How are these log cabins delivered?

  • Your log cabin will arrive as individual boards that slot together. This makes access into your garden, and assembly easy, and this construction gives a strong building with interlocking corners for strength.

What about assembly?

  • These log cabins are simple and easy to build, and we also provide easy-to-follow digital instructions.

What are the different treatment types?

  • Our log cabins are supplied untreated, however we can also supply them with a Tanalised® pressure treatment is where chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot, decay and termites. Pressure treatment gives the wood on your building an extra level of protection and is an effective way of making your building long-lasting. We recommend that a high quality paint/preservative is applied straight away to the untreated cabins, and if you don’t intend to change the colour of your pressure-treated building, then a water-repellent will be ideal.

Do they come with any warranty?

  • Yes, if going with the Tanalised® (pressure-treated) version, then the wood on your log cabin is protected against rot, decay and insect infestation for up to15-years (timber splits or warping, which may occur naturally over time are not covered).

Will my cabin need a base?

  • Yes, all garden buildings should be assembled on a firm and level base, and we always recommend a concrete base where possible. A good, sold, level base will ensure your building goes together easily, and lasts for many, many years. In order to protect your building from moisture, you should leave a 2ft (60cm) gap around the exterior of your building.
