Cabin insulation is a big factor in heat retention and should be paramount with any cabin install if it is decided that you want this option. We only use twin foiled PIR rigid insulation boards to achieve the highest level of heat retention with our cabins. Our Knowledgable staff will advise you on the right choice for the cabin you require based on its intended usage.
Windows & Doors
When it comes to the doors and windows chosen for your cabin it is crucial during the install process that these are set level and plumb and bedded in expanding foam once placement is finalised this keeps the frames and structure of the doors and window in tact while keeping out drafts around the openings before they are internally trimmed out.We use expanding foam on all our cabin installations as a standard practice as it acts as an insulation and firming aid ensuring minimal movement over time from use of windows and doors.
The base of a log cabin is the most important part of any log cabin build and should be a flat area that is minimum of 2″ above the ground and level. You can choose a concrete slab, paving, timber frame, decking or 4″ blocks. Damp course in the form of heavy gauge plastic can be used before the installation of your cabin creating a vapour barrier beneath the floor area. The best and most reliable base for a cabin is the concrete slab as it offers the very best form of support to both the cabin and insulation within the floor of your cabin. Over time pads can sink and the end result is a leaking cabin. We highly recommend a concrete slab base for any and all log cabin installs. Our proffesional grounds team can handle all of this if required. please consult with our representative as to the best solution for your particular situation.
