A Real Log Cabin at a Competitive Price

LOG CABIN DESCRIPTION

Our Log Cabins

We offer log cabins from about 200 to 1,000 square feet (and bigger if the design allows), with or without a loft. Depending if a building permit is needed or not, we can sell our cabins either as a log frame only, or complete with the roof system and doors and windows.

LOG FRAME

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

ROOF SYSTEM

Roof rafters range from 2″ x 6″ to 2″ x 12″ 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
Steel insulated man doors are used for the exterior and pine doors for the interior. 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

We can provide the layout plan and specifications for the wood floor. If no building permit is required, we can deliver and install the wood floor with the customer’s help.

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 is available in northwestern Canada. Please inquire about our rates. All other destinations require a shipping company and rates are available upon request.

Building Code Info and
Requirements for Log Structures

In 2015, the National Building Code introduced significant changes regarding the R-value of log constructions. Since 2016, it is mandatory to hire a general contractor to build a house or cabin, if a building permit is required. Engineered plans are needed for any log structure, in order to get a building permit. –  Info: bchousing.org

Information is available from the Regional District you are planning to build in. If a building permit is needed, we can only build and setup the log frame, and supply the T&G boards for the insulated log wall system for the outside wall to meet the required R-value.
