Your new log home
When you’re considering a log home as a permanent residence, it’s easy to leap ahead and picture it all: find your perfect plot, build your log home and move in. What could be simpler?
In fact, a residential log home faces the same hurdles as a bricks-and-mortar home: Planning Permission, Building Regulations, expensive foundations... the list goes on.
However, here at Norwegian Log we can keep your plans on track, with the perfect answer to that “What could be simpler?” question. We do have a simpler solution. It’s faster and more economical, yet still gives you the log home you want to enjoy and be proud of.
Our solution – the mobile/transportable log home
Our simpler solution is our mobile/transportable log homes, which are the only ones that give you The Norwegian Log Effect™.
Peaceful and spacious inside, our mobile log homes have a low external visual impact that’s ideal for environmentally sensitive areas.
What’s more, they comply fully with the Caravan Act. This greatly simplifies – or even eliminates – Planning Permission and Building Regulations. This area is so important that we’ve put together a simple guide to Planning Permission for mobile log homes. The guide includes some quick checklists to help you decide whether you’ll need Planning Permission for your mobile log home. But if you have any questions, call us and discuss your situation with one of our experts.
Things to consider about siting your residential log home
We also have an informative checklist of the top ten things to consider when you’re looking into siting a mobile log home. Originally published in Home Farmer magazine, it contains a wealth of information for any potential mobile log home owner.

Most frequently asked questions
Can I install solar panels on the roof?
Yes, provided all fittings are appropriately sealed.
Can I replace an existing mobile home with a Norwegian Log transportable home?
Generally yes, provided you have the necessary local authority permissions. We normally recommend seeking a Certificate of Lawful Use. Our transportable log homes conform to The Caravan Act, and we build them to the relevant British Standards. We strongly advise that you check with your local Planning Office before proceeding.
Can you provide a price for my existing architect's plans?
We can provide a budget cost, or a fixed-price quotation if you have full plans approval.
