Who sells the best log cabin homes in Ireland?

Of course, we’re going to say that we sell the best log cabins in Ireland.  Well, what with being in the log cabin business for over two decades, we have had lots of time to find the best log cabin suppliers in Europe – and by best, we mean the highest quality log cabins, at a fair price. We have looked at over 25 suppliers throughout our time in the business, and we are confident that nobody could find better quality, better value log cabins throughout the continent of Europe.

10-year guarantee on all log cabins

We’re quite happy to offer a ten-year guarantee on our buildings. That’s because we closely monitor the production and installation of every log cabin. We stand over the quality of the product, and the workmanship that goes into the production and construction.

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) that we use is as good as it gets when it comes to timber for construction. You can read all about the timber we use in our blog post here: What timber should a log cabin be built with

How to paint your log cabin

Maintenance of your log cabin is key if you want it to last a lifetime. 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 walls to breathe – in other words, moisture is not trapped beneath the impermeable paint skin. This ensures the longevity of your log cabin walls.

If you’re going 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!

The great thing about TimberLiving is that no matter where you are in Ireland, there’s a showhouse two hours away. Whether you come to see us in Cork (Carrigaline), Carlow (Tullow) or Roscommon (Boyle). Well worth the trip! You’ll be able to come into our show houses and experience firsthand the quality, comfort and style of our best-quality log cabin buildings.

You won’t find better double-glazed, tilt-and-turn windows or doors from any other Log Cabins Ireland company. And we offer a range of choices when it comes to windows and doors. Have a read of our blog on window choice for your log cabin here:

The insulation you choose is very important for your log cabin. You want the cabin to be warm and easy to heat. That’s why we put a minimum of 100mm of insulation in our walls and roofs. And in the floor, we ALWAYS use PIR (Kingspan) insulation. If a company is putting rock wool in the floor, walk away! Read more about log cabin insulation here;
