This Blog today is just to speak quickly about timber frame buildings and log cabins, and how they are greatly different.
There are quite a few agents/dealers in the UK- Europe that will offer you a log cabin, and call it a residential building. But the difference between the two is night and day.
A residential building, timber frame, is designed to be a 12-month a year dwelling. A single skin log cabin is not.
In certain countries where rainfall is minimal and the season is hot then very cold, then a single skin 220mm Scandinavian log cabin is great, but in some parts of Europe-UK where the weather is very damp, this kind of structure has its limitations due to rainfall.
When a company offers you a single skin log cabin say in 70mm solid timber and offers to clad the building inside, this still does not get around the moisture issue.
This year we have had hundreds of people call us and ask us if our twin skin log cabins (solid timber) will meet building regulations, and sat tests, etc, and the honest answer is yes, but we need to redesign the whole cabin. And we 9 times out of 10 ask them to look at the timber frame selection, which we have over one hundred designs in our gallery.
Timber frame is truly the only way to go if you are on a budget, and you are looking for super insulted building, which will also last the test of time.
Below are some photos of Timber Frame buildings we have manufactured and built.
