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.
