Log Cabins:

As with green oak, there has been a rise in recent years in companies offering traditional log cabin construction. With this form of construction, whole buildings are made using entire logs, carefully locked together.



Log Cabin Manufacturers:

  • The Bespoke Log Cabin Company -can provide a range of log cabins that fulfil the Caravan Act as a Mobile Home -very useful for self builders while the project is underway -and much warmer than a caravan too.
  • Clifford Jones Welsh Timber -the UK's largest machine round timber manufacturer using timbers that are sourced from fully sustainable sources -their products include a range of log cabins..
  • Finestam -anglo-estonian company supplying standard or bespoke log homes and cabins in the UK and Ireland. Some useful background information on log construction.
  • Finwood -log and timber specialists based in Perthshire -they build everything from garden offices to family homes using Finnish Timber.
  • Log Home links -US site with links to builders, manufacturers and dealers of log homes and cabins.
  • Norwegian Log -homes and cabins made from Norwegian Spruce harvested from managed forests in Norway.
  • Pinelog Buildings -from its factory and offices in Derbyshire, Pinelog provides architecturally designed Scandinavian redwood buildings ranging from summerhouses to large commercial leisure centres.
  • SpaHaus -log cabins and spa enclosures in Pembokeshire
