Tips to Consider Before Buying a Log Cabin
For many people, living in a log cabin is the dream. From cosy nights in front of the crackling fireplace to bright summer mornings waking up amongst nature, there is something quite special about setting up camp in a log cabin – something that a traditional house simply can’t offer.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a log cabin to live in, it’s important to find the right company to buy from. Not only is it essential to choose a company with a sparkling reputation, but it’s also important to make sure you choose one that offers after sales support. Below, we share our tips to consider before buying a log cabin.
Choose a business with a good reputation
This goes without saying, but we thought we’d mention it anyway. Always choose a company with a good reputation. Take the time to read customer reviews and ask to see examples of their previous work. If a company has several bad reviews, take your business elsewhere – it’s not worth the risk.
Find an established business with a strong history of selling log cabins
In the log cabin industry, experience is important. It can be the difference between the success and failure of your log cabin design. Choosing an established business is important; you want to feel assured that the company you choose can effectively design a cabin that meets your individual needs. Choosing a company that has designed and sold plenty of log cabins will give you peace of mind you’re making the right decision.
Make sure there is after sales support
You never know when you may run into a problem and therefore it’s important to choose a company that offers after sales support. You should be able to enjoy your log cabin for years to come – but what if you do run into a problem and need some advice, guidance or support? A log cabin is an investment and therefore it’s crucial you have the necessary support once you have made the purchase. With that in mind, make sure there’s insurance too!
Go environmentally friendly
Many people think log cabins are, by nature, environmentally friendly. After all, they’re made from wood – so what’s the problem? The truth is, using trees from forests that are not sustainable can lead to a number of problems. When selecting a company, make sure they use sustainable wood and pride themselves on being environmentally friendly.
