Residential Log Cabins
"Designer Range" of bespoke Log Cabins are manufactured by
time served craftsmen in Slovakia. They have been manufacturing
Residential Log Cabins for over 50 years and have many thousands of
Timber Houses built throughout Europe.
for the Log Cabins
timber used is Central European Spruce, it is very different from
the Spruce found in the UK because of the climate in which it is
grown. These trees are from the Orava area of Slovakia and endure
temperatures of minus 40 degrees in winter and plus 40 degrees in
summer. Before the trees are felled, they are checked with a Giga
Counter, which is to ensure that the timber is not contaminated with
radiation. This has been our standard practice for the last 25 years
because of the strict demands of the Germanic and Swedish markets.
This was even before the disaster of Chernobyl, which caused
widespread radiation contamination of trees, but not in the Orava
trees are only felled in the months of October, November and
December because then the sap has stopped flowing in the tree. This
timber will then provide a very stable and shrink free Log Cabin,
also along with the natural beauty of the Central European Spruce.
The Orava area has seen its trees used for house building for
hundreds of years, but Orava is still an outstandingly beautiful
area, this is because the area is managed by the people and
replanting goes on constantly, it is their way of life.
