This is a Tomsloghomesandcabins Review of the Website. This outfit builds and supplies timber/ log cabin kit homes.
"Timber type: For building, slow grown pine trees, PINUS SYLVESTRIS & PICEA ABIES (SPRUCE)are used, harvested from areas where average temperature is below 5 degrees Celsius. Low temperature guarantees slow growth and tough texture.
Timber process: Before building process, logs are dried and heat treated to meet the conditions of Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service. Logs are shaped according to clients wish: solid round log / solid square log / laminated log (very tough gluelam).
Timber profiles: Wall profiles (Internal & External) can be round/ square dressed - 180mm or square laminated timber - 202mm. Your chosen profile can reflect a modern or traditional look.
Solid Timber construction is the
house-building method of today and of the future. In terms of both
construction costs and ecology, solid timber houses guarantee a durable,
environmentally-friendly and high quality home for generations.
Wood is a strong, energy efficient material that creates warm, healthy, safe and not least economical living environments. The use of wood as a renewable construction material guarantees low-carbon-emission building, a permanent incentive towards reforestation and the storage of CO2.
A solid timber house does
not lead to deforestation. On the contrary, when FSC and PEFC certified,
it guarantees a sustainable management of forests and even an increase
of forest areas in Australia and the entire world." (Website copy)
is a sparse site with little to encourage an owner builder. Kit supply
has a short page: prices are based on square meterage, with a short list
of inclusions and no mention of support. Kit homes Tasmania supplier.
