Log houses have always been built because they keep the heat well, are ecological and beautiful. Log as a construction material gives the opportunity to create natural and healthy living environment, breathable and energy-efficient home.
LOG AS A CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL
Building our log homes we use logs as much as possible. Frame walls are used only when logs are not an option. Logs allows to use complementary materials such as large glass surfaces, stones, gypsum boards or wood paneling. External walls of the log cabins are possible to insulate from inside or outside. You can choose between the logs of different sizes and between the laminated or massive log walls for your log house.

Construction time of a log house
Building time depends on several factors, of which the most important ones are the size, complexity and location of the design. It takes around 1 month to complete the foundation and 40 days to built the exterior solution of an average 150 m2 house. Interior works takes around 2-3 months.
Clients who want to save up on expences, but not at the expense of quality, we recommend to order a weather-proof exterior solution.
