Rondo is a two-storey log house designed in romantic key. This model is equally well-suited for a rural or urban location. Modern fancy glass surfaces are offset by railings and terraces. Appearances are dominated by the graduated pitched roof that hints at the arrangement of the rooms. External horizontal wide-plank lining enhances the air of respectability and conventionality.
The first storey contains the living room that is combined with the kitchen and the dining room, two bedrooms, an auxiliary room and a bathroom with a sauna option. Partially roofed terraces are designed in front of the living room and the bedrooms.
Exciting and playful open arrangement of the rooms is based around the stair enclosure permeating both storeys with top illumination. Adjacent are also an interior balcony over the living room and the connecting gallery. This solution enables various modern interior decoration possibilities and reinforces the sensation of openness.
Under the same roof, but separately from the house, are to be a shed, a heated pantry and a passage to the covered car parking space.
Spacious penthouse storey can be used as a separate apartment as it comprises two rooms with wardrobes and one bathroom. This arrangement facilitates adaptation to new living conditions, serving as equally suitable premises for longer-staying guests, grandparents or teenagers seeking that bit of extra independence.

We selected Palmatin thanks to fast feedback and informational webpage. There were a lot of house plans and projects. Many other log house companies didn’t offer drawings. We asked price offers from 7 to 8 companies and only received two price offers – one was from Palmatin.

It is possible to use different stone materials as wall coverings. It is possible to choose from brick, decorative stone, etc. If you use stone as your external wall covering, a special cement board is installed on the prefabricated wall and the stone material will be installed thereupon on the site. In the case of stone covering, a wider foundation must be built to support the wall covering.
It is similar to a stone facade, a special cement board will be installed on the prefabricated walls. The rendering of the facade will take place on the site.
With wooden facade you have many additional options. You may choose between different cladding profiles, types of wood and the manners of treatment of the wood (varnished, painted, impregnated, etc.) Treated wooden cladding will be installed on the prefabricated walls at the factory.
Basic – includes drawings for the log part, log part of the house, T-battens for openings, hydro isolation between the foundation and first log row, wooden dowels, isolation between the logs, special metallic parts and packages to be delivered in the order of assembly. The Basic kit is suitable if you wish to buy only the walls of the house and build the rest of the house yourself.
Standard – in addition to the Basic kit, this kit includes rafters, roof hydro isolation, ventilation slats, sarking, first floor joists, balcony joists, windows, exterior doors and special metallic accessories.

The wooden houses are highly resistant and durable. With proper construction methods, innovative assembly systems and good maintenance, the house can last up to a hundred years. The wooden construction is also easier to maintain and to renovate than more traditional house types. Its structure benefits from the natural strength and solidity of the wood. The wooden houses are resistant to the climate conditions. With time, the wood will aged beautifully, bringing more charm and history to the construction.
Even though the log and prefabricated houses present different features and construction methods, it does not impact the construction and use of utilities. You can install any type of traditional utilities in the house. However, designing a new home is a great opportunity to take a look at clean and green sources.
No, all traditional solutions work fine with log houses.
The U-value, or thermal transmittance, is the rate of heat transfer through the structure. The rate will vary depending on the building structure, material, thickness of wood and insulation. The better the insulation of the building is, the lowest the thermal transmittance will be. The U-value thus indicates if a building is efficient when retaining the thermal energy and shows the quality of the insulation. For wooden log, the average U-value of a 180 mm log is estimated at 0,60 W/m²K, meaning that this value can easily be decreased and reached 0,17 W/m²K if the insulation is adapted.
A prefabricated external wall element with wooden facade presents a U-value of 0,16 W/m² whereas the U value of a prefab external wall elements with plastered facade reaches 0,13 W/m²K.
