Britain’s cutest log cabin

I’m not sure I would have used the word ‘cute’ to describe it but nonetheless it’s very satisfying to see the log cabin I worked on in 2009 getting national coverage.

Over the course of 4 months I worked as part of a small team building the cabin from locally-sourced larch logs. This is a fully-scribed log cabin which is to say each log is carved so it fits perfectly over the one below leaving a gap & leak-free fit. It’s very physical work with most of it done by hand with broad axes, chisels and special channeling knives though a chainsaw does come in handy.

We took plenty of photos during the build and I will put up a gallery page of the best ones.
