Double skin log cabins are a type of log cabin that is made with two layers of logs. Both the inner layer and outer layer is made from the same thickness log, commonly 44mm although thicker logs can also be used. We offer 68 and 90mm logs. The two layers of logs are then joined together with a tongue and groove joint.
Double skin log cabins offer a number of advantages over single skin log cabins. They are more energy-efficient, as the air gap between the two layers of logs provides insulation. They are also more durable, as the two layers of logs protect each other from the elements.
If you are looking for a log cabin that is energy-efficient, durable, and attractive, then a double skin log cabin is a good option.

Overall, double skin log cabins are a good option for people who are looking for a durable, energy-efficient, and attractive log cabin. However, they are more expensive and require more maintenance than single skin log cabins.
Our double skin log cabins are constructed from the highest quality timber with a 44mm twin wall structure and a 50mm cavity between the two walls. The logs interlock at the corners, giving extra sturdiness to the structure. The benefit of double skin means that these log cabins are easily insulated between the log walls, we recommend using a Rockwool product or similar. The extra levels of insulation makes them suitable for year round use providing extra warmth and sound insulation. We highly recommend upgrading the standard external door and window units to the Premium fit to reduce the potential for condensation build up on the glass. Premium fit doors and windows provide much higher levels of insulation on a par with that achieved by the double wall construction.
