More About Our Company

Welcome to the Log House Company . . . .

We have experience in processing planning permission, design and building log homes. The Log House Company have now built many log houses around Ireland.

Company Director: Eamon Murray studied architecture, building technology and was a conventional builder for many years. In recent years he developed an interest in looking at alternative building solutions, which culminated in travelling to Finland to study timber technology and log house construction. In 2001 he formed The Log House Company. His work started with his own 3 acre development of seven log houses in Co.Wicklow. His own family home being the first house, which is now one of the show houses for The Log House Company, has given Eamon first hand experience of the pleasure and comfort of log house living.



Log HouseThe Log House Company:  We promote environmentally friendly, natural and sustainable products. We import our logs from Finland and Estonia because their timber and experience are far superior to anything that is available locally. We buy direct from a small family run sawmill who source their material from the Finnish Forest Certification Scheme. They provide an experienced architect to ensure that your design will stand the test of time. We have now built a number of houses around the country, as well as extensions and saunas. We are now sourcing our timber from a sawmill in Estonia, who source their laminated logs from Finland. Now we prefer, the 134mm wide vertically laminated log with the centre heart facing out. This is very stable log with less shrinkage/ settlement and tight with no draughts esp. at the corners.
