The use of Log Cabins as a tiny house is a movement that is taking the world by storm. In Scotland the Hutter’s have been building small dwellings for many years and now this has seen a revival, see http://www.thousandhuts.org/, for more information on hutting in Scotland.
So what is the benefits of a Log Cabin Tiny House, think of the following.
Cost of buying a Log Cabin
When your budget is an issue you need to make efficient use of both your money and space. The Log Cabin is the perfect option. Not only is it cheap to make, ours are made from Scandinavian Spruce, but they go together easily so the construction is DIY.
Custom Build Log Cabin
There is no need to build a flat pack house and change it as you build. You can design your own log cabin and get us to make your log cabin to our specifications. Yes, down to the millimetre in size if needed. Our precision instruments will cut the timber and notch it so it will slot together. Need an extra window after its built, no worries, just cut the wood out and the fit the window. Single glazed windows can be bought then upgraded or just buy a double glazed log cabin.
There is even the option of buying a large log cabin the same size as a mobile home. Log Cabins can be classed as mobile homes and in certain circumstances only carry 5% VAT, ask us about this possibility.
All these reasons make a Log Cabin a perfect option for a Tiny House.

Heating a Log Cabin
So you have got your log cabin and now your thinking – how do you heat a log cabin? Well, there are as many different ways as there are ways to heat a house, even if you are heating a tiny house. For example we have below a wood burner in the tiny house. It does need to be big. A log cabin can be heated with 2 kW to 6kW, but you could have your wood burner to heat your water. So your now getting to the point where you have an off the grid log cabin, but that is for another day.
