Botanic Living offers you the quick and easy way to expand your own eco living space. The eco natural chalets are built to the very highest Northern European standards and are more than capable of standing the test of time in the harshest Scandinavian and Baltic winters, where this style of building has been developed.
All the buildings are constructed of timber with a double-plank profile made from pine or spruce wood dried to 10-12% humidity, without painting an impregnation. There is also a wide range of optional features available including: insulated roofs, internal walls and doors. The size, style and finish of each unit is totally individual, and the wide range of fittings and configurations available means you get exactly what you want.
Treated correctly, your Botanical Living chalet or cabin will give enjoyment for many years. To encourage longer life, they recommend that your chalet should be treated with two to three coats of a quality oil-based treatment.
All these wooden cabins come with very high-spec double glazing as standard. Installation of services like alarm/electrical/plumbing can also be accommodated. It does require a foundation, installed by a builder and it is important that the foundation is level.
When planning the location of your Botanic Living chalet, you must keep in mind such issues as sunlight and how the chalet might shade areas of your house or garden, or the access to and around the chalet. And based on initial discussions, you can get an accurate 3D illustration of what your building will look like.
Botanical Living chalets are delivered to your site and erected on a prepared basis. Actual on-site installation time can be as little as two to three days, getting you up and running faster than conventional building methods.
I love the idea of a small wooden cabin built to your own customized requirements with just enough space for what you need. An efficient home fully utilized with minimal energy wastage; for me Less means More. Definitely the home I want to to grown old in, by the sea. check out how to build a log cabin video @ youtube
