The humble log cabin has come a long way, and today offers a range of home comforts.
These can range from gas central heating and fully integrated kitchens with central islands to spacious bedrooms with en suite shower rooms.
Some can only be used as holiday homes, while others can be lived in permanently throughout the year.
Their values differ considerably. We’ve picked six log cabins for sale that range in price from £25,000 to an impressive £1million.
Some of the chalets can only be used as a holiday home part of the year, while others can be used all of the time
A word of caution for anyone thinking of buying a home made from wood – and requiring a mortgage to do so – you may require specialist finance.
Mark Harris, of mortgage broker SPF Private Clients, explained: ‘Finding a mortgage to buy a log cabin will be more difficult than securing finance on a traditionally-built house, as many lenders consider wood to be an unconventional building material.
‘However, there are a few lenders who will consider lending on 100 per cent timber-constructed properties, subject to a suitable valuation and positive valuer comments regarding saleability and suitability for mortgage purposes.
Factors that will be taken into account by a lender include the location of the cabin, its use and lease.
Mr Harris added: ‘If the log cabin turns out to be unmortgageable, there are other options. It might be possible to raise the money against another property or by obtaining a personal loan.’
