Our Builds

Log Homes

Our self-build log homes bring the beautiful, unmistakable aesthetic of Scandinavian homes, to the UK, for your self-build project.

Produced by Finland’s leading manufacturers of self-build house kits, Finnlamelli and Hirsiset, our extensive range of luxury log homes are made from glulam beams and laminated logs. Spanning both traditional and contemporary design, our log homes are built with comfort, sustainability, and energy efficient living in mind.

Whether you opt for a modern log home with smooth planed logs and contemporary corners, or a more rustic aesthetic with traditional cross-jointed corners, our range of models can be fully insulated, boasting low thermal heat transfer, saving you money on heating bills, and lowering your environmental impact.

We can guide you through the entire self-build journey, from working with you to customise your model of choice, helping you to design the perfect living space for you, right through to moving into your Scandinavian home.

Alternatively, should you wish to be more hands-on, we can simply provide you with a self-build kit to build yourself, or we can build the watertight shell for you to fit and finish.

At Scandinavian Homes, we offer you the flexibility to build the kind of log home that dreams are made of. Whatever size, no matter the number of bedrooms you desire, select a model/style from our extensive range, and we bring your dream to life.

From stunning, comfortable garden offices suitable for every season, to home gyms, yoga studios and saunas, to workshops, arts spaces, and beyond, the possibilities of our garden buildings are almost endless.

At Scandinavian Homes, we work with leading Finnish manufacturers of self-build home kits to offer stunning, Scandinavian-style log garden buildings for your self-build project.

Mobile Homes

One of the most difficult parts of the self-build journey can be navigating the challenges of the planning process.

As self-build specialists, we can help guide you through this, however, sometimes we have to work within limitations that the planning process, and certain kinds of land, can pose.
Enter our self-build mobile homes.

At Scandinavian Homes, we work with leading Finnish manufacturers of log kit houses to bring you a high-quality, luxury alternative to a traditional mobile home, enabling you to make your self-build dream a reality, without compromise.

Our self-build mobile homes are designed to enable disassembly and transportation, but are used by many of our customers as stationary structures like granny annexes, or further accommodation for guests visiting the home.

With a wide variety of models fitting the structural and size requirement of a “mobile” structure, simply select your chosen style from our extensive range of both traditional and contemporary options, and work with us to design your dream Scandinavian mobile home.

Available as fully insulated structures, with double glazed windows and doors, we offer a first-class, fully managed turnkey service, or we can simply provide you with a self-build kit, leaving you to insulate and fit and finish the build yourself.

Unlike anything you’d imagine when you think of “mobile homes”, call our team at Scandinavian Homes today, and add some Scandinavian charm to your self build kit for you to build and fit out yourself.
