Design and construction of custom-designed Scandinavian-style log cabins from organic materials

Our vision

Eccobauer  is a company where millennia of Scandinavian tradition of handmade log cabins and cutting-edge concepts of contemporary housing meet.

Northern European log cabins have a rustic charm to them that stand out not just fortheir aesthetics, but also for their use of organic construction materials and the science based construction methodsemployed.

Taking inspiration from the beauty and functionality of historical Scandinavian-style log cabins, we concentrate on choosing the best organic materials for the houses.

The mix of tradition and innovation we incorporate in our designs improves energy efficiency, and our log homes require less maintenance and have a longer lifespan.

Traditional Scandinavian log cabin
Handcrafted custom-designed log cabin made from hand scribed logs

Hand scribed & notched logs or modern engineered timber?

We love to build both modern custom-designed chalets in the traditionalhandcrafted way and creating traditional Scandinavian log houses made from modern engineered timber on a high-tech production line. We produce and build anything and everything that can be made from logs, both classic and modern. 

We do not have catalogues with models – our vision contradicts this concept. We understand the unique lifestyles and needs of our clients and aspire to build unique solutions.

We believe in custom-designed and custom-built log homes, not in a basic one-size-fits-all cabin.

Similarly, there is a difference between driving a Ferrari and a Fiat, even if they are both great Italian cars. The driving pleasure and comfort they offer are very different.

Our idea

Our idea is to build carefully with all our heart from all-natural organic materials.

With us you can be sure your log cabin contains no PVC, acrylics, epoxy resins, silicone, styrofoam or any other modern man-made construction materials.

There is no doubt that those who live in modern houses made from modern materials continually suffer from allergies and chronic conditions.

Choose only natural organic finishing materials for your log home.  

Timber, stone, glass, metal, natural oils and waxes are good for you, whereas modern construction chemicals are not. Let’s keep the good things in and the man-made materials out.
