Buying A Log Cabin Kit For Your Garden

Feb 22, 2008
The best place to start searching for information on log cabin kits is by going online. As you will soon discover there are plenty of companies who now sell such kits and which can prove to be much more cost effective than having one built from scratch.

The kits that you see advertised will have had all the logs cut, milled, dried and then shaped into a specific log cabin design. Some of the kits available just comprise the logs and fasteners to build the outer walls of the home. Whilst others may include all the exterior and interior components, that one needs in order to make the perfect log cabin.

Yes getting your log cabin built by a craftsman may sound ideal but there are numerous advantages to be had from purchasing one that comes in kit form. As previously mentioned the biggest advantage is that they are much cheaper to purchase and also are a lot quicker and easier to assemble.

The other benefit of buying a log cabin kit is that the manufacturer of these types of homes ensure that the logs are more uniformed in shape. Plus you are not restricted on the shapes of the logs as the manufacturer is able to mill and cut them to any shape that you want. Plus they place a tongue or groove into each log so each one interlocks with another and helps to stop air or water from actually penetrating through its walls.

Before you go out and buy a log cabin kit there are a few things which you need to think about in order to make the right choice. By doing this you will then be able to keep down the cost of the kit that you purchase along with the cost of actually having the kit built. Below we look at what some of these things are.

1. Before you go and buy your kit you need to decide how many rooms it is you want in the property. Remember the more rooms the larger the cabin will and so the more it is going to cost you. Plus do not forget that you need to factor in costs for maintaining, furnishing and providing heat to the property as well.

2. Another important factor you need to take into consideration when thinking about buying a log cabin kit is the amount it is going to cost you to actually build the property. Remember you will need to sometimes hire specialist tradesmen and equipment in order to get the property assembled properly.

3. Also if you can keep your design as simple as possible as the more complicated and intricate the design is the more you will have to pay. Although a cathedral ceiling may look nice it can add quite a lot on to the cost of the various log cabin kits that are available in relation to materials and labour.
