Summer Cottage -log cabins

Through out Finland there are a staggering 152.000 lakes, around these pristine lakes are situated many thousands of sauna summer cottages.

Sauna in Finland is seen as the ideal way of rejuvenating the skin, getting rid of toxins and relaxing after a hard days work. Baths are not a common place in Finnish houses or apartments.

Therefore, when the Fin’s travel to their summer cottages at the weekends, or on their annual leave, sauna is a huge part of that vacation experience.

Incorporating a sauna into a summer cottage needs to be thought out well, as the whole family will participate, which means their could be as many as 10 to 20 people enjoying an evening in the woods, having BBQ a few beers, Sauna and midnight swim.

Around the summer, cottages could be many small interlocking log cabins to accommodate friends and family, so interlocking log cabins, or timber frame cabins are very popular in Finland.

Most summer cottages are fully insulated, and some can be as large as 250 sq meters, depending on the plot size! Triple Glazing and strong roofs are necessary due to snowfall, below temperatures, and the occasional bear waking up and foraging, and the most popular route into a cottage by bears is through the roof!

It is very important that when manufacturing a summer cottage one begins to think about what kind of timber to use, in the old days it would have been solid logs, round, hand sawn and quite a crude structure. More refined summer cottage cabins came to fruition in the 60’s and 70’s, and then in the 80’s quality interlocking structures were popping up all over the lakeshores. These are manufactured from quality pine logs and from then until now nothing much has changed in design or quality.

We have looked at traditional summer cottages and believe that by using an Engineered 220mm x 200mm Glulam log, this will be sufficient to keep the cold out, will stand the test of time with the scorching summers and extremely cold winters.

We have taken some time in redesigning a few of the most popular designed summer cottages, and giving them a make over….

At the beginning of February, we will be offering the Finnish public a New log cabin website. On offer will be the whole LV range, including our new Summer Cottage Range.

Even though we supply impregnated 70 x 70 mm wall and 70 x 45 mm floor bearers with all our garden log cabins, we still recommend building these cabins on a concrete pad with water resistant film to avoid water damage from the wet ground. Alternatively, on a Quick Base post system.

The body is graded Baltic or Siberian pine (spruce), which we can offer in 34mm 44mm, 70mm or 90mm interlocking timber logs. Or if you’d like it insulated we can also make it twin skin out of 34mm or 44mm timber logs with very good rock wool insulation between timber log walls. We could manufacture this little cabin in 28mm logs but normally we strongly advice our customers not to order this wall thickness cabins from anybody because 28mm is a floor board and can’t be taken as a construction timber, this kind of timber is not very durable.

Many suppliers sell similar cabins in this thickness so be vigilant that it is well made and not a mass produced log cabin. Our honest recommendation is Don’t go with anything below 34mm or 44mm for a single skin solid log cabin if you are not certain about the company you are thinking of buying from!
