There are many different styles of log cabins which can be adopted during the design and build process. In this blog,
For example, the full scribe technique is a popular option for many. This process involves layering the planks of wood horizontally generally without a frame. Shrinkage and tightening of the wood over time creates a strong, resilient building.
Another architectural method for constructing a garden cabin room or barbeque lodge is chinking. This is similar to the full scribe, but this way of building involves adding a mortar, or chink, in between each plank of wood. Watertight and weatherproof, outdoor huts and gazebos are then created.
Vertically placed logs are used for post and beam log cabins. This approach generally uses fewer wooden planks, so it is cost effective and more eco-friendly than other buildings. In a similar way, the timber framed bespoke log cabins are made. The planks of wood used for these cabins are made squarer, and the overall process is usually a lot quicker and easier than other building procedures.
Corner post log cabins are designed to have posts at each end of the cabin to finish it off neatly and to offer a natural place for the wood to end.
One of the easiest ways of building log cabins is the hybrid approach. This involves using partial wood materials and partially using veneers with the appearance of timber. Log cabins can be built quickly and easily this way.
