A Real Log Cabin at a Competitive Price

LOG CABIN DESCRIPTION

Our Log Cabins

We offer log cabins from 100 to 900 square feet, with or without a loft.

We can provide and set up our cabin kits (log frame, roof system, doors and windows) if NO building permit is required.

If a building permit is required, we can only prepare and set up the log frame.

LOG FRAME

Our log cabins are constructed with saddle notch corner connections. The cabins are built from air dried 3+1/8”x 6¼” milled double tongue & groove (T&G) spruce logs. The saddle notches are cut with our log notching machine, which ensures a precise and tight fit for every connection. Each log row is securely fastened with log screws. The cabins with a loft either have a wood stair case or a wood ladder. The loft joists are  3 ¼” x 6 ½” timber beams with dovetails. The loft floor boards are either 2×6 or 2×8 T&G boards, which finishes the ceiling underneath. Door and window cutouts are all routed out to fit a 3”x 2” board for stiffening up the openings.

ROOF SYSTEM

Roof rafters range from 2″ x 6″ to 2″ x 10″ depending on the width and roof pitch of the cabin. Recreational cabins include R-22 insulation with higher insulation values available upon request. The interior ceiling is finished with 3/8″ plywood or, for an extra cost, 1″ x 6″ T&G boards. The exterior roofing material is sheet metal, which is available in a variety of colors.

*The roof system and doors and windows are only available for recreational cabins without a building permit.

DOORS AND WINDOWS

Exterior doors are steel insulated man doors. Windows are double pane vinyl sliding windows with mosquito screen. Doors and windows come with inside wood frames and outside trim.

*The roof system and doors and windows are only available for recreational cabins without a building permit.

FOUNDATION

Concrete pillars or pads, cast in place concrete footings or metal screws must be installed by the customer according to our plans.

WOOD FLOOR

If no building permit is required we can provide the layout plan and specifications for the wood floor.

ASSEMBLY

The assembly takes about 3 – 11 days, depending on the size of the cabin, and accessibility and location of the building site. We offer setup assistance with our crew for an extra fee, in cooperation with local help, provided by the customer.

DELIVERY

Delivery is available in northwestern Canada. Please inquire about our rates. All other destinations require a shipping company.

Turnaround time is approx. 7 – 12 weeks from the day of order and received deposit, depending on prior confirmed orders and active projects.

Building Code Info and
Requirements for Log Structures

In 2015, the National Building Code introduced significant changes regarding energy efficiency requirements of log construction dwellings. Since 2016, it is mandatory to hire a general contractor OR obtain an owner builder authorization (for info visit the website:  ownerbuildertraining.com) in order to build a dwelling, if a building permit is required. Engineered plans are needed for any log structure, in order to acquire a building permit.

Information is available from your local building authority / Regional District (civicinfo.bc.ca/regionaldistricts) where you are planning on building in. If a building permit is required for your project, BC Log Cabins Inc. can only supply and install the log frame of the cabin and provide the tongue & groove (T&G) boards for the insulated wall system.
