Only slow grown Nordic Spruce and Pine are used in the production of any LA Lodges building, with the typical age of timber being 100 years.
All wall log natural timbers are kiln dried to 18%.
For thousands of years timber has been used for the construction of homes, it is one of the few materials with natural strength and insulation qualities, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Superior materials for durability and attractiveness. We use only grade 1 Nordic Spruce and Pine which is dense in structure, because it is slow growing due to climatical conditions.
We at LA Lodges, with our traditional values approach, together with advanced computer aided design systems and manufacturing equipment, are endeavouring to be in a class of our own.
Profiled Timber, Machine Shaped with Interlocking Draught proofed system for corners, giving a robust long lasting structure.
Timber buildings can be fitted with slate, concrete tiles, sedum roofs, metal roof sheets in tile profile or even bitumen backed felt roof shingles. At the design stage the customer must specify their preference, as cement tile roof loading is much greater than that of bitumen felt.
Manufactured to the highest standards, each manufactured detail is rigorously inspected and quality checked at every stage of production.From supply of buildings in self assembly kits complete with full assembly instructions, to the building being erected on your prepared site.
LA Lodges provide quality log and timber clad buildings of all sizes. Our philosophy is "better by design," taking great care to ensure the technical detail of the building is correct from inception through to completion of build. This is the essential part of all timber building construction to guarantee a long term trouble-free lifespan. With the latest computer aided design systems, impeccable attention to detail makes all LA Lodges buildings long lasting, attractive and thermally efficient. The LA Lodges choice is the right choice.
LA Lodges are experienced in providing a full design and planning application service along with building warrant applications and, if requested, project management service from start to completion.
We offer a full build service or we can do the early more specialist log construction and allow the less specialised completeion of works to the customer. The building arrives with full construction drawings so it is also possible to self assemble your building and we are are happy to provide the kit only.
LA Lodges supply and erect buildings for all purposes, from the smallest garden summerhouse to holiday lodges, to luxurious multi level dwelling homes.
This web site only gives an overview of our manufacturing possibilities, with the versatile modular construction technique allowing endless variety.
The company offers full design and technical advisory services. From the customers initial description of requirements we will provide detailed plans and costings for your approval. The customer then reviews the plans for approval and signs them off, pays the negotiated monies and construction starts.
All base frame timbers, together with decking and fencing are all pressure impregnated. The external walls of the building should be treated with an external wood preservative available on the market in a choice of colours. We will happily advise you on products which we have used successfully for years.
Foundations can be concrete slabs, strip foundation or effectively any type of traditional foundation. Concrete slab is the most popular due to ease of construction.
A typical foundation drawing will be supplied but actual fundament requirement will depend on site land conditions.
