  • 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.

  • How to Grow Artichokes

    Did you know that artichokes are thistles? This discovery comes as a surprise to many people. However, that is not to say that they are not tasty. These plants do best in mild climates such as those present in the Mediterranean, and they have a hard time surviving in cold weather. Thus, you will find that in some places growth takes place annually while in others, their growth is perennial. The good thing about having a wooden shed is that you can regulate the temperatures to make the conditions suitable for the healthy growth of artichokes. The one thing that farmers have to do, regardless of the climate, is frequent fertilization of these plants as they require many nutrients to thrive.

  • 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)
  • How To Take Care Of Garden Trees

  • The Assembling of Shelves, Furniture, Equipments To Log Cabin Walls - The Do's & Don'ts

    When it comes to the log cabin designs, there will be a slight change in the height of the individual wall logs, based on how much moisture has developed in the wood. Due to this change in height, this shrinkage could potentially be approximately +/- 20mm.  We accept this as natural in nature. As a result of such changes, it is therefore important that great care is taken when furniture and equipment are attached to the wall. There is a risk of damage to the equipment and large gaps that could develop in the walls, should these guidelines be ignored. We cannot stress the importance of following the correct methods that allow for a satisfactory installation. See below: - A choice of using wall brackets as fittings is suitable, provided that the brackets only cross one or two logs. - Shoul... (More)
