Intro to Log Cabins

In Ireland we have an abundance of concrete built homes, so much so that other structure types struggle to get a look in when it comes to new builds. Modern log cabin companies offer exceptional insulation packages.

Suppliers offer multiple designs when it comes to wall thickness and insulation packed cavity-style walls are becoming the norm.

It is not unusual to look for something different when going for a one-off build and with this in mind many log cabin companies can tailor your build to suit :

  • Your location
  • Your space needs
  • Exterior design features
  • Insulation demands
  • Window styles and insulating properties
  • Even the number of floors ⁄ levels and balconies

Once a choice for an extra room or office a log cabin can now be a full extension or a two storey house. You decide.

Better still, some of the Irish specialist providers will give you the option of throwing away the catalogue & will build your design.

Points to note

  • When buying, ensure you have full agreement on paper of what you are getting for your money. Doors & Window specs. / Wall depths and insulation fill etc.
  • Find out if/what planning permission is required – contact your local authority’s planning office if you are in any way unsure.
