Timber Log Cabins and Buildings

TORSTEN – Skid Cabin

Skid Cabin TORSTEN

Log Cabins Australia import, tailor and design European style log cabins and buildings direct to any Australian address. Besides the well-known garden sheds, we also design and import tiny houses – and we are the first Australian importer of solid log houses suitable for any size family!

There is nothing that compares to the feeling of living in a timber log cabin. It is an every-day experience that cannot be matched by any other kind of living, providing the best home to relax and enjoy a happy and healthy life. The natural appearance of the timber makes a timber log building naturally attractive and beautiful.

The atmosphere of a log house is relaxed and the choices you make when planning your log house will create the unique and personal feeling of your home. Log buildings promote good health thanks to the unique characteristics of natural wood as a building material.

The “spirit” of a log house originates from organic wood. Despite the high degree of processing, the dense and healthy log in the wall is still the same tree that has endured snow, rain and sun in the forest. The feeling you get when you walk through the doors of a log house is unique – warm, cosy and welcoming. Naturally.

You will enjoy the pleasant look and touch of natural wood. All this in a perfect harmony with your values: life in a log home requires no compromises with your aspirations for organic, sustainable and ecological life style and values.

Quote from a log cabin owner:
“It’s a renewed pleasure every time we enter our home. It gives us a deep feeling of peace-of-mind and happiness in our daily lives.”

Simply walking into a timber log building makes your heart jump. You are instantly greeted by the fragrant of timber, and are invited to enjoy the warmth and the homely feeling of your cabin – every single time you enter. A tasteful selection of wooden furniture and décor items that match the overall theme of residential log cabins can be used to further enhance their aesthetic and natural beauty.

Log cabins have an ancient history in Europe, and in America are often associated with first generation home building by settlers. Now Log cabins are again evolving, The log cabins for sale at Timber Log Buildings Australia combine the traditional charm of timber logs with modern
