One of the many advantages of owning bespoke log cabins is the ability to use them all year round.
It is important, therefore, to ensure that the structure is made and maintained in such a way that, during the colder winter months, the interior remains warm and dry.
There are several ways of achieving a comfortable temperature inside your garden structures. One way is to choose thicker planks of wood for your log cabins. These high-quality woods are able to capture and store heat during the daylight hours, and release it later, once it’s cooler.
Another way is to construct them in such a way that there are no gaps between the wooden slats. Any techniques that are designed to tightly bind the wood will contribute to the reduction of drafts and dampness.
Maintaining lower levels of humidity inside your bespoke log cabins will also help maintain the heat levels inside. Moisture can easily compromise any insulation properties and reduce efforts to fill gaps and cracks with insulation materials.
When you are designing your log cabins, it is important to make sure that larger windows are fully double glazed, since these will keep rooms warm, as the sunlight will naturally provide heat. Adding thick curtains to these windows in another method that can help prevent heat loss, and comes with the additional benefit of providing extra privacy.
