Build a log cabin and its base on sustainable foundations
If you are planning to build a log cabin, not only do you have many log cabin designs to choose from, but your log cabin foundation options and log cabin base designs are also extensive.
Which log cabin base should I choose? Do you use a log cabin concrete base, a log cabin timber base, or a plastic base for a log cabin? Are you building a wooden cabin, an off grid cabin or a modern cabin?
At RADIX, we make life simple. With our eco-friendly foundations, whether they come from our ground screw range or screw pile range (for heavier loads and deeper foundations), we can rapidly install your foundations for a log cabin and manufacture the log cabin base as well.
We have installation teams throughout the United Kingdom and have installed foundations for log cabins from the Highlands to the South of England. No matter the location, the terrain, the slope of the land, or however difficult the access is, our teams can guarantee robust and secure foundations for your new cabin.
Our expertise in foundations covers many applications, so if you are building a cabin, a holiday lodge, a glamping site, or a summerhouse, or you just need foundations for a house or house extension, we can help you. Speak with us, and see how we can benefit you. We will generate a quote for you, and you can then make an informed choice.
The advantages of using screw foundations when building a log cabin
What a great company, they did an absolutely fabulous job in a tricky site position for my log cabin base. The area was surrounded by established trees with some major roots none of this caused any problems. 20 ground screws fitted and wooden base secured in one day.
A really fantastic, fast, and excellent base has been built with zero fuss and is perfect for our log cabin that will be installed in the next few days. We considered a concrete base: this is so much better.
Installing your log cabin foundations and log cabin base frame
Do you know how to build a log cabin foundation and log cabin base? Well, you don’t need to, as our certified installers can take care of everything for you. We will plan out the layout of your log cabin foundations, survey the site, load test, and install strong and secure foundations that will for last years to come.
- Contact us with your cabin plans and details
We need as much information as possible and ideally a plan for the cabin you want to install on our screw foundations.
- Log cabin foundation assessment and layout
We will assess the project, and with further information we gather, we can then plan the layout of the log cabins foundations and subframe.
- Choosing the best screws for your cabin
We will provisionally choose the best screws for your project based on the load and ground conditions. For sloped land or if we need to go deeper we may use extendable screw piles. Load testing results will give us the data we need to choose correctly.
- Preparing the site for screw installation
When the day comes to do your log cabins foundations, we will prepare the ground for installation. We check for underground obstacles and make sure our screw selection is correct. We mark out the layout, heights and optimal alignments, as our plan would have indicated.
- Installing your cabin foundations
Installing the screws is fast and easy with our skilled installers and top-of-the range installation equipment. Your log cabin foundations will be ready in no time, the log cabin base can be attached, and then your cabin can go on top.

Stop digging and using concrete foundations for log cabins, it’s time to change
There is no need to use concrete foundations for your log cabin, holiday lodges, glamping site, or many other buildings.
Times have changed, and we can build quicker, better, and more sustainable foundations. Ground screws vs. concrete is an easy argument to win, but we need you to stop digging, and move with the times.
