Handcrafted log homes by British Log Cabins
At British Log Cabins we offer a complete log home design and build service. We construct our log homes to full UK building regulations and currently meet level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
A handcrafted log home is the most natural home that you can build and has a minimal carbon footprint. We only use British grown, sustainably sourced timber, generally either Western Red Cedar or Douglas Fir.
Cool in summer and warm in winter - the logs act like a large thermal battery, storing and releasing heat at a slower rate than a conventionally built house. It is important to think about the sustainability of your proposed building and its impact on the local, natural environment. In the specification of our log homes we utilise as many renewable technologies and methods as possible. We strive to be on the cutting edge of sustainable building.
With the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme now in place it makes even more sense to use renewable fuels in the heating of your new home - when using approved renewable heating systems the government will pay you a per Kw of energy that you produce. We specify boilers approved for the RHI scheme as standard.
When designing our log homes we can create stunning design features such as log staircases and handrails, built in furniture and mezzanine floor levels. We can build our log work to any architectural plans, so there is no obligation for us to provide your drawings. If you already have plans that you would like us to quote on please Contact Us
