Log Cabin Focus – Ascot Chalet Log Cabin (T24 XL)

Today we will focus on the Ascot XL Log Cabin (6.5m x 7.0m), although it is really the Ascot Log Cabin on steroids. Both have the Swiss cottage feel from the from, with the same low roof, but the XL has an additional two bedrooms at the back of the chalet.

Log Cabin

The wall construction can be in 45mm or 60mm double tongue & groove or in 95mm triple tongue & groove logs. As is usual the logs are Northern Spruce. The Thicker log gives more natural insulation, therefore cost less for heating.

Log CabinThere is a gallery style kitchen area, large enough for two people to prepare a feast. A window to the side allows natural light to illuminate the worktops and a breakfast bar makes for an excellent kitchen pass.

Log CabinThis Log Cabin has a shower room, with window. Although the  eaves in this log cabin from the outside seem low there is plenty room inside for a corner shower cubital.

Then there are the two double sized bedrooms at the back of the lodge. Both can be the same size or you can increase the size of one has is the case here. Either way you have the makings of a great family weekend house.

What happens if you don’t want a weekend house?

Well in that case you have the makings of a great office, or shop, or garden room with both man cave and she shed areas!

Still not convinced, well the high quality of the logs (with little or no finger joints) and only using the best of the timber makes this building premium. Yes, you’ll only get the best from us. So you can buy with confidence. The German fittings are the same standard as most of our chalets with double glazing, tilt & turn, windows throughout.

Like all our LOG cabins, these can be fully customised to whatever ideas you have so when investing a substantial amount of money, it is important that you get it right first time. All cabins come with a treated base frame so this protects the bottom of the cabin but the rest of the timber MUST be treated as soon as possible. As wood is natural material; it expands, moves and contracts all the time so it is important that the timber is treated properly as soon as possible. It is worth treating inside cabins as well before you fit it out.

Log Cabin – Tiny House

The use of Log Cabins as a tiny house is a movement that is taking the world by storm. In Scotland the Hutter’s have been building small dwellings for many years and now this has seen a revival, see http://www.thousandhuts.org/, for more information on hutting in Scotland.

So what is the benefits of a Log Cabin Tiny House, think of the following.

Cost of buying a Log Cabin

When your budget is an issue you need to make efficient use of both your money and space. The Log Cabin is the perfect option. Not only is it cheap to make, ours are made from Scandinavian Spruce, but they go together easily so the construction is DIY.

Custom Build Log Cabin

There is no need to build a flat pack house and change it as you build. You can design your own log cabin and get us to make your log cabin to our specifications. Yes, down to the millimetre in size if needed. Our precision instruments will cut the timber and notch it so it will slot together. Need an extra window after its built, no worries, just cut the wood out and the fit the window. Single glazed windows can be bought then upgraded or just buy a double glazed log cabin.

There is even the option of buying a large log cabin the same size as a mobile home. Log Cabins can be classed as mobile homes and in certain circumstances only carry 5% VAT, ask us about this possibility.

All these reasons make a Log Cabin a perfect option for a Tiny House.

Where can I build a Tiny House in the UK

Planning permission may not be required as log cabins do not need fixed to the ground. Making your job much easier to build what you need.

If you require to have herders to stay on site with your animals then there are routes for gaining log cabin planning permission.

Heating a Log Cabin

So you have got your log cabin and now your thinking – how do you heat a log cabin? Well, there are as many different ways as there are ways to heat a house, even if you are heating a tiny house. For example we have below a wood burner in the tiny house. It does need to be big. A log cabin can be heated with 2 kW to 6kW, but you could have your wood burner to heat your water. So your now getting to the point where you have an off the grid log cabin, but that is for another day.

The Finman Retreat Glamping Cabin was very well received. Many customers thought it was a great alternative to the normal Glamping Hut and offered more room. Its accommodation was suitable for a family of four but it could easily be adjusted for a couple, or bunk house. The options are endless…..ok, there is quite a few variations. Making this a very versatile Glamping pod for a camp site or holiday park.

With space for kitchen, shower room, dinning area and beds for four this will give a quick return on your investment which will allow a continuous construction of huts. Come and see us at our show site in Glasgow for a more in detail look at the hut.
