To provide the best solution for every house, a wide range of wall profiles in both round and square beams are available in different thicknesses. All solid logs have been pre-dried to a moisture content of 20% (±2%), while laminated logs have been pre-dried to a moisture content of 13% (±4%). As raw material, we use only slow-growing Nordic spruce and pine wood, which is the best material for building log houses.

Corners of log cabins
For solid beams (40mm, 50mm, 70mm and 92mm), we offer only the traditional transversal angle. For beams from 94mm and up we can offer three types of angles.
Crossbar is a traditional solution that has been used in Estonian farm architecture for centuries. It is characterised by the ends of the beams protruding from the surface of the wall.
Clean corner or fishtail peg is a newer but also traditional solution. The main difference compared to a cross-cut is that the intersection remains smooth, but the bevelled end faces of the beams remain visually visible.
Castles at is the most modern. There are practically no log ends protruding from the wall surface, and visually the corner of the building is much calmer, giving it a similar appearance to other timber-framed buildings. In particular, in densely populated urban environments, this may be the only type of log wall allowed.
Insulation of log houses
Although wood itself is a fairly heat-retaining material, it is not always practical to make the logs very thick – in this case, additional insulation on the outside or inside can help.
The joist spacing and studs also need sealing and insulation. We mainly use either linoleum, glass or wood fibre wool, self-expanding sealants or other sealing materials.
Doors and windows
Solid wood doors and windows for log cabins also come from our own factory production line. This ensures the quality of the wood used and the precision of the work. We can also manufacture doors and windows to order.
Types of windows and doors:
- AB – quality AIAMAJA
42mm hinge, glass package 3-6-3, inward opening, tilt-and-turn “two-handed” opening
- BC – quality SUVEMAJA
51mm hinge, glass package 3-6-3, inward opening, tilt and turn “one-handed” opening
- C – Quality LIFETIME
Windows can be fitted with optional shutters
Stairs are made of high quality spruce wood according to the type of building, the project and the customer’s wishes. The possibilities for different solutions are endless.
In garden, summer and sauna houses, either a staircase or a simple staircase to the sleeping loft is most common. There are, of course, many more possibilities in a residential house. The most common solutions are the straight staircase, the turning staircase, the L-shaped staircase and the U-shaped staircase. And, of course, the staircase comes with handrails and other accessories.
Delivery kits for houses
In the production of all log houses, we take into account the needs of our customers, the purpose of the houses, the building requirements and the materials used in our production.
Every house coming off the production line is a custom-made job where all the customer’s wishes and specificities are taken into account. So we don’t have the traditional stock and when ordering a log house you have to take into account the time needed for production. Depending on the size and specificities of the house, the time needed for the delivery will also vary.
Typical warehouses with their standard specification may be suitable for southern climates, but may not be suitable for our climate conditions and building codes. To make houses last, different requirements must be taken into account, such as snow and wind loads.
Our advantage is that you can choose between different delivery kits for all types of houses, whether they are garden houses, summer houses, summer cottages or residential houses.
Houses suitable for our climate
We have a long experience in the production of log houses and solid wood houses and know what suits our environment.
Peace of mind guaranteed
We are confident that all our customers will be satisfied with the product, both when they receive it and when they use it later.
A client-centred approach
There are no typical projects for us. Each client is unique with their own needs and wishes, and we will find solutions.
Fast and convenient service from Baltic House. I wanted to have a garden house for my garden that wasn't like every other garden house in South Estonia. In a couple of days we had the project together and soon the new garden house was in the yard waiting to be assembled.
I got the sauna solution I was looking for. I'm so tired of conventional egg and barrel saunas - there's not enough room. But now I have a suitable sauna house in the garden of my home, which I can also use as a guest house in the summer.
