This is an affordable yet cozy log cabin for your children or grandchildren. It has all the charm of a private, large spread out home in the mountains. You can also use this as an “adventure playground”. Buy the glazed door, window, doors, and trim kits separately. Use sky lights to illuminate the exterior of the glazed door.
Included in the kit: glazed door, glazed window, interior trim, roofing felt, and two (2.73m high) siding logs with three (3.0 x 3.0m), six (6.0 x 6.0m), or eight (8.0 x 8.0m), siding planks. Roofing felt and sky lights not included. The kit does not include the hardware necessary for mounting the siding planks.
You have the option to buy a ready-made interior trim kit. These kits come with the same roofing felt and roof shingles as the kit. Some may be higher grade than others, so always check the quality of the materials before purchasing. As with the glazed door and roof shingles in the kit, these kits come with limited lifetime warranties.
To make up this roofing felt or roof shingles project, you will need to buy a siding log from a lumber store, or a log cabin supply store. This siding log should measure between two to three feet longer than your house. Be sure it is rectangular, as this is the most efficient way to make a log cabin appear natural. Two foot lengths are the most common dimensions.
The interior trim board will be attached to the wall by nailing. This trim board should also be the same size as the siding, but should have an attractive grain finish. This interior trim also serves as a location for any doors or windows, you decide to put in the cabin. It also adds a level of continuity to the appearance of the log cabin.
Now that you have your siding and exterior trim installed, it is time to put your log cabin together. Start by putting up the floor joists. These will be held securely in place by Brad nails placed every three to six inches. The next step is to attach the exterior trimmings. These include your siding, exterior trim, door and windows. You may decide to use one or more of these materials depending on your preference.
To finish your peter log cabin off, it is time to nail all of the interior surfaces to the floorboards. Use long nails and make sure they are fitted and pointed. Once the surfaces are nailed down, use exterior caulk to fill any gaps between the logs. Nail the trim boards and the log cabin will be finished and ready to enjoy!
Some people like to use real wood for their log cabins. This is certainly the most popular method for constructing a peter log cabin. Real wood, properly dried and shaped will give your cabin a unique look that is both stylish and affordable. There are a few tips to keep in mind when planning your log cabin. In order to keep the moisture out of the cabin, it is important that you trim the logs to about one inch longer than the size of the siding. You can use either nails or screws to do this.
After your siding plan is complete, it is time to prepare the outside of your cabin. Using pop stakes, stake your pvc log panels to the outside of your home. The pvc stands in between the siding and the ground, which keep the moisture from building up between the logs. If your cabin is for someone with a serious water issues, you may want to consider adding a sump pump to your log cabin in order to prevent excess rainfall from building up.
A sump pump is an external sump pump that you can install on your own, if you wish. Once your siding is in place, the next step is to build the inside of your pvc log cabin. This is usually done with plywood or lightweight plastic. Most people like to use particle board as the interior surface because it is easy to clean and because it is light. However, you can use almost any kind of material for the interior of your cabin, just as long as it is strong enough to support the weight of the entire cabin.
After your log cabin is built and your siding plan is complete, you can sit back and enjoy it! The exterior of your log cabin may have required a bit of maintenance, but nothing that you can’t handle. When you have a good set of pvc log cabins plans in hand, you will be ready to build your cabin in no time. There really is nothing more that you need to know before starting your Peter Log Cabin project.
