How Contemporary Log Living Began ...

Contemporary Log Living began when Pete & Diane Cossie were part of the sales and marketing team at the Ideal Home Show 2011.

We completely fell in love with the concept of open plan living and could see that the UK consumer has very little choice when it comes to self-building, large or small.

"Since then we have successfully built Log Homes and Annexes in Shropshire, Somerset, Hampshire, Cumbria, Essex, Kent, Wiltshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Hereford, Surrey, Wales and more.

We also have vast experience when it comes to Planning Permission because we've been involved with the building industry for over 30 years.

So when we show up for one of our free site consultations with you (and most of them are a 3 hour drive from where we are based) people are surprised to find that we just roll up, make you feel completely at ease and LISTEN to what you want us to help you build.

The personal service is something we offer and we build your annexe, cabin or home with a heart because we care.

Our claim to fame is that we were the sales and marketing team that went on to be the ONLY company EVER to have sold the Ideal Home Show show house.

It was SUCH an event that it ended up being featured on Amanda Lamb's My Flat Pack Home TV show when the TV crew followed it's journey to it's new location in Cornwall.
