In order to make the next step in the process, a drawing of your dream cabin will be developed.
Sources of cabin drawings:
- Standard model from our catalogue
- Standard model from our catalogue with your modifications
- Your own unique drawing
Our full time architect will draw, make modifications or changes until the drawing has completely fulfilled your expectations and needs.
As a result, you will receive a full set of technical drawings that correspond to the building application requirements as well as the construction process.
Once the drawing of your cabin is completed, the price offer will be provided shortly after.
The price offer will include detailed description of the materials offered as well as the fixed price for each specific part of the total offer.
The price offer will clearly indicate what is not included in the offer so that the customer can calculate the total expenses of the project.
If the price offer is accepted and a positive decision is taken, a contract will be developed.
The contract will be strictly based on the fixed price offer, presenting the same specification, this way eliminating any hidden or additional costs to the customer.
As the contract is signed, a specific delivery time of your cabin will be assigned in the delivery plan.
Careful selection and preparation of logs is a key factor for sustainable log cabin quality that will last for centuries.
The process starts with selecting a slow growing pine logs over 100 years of age that meet the strict criteria:
- Minimum of 70% heartwood
- No left twist
- No blue stain
- Harvested during the winter
Then, the logs are debarked, precut and stored in cross-stacks for slow and natural drying process.
Additional drying of the timber is performed in the most modern and technology advanced kiln.
Controlled by the computer, it allows managing the drying process according to the highest industry standards and slowly dry the timber until the moisture content drops below 20%.
A natural drying process is imitated this way preventing the logs from large cracks.
As a result, outstanding quality logs are ready for the production process.
