  • Builder Eric: Gaps in the log cabin

    Log cabins can be installed at any time of the year. We are still busy in Autumn and Spring as well as Winter. Then it comes to the summer and the hottest months of the year like July and August.

This is better quality and less prone to shrinkage and indeed it does not shrink much in length.  However, it can shrink in height from the installation to the summer. You might ask where these gaps are coming from and why are there complaints coming from customers? Well it is an easy question to answer.

  • Builder Eric's: Mold And Condensation Problems With Log Cabins

    So What About Mold? If there is one thing to tell you about mold, it is that it loves moisture. Exposure to natural elements can cause moisture problems that can in turn lead to mold. If moisture is present due to a leak or it seeps into a surface like wood, mold can grow easily. Mold can therefore become present in log cabins for this reason. So What About Condensation? Log cabins are created from a natural product, in the wood and timbers used. Depending on the treatment that has been used on the wood, these timbers can naturally increase and decrease in size throughout the seasons. This is also dependent on the climate; as the climate around it changes, the moisture in the cabin changes. Think about when you are at home on a cold day. The outside is cold, but you have built up the warm... (More)
