Design stages of this prefabricated log cabin



It takes a bit as the club is finishing but they will get there!


Ventilated facade with pre-stained boards
Hinterlüftete hybrid Blockhauswand


Client fitted roof insulation and membrane upstairs, supervised self build! Still a challenge and a bit of work ahead. The boards have been prestained and will need another layer of stain.
The roof has 300 mm of  Rockwool, the membrane is the client´s choice. The u value of the roof is about 0,11 W/m2K and can be with another type of insulation also 0,09 W/m2K.
Zwischensparrendämmung mit  Kreuzlattung, hier bauen das die Kunden unter fachkundiger Anleitung ein.
