Our log cabins last a lifetime

As long as you treat a log cabin correctly, there is no reason why it will not last a lifetime. The high quality, kiln dried Norway Spruce timber from Siberia (many of the trees are 150 years old) wich we use is as good as it gets when it comes to timber for construction. These trees are very slow growing, and the grain is super-tight, so there will be no warping or bending in your log cabin walls, floors or roof.

How to paint your log cabin

Maintenance of your log cabin is key if you want it to last a lifetime. The roof is well protected with our pressed steel, tile effect roof panelling. The floor is well protected in the way we build our log cabins – the cabin walls overhang the concrete base by ten millimetres all round, and we have a rain sill to ensure that the base is kept completely dry all of the time. The final element to maintaining your log cabin is treating the walls correctly. All you have to do is treat the walls with SIKKENS, or some other suitable stain (NOT PAINT!) and your cabin will last a lifetime. A stain allows the timber wlls to breathe – in other words, moisture is not trapped beneath the impermeable paint skin. This ensures the longevitiy of your log vcabin walls.

Double wall construction

If you’r goning to stay in your log cabin, it needs to be insulated. Some companies offer 75mm solid walls, with no insulation. This is a disaster in the damp Irish climate. Do not buy a cabin with this spec! You’ll have black mould growing behind your wardrobes and presses in no time. Very unhealthy!
