Our experienced team of craftsmen are on hand and willing to help you create an insulated garden room which is entirely unique to you and the perfect fit to your garden.

BEWARE OF CHEAP IMITATIONS

  • The fully insulated garden room features high-grade 44mm interlocking planned and finished scandinavian redwood logs – beware of garden buildings that feature rough edged boards machined from poor quality timber.
  • Features a specially designed 4-way chamfered notch-joint system ensuring a tight fit to all boards with no room for damp or wind penetration – beware of log cabins that feature square cut logs with square notch-joint, often leaving a sloppy joint with large visible gaps.
  • Features factory fitted pressure treated weatherproof heavy duty floor joists – beware of log cabins with untreated floor joists which offer no protection against damp penetration at floor level or worse still cabins that come with no floor joists at all.
  • Features heavy duty premium shingle roofing as standard – beware of log cabins that come with no roof covering or cheap felt, leaving the log cabin completely open to the elements.
  • Features oversized extra large doors and windows – most competitor log cabins use narrow doors which can prove difficult for access.
  • Features key-lockable opening windows and all doors and windows are professionally draft sealed – beware of log cabins with cheap, ill-fitting doors and windows that cannot be properly secured and are susceptible to the weather.
  • Features high quality glazing which is factory silliconed and internally beaded to all doors and windows – beware of log cabins that feature lesser quality materials and provide no window beading.
  • Features a generous all round roof overhang which protects the building from severe conditions – beware of log cabins with little or no roof overhanging leaving them vulnerable to the wind and rain.
