Do I have to do anything to take delivery of a building?
Copperwood recommend that access is cleared to the area of construction. The pallets are up to 6m long and 2m wide, we will drop the pallets as close as we can to the construction site. Our log cabins are delivered on vehicles equiped with forklift trucks.
What kind of timber is used in Copperwood log cabins?
Our cabins are all cut from pine timber, they are grown in a cold climate and grow with tighter rings and therefore are stronger and more robust.
