On the surface log cabins may all look similar but when you look into the different options like log thickness, doors, windows, internal wood finishes etc. they can be very different. What you get for your money will vary significantly depending on where you purchase. The Irish log cabin market is mostly made up from imported suppliers and foreign sales offices, selling third party buildings to which they have no control over the quality and consistency. Log structures are designed from the very simple basis of weight bearing down on weight, in other words the width, height and length of the log plays a very large roll in whether your log cabin will do its job over time or not. Then there is the max length of the log for its size, in simple terms, if the log is too long, not heavy enough and too thin it will crack, warp and twist leaving you with a structure that is not fit for purpose. Here is a handy guide to getting the correct balance of both from our prospective.
