The idea was not to build yet one more beautiful, typical house. The focus was... to erect a home... Adapting folk architecture... & yet be confident that it will effectively protect from storms , gales & the cold, that it will possess the full range of comforts, yet be simultaneously beautiful...
— Stanislaw Witkiewicz... Polish Architect, Artist & Founder of Zakopane Style

The Little Log House Company welcomes International enquiries from the US, Canada, Europe & around the World...

Traditional handmade log houses have been the choice of many people for many centuries, these houses have successfully proven themselves to withstand any weather or climate & with proper maintenance and design, they have a life expectancy of many generations.

There are many benefits of the "log lifestyle". The natural timber provides a warm, healthy & uplifting environment, the high thermal retention of wood provides reduced heating costs, & a traditionally built log house is typically low maintenance.

The Log Houses on our website are a collection of examples of handmade Log Houses by Polish & Slovak Goral Craftsmen using large semi round & flat logs, they have unique character and beauty, and attention to detail, they don't resemble the many mass produced "log" buildings on the market that are often basic with thin timber walls.

We work with Traditional Goral Craftsmen whose knowledge and experience in Historic Log Building Methods & Style has been passed down from generation to generation.

Period Workshops is a friendly, down to earth, hands on business in Northern Ireland with over 30 years of experience in traditional building, & historic building restoration & conservation... Working alongside Goral craftsmen we add our own individual touches with the use of antique materials etc... We can offer a full design & build service, providing architectural drawings & helping with planning Applications... 

So, if you dream of living & relaxing in a beautiful log house with natural character, rustic timber floors & a wood burning stove... then feel free to contact us, and in cooperation with our Goral friends, we will be happy to work with you & make your dreams come true...
