How long do residential log cabins last?

Log Cabins are durable, strong and reliable

That’s a good question, and a very important one. People in Ireland are not familiar with Timber Buildings: we were nearly all brought up in block built houses. but a log cabin, built with the highest quality timber, and with the highest quality design, will last you a very long time. As long as you maintain the exterior of your log house, keeping it dry, it will last a lifetime.

They make boats out of wood

They make boats out of wood, and they last a long, long time, putting up with the ravagers and corrosiveness of seawater. So why not make log cabins out of timber? Timber houses are half the cost of block built houses because the on-site labour is so much less. All of our houses are produced in a Hi-Tech factory, using precision engineering methods to produce every piece of wood required for our log homes, cut accurately to the millimetre. Visit our showrooms and see if you can find any piece of timber that was hand cut during the construction. You’ll be searching a long time!

Can you paint a log cabin home?

Once the exterior of your cabin is treated properly, your cabin will last a lifetime. But what about log cabin paint? Actually, you don’t use paint for your log cabin, you use a stain. We recommend using Sikkens. Have a read about our Log Cabin blog in relation to log cabin paint here.
