About us

Astel Group – more than 70 years of experience in timber log house manufacturing

Our factories have well over a hundred years of collective experience, but our longest running venture is our timber log house factory in Rakvere, which has continuously produced milled log houses for over 70 years – making it the oldest wooden house factory in the Baltic states.

We are proud to have this kind of experience in Astel Group, because timber is the most sustainable building material available– and we have the knowledge to make it into high quality products for our clients from around the world.

Under different brand names we cover the whole range of log and timber frame houses – from garages, carports, saunas and garden houses to squared log houses, prefabricated wall element houses and modular buildings for businesses. Having handed the experience of wooden house manufacturing down from generation to generation, we have established excellence which is valued across the globe. Some of our timber log products are:

  • Cottages
  • Garden houses
  • Cabins
  • Pavilions
  • Playhouses
  • Garages
  • Carports
  • Sheds
  • Weekend houses
  • Camping houses
  • Log cabins
  • Barrel saunas
  • Hot tubs
  • Prefab wall element houses
  • Gazebos

Astel’s main area of expertise is manufacturing products made of timber, such as garden houses, sheds, holiday houses, garages, carports, saunas etc. We develop, design, produce and deliver buildings all over the world. While our primary market is Europe, we have exported to Japan, Asia, Canada, Africa, Australia and other parts of the world. 

Our two factories in Räpina have a production area of 8000m2, and our production complex in Rakvere has over 6000m2 of indoor production space.

In addition to structures themselves, we also produce the windows, doors, terraces, stairs and barriers for our various products.


Our portfolio includes hundreds of thousands of summer, garden and private houses. Although we have an extensive portfolio and house catalogue with a wide range of different products, we are flexible – most of our products are custom-made according to our clients’ blueprints. We can also adapt our preexisting products to the needs and wishes of our customers.

We mainly use Nordic spruce as a building material because of its durability and high quality. Our
suppliers are FSC certified and the Astel Group has the FSC certificate for sales and production of garden houses, which enables us to guarantee the highest possible level quality. In addition to flexible delivery and payment options, we can customize product characteristics to fit your specific needs. That includes: 

  • design
  • wall thickness
  • labeling
  • packaging
  • roof covering material
  • other components (roof and floorboards, type and quality of doors and windows).

As a wholesale customer, you can also benefit from seasonal price stability, direct product tracking, storage possibility and quick and efficient customer support.

If you prefer, we can deliver our products directly to the final customer, whether that is you or one of your clients.
