Forest Lodge

All Western Red Cedar log work, this log cabin is 1.5 storey with an upstairs balcony. You can find a plan of this handcrafted log home in a 3 bedroom or 4 bedroom configuration on our design page.

We extended this handcrafted log cabin in 2012 using a system of our own design which allows for separate shrinkage in both parts of the building. At BLC we produce the best handcrafted log cabins UK wide.
Please see the price guide below for example prices of this cabin as a 3 bedroom home.

Price Guide

This package allows you to project manage your own build, BLC construct the log framework to the agreed designs and then erect the cabin on your footings. All other works can either be completed by you or by local tradesmen. This is a very cost effective method as you can acquire different quotes for each element of the building, combining trades and maybe even a bit of DIY. A log work only package also allows you to personally specify the materials involved in your home down to the last screw. This package generally includes:
  • All logs hand scribed and built to your designs
  • Pitched roof - handcrafted post and purlin
  • Delivery to UK mainland
  • Re-erection of the log-work on your footings
  • Sheep’s wool insulation between each log
  • Treatment of log cabin with timber preservative
  • All wires chased through logs for electrical installation
  • Door and window openings cut and rebated
In this scenario, BLC build the log work shell and also construct an insulated roof and fit the doors and windows. Interior finishes are left to your discretion including plumbing, electrical, kitchen and bathroom installations.
This package generally includes (log-work only +):
  • Completed roof (Cedar shingle, Natural slate, Turf, Tile or other)
  • Multi-foil roof insulation (certified to achieve a U-Value of 0.18)
  • A* rated Softwood, double glazed doors and windows
  • Cedar facias
  • Aluminium guttering
  • Cedar soffits
  • Fitment of all of the above on site
