A Homeseeker - built Finnish Log Homes log cabin makes a splash at the 2012 Southampton Boat Show
The much talked-about Homeseeker-built, Finnish Log Homes (FLH) 'Contemporary' lodge was a popular attraction at the 44th Southampton Boat Show on 14-23 September.
Held in Mayflower Park in Southampton and set against the splendour of one of Europe’s largest purpose-built marinas, the Boat Show attracted more than 100,000 visitors over the ten day period.
Chris Mayhew, Managing Director of FLH, said the Boat Show is an important event for Finnish Log Homes: "We have been exhibiting at the Boat Show for six years and once again we were extremely delighted with the turn-out this year."
Displayed adjacent to the main marina, the Homeseeker-built Contemporary wowed Boat Show audiences with its clean lines and modern style. Apart from being constructed from natural Scandinavian logs sourced from sustainable forests, the central features of this memorable design are the expansive panes of glass. This creates a light, bright interior and enables stunning views of the surrounded landscape from all of the rooms.
Chris Mayhew continued: "The Contemporary is a very eye-catching home and visitors were very complimentary about its style and layout. The Boat Show has generated a high level of interest with 21 private orders and a sale to a park home."
The collaboration with Homeseeker means FLH will benefit from the massive manufacturing capacity offered by Homeseeker’s world class Rushden manufacturing capability while, in return, Homeseeker gains increased production volume and greater market penetration.
"With the huge level of interest generated at the Boat Show for the Contemporary, we are expecting volume orders for parks, lake properties and hotel locations," Chris added. "We have requests to design and quote for the education sector as well as enquiries for our larger log buildings and two storey versions of the Contemporary."
Todd Misselbrook, Homeseeker Area Sales Manager, was at the show and concluded: "The Finnish Contemporary built at our Rushden facility represents the very best in Homeseeker build quality and Finnish style. We are pleased to support Finnish Log Homes in their construction programme and look forward to a long and rewarding relationship."
