For our friends across the pond and for ideas for the rest of us, I found this website for Tay Log Cabins in Scotland that sells and builds small Finnish pine cabins. Most of these cabins are meant to be used for camping or as an income generating property, but I can see myself living in one of these pretty cabins. Tay Log Buildings are made from the very best slow growing Finnish pine from the forests of North Karelia, Finland.
These cabins are another example of when you build smaller, you can build with beautiful details. The Hobbit cabin with the use of reclaimed tree stumps and branches really fits in with the surrounding area.
Tay Log Cabins offer:
- Custom made cabins from wood so any design can be achieved
- Planed logs (95mm x 120mm) which can be assembled in standard designs measuring – 3m x 3m or 4m x 4m
- Precision manufacturing for ease of building and come complete with all wooden components and shingle roof
- Free design service
Most of these homes can be built for between £13,000 and £35,000 or $20,000 and $55,000.
Also in the UK is the Log Cabin and Offices Company which builds cabins out of Baltic timber from managed and sustainable forests. Their cabins can be used for summer houses, fishing lodges, garden buildings or offices.
All the cabins are available as supply only, supply and erect, or as a fully finished “Turn Key” project.
