Cavity Wall Log System
The outer walls are constructed from prefabricated timber panels with a choice of external claddings - half round (see image), weatherboarding, shiplap boarding or tongue and groove. The timber frame is constructed from 150mm timber studs set at 400mm centres, then clad from the above choice.
There is a choice of interior cladding such as round log, tongue and groove or plasterboard - or a mixture of all three! The panels are insulated with either mineral wool - Rockwool or Kingspan insulation panels and all incorporate a vapour barrier.
Solid Log Options
Timberspecs offer a wide range of solid log options:
- 92mm laminated pine log (square)
- 200mm square log laminated
- 220mm solid pine log - square or round
- 250mm solid round log
All the above options have insulated roof and floor areas.
The round log options give a very traditional log-cabin look and still meet all current building regulations.
Handcrafted Random logs
Timberspecs utilise the random hand crafted log system on your chalet, home or clubhouse for that rustic log-cabin look and feel. Still meeting all current European and UK building regulations as the "U" values of these logs far exceed requirements.
These are all constructed by our highly skilled craftsmen. Each building is pre-cut and constructed during manufacture, prior to shipping to the site.
Insulation - U Values
All our buildings are designed and built to meet extremely high U values.
Doors and Windows
Our doors and windows are handmade at our factory and are fully double-glazed.
All our structures have insulated floor layers. We offer various finished floor options: Oak - 24mm : Pine and Laminates of various types:
