Choosing Nordic slow growing timber was a deliberate choice as its qualities ensures that it can face all what the UK weather throws at it with ease. It's well that the Swedes have known about these qualities for generations and it's only now that we are just starting to catch up. This Nordic timber, because it's very slow growing, is very dense and this gives it the stability in all types of weather. And the overall design of these log cabins enables all the timber to work together and this make the timber even stronger.
Quality slow growing Nordic timber is the order of the day for the Trentan cabins and although it's possible to make log cabins with cheaper materials and save a few pounds it's better to make them in the first place with the correct timber for the job. The small difference in the cost is always worth every penny as the best value log cabin is not always the cheapest. The log cabin firms making buildings down to a price can restrict them from making soundly built and long lasting buildings. It always pays off in the long run so try to buy the best you can. Add in features such as double glazing throughout with proper glass (NOT plastic) as well as storm proof doors and windows and you will be thankful you did.
