LOG LEISURE BUILDINGS
Finlog can cover an existing pool or as part of a new build project. We have recently completed a number of private and commercial projects that could by appointment be viewed and as you can see are beautiful buildings to spend time in and entertain friends and family.
Nothing else looks quite like a Finlog pool enclosure. In our experience the best log to use for this purpose is the Finlog laminated 88mm flat log. This allows the wood to breath but still holds a very good insulation value. The temperature differential can be extreme so the lamination holds the wood together to stop (splitting) and warping. An 8 part roofing system stops a high proportion of condensation and hence hard water staining, we recommend the use of ‘Velux’ type roof window as these have a thermal break built in and can be opened on warm summer days. Attached or integral changing rooms, plant room, sauna/steam and gym can all be designed into the project. A choice of exterior colours can be chosen and only needs re-coating (after a light sand down and wash) every five years. For the inside of the log we recommend a breathable hard wax coating (originally) designed for floors. This will last the harsh pool atmosphere, whether and salt water pool or chlorine based for around 10 years, dependent on use. We also recommend a rubber (playground) type floor covering, this is very safe, hygienic and allows for drainage due to its open structure and comes in a range of colours.
Lighting is very important for creating the right atmosphere. Two or more circuits can be used for different mood lighting. This can be included in the project or we can liase with your own contractor, the choice is yours.
A Finlog pool enclosure will add a new dimension to enjoying life as well as increase the value of your property – unlike an outdoor pool!
Some companies will try to sell you a 45mm log pool house, Finlog advise strongly against this as we believe 88mm is the minimum that should be recommended for a pool house.
LOG GYMS & SAUNAS
Finlog can custom fit your gym/sauna into your home or garden. The perfect place to train and relax, and no monthly charge! Integral sauna, steam room and shower? no problem. The people from Finlog can install your log gym from start to finish, the only thing we don’t do is supply the gym equipment, we leave that to you.
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
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."
"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"
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
'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'.
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.
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 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
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
