All the details you need are available on each product, including dimensions and material.
What is a log cabin?
A log Cabin is usually constructed from log boards which interlock, similar to a wooden shed but stronger. It is highly robust and crafted to perfection, improving the overall look of your garden. A log cabin can be used for almost anything, including a home gym, office, workshop or an outside bar. These bring endless entertainment and allow you to style how you see fit.
What are the main benefits of Log Cabins?
Creating a focal point: Log cabins have a rustic look that catches the eye. The solid logs add warmth and create an inviting atmosphere, creating a cosy and peaceful haven.
Durable and long-lasting: The logs used for cabins are highly durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions. Log cabins are a long-term investment that can last many years.
Low maintenance: If you treat your log cabin correctly, maintaining it will be a breeze. Your log cabin will be resistant to decay and rot, providing you re-stain and seal it once a year to hold its beauty for the long term.
Sustainable: Log cabins are environmentally friendly, crafted from renewable materials and sourced from sustainable forests, reducing the carbon footprint.
Establish a deeper bond with Nature: Relaxation and a peaceful, tranquil environment go hand in hand with a log cabin. A retreat in your back garden to connect with nature can reduce stress levels.
Energy Efficient: Log cabins are very well insulated. The thermal mass of the logs helps keep an ambient temperature. You can keep cool on a hot summer’s day and warm on a cold winter’s night, reducing energy bills.
Investment Value: Log cabins are unique and appealing, grabbing buyers’ interest. Renters and holidaymakers will be drawn in to generate income when not in use.
Customise to your style: Log cabins can be customised to your needs, with many styles and sizes available to choose from.
Do I need a base for a log cabin?
Once you have decided where to place your log cabin, you will need a base in place beforehand. Log cabins are heavy and need to be placed or a level surface that is strong enough to hold it. A concrete base or flat, solid paving slabs would be the best option.
Another option is a plastic grid base. Its essential to level the ground to the best of your ability before placing the base down. Plastic bases are easier to install and are a better option for most homeowners.
