How energy efficient are log cabins?

Solid log structure are known for their excellent thermal qualities. This is because heat is trapped in the mass cellular structure of the wood, making it a natural insulator. These properties retard the transfer of heat (and therefore also loss of heat) and also sound, maintaining comfortable temperature throughout the year.


With the round log buildings these come with 200mm thick logs, unless stated otherwise. Laminated wood structures vary in thickness with the models. The roof and floor also have a very good insulation quality.
