About our cabins

Extremely hardy, precision cutting, strong structures

All of our cabins are made using slow grown Siberian spruce sourced from well managed, sustainable forests located in the Siberian mountains. Due to the very cold climate in which the spruce grows it does so very slowly giving it a tighter grain meaning it is extremely hardy and less prone to warping, twisting or cracking. The timber is then kiln dried to remove moisture to allow for the precision cutting required for the interlocking design used in the construction of the cabins.

Our log cabins are constructed using a simple interlocking plank system just like a giant 3D jigsaw puzzle. All planks are a continuous length meaning there are no joins and therefore eradicating any areas of weakness in the structure. The planks knit together using a double tongue and grooved wind lock system that is a natural barrier to the elements and is available as standard on all our cabins.

We were thrilled to see our bespoke cabin be built in just 2 days. We’ve been using it as an office, for crafts and a general living space. We’re enjoying it so much that we decided to have Christmas dinner in there.  People have even commented how quiet it is on the outside when we’re loud on the inside, not something we generally hear with 4 kids in the house”

Thickness of walls

Our cabins are available in range of wall thickness. Depending on how often, what time of year and what you intend to use your cabin for will determine which is the best wall thickness for you but as a general rule of thumb 34mm-44mm cabins are best suited to spring/summer/autumn with all other options being suitable for all year round use.
