LOG CABINS - THE BENEFITS: Log cabins are popular for many reasons, especially as a comfortable garden room to sit and relax in but also as a workshop or heavy duty storage shed. On the outside cabins have a chunky look and feel. On the inside, with no internal framework, the clean lines look smarter than the inside of a traditional shed or summerhouse. In addition, the wall logs are thicker than the shiplap cladding used in traditional sheds and summerhouses, which provides better insulation. If you want the option of winter use we recommend floor and roof insulation. Insulation is difficult to fit retrospectively so it needs to be fitted with the cabin. We offer low price insulation packs complete with fixings and instructions. Double glazing also improves the insulation especially if the cabin has a large glazed area. Another significant benefit of log cabins is that you get more wood for your money when compared with a traditional shed or summerhouse or garden office. With no prefabricated wall panels a log cabin requires less factory time.

NORDIC SPRUCE: This log cabin is manufactured from 100% Nordic Spruce, the best quality timber used in log cabin construction. Nordic Spruce is grown primarily in the well managed forests of Scandinavia, Siberia and the coldest parts of Northern Europe. The cold climate ensures slow growth. The growth rings are much closer together than trees grown in warmer climates. As a result the timber is heavy and durable with a dense grain pattern. These forests are expertly managed on a sustainable basis so Nordic Spruce is an enviromentally friendly choice.

NATURAL WOOD: First, high grade timber is dried in kilns until it reaches the optimum moisture content, then it is planed smooth and machined into tongued and grooved logs and boards. Next the logs are precisely machined at the ends to ensure a precise fit. Finally, each cabin is carefully packed and wrapped. When you unwrap it the wood is untreated. We recommend treating it only after the cabin has been successfully installed and ideally within a week or two. Treating the logs before fitting may cause the wood to swell up and the logs may not fit together correctly. If you are fitting your cabin in a restricted space where future access will be difficult you can stain the logs during installation by reaching down a few logs at a time as you fit them.

FULLY INTERLOCKING LOG CORNERS: These traditionally made log cabins feature interlocking corner logs. Each wall log is precisely machined and notched out to ensure a strong and weatherproof joint. The first log is laid at the bottom and the rest slot into each other, working upwards one log at a time. No screws or nails are required which makes installation easier and also allows for timber movement. The finished corner assembly is not only immensely strong but also weatherproof and draughtproof. If possible cabins with interlocking logs should be treated after assembly. Treating the logs on site before fitting requires considerable care. If swollen the precision milled joints may not slot together.

WEATHERPROOF DOUBLE GROOVED LOGS: Thinner wall logs feature a single tongue and groove but thicker logs feature a double tongue and groove. The double tongue and groove provides a stronger and more weatherproof joint.

CHAMFERRED TOP WALL LOGS: This high specification apex roof log cabin features a subtle quality feature. The top log in each side wall is chamferred to the same angle as the roof slope. This little detail provides much improved insulation and draughtproofing. It also provides a much neater internal appearance and the roof boards are easier to fix. This simple design feature eliminates an obvious cold spot. The benefits of this feature are magnified if roof insulation is specified.

STORM BARS: Storm bars are an important quality feature. One obvious benefit is that storm bars help to protect your log cabin from wind damage. In addition, by clamping the logs together storm bars make the joints more weatherproof and reduce any bowing or twisting of the logs. The storm bars are easily fitted at each corner to hold the individual logs together tight. This counters the impact of strong winds. This feature is especially useful if the cabin has a large roof overhang which is exposed to the wind. Many log cabins do not include any storm bars. These timber storm bars feature elongated fixing holes to allow for timber movement. The bolts are easily accessible after installation so they can be tightened or loosened as required to allow for any timber movement.

JOINERY DOORS & WINDOWS: These log cabins feature joinery made door leaves and window sashes with morticed and tenoned joints throughout. This traditional jointing process is commonly used in the housebuilding industry when timber windows and doors are specified. A rebate or mortice is cut out in one piece of wood which precisely matches a tongue or tenon cut in the other piece of wood. Morticed and tenoned joints are the strongest type of joint used in the construction of wooden windows and doors. High quality handles, locks and hinges are also included.

LAMINATED DOORS AND WINDOWS: Laminated wood is an engineered structural timber. Precisely machined small sections of wood are glued together under high pressure with strong waterproof adhesive. After extensive machining the finished piece of timber is barely distinguishable from real wood - it is real wood, but it is stronger and less likely to warp or twist. Doors and windows made with laminated timber are less prone to distortion. This is because one piece of wood can move erratically while many pieces of wood counteract each other. It is rare to find laminated doors and windows specified in a log cabin due to the high production cost. This is an important quality feature because in a log cabin the doors and windows are a vital component which is particularly exposed to the elements. Laminated timber is also kind to the environment because it uses offcuts and creates less waste.

NO FINGER JOINTS: Finger-jointed timber is widely used in log cabin construction. The principle of finger jointed timber is the same as laminated timber, with small pieces of wood joined together. However, finger jointed timber features jagged comb shaped joints which are clearly visible. In addition, the individual pieces of finger jointed wood are free to move independently from each other. Over time gaps may form at the finger joints as the individual pieces of wood separate. Laminated timber is much rarer in log cabin construction and superior in performance and appearance.

SIZES - LENGTH AND WIDTH: The sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear. The length refers to the side walls. The sizes listed are the external wall sizes. These sizes do not include the roof overhang.
