Handcrafted woodland cabin with a log burner

This handcrafted log cabin is 7m x 4m and boasts a lovely deck, a log burner and turf roof. Unlike our log homes (which are constructed in our yard prior to delivery) sometimes we get the opportunity to build our woodland cabins in situ, using the trees from the woodland that they sit in...if that is not eco friendly cabin building I don't know what is! That was the case here, in Chepstow where we felled the trees, stripped the bark and scribed the logs all on site. It was a challenging job due to the steep gradient, but this was more than made up for by the views down the Severn estuary.

Our woodland cabin packages are 'log work only' or 'completed', the price guide below explains what is included:

Price Guide

This package allows you to project manage your own woodland 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 woodland cabin 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 (if required)
  • Door and window openings cut and rebated

A completed woodland cabin does exactly as it says, the specification generally includes (log-work only +):
