Turn-Key

You: The project manager.
A log-work only package includes just that, the handcrafted log-work, erected to international log building standards on your site, ready for you and your construction team to take the project through to completion with our consultation on finishing details specific to log building.

The sealed shell package is by far our most popular contract. We provide the log work, roof and energy efficient doors and windows so that you can take the project to completion with a roof over your head. We offer options on roof finished and door & window materials.

We offer a cost plus construction contract to manage your log home project to full completion. Our turn key log home specifications are completely customisable right down to the last detail. Every element in your log cabin or log home adds individuality and character and as such should be a personal, intentional choice.

Example prices

The tables below give guideline prices for 2, 3 and 4-bedroom cabin options, with the three levels of completion and three roofing options. All prices are exclusive of VAT and delivery. All cabins include a Plastisol-coated steel roof finish as standard. Please see below for a complete list of standard inclusions and exclusions.   

2-bedroom Homestead

The Homestead is a quaint, unassuming design. Two bedrooms, one main bathroom and a seperate WC off the entry. The design is inspired by farm living with a separate side entry into a boot room and a large open plan kitchen and dining room, focusing the funtionality and buzz of the house around the kitchen table. In line with traditional country living, the lounge/sitting room is closed off, generally reserved for cosy evenings in front of the log fire.

3-bedroom "Bear's Den" Cabin

Designed as a holiday rental, the Bear's Den offers masses of entertaining space and even boasts space for a sauna should you be inclined. The lounge and dining area are set up to make the most of panoramic 180 degree views and are well suited to open out onto an expansive patio or deck. This cabin looks great in both full handcrafted log or post and beam variations and is a versatile shell that we can carve up in many different ways to suit your needs.

4-bedroom Forest Lodge

A 4 bed, 4 bath luxury holiday cabin set over 2 storeys. The first floor lounge room with covered balcony lends itself to expansive views or a tree top woodland retreat. With minor design changes this building also lends itself to being a substantial family home. From the outside, this log home is iconic with plenty of room for design features and log flare.
