There is a huge selecton of log cabins includling timber lodges which can be sited in your garden. These can take many forms, from simple utility buildings to clock houses and garden offices. The buildings are delivered on a large pallet to your address. The building is then dispatched and our highly skilled construction assembles the structure on site. This can take anything from a couple of days to a week depending on the size of the building. Final finishing is also taken care of- painting of the outside of the cabin from the myriad of colours available, to finishing the inside to the specification of your choice!
Log Cabin Sheds
Additionally, log cabins can be used as a way of storing stuff in the garden such as garden implements and bikes. With locking doors and windows you can be assured that your items are safe under lock and key. Double doors allow the movement of larger items as they can both be opened outwards giving you maximum wiggle room. A log cabin is a convenient extra space for your home. You can install single or double glazing, keeping the cabin light and airy at all times. Very often when it’s hot outside, the temperature inside the cabin is a little lower, making it the perfect workspace if you need to get out of the house.
The log cabin cabin sheds are constructed from high-grade softwood which provides durability combined with strength and dependability. With a range of stunning colours and finishes the combinations are endless. Simple varnishing will give a more natural, rugged look but you can really go to town on our range of paint finished, where windows, doors and the outside shell of your log cabin shed can be specified individually. Our shed are built to last and any personal belongings you store inside are safely locked away. Consider items such as lawn mowers, bikes and strimmer’s – keeping them away from prying eyes.
Every bloke would like a man cave so why not install one in your garden? The uses are endless, from a garden pub a fully working office, right in your back garden!
Log Cabin Thickness
Buildings are available in either standard 45mm thickness or the thicker 70mm. For the narrower boards, you will find that you will need to allow for insulation as well. You will find the cost of this specified on each of our product pages. For the 70mm thickness, the timber is naturally insulating so you will not need to insulate the walls.
The walls of the building are constructed from cleverly interlocking logs. Each plank has a zigzag edge which neatly locks with its neighbour without any gaps. This stops any cold air getting through providing the perfect join between timbers. If you are unsure about which timer thickness to choose then please speak with us.
