For many years logcabins have been manufactured from just single plank natural fibered timber, (we now have quality laminated timber ) and as we all know timber tends to do its own thing once its machined! Firstly there is the drying process of the timber logs, then the cutting/machining of the timber, and which machine is used, also are the blades sharp, and is the operator skilled, This then determines if the timber is fit for purpose to be or is it fire wood! If the timber is cut badly, and the machinist did not follow the grain on cutting your logs for your logcabin , the timber will be twisted, or if the doors of the kiln were opened too quickly! Actually there are so many reasons why timber can twist, so the cheap manufacturers want to hide this problem from the public. So how do they hide from you twisted logs in your cabin walls? Optical illusions, what you thought was decorative is in fact a way to conceal twisted logs, so! they cut the end of the log, which then gives you zero focus point on the wall log end( the notched area) . Sadly a lot of the manufactures in the UK are using local Pine/Spruce from the local surrounding forests, the timber is very young, which will lead to twisting.Thats one reason why they are cheap! Profit comes before Quality!
European Pine/Spruce is a lot older, tougher tighter grained timber! European Pine and Spruce is grown in harsher climats that lead to a far more dense timber Do not settle for less!
All our Log Cabins have a full end logs, we have always made our log cabins with untampered Log ends, as we believe in Quality, not Quantity!
We always check our logs, floor,roof boards plus our windows and doors moisture content on all our cabins, making sure every Log cabin is as best as it can be!
Beware of cheap, as cheap = Problems!
