are maintenance free. It will simply require a coat of clear UV protection every 2-3 years to protect it and maintain the lustre of the log.
  • Easy to install: Because they are easy to install, they cause little disruption on site.
  • Energy efficient: Log homes are energy-efficient and excellent at retaining heat and conserving energy. This is due to the logs’ natural insulation and their natural temperature control properties. You can expect your log cabin home to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • Adds value to your home: A well-built and well-maintained log home is a great way of adding value to your property. An annexe in the garden would be supplied as a Transportable log home, provided it is for a family member it will not require planning permission and in most cases it is exempt from Building regulations and VAT. Any log home outside of the garden will require planning permission.
  • Sustainability: All our logs come from northern Scandinavia, where re-planting to ensure sustainability is a legal requirement.
  • Strength unique to Scandinavian wood: Northern Scandinavia where the climate is cold means that trees grow very slowly. This results in a very strong, close-grained log.
  • Long lasting: Our log homes are made for life and built to last. They come with a full five-year warranty as standard. This can be extended to 25 years.
  • Peace and quiet: Thanks to the same thermal mass that provides energy efficiency, you will be surprised with how quiet a log home is. Ideal to those wanting to relax and enjoy their home.

With a wide range of log cabins for sale from just £53,653, it is easy to see why installing a Norwegian log cabin home on your land is an excellent long-term investment.

There will be many different factors that influence how long your log cabin lasts. These include ongoing maintenance, location/weather conditions, and the materials used to build it.

Simple maintenance contributes towards a longer lifespan of your log cabin. A coat of clear UV protection externally is recommended every 2-3 years.

In terms of materials, at Norwegian Log we only use logs from northern Scandinavia, where the climate is cold and the trees grow slowly. This produces logs that are very strong and close-grained. These characteristics result in log that are inherently stable, not twisting or warping associated with the inferior wood.

When well-looked after, a log cabin will have an indefinite lifespan. Our log cabins are made for life and built to last, requiring very little maintenance. In fact, one of our show homes is over 35 years old.

We manufacture all our residential log homes to the very highest Norwegian standards. Our log cabins come with a 5-year warranty as standard, which can be extended to up to 25 years.

Reassuringly our team of experts will deliver the components of your Scandinavian log cabin to site even where access is narrow or awkward. We assemble your new log home and install the roof, internal walls, windows, doors, floors and decoration. Should you decide to arrange the fit out, we will then provide complete working drawings for your chosen contractors to fit out your electrical services, kitchen fittings, bathroom, mains, plumbing and floor coverings.

It's possible to live permanently in a log cabin. When purchasing a separate log cabin that is ancillary to the main house it needs to abide by the rules for creating a permanent home. These are the same for any building regardless of the construction material.

Obtaining a Lawful Development Certificate is the first step, the cabin must meet BS3632 as a mobile home or Building Regulations if it is a permanent structure.

With our vast experience in the industry, we can offer you the advice you need to get the permissions needed to build your ideal log cabin.

All our log cabins homes are available as a complete interior fit-out annex package. This means it can include kitchen, bathroom, electrics, plumbing, providing a home ready for occupation in just weeks from ordering.

Our cabins offer ideal extra accommodation for family members at home. All our log homes have floor plans that meet DDA guidelines for disabled access. This makes them ideal family or granny annexes, saving on care costs and providing reassuring closeness to the family.

FAQ's

Log homes are classed as energy-efficient as they are excellent at retaining heat and conserving energy. This is owing to the logs' natural insulation as interlocking logs provide insulation, and with the natural temperature control properties of the logs, your log home/cabin will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Whilst allowing you to keep your energy costs low, log homes are eco-friendly and cause minimal disruption to the environment.

From Enquiry to Enjoyment in Six Easy Steps

When we meet, we’ll discuss your requirements in detail. We have immense experience in this area, so what might seem challenging to you is routine to us. We’ll explore your site using our planning software, and establish whether the model you choose will fit in your garden. We’ll do all we can to help you get the most out of your site and budget.

Your visit to our show homes at our Reading headquarters is particularly important. There is simply no substitute for experiencing the real thing. One of our show homes is over 30 years old, so you will be able to confirm for yourself how their ambience and style endure without dating.

On the basis of what we learn from our discussions with you, we’ll provide you with a full design proposal and a comprehensive quotation.

At a time convenient for you, we’ll visit your site and perform a detailed survey. We’ll agree the precise positioning of your log building in your garden.

In most cases, you will not need Planning Permission for one of our log buildings located in your garden. We will give you detailed advice and explanations once we know your situation. We will always obtain a Lawful Development Certificate on your behalf from your planning authority, which will confirm that you do not need Planning Permission if that is indeed the case.

Once we have your LDC we can start producing your log building. We understand that you need certainty, so we will give you a confirmed delivery date as soon as possible. We install your log building quickly and cleanly, with great respect for your garden and main home, before a prompt and smooth final handover.

It's warm and it's cosy; it's solid and it's quiet. The fragrance of pine reminds you of Scandinavian forests and summer evenings. Your imagination starts to take you places. You imagine a wood burner, perhaps a desk or why not just some space to think?

Our show home is 33 years old, yet customers still say it looks and feels brand new. That's the quality of our workmanship and the materials. When you step into a Norwegian Log building you're stepping into a feeling and just like our buildings it's one that will last.
