Summer Cottages

Summer Cottage -log cabins

Through out Finland there are a staggering 152.000 lakes, around these pristine lakes are situated many thousands of sauna summer cottages.

Sauna in Finland is seen as the ideal way of rejuvenating the skin, getting rid of toxins and relaxing after a hard days work. Baths are not a common place in Finnish houses or apartments.

Therefore, when the Fin’s travel to their summer cottages at the weekends, or on their annual leave, sauna is a huge part of that vacation experience.

Incorporating a sauna into a summer cottage needs to be thought out well, as the whole family will participate, which means their could be as many as 10 to 20 people enjoying an evening in the woods, having BBQ a few beers, Sauna and midnight swim.

Around the summer, cottages could be many small interlocking log cabins to accommodate friends and family, so interlocking log cabins, or timber frame cabins are very popular in Finland.

Most summer cottages are fully insulated, and some can be as large as 250 sq meters, depending on the plot size! Triple Glazing and strong roofs are necessary due to snowfall, below temperatures, and the occasional bear waking up and foraging, and the most popular route into a cottage by bears is through the roof!

It is very important that when manufacturing a summer cottage one begins to think about what kind of timber to use, in the old days it would have been solid logs, round, hand sawn and quite a crude structure. More refined summer cottage cabins came to fruition in the 60’s and 70’s, and then in the 80’s quality interlocking structures were popping up all over the lakeshores. These are manufactured from quality pine logs and from then until now nothing much has changed in design or quality.

We have looked at traditional summer cottages and believe that by using an Engineered 220mm x 200mm Glulam log, this will be sufficient to keep the cold out, will stand the test of time with the scorching summers and extremely cold winters.

We have taken some time in redesigning a few of the most popular designed summer cottages, and giving them a make over….

At the beginning of February, we will be offering the Finnish public a New log cabin website. On offer will be the whole LV range, including our new Summer Cottage Range.

Do not settle for less!

Logcabins.lv has over many, many years designed some incredibly amazing buildings, which now adorn many garden spaces through out Europe and the World!

Of course our Clock House is very much on top of the list, but there are many other designs that are solely ours, the Garden Office 5m x 4m in 44mm, the Twin Skin Garden Log Cabin Office 5.5m x 5.5m in 44mm x 44mm, in fact we were the first company ever to offer Twin Skins Log Cabins!

Last week we noticed this was written on a dealers website in the UK!

 

(If you have seen a particular log cabin size or style that you like maybe elsewhere, chances are it was a copy of one of ours in the first place, but you may also wish to take advantage of our extreme flexibility in design and make some minor or major changes )

( I think the guy that wrote this has a very serious drink problem, as why would he say that no doubt its there design , if the log cabin is not on his website?)

The reason we are highlighting this text, is that it tells you that this company has no desires to design, innovate, test or try, they just want to copy! And they are too tight to even to hire a qualified Architect to design at least a few different designs, this company, steer clear of!

 

When designing log cabins, timber buildings, the process is quite a long and difficult one, firstly we must make sure the walls are strong enough to hold up the roof, as mother nature put’s strain on all buildings be them brick or timber in many different ways.

 

When designing a log cabin from solid timber, we always make sure that the trusses are super thick, super strong. In addition, there is a lot more thought going into a log cabin than just if the building is functional ,design, sturdy, safe and priced well, we also have to take into account timber use!

 

Quality timber should be used with respect, and when designing any log cabin, timber frame building, camping pod, glulam log cabin, what ever, it is imperative that we use our timber resources and not waste them!

Unlike most balk manufactures of log cabins, we do not under size on timbers to boost profits, what we do is look at all our unique designs and work out what that cabin needs and to make sure that cabin is the best it can be, and we are famous for the best quality interlocking log cabins now in the World, be them solid or Glulam!!

Logcabins.lv is now expending into Finland, as sadly even the Finn’s with all their wood and expertise cannot match us on quality and price!

We are please to announce that we will be offering a brand new range of sauna cabins, which you can live in!

Our New Sauna Log Cabins are not just amazing value for money, also they are manufactured from our graded glulam logs, which just happen to be the best glulam graded logs in the business, there is no other company on the net with better!
