There’s something rather charming about log cabin style buildings, they remind us of snowy holidays and cold climates, this is because log cabin buildings are popular in Scandinavian countries where buildings need to be well insulated to cope with the cooler climate.
Nordic Wood offer a range of Nordic Rooms which the Scandinavians call ‘Friggebod’! The Nordic Room is made up of Scandinavian components, the timber frame from southern Sweden, the A-rated windows come from Denmark and feature low u-values depending on the glazing you choose.
As standard the Nordic Room’s are clad in spruce in either a rounded ‘D’ profile or flat tongue & groove, more durable cladding’s such as Siberian Larch and Western Red Cedar are available as options.
Unlike many log cabins used as garden rooms, the Nordic Room features insulation in the floor, walls and roof this is important as heat can be lost through all these elements – due to their construction some of the other log cabins on the market don’t feature insulation in the walls – a major source of heat loss.
Internally the Nordic room has a pine lining which can be left natural or whitewashed depending on taste, the room also features sturdy 27mm flooring.
The Nordic Room range comes in 13 standard sizes with either a single pitch roof or a gable roof. The single pitch ‘pent roof’ range has been designed to comply with permitted development rules with a 2.5m roof height meaning it can be placed near the boundary of your garden. Nordic Wood also offer a bespoke design service.
Nordic Rooms can be built in as little as three days on site. If you would like to see the quality of Nordic Wood buildings they will be exhibing at the following shows:
