There is a variety of product decisions that affect the look of your finished house. These include the choice of logs, corner types, cladding options and roof shapes, for example.
CHOICE OF LOGS
Logs are chosen based on the purpose of the building and personal preference. The chosen log also affects the overall architecture of a Honka house. Majestic round logs are suitable for resorts and rustic log cabins. Square logs can be used for any traditional or contemporary log home. If you want to create a contemporary design with urban, minimalistic details, then your choice is the non-settling Honka Fusion log.
Round logs are perfect for rustic log cabins and excotic resorts.
Square logs are suited for a variety designs, both traditional and contemporary.
The non-settling Honka Fusion log is your choice for urban, minimalistic designs.
Massive and insulated walls
Major parts of our houses are built from sufficiently thick log so that they do not require any extra insulation even in the coldest climates such as the northern parts of Finland and Russia.
We also offer low-energy walls with additional insulation. The insulation can be installed on either side of the log wall and coated with various panel and cladding options. With these low-energy structures and modern heating system, it is possible to reach any given energy class.
Variety of cladding options
With our low-energy walls, exterior cladding is needed and the designs can be chosen freely to achieve the desired look. You can choose a panel that matches your chosen logs. Outside panelling can also be achieved with a variety of wood panels, plywood or boards. Even rendered surfaces are possible with the non-settling Honka Fusion structures.
Spruce, treated with iron vitriol
Cross corners are characteristic to log houses, but many people feel they are a feature of rural landscapes. Our clearly defined, minimalistic Honka Zero Corner™ concept produces log houses that are at ease even in the most urban environments. With the layered wall structures the corner notches are only visible from the inside or the outside, depending on which side the insulation is installed on.

The type of roof can have a significant effect on the look of your house. On contemporary houses, the roof types tend to be simple and clear cut. On traditional houses you can find more variation and more complex shapes.

Log houses get their characteristic look from the material they are made of: natural wood. The entire interior does not have to be wooden though. Partition walls can be made of lightweight materials and covered with wallpaper, for example. The log walls can be stained and treated in many different ways.
