• Neal Brice who purchased a Rumus 5x4 Log Cabin said "Overall, I am very pleased with the cabin. I have yet to fit the doors and windows mainly due to bad weather delaying work(not your fault I know). A few small issues would have made construction easier though; The long 5mm drill supplied was poor quality and bent, these are not easy to come by but eventually sourced one from RS COMPONENTS, the amount of screws supplied seemed to be insufficient and the instructions for their positioning was unclear, one of the long wall logs was too tall and had to be cut down in order for the roof boards to sit properly(I have pictures if needed). As mentioned these are small issues but made the build run less smoothly than I would have liked."
  • Nick Ray who purchased a Club House Log Cabin said "Great service and thanks for the prompt delivery. Your price was in line with the retail price on the manufacturer's website, other retailers were quoting a vastly inflated mark-up. I'm now just waiting for a sunny day to put it together!"
  • Lorraine Taylor who purchased a Rumak 4x3 Log Cabin said "Really pleased that I didn't need anybody here to help off load the cabin like first suggested to me "
  • Mr Cooper who purchased a Club House Log Cabin said "Very pleased with our new garden cabin. An easy transaction"
  • Mr Stewart who purchased a Camborne 5x3 Log Cabin said "Delivery was fine, apart from the fact it was a day early. Product Quality - in general quality is good. Product is pretty much as described, with the exception of the flooring. Overall, I am satisfied, the general quality is good. I hope this is all taken as constructive feedback, because I have already recommended you to several people, and overall am happy with my purchase."
  • Mr Wylie who purchased a Classic 2 Log Cabin said "Very pleased with my new garage. Exceptional value"

Garden Log Cabins

Base Preparation for Log Cabins and Garden Offices

  • A well prepared, level base is required to ensure a long lasting installation.
  • A variety of materials can create a solid base, such as, concrete, railway sleepers, or paving slabs positioned on hardcore.
  • Buildings should always have a base as large as the floor (base sizes are given in the technical details for each building). The base sizes given will give you a base that will be approximately in line with the outside walls of the Garden Office or Log Cabin. This allows for better drainage.
  • If you plan to build a concrete base you can either build one large slab of concrete or strip foundations running perpendicular to the bearers. Strip foundations will give better drainage, though you will need to use some kind of membrane to prevent the plants that are growing in between the concrete strips from coming through the floor boards.
  • Final finish of your base level should be 20-50mm above ground level.

Typical Build Sequence

Tools

  • Good quality DIY hand tools such as drills, hammer, screwdrivers, level, tape measure, saw and a ball of string (to check the diagonals)

Treatment

  • Timber is a natural product. It will contract and expand with various weather conditions. If left untreated it will deteriorate. You will need to treat your Log Cabin as you assemble it and periodically after that in order to maintain and prolong it’s beauty and life
