However, if the log cabin appears to be cheap or very inexpensive then there will be a good reason for that and that it's made from cheaper, often less suitable, materials.

Log cabins UK have also been helping in the leisure industry where the latest idea is 'glamping' which to you and me means luxury camping. In Cwmcarn, in south Wales, wooden log cabins have been introduced into a campsite in the town. This is hoped to bring a new wave of tourists into the area and boost the local economy. It was suggested that each log cabin will generate over £12k per year income.
These specific log cabins are dome shaped, so a little different to the 'norm' and are equipped with all 'mod cons' so the holiday makers can enjoy their time in a 'home from home'. The shape of these cabins is said to look a little like something out of Teletubby Land but the key thing is whether they attract visitors and bring money into the area. The venture is supported by the local council, which is good to hear.
