All You Need to Know About Building a Log Cabin Base
There are several different options for your log cabin base out there. And finding the right form of foundation can be a simple process when you have all the information.
Make sure your base is stable and level and your log cabin will sit nicely on top, leaving no room for any issues in the building process.
Flat ground is always best for your log cabin. Building on a slope can prevent the log cabin sitting properly and can cause issues down the line.
Remember the placing of your log cabin is important, making sure you’re able to get around the sides of the building. Don’t build your log cabin too close to trees or too close to your boundaries. And if you’ve got all that sussed, check out all the awesome log cabins we offer via the button below!
