What’s the log cabin maintenance?

From the very first day the log cabin is built customer have to start supervise the cabin. Log cabin maintenance is the overall upkeep on a log cabin shell to ensure there is proper protection from damaging UV radiation, water damage, air infiltration.

All log cabins EXTERIOR and INTERIOR must be treated within 14 days of completion with wood stain or paints minimum 2 coats to protect from water getting into the timber to prevent from moisture . Apply 3 coats if necessary.

We recommend applying 2 coats of paint every 2 years after. This will help to keep your log cabin look as new and also will protect the timber  log cabin from further wear & tear.

We can supply special treater – preservative and tested paints from Viva Colour which will help to ensure that your cabin stays like new and lasts you many generations. We also will give all the recommendations and advice how to supervise your log cabin in a proper way. It is very important to understand that log cabin maintenance ensures that the log home or log cabin look the way it did the first day it was built.

The benefits of a log cabin?

Log cabins are very popular buildings in United Kingdom, France, Japan, Spain, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Norway, Scotland, Finland, South Africa, Thailand and other countries. Wood is a sturdy and natural building material so if you’re interested in a healthy lifestyle, you should think about owning a log cabin.
Today the building standards that are used for cabins are really high so you will definitely get a top quality, comfortable, energy-efficient, beautiful, healthy, and unique home. If you have a look at our product catalogue, you will notice that there are many options to choose from. What is more, the logs have a great insulation efficiency which allows the cooling and heating units to keep the comfort level inside of the house.
The log cabin is a very comfortable and rustic place for your friends and family members to meet, relax and live. There are many advantages of living in a log cabin and this is why they are so popular in many different countries.
Today, these cabins are preferred by many people because they have comparatively lower pricing than traditionally built brick homes.

Do I need planning permission for the log cabin?

It really does depend on location. Any building over 25 sq/m living area requires planning. Please keep in mind, that EcoHome only provides the log cabin you requested and is not responsible for planning permission, which is the customer’s responsibility. Our advice would be to have a preliminary meeting with your local council to see would there be a problem with planning application for cabin in your area.

What are the benefits?

Trees are Renewable Resource

Long Lasting
Got a know-it-all in the neighborhood who thinks his brick home is durable? Inform him that log and timber homes still in use in Europe routinely date back more than 800 years. And one log-constructed church in Russia is reportedly more than 1,700 years old.

Fit the Land
Since this organic building material comes from nature, the resulting structures blend into the topography like a 10-point buck on opening day. Log homes naturally integrate right into the landscape, rather than being awkwardly imposed on it.

Fast Framing
If you choose to use a precut log system the shell of your home can be framed on site faster than conventional stick framing, which will reduce the likelihood of weather-related damages or mold and mildew issues. With our crew and building system, it can be weather tight and build in as little as two weeks—for an average sized home. In conventional construction, your home is exposed to the elements for far longer, which could lead to mold issues within framing of the home, where it can thrive undetected for years.

Warmth of Wood
Warm to the touch (as opposed to the always chilly sheetrock), wood has something called “thermal mass,” a natural property in the logs that helps keep inside temperatures of homes comfortable in all seasons. This allows log walls to collect and store energy, then radiate it back into the home.

Super Energy Efficient
Provided the home is sealed properly (between the foundation and the first course of logs, between log-to-log connections and where the roof system meets the log wall), you can have a super energy efficient home. This means it will be 30% more efficient than what building codes call for, saving you serious coin over the life of the home. “Today we can build a log and timber home to be 15 to 20 percent more energy efficient than a conventional home,” says builder Mike Gingras, owner of Seven North Log Homes in New Haven, Vermont, who has designed and built Energy Star-rated log and timber homes for the past 18 years.

What is the lead time when order is placed?

Once everything agreed and ready to place an order after costumer pay deposit to start the order we are willing to come and build your project between 8-12 weeks time . Times can change depending on season and logistics but we always will do our best and deliver your log cabin at the time you need .
