Design Studio

Abraham Lincoln, probably the most famous person to live in a log cabin once said “give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe”. 


The delivery of a successful project is rooted in the design. At British Log Cabins we understand the importance of getting your design right which is why all of our architectural drawing packages include unlimited revisions.


Because we have an in-house design team, log building methodology and construction techniques are considered from the outset, including structural and energy design. The same team that designs your home also produces the detailed drawings for the construction phase. This allows a smooth workflow from pencil to chainsaw. 


Any size, shape and style from traditional frontier designs to contemporary combinations of timber, glass and stonework. Our staff will work with you to develop your design brief and bring your project to life.
