Log cabins have become enormously popular in Britain – and throughout Europe – over the last twenty-five years, and a number of companies have tried to take advantage of that trend. One manufacturer, however, stands out: Palmako Garden Buildings.
Palmako has been one of the continent’s leading producers of high-quality log houses since the start of the 21st century, and manufactures more than 40,000 of them every year. The company takes great care to create products which are environmentally-friendly. That doesn’t mean any compromises when it comes to functionality or looks, though; they are also painstakingly designed and crafted, and exceptionally beautiful.There’s an extensive range of Palmako Log Cabins: smaller structures suited for use as storage sheds or garden rooms, medium-sized ones which are perfect as home offices, studios or playrooms, and large log houses ideal for holiday or rental homes. And there’s an enormous selection of design options available throughout the Palmako line, so no matter what type of building you want for your garden or property, you don’t have to “settle” for a lesser structure. You’ll find a sturdy, attractive log cabin to meet your needs.
People choose log houses for many reasons, but key among them are the structures’ durability and strength. Palmako log cabins are designed to provide the ultimate performance in both areas.All of the company’s cabins are built from top-quality Nordic spruce which has been FSC certified. Many other manufacturers “force grow” their forests in order to produce as much timber as possible; Palmako, however, allows its trees to grow naturally in extremely harsh temperatures and conditions. The logs used to build their cabins are unusually strong and can withstand anything that British winters can throw at them. (They also have a wonderful, yet subtle, natural aroma which can make you feel as though you’re in the middle of a remote forest, even if you’re really in a small garden in the suburbs of London.)There’s much more to Palmako log cabins than just their high-quality natural wood. For starters, nothing is left to chance in the design of the structures. You’ll find that for most models roofs and floor boards are solid timbers with tongue-and-groove construction, corner fittings are Chalet-cut to make them weather-resistant, and foundation joist bearers are all pressure-treated. Larger models have strong corner braces for stability and roof purlins to handle heavy snow loads, and all cabins with walls 34mm or thicker use double-tongue construction for added warmth.The windows, doors and fixtures in Palmako log cabins vary by model, but their quality is superb and far beyond those found in many competitors’ buildings: laminated door frames with stainless steel-covered low sills, large tilt-and-turn windows with real double-glazed glass, and top-of-the-line steel door locks and latches. You can also choose from roofing options like rubber EPDM, felt or felt tiles. And assembly is much easier than you might expect. All Palmako log houses come complete with the all of the fittings you’ll need, as well as detailed instruction manuals which are available in five different languages.We’ve referred to the many different types of exquisite log cabins manufactured by Palmako; here’s a closer look.
