Residential Log Cabins
An increasing popular range of log cabins is our residential range. With the economy under pressure, many of us are looking to maximise the potential of the property we live in. You might think that a house extension is the answer. But for a given size and area, a residential log cabin or garden building is dramatically better value for money than a brick and mortar extension. When comparing a residential log cabin from Logcabinslakeland.co.uk to a traditional brick and mortar extension, The planing process will be simpler. The building cost will be lower. The time to build will be quicker. The building will be both warmer and cheaper to heat, and will be ecologically more desirable and sustainable. Need some extra space in your house? An annexe for the teenagers, or just to rent out? Or so you need a year-round home office, even in the depths of winter? Our residential range of log cabins offers flexible space and layout of rooms, combined with an unbeatable design and range of insulation options for that year round use. Logcabinslakeland.co.uk has a range of single and double story ecological and environmental garden buildings and cabins that will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Timber is a natural insulation material in its own right. We have designed an innovative twin skin dual wall structure that has an interlocking inner and outer wall, with a cavity between that can be filled with your choice of insulation material. Add insulation under the floor and in the roof, and you will be warm and snug all year round without paying huge energy bills.

All our residential log cabins are constructed from a unique and innovative twin skin system, using either 44mm, 70mm or 90mm thick logs. These are aligned and interlocked in a dual wall system, with an air gap between the inner and outer wall allowing space for standard thickness insulation products. The result is a water and air tight insulated wall which can exceed the requirements for building regulations in the UK. When combined with insulation under the floor and in the roof, this offers you an unsurpassed degree of comfort and warmth, which is suitable not only for fully and permanently residential buildings (subject to applicable approvals), but also suited to other purposes (which would not require those approvals) such as home offices, occasional residential use, recreational uses such as sports rooms, exercise rooms, snooker rooms, sauna rooms and others. We offer residential log cabins and garden buildings in an amazing range of styles and sizes, with various room layouts and sizes. Most importantly, our internal walls are built from the same interlocking logs as the external walls, and are as strong as the rest of the cabin. Beware other cabins manufacturers and suppliers who might only offer flimsy panel walls fitted after the build is complete. You may be surprised that many people do not consider that they will need to be sure of strong internal walls if they want to have strong and rigid internal doors. So what else should you demand and expect from a residential log cabin? The doors and windows need to be residential standard, and they are. The doors and windows from logcabinslakeland.co.uk are Euro standard windows and doors.

Logcabinslakeland.co.uk has for over 22 years been an experienced leader and innovator in the design and construction of a wide range of buildings and log cabins, including summer houses, Scandinavian log cabins, interlocking log cabins, insulated log cabins, twin skin log cabins, residential log cabins, log cabin saunas, log cabin home offices, log cabin garden buildings, gazebos, log cabin studios and bunkhouses.

We have experienced personnel in the Baltic, and can ensure the highest quality and best value, and you can be assured that we attend to the smallest details personally and locally. So if you are looking for a wide range of log cabins or garden buildings, then look no further than logcabinslakeland.co.uk, because we are confident that you will find what you need right here. At logcabinslakeland.co.uk, we know and understand that a purchase of a new log cabin is a big decision, and one that must be a good investment to increase the value of your home, and improve the appearance of your garden. At logcabinslakeland.co.uk we are confident that you will be amazed and pleased at the value and quality of our cabins. The key points to look at and consider carefully are the floor, the windows and doors, and the timber. Lets start with the floor. Because that is where inferior cabin manufacturers will try to save some money. They will offer 19mm flooring, which to begin with might look great, but as soon as you step onto it, you will feel it bend and bounce, and then you will know you should have looked for a stronger and thicker flooring. At logcabinslakeland.co.uk, we only and always offer 28mm quality tongue and groove flooring as standard. No bend. No bounce. No creaking. Just a quality floor that will last a lifetime. Buy a log cabin with a cheap 19mm floor and you may well regret it with every step. But choose a quality log cabin from logcabinslakeland.co.uk, and every time you step onto the quality floor, you will remind yourself that you are glad you choose logcabinslakeland.co.uk.
Windows And Doors
The quality of the windows and doors of a log cabin vital in ensuring the appearance and definition of quality. Every time you walk up to and into your log cabin you will see and open the door. It will be a pleasure for you, as our log cabin doors will not squeak, twist or warp. At logcabinslakeland.co.uk, we proudly spend time and effort sourcing the best quality and value doors and windows, and this care and attention to detail is your assurance that we offer only the best quality metal fittings, hinges and handles.
At logcabinslakeland.co.uk, we were amongst the very first to offer quality double glazed windows across the whole of our log cabin range (44mm and above), and an option on the smaller cabins. At logcabinslakeland.co.uk, we were the first to offer tilt-turn window mechanisms as standard as part of our double glazed units. We offer quality frames, triple seals, and quality metal hinges, fittings and handles. As a result, our windows open smoothly and quietly, and seal perfectly, to offer you an ecological barrier against the cold, the heat, and of course sound. But most importantly, we not only offer a range of log cabins in various shapes and sizes, but with a variety of window positions. Why? Because more than anything, a range and variety of window shapes, sizes and positions allows you to choose a style of log cabin which is now only just right for you, but which allows you to choose you own log cabin style that suits your very own style and needs. And looks just great into the bargain too.
And of course, the quality of the timber is also a vital ingredient in allowing us at logcabinslakeland.co.uk to offer you a great looking log cabin or garden building with both superb quality and great value. So how do you know to look for quality timber. Well, you have to start with quality trees. The better quality timber is slow grown timber, and to do that, the tree has to grow and love growing in a cold climate. Trees grown in a warmer European climate will grown faster, have fewer and wider growth rings, and ultimately will not be as strong as colder slow grown timber. So you will not be surprised to learn that at logcabinslakeland.co.uk we only offer slow and cold grown Siberian pine and larch. The other advantage to slow grown Siberian timber is that, compared with timber grown in warmer some European climates, there will be fewer side shoots, better know as branches. In timber buildings, side branches are not good, as they produce the knots. Of course a small amount of knots is visually appealing, but too many knots becomes unsightly and ultimately will weaken the building, or even cause floor or roof sections to split or break. So too many knots is a bad thing, and is another reason why we at logcabinslakeland.co.uk only offer slow and cold grown Siberian pine and larch. The quality timber in our log cabins and garden buildings offers you a wonderfully pleasing experience. Only our slow and cold grown Siberian pine and Larch has that smooth touch, that wonderful natural colour, and the unforgettable smell of fresh cut timber. And the better the quality, the more those experiences of touch, smell and looks will last a lifetime.
We have well over 22 years of experience as a leader and innovator in the design and construction of a wide range of buildings and log cabins, including summer houses, Scandinavian log cabins, interlocking log cabins, insulated log cabins, twin skin log cabins, residential log cabins, log cabin saunas, log cabin home offices, log cabin garden buildings, gazebos, log cabin studios and bunkhouses.
