I never get tired of doing what I do. Other people do what they want, I do what I’m best at.

When I choose and cut down trees at the same time I’m taking care of my forest.

I attended a course on log construction in Kurun Metsäoppilaitos. It included theory and constructing three different kinds of buildings. From then on I’ve learned by doing.

Tell me your ideas and hopes and let’s plan the details together. You will get the log building of your dreams.

PROCESS.

EVERYTHING STARTS IN THE FOREST

Log constructing is a long process. The best time to cut down trees is in winter, they are cut to the right length at the same time. Logs are peeled in spring. Constructing the building startS inside, in the construction hall, by choosing the logs and notching them individually. The finishing touches are put on at site.

  • Cutting down the trees in winter to keep moulding to its minimum (fir, pine, aspen, birch, alder)

  • Cutting the logs to the right length

  • Peeling the logs in spring

  • Carving the log frame (sauna, smoke sauna, lean-to, outdoor sleeping cabin, log teepee, barebecue hut, outdoor kitchen, cottage, woodshed, storage, dog house, table, bench, bed, etc.)

  • Notching the corners (dovetail, round notch, long cross, short cross)

  • Drilling the holes for dowels

  • On separate agreement: foundation, transport, insulation, roof waterproofing, doors and windows
