Contemporary Log Houses

Proof that log houses and timber frame houses can be modern and contemporary in appearance. And inside they can be light and bright and spacious. However your house is designed or constructed you can be confidence that it enjoys the finest Polar Pine and selected timber that means under the beautiful exterior it will be as strong and long lasting as any solid log house.  And the ‘Artichouse’ ‘Thermolog’ construction means it will be warm in winter and cool in the summer. A genuine ‘eco-house’.

This log home was built in a very challenging location, but with the right plans and a good building team the customers got exactly what they wanted.  Visible supporting beams and white walls give this house a nice character. The combination of wooden and tiled floor in the long hallways is a great and natural solution. The green roof was the customers own idea and it truly is a crown for this log home!



Savigné L'Eveque is a small community close to the French town of Le Mans. It has also become home to a very spacious privately-owned Artichouse log home with a floor area of almost 240m2.  The solar system on the roof is the perfect energy saver and is sized to meet the occupants' energy needs.  The Artichouse City-corners, visible ceiling beams in the living and dining area and laminated 135 x 183 mm Articlogs give this house an impressive and unique design.

This long rectangular log home with its integrated top-set windows and a living area of 155m2 has almost become a landmark in the friendly village of Chérance in the Pays de la Loire.  This inviting house is equally as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. Its modern interior design combines white ceilings and walls with the natural colour of the logs, comfortable interior fittings, floor heating and an open-plan living and dining area. The facade with its floor-to-ceiling windows framed with 88 x 183 mm laminated Articlogs is a real eye-catcher too!
