Hiya, you might be interested in my house. It is the first log cabin to be built on the island, there have been wooden structures for a while but ours is actually round logs.
The base was put down, and last Monday the logs had arrived on site. The cabin was first erected in the factory in Lithuania, and then each log is numbered and then disassembled and shipped over to Corfu. On Monday the builders started to erect the cabin, we had a rainy day on Tuesday so we lost a day, Wednesday saw the cabin to the ground floor balcony. We visited Thursday evening and they were up to first floor level, and by Saturday had arrived to roof level. I can' believe how quickly it has been built, all the logs are interlocking and held in place with steel rods in some areas and wooden pegs in others.
I am told the roof will be on by the end of this week with tiles and then things slow down a bit as the carpenters come in and make the window and doors and the wooden staircase and the upper flooring. It will be tiled on the ground floor.
The next stage will be the fireproofing varnish which is applied inside and out and that also prevents insect damage. The plumbing and electrics are then put in and thats more or less it, the longest stage will probably be getting the water and electricity supplied, but the actual build takes no time at all!!
There is a show house on the north of the island so anyone travelling to the nothern and northwest resorts will see it on the side of the road. They have an office there and you can talk to the people about whatever style and size you might be interested in.
If you would like to see the pictures of the showhouse construction just click on my photos, my house is over looking the sea so does have better views, but its a lovely way to have a house especially if it is being built in a rural setting.
