Log Cabin UK also uses traditional Scandinavian log house techniques to build cabins, hand scribed cabins can only be used for building which do not require building authority approval .
In hand scribed construction we hand select the best trees and have them felled and cut to the required length. We then remove the bark and any large knots, then select which large logs to have milled in half for sill logs. These form the base layer of the cabin.
The walls are constructed by laying logs one on top of another, a tight seal between the logs is achieved by scribing the profile of the log below, on to the one above.
At the corners of the building the logs walls interlock to form a solid sealed joint. Once the walls have reached a required height, the openings for all doors and windows can be cut.
Roof construction can be post and beam, log gable end or log truss. The type of roof structure would depend on the pitch of the roof and covering that you, the client, prefers.
