Half log house
The half log house is one of our most built natural wooden houses. We have fabricated 30 houses in total. Easy and sturdy made out of half logs. Available as one or two-story homes. Why not live in a home that breathes?
These more traditional log cabins and homes are retreating to nature and your soul. They come in different sizes as one or two-level homes ready to move in. If you have decided to create a home with a healthy living environment in a modern log house we are your partner to work with. Based on years of experience in log house planning, engineering, manufacturing, and building we can help you to create your perfect home. What do you think of a log house with a log Sauna for instance? Enjoy a cup of tea on the porch while listening to the birds sing.
These homes can be customized and start usually at 25m2. An area of 8 x 8 meters is required for assembly. A one-story half log house has 64 m2 with a 12 m2 Outdoor patio. A two-story log house can is 130 m2. All standard one level log houses come with a living room, kitchen nook, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and outdoor patio. Two-story homes have 2 additional bedrooms upstairs.
The ceiling height is 3 meters with a vaulted roof. This can be a family house, a guest house or a multi-functional space.
Facts: The platform is made of a steel framework, covered with wood veneer. The thickness of the veneer will be 15cm. The walls are supported with steel, sound, heat and waterproofed insulated. All houses come with electrical and plumbing, thickness 15cm. Doors and windows, kitchen cabinet worktops and bathroom sanitaryware and assembly are included in the price. However, this model differs from our others.
We can build this house in different wood types but generally use yellow pine half logs, if not requested differently.
Our log homes are fire resistant?
Studies have shown that log homes are very fire–resistant, with certain types of woods performing better than others. Unlike the walls of traditional stick-built houses, log home walls are stacked and sealed with chinking to form a solid wall, which produces a much different dynamic when they’re on fire. The result is more like a glued laminated beam than a solid wood wall, making it more difficult to burn. In other words, the size and diameter of the timber logs used in a log home make them harder for the fire to access and use as fuel.
The stress-reducing effects of outdoor nature are well documented from a scientific perspective. The positive benefits of nature are highly desirable for stress reduction, recovery, attention, and general healthy living.
Half log cabins give you the perfect feel of a cozy and modern living space. Our houses are innately tied to changing attitudes about privilege, wealth and materialism. The trend towards tiny living is growing in both urban and rural environments alike.
Benefits of wood
- Stress-reducing effects
- Reduces sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activation
- Wood performs well acoustically, naturally sound – damping
- The humidity level inside a wooden house is always at 45 – 57% – optimal level for human health! This moisture level prevents the natural spread of infections. The main advantage of a wooden house is that the wood always absorbs excessive humidity from the inside air, and when the air becomes too dry, it will give the moisture back
We do not use rare types of wood, cutting down which causes irreparable damage to the environment. Wood Types we use and their specifics:
- The highest quality of facial surfaces that do not require additional processing
- High adhesion strength
- High stability and dimensional accuracy, stable geometric shapes.
- Environmentally friendly
We make it simple, but significant
The shell of the building consists of a roof, exterior walls, including windows and doors, and a foundation. It is necessary that all those structures, elements and details of the house were assembled professionally, thorough and accurate. Most of the heat escapes through the roof, so it is important to put the insulation materials right. Proper installation of windows and doors in the wooden house, too, plays an important role in the energy efficiency of the house.
Look at usual things with unusual eyes
Half log houses have even surface walls inside. The round look is only visible from the outside. If you want the full round look, we can build a full log house like mountain lodges.
The starting price is TL 2500 per square meters 64m2 x TL 2500 = TL 160.000 .
