Our log cabin kits comply with and surpass UK building control regulations as they have been designed for the harsh climate of Finland. Our log house kits are extremely efficient in terms of heat retention (warm in winter, cool in summer) and are therefore suitable for year round dwelling/work.
As our solid log buildings meet the criteria for sustainable development, we believe that they represent a credible, greener alternative to common construction methods. Carbon dioxide which is absorbed during the life of a tree is locked up in wood products. The log house kits can be built on pillar foundations and therefore the use of concrete and cement is minimal compared to a bricks and mortar house. Apart from environmental issues, this also saves in construction costs, especially on a sloping site.
We have a wide range of log sizes in keeping with the proportions of your house, allowing the perfect combination of aesthetics and strength. All the thicknesses of logs are designed the same way, with double tongue and groove connections for a strong and secure fit. Thus the interlocking logs fit together to create an immensely strong exterior and interior walls.
As a result of our log home kits being produced in a high-tech factory, it is possible to manipulate log house designs to make them the right size and layout for you, giving a bespoke, customised log cabin kit at around the same cost per spare metre as standard designs. This allows you to incorporate ideas you may have liked in other buildings into your own home or integrate the unique needs of your site into the building.
We have enormous confidence in the quality of the log houses that we supply and welcome visits from potential customers. Please contact us to arrange a visit; or even better – book in for a week and experience for yourself what it is really like to live in a log house.
These can be seen at www.bigskylodges.co.uk . It is possible to come visit them on Saturdays and have a look around inside, allowing you to see built examples of our log cabin kits and what the floor plans look like in real life.We think that Mountain Lodge Homes is unique in being able to offer this service.
Clients can see exactly the quality they can expect to receive when their own log house kit arrives. Previous potential customers who have seen our houses, but have consequently ordered a cheaper product elsewhere on the assumption that one log house is much the same as another, have invariably been disappointed. The usual difference is the size of the logs, the strength of the roof and the quality of windows and doors. Our log homes are normally constructed from logs 95mm or larger depending on the the size of the log home, although 70mm logs may be an option. The roof is immensely strong and is constructed from 50 x 150mm rafters overlaid with T & G sarking.
