The DIY Timber Home Kits

While we would not recommend an amateur with no building experience to tackle the construction of a HEAVY SOLID LOG home, it has been shown frequently that contractors or developers with no log home experience can erect their own homes – or parts of a home – relying solely on the manual that we provide. T&B supply all necessary material to complete the home including all drainage, sanitaryware, electrical wiring, built-in cupboards, glazing and all paint and varnishes if required. All components are labelled. Where it is needed, T&B can provide technical assistance and, when working in partnership with a new contractor, this is always provided.

T&B will also supply all architectural and working drawings required by local authorities such as municipalities and environmental impact groups. In South Africa T&B staff can also supervise the approval process, steering the documentation through the authorities and can also assist with containerization and shipping to destinations worldwide.

Log Cabin Kits: Design & flexibility

All T & B log cabin kits can be used as they are presented in our brochures or can be adapted to meet the clients’ needs. Where clients have their own architect, our design teams are prepared to liaise with them to ensure that they work in a way suited to our HEAVY SOLID LOG systems and do not incur unnecessary costs. T & B has had collaborated with leading architects worldwide and many of our better innovations have come about as a result of suggestions from independent designers.

A one-stop service

Experience has shown that the majority of clients want a one-stop service. Having finalised their design and their price, they like to be able to leave everything to the contractor. T&B systems facilitate this.

Log Home Kits

Timber Home Kits delivered in containers can be – and often are – 100% complete, with no need for any additions or extras from local suppliers (if they exist in the area).

It will be readily understood that this makes T & B the ideal choice for sites anywhere in the world which other contractors might have difficulty in reaching or working on. We have delivered kits by ten-wheeler all terrain trucks, by ship and barge and even by air. We have built on mountains and on beaches where there were no jetties, railways, water, sub-contractors or suppliers – and no local labour. (All materials and kits are checked for size and quality before they leave our workshops – and everything from electric cables to bathroom basins can be included when these are not available – or are overpriced – locally.

In short, T & B Log Homes can provide a complete one-stop turn-key service at short notice, anywhere in the world.
