At EcoHome Log Cabins we provide standard and bespoke design log cabins that will suit your needs and offer great value for money. Our goal is to continually deliver on our high standards of cabin quality. Our timber cabins are built to the highest European standards. We have over 30 years of experience and our premium quality cabins are made from Scandinavian spruce and are built to last a lifetime!
At Ecohome we have sourced the highest quality cabins available in Europe and we offer them to you, delivered, built and well insulated. Our Ecohome log cabins are manufactured and built from the finest quality Scandinavian spruce.
Our top quality cabins are made using profiled interlocking beams. In our assembly process we use the newest machines which guarantee efficiency, high quality and accuracy. We continuously invest in our design and production facilities to ensure that our products meet the high expectations of our customers. This investment in technology and efficiency allows us to keep up with newest trends and evolution of our customers’ needs.
All of our log houses are made of kiln dried pine and spruce, well known for their strength and durability. The production process involves several stages of wood processing and preparation for final inspection and packing. Our cabins are completely finished in factory and require no extra processing.
Our cabins are specifically designed for the harsh Irish climate with damp-proof membranes and extra window seals and sealants. Our cabin foundations are designed to prevent moisture seeping into the structure. This ensures a longer lifespan and prevents mound, mildew and wood rot.
Timber is a material that can naturally hold heat, which means you will be spending less on heating bills. Timber also has thermal mass which means that your Ecohome log cabin will be able to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year ensuring better insulation while using less energy. Our Log cabins are approximately 30% more energy efficient than a traditional extension. It has never been easier to reduce your impact on the environment while expanding your existing property.
At Ecohome we also aim to do everything we can for the environment and all the timber we use in the construction of our cabins is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). No timber is wasted as even the offcuts are used in glue laminate manufacturing – and sawdust is reconstituted into wood pellets for stoves.
As long as you treat your log cabin correctly, there is no reason why it will not last a lifetime. The high quality, kiln dried Scandinavian Spruce timber we use is as good as it gets when it comes to timber for construction. These trees are very slow growing, and the grain is super-tight, so there will be no warping or bending in your log cabin walls, floors or roof.
Our show houses are located right in the middle of the country in Tullamore, Co. Offaly. You can come into our beautifully decorated show houses and experiences first-hand the quality, comfort and style of our premium quality log cabins.
