Many log house company’s only supply the building which is usually in a kit form and you must have a prepared base which can be constructed by a professional builder or groundwork’s company who have previously built bases for log houses.

This concrete base must be raised above soil level by approximately 300 mm this is to prevent the rain splashing up from the soil and damaging the bottom logs of your log home.

Any base must be constructed according to your local building control regulations, if you are constructing the base onto a soft surface will mean the log company will need to design the sub-frame of your log home differently and this in turn will affect the total cost of your log house.
