Log Cabin Wall Log Details
A number of different widths of walling are available for interlock log cabins.
- 34, 44mm Timber Walls – Ideal for sheds or storage rooms. This width of timber is robust enough to offer protection against the elements and secure enough to keep your bikes, garden equipment or other belongings out of harm’s way.
- 60, 70mm Timber Walls – Walls of this width are ideal for residential cabins, garden rooms, summer houses, offices, workshops, and pavilions that are to be used all year round.
- 90mm Timber Walls – Extremely sturdy log walls of this width are great for lowering winter heating costs. This thick timber helps considerably with heat retention and can provide a better insulated and more luxurious environment. Thicker logs such as these also offer better sound insulation. For the ultimate in durability, warmth and security, walls this thick might be something to consider.
We offer a choice of 44mm or 70mm thick interlock wall logs.
The wall logs that we offer have a double tongue and groove profile for extra strength. The walls lock together securely at the corners of the log cabin structure. The prefab kits for our log cabins allow you to create a solid and wind-proof garden building.
The thickness of the walls provides strength to the structures and natural insulation to help keep the log cabin to a comfortable and more consistent temperature.
44mm wall logs are suitable for log cabins of most sizes and styles. They can be straight cut or chamfered at the ends. They are sturdier over longer spans than thinner logs. While they are fine, however, for home offices, hobby spaces etc., you may like to consider thicker walls if the cabin is to be for full-time residential use.
70mm wall logs are also great of log cabins of a range of sizes and styles. While these will provide a little extra strength and protection, these are still not really ideal for cabins for full-time residential use. Since 70mm logs have to be cut from the top of the tree, they are rarer and we cannot be so choosy. You should note, therefore, that 70mm wall logs usually have more shakes (small splits) in them. These logs are always cut straight at the ends.
By now, you should have a much clearer idea of what we offer with our interlock log cabins. You should also have a better picture of how easy it is to construct cabins made from interlocking parts.
