FINNISH LOG HOMES, LOG HOUSES
Log homes are not only the stuff of dreams, they are probably the most ‘green’ energy efficient type of home you can build but you probably realise that as you are reading this. We have been building and manufacturing log homes for many generations now and can offer a design service, planning advice and applications and a full build service. So from the ground up we can offer the complete service.
Finlog can build with a solid log wall thick enough to pass the insulation regulations or we can use a thinner log with an insulation wall inside and now we can also offer a twin log wall with an insulation cavity between them. We can use natural insulation products that allow the whole building to ‘breath’. This means that you have a more natural environment in which to live. This results in your home working as a big air conditioner, it regulates the moisture so becomes easier to heat in winter and keep cool in summer. Unlike modern bricks and mortar houses, wood houses do not produce electrostatic charges that raise and produce dust, so is especially welcome by allergy sufferers.
Sound insulation on our log building is FAR better that dense concrete products due to the structure of the wood, this means noise outside, stays outside. For more information on insulation, sound insulation, fire protection and u-values please request on our enquiries page or phone the office for a wood guide or see the new part L of the Building Regulations and Part E acoustic insulation.
On the right are some examples of homes we have built in the UK, France and Tahiti.
Finlog can organise a trip to Finland to stay in a Finnish log house and a factory tour for those interested in the nuts and bolts of log house manufacturing.

Dear Rob and Stuart, Now that we have come to the end of the first holiday chalet project I just thought I would say how much we appreciate the trouble that you have taken over it. Your speed, quality of workmanship and professionalism have been very impressive and the end result has exceeded our expectations. We would certainly invite you to tender for future work. Well done and thank you. Jamie Blackett Managing Partner
Just to let you know that we have now received the completion certificate from the Council, so it is all done and dusted. Thanks again to Stuart for such an excellent job: for your future reference, we would be happy to let anyone in this area, who is interested in getting a cabin built, come and see the standard of work for themselves.
Dear Robert, Just a quick letter to say many thanks to you and your team from Finlog for the log cabin you supplied us. The level of professionalism show to us from the first initial meeting was to say the least "first class". The saying "it does exactly what is says on the tin" really sums up how we feel about the cabin. There are many companies out there who could take a leaf out of your book when it comes to customer care. During construction the workman onsite were always more than helpful and very tidy. I know we were a pain from time to time, altering things as you went along, but never was is shown to be a problem. Your deadlines (despite the weather at times!) were spot on. As you know this was very important to us as to not disrupt the running of our business. Guests absolutely love the cabin and the positive feedback we receive is fantastic. We are booked well into 2008 - 2009. Once our plans from the council are passed we look forward to welcoming you back for Phase 2. Once again a big pat on the back to you and your team. We look forward to doing it all again soon.
I contacted Finlog from their website late one night after having been let down at the last moment by another company. I was very impressed to find an answering email on my computor by 9am the next morning. They proved to be extremely helpful both initially and in doing their best to meet my urgent build. They were extremely friendly and proffessional in establishing the build from start to finish. They also came out to check the building a year or so later for me. Now four years later the log cabin is as good as the first day - warm, dry and comfortable. It has been a wonderful home for my mothers last few years and now graces our garden as extra guest accomodation. Joyce and Ken
Dear Robert I wanted to drop you a line just to let you know how pleased we are with the log building you installed for us. We have now spent a lovely summer using the cabin and have really come to appreciate the quality, design and all the effort that went into the build. Our children love the built in TV screen and have spent many hours with their friends on the Wii and then cooling down in the spa. My husband and I really enjoy relaxing with friends and the bar area is a huge success. Once again, please thank Gary and the team who worked conscientiously throughout the build, even through some terrible weather. Many Thanks Fiona Koumi
Dear Finlog, Like the original build some 5/6 years ago your latest weatherproofing of my cabin has been carried out with both enthusiasm and attention to detail. It is so great to find such a reliable company that can be totally trusted and that gives really good value for money. Thanks again and see you next time.
Dear Mr Sheridan I am writing to let you know how delighted we are with the Finish Log cabin that you constructed for us over the summer. The cabin was so beautiful that my wife and I just looked at it for a week before we could bear to put anything in it! Not only is the cabin nicer looking than we had anticipated, but we were also very happy with the attitude and workmanship of your staff and very grateful of the extra effort you put in to make sure that the verandah, electrics, storage and other customised items were to our liking. I am now intending to make use of the cabin as an office, not just storage for my company, because such a pleasant environment merits being used to the full. In summary, are pleased that we chose Finlog for our cabin and very satisfied with the result. We would be happy to give references to your prospective customers in the future. Yours Sincerely James Masters Director
"Dear Mr Sheridan, May I thank you for your Spa building you constructed for us. I am very impressed with the professionalism you and your staff showed throughout. I am not easily impressed, but Finlog succeeded"
'My wife and I were extremely pleased with the design process which included all our ideas with sensible suggestions from Finlog. Rob and his team were great to work with and we were extremely pleased with their workmanship and professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending Finlog to any potential buyer in the future'.
I would like to thank this team for their excellent dedication to the job of building our dream home. Everything we hope for has been realised and more. Right from your introduction to your designer, through the building warrent and onto the finishing off, we could not be more pleased.
"Hi Rob, Thanks again for everything you did to build my workshop, it's a great place to work and even in the recent cold weather it's very easy to heat, my daughter now wants to move her bedroom down here! I must say it was not the cheapest option but in my view worth every penny."
