When you’re considering a log home as a permanent residence, it’s easy to leap ahead and picture it all: find your perfect plot, build your log home and move in. What could be simpler?
In fact, a residential log home faces the same hurdles as a bricks-and-mortar home: Planning Permission, Building Regulations, expensive foundations… the list goes on.
However, here at WoodPro we can keep your plans on track, with the perfect answer to that “What could be simpler?” question. We do have a simpler solution. It’s faster and more economical, yet still gives you the log home you want to enjoy and be proud of.
Our garden log cabins use solid interlocking tongue and groove cladding. This is where a short tongue is cut on one edge of timber which then joins to a corresponding groove that runs along the length of the timber.
The interlocking log can provide the outdoor building with not only strength and durability, but may also provide your log cabins with protection against the harsh elements as the interlocking grooves means there is no gap in between each siding meaning weather such as rain, snow and hail are unlikely to make their way into your outdoor building.
Alternatively, for increased protection other than the cladding type, and a potentially longer life span, why not try treating your log cabin. One effective way being pressure treated, which will be low maintenance and potentially money saving further down the line.
