Another one from the "press releases for my old job, but I'm still interested" file:


Look at that - lovely log cabin under construction. Canada? The US? Switzerland, maybe?

Uh, no. It's Norfolk.

Mike Balls of the Log House Company is building log houses in the UK, and this one is going up for a Norfolk family. The timber's locally sourced and it is, they claim, the UK's first log-built house.

I've not idea if you could get a mortgage on it, or what it would be like to live in, but my, it looks lovely, doesn't it?
