Another design that has stood the test of time, the Clockhouse 4x3 Log Cabin can look great in almost all garden types. Add the Georgian bars for a more cottage garden feel otherwise keep the plain glass in a contemporary environment. In either case, this cabin won't disappoint and you will enjoy its stylish design.

The standard design has tall windows on both sidewalls but should you only require one, then contact the office and we can get a set of revised drawings and quote for you to consider.

Optional Items to Compliment Your Cabin :

Glazing Options

Double glazing is offered in three options.

Your choice should be made by considering the building use, for example will it be used 12months of the year.

All year round points more towards Superior and Premium, a summer house really only needs to use the Standard fit. Your location will also have a bearing on which to choose - How cold does it get where you live. Scotland has far more cold days than the South East of England, for example. And budget will play a part. The better options do cost more !

In each option, the glass panes are 3mm thick and the double glazing filled with Argon Gas. What varies across the options is the divide width between panes of glass. This ranges from 6mm up to 20mm. In simple terms, the greater the cavity the more efficient and insulating the double glazing becomes.

Door and window furniture also improves with the options

  • Standard : 3-6-3
  • Superior : 3-10-3
  • Premium : 3-20-3

Note :

  • Standard glazing has side hung windows that open outward
  • Superior and Premium windows utilise a tilt and turn hinge mechanism that allows the window to either hinge at the bottom, or on the side. In both cases, the window opens inwards.
  • The double window units have a tilt and turn mechanism one one leaf and the other leaf does not open.


Roof Covering Options

Our cabin kits all come without any roofing material to weather proof the structure. We offer both felt shingles and EPDM as options, but you are most welcome to find alternatives locally to you.

Felt Shingles

Selecting this option will provision enough felt shingles to cover the roof with some to spare if laid correctly.

Felt shingles are available in four colours - Green / Grey / Red / Black.

Bourne Green Felt ShinglesBourne Green
Bourne Grey Felt ShinglesBourne Grey
Bourne Red Felt ShinglesBourne Red
Bourne Black Felt ShinglesBourne Black

Standard packs have 17 pieces at 1000mm x 330mm.

If available, ridge and starter row tiles are 1000mm x 250mm and each pack contains 20 pieces covering up to 20 linear metres to line the roof edge or 12 linear metres of overlapped ridge. Note : Not all colours are available as Ridge and Starter tiles, in which case enough standard shingles will be supplied to use for this purpose.

Felt shingles require a minimum 11 degree roof pitch. It is advised to use an underlay for all pitches between 8 and 11 degrees. It is not advised to use felt shingles on a ptich less than 8 degrees.

Construction

Felt shingles

  1. Base - glass-fibre felt
  2. Improved bitumen modified with SBS polymers
  3. Basalt sprinkle
  4. Adhesive, frost-resistant polymeric bitumen bulk

You can see how to fit them on our page, fitting bitumen felt shingles


EPDM Kit

The EPDM Kit provisions all you need to apply EPDM to your roof including a one piece rubber sheet and glues.

Benefits of EPDM for rubber roofing

  • Totally inert and UV stable
  • Will not crack or perish
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Cold applied
  • Can be used on a flat roof
  • Virtually maintenance free

20 Year Guarantee - Life Expectancy of 50 Years

Felt shingles are available in four colours - Green / Grey / Red / Black

  • Firestone E.P.D.M is a high performing synthetic rubber membrane offering a unique combination of features and benefits.
  • Quick and Easy Installation - Available in large sheet sizes anything up to 12.5m x 30m, resulting in fewer field seams and less installation time.
  • Superior Weatherability and Durability - Due to its composition, essentially EPDM polymers and carbon black, Firestone EPDM offers unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation, and ultimately ageing. Life expectancy of 50+ years !
  • High Flexibility and Elongation - Firestone EPDM remains flexible at temperatures down to -45 degrees and can elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and temperature fluctuations.
  • Low Life-cycle Cost - Firestone EPDM requires little or no maintenance. This feature combined with the inherent durability and competitive installed cost of EPDM roofing systems, result in a very low life-cycle cost.
  • Environmentally Friendly - Firestone EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact during manufacture and use of the product.

Toughened Glass

We offer a toughened glass upgrade to the standard glazing.

This option upgrades all glazing in both doors and windows


Composite Bearer Upgrade

Your cabin is constructed on a bearer framework. The bearer framework keeps it off the ground and away from moisture that could get into the timber and cause problems over time.

Composite bearers replace the standard wooden items supplied with the kit.

The main benefit of using a composite bearer is that they are highly resistant to moisture, rot, and insects. This means they are less likely to warp, twist, or decay over time and helps to ensure the longevity and durability of the bearer framework.

Composite bearers are also easy to work with and install. They can be cut and shaped using standard woodworking tools and they can be secured to the underlying substructure using screws or nails.

Dimensions - 3.0m x 40mm x 40mm

IMPORTANT - If you choose this upgrade, you will be supplied with sufficient lengths of joist (all 3.0m in length) to create the necessary framework - it will require you to cut the bearers to form the correct dimensions for the framework.

Composite Bearers

Factory Painted Doors and Windows

This upgrade has the external door(s) and window(s) painted at the factory.

The standard frames for Silverline, Superior and Premium doors and windows are all supplied in untreated timber.

Using this upgrade has the doors and windows painted at the factory in one of three colourways :

RAL WhiteRAL GreyRAL Brown

Each window or door unit has two coats of quality paint, sprayed onto all surfaces and allowed to cure before quality checked, packed and made ready for despatch.(Additional coats are applied should this be necessary)

Available in three colourways - check the RAL website for more information.

Guarantee

  • Painted surfaces have a 2 year warranty on the paint and application thereof.
  • The timber construction of the frames carry a 5 year warranty.

Wood Treatment

Your cabin will arrive in an untreated state. Only the base bearers are pretreated. All external surfaces must be treated with an appropriate wood preserver to ensure longevity of your cabin (and to validate warranty)

Here, we are offering the Barrettine Wood Preserver, a solvent based application that we believe to be one of the better products currently available. You may wish to go into the open market place to source your own, just bear in mind with these products "you get what you pay for" ! Spend a lot less and you'll be needing to re-apply the treatment every year. Go to the other end of the scale and some products quote a 10 year life span before the ned to re-apply. "You pays ya money and takes ya choice" !

We have calculated that this cabin requires 5ltrs to apply 3 coats to the external surfaces.

Features and Highlights

  • A high performance, solvent-based exterior wood preservative
  • Perfect for use on sheds, fences, decking, summer houses and other garden wood
  • Protects timber against wood boring insects, wood rotting fungi and blue stain
  • Deep penetrating formula for long lasting protection
  • Contains wax and water repellent resins
  • Low odour

Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver is ideal for most exterior wood care projects, including sheds, fences, exterior windows and frames, doors, carports, shutters, garden gates and more. This product can be used as a standalone treatment or as a base-coat for a protective exterior wood oil or decking oil.

The cabin is of good quality and was very good value as the log cabin walls were upgraded to 45 mm with no additional charges ! Delivery was delayed but it was not the fault of Garden Adventure Ltd .There were minor problems when the cabin was installed but these issues were resolved quickly and in a satisfactory manner. I would use Garden Adventure Ltd again as overall it is a decent organisation.

This Cabin is extremely solid. Thick walls, spacious and great looking. You order your cabin and Martin keeps you informed when it is in the country. You pay half up front and when it is ready to be delivered you pay the balance. Martin is great and answers all your questions quickly. I would definitely sing the praises of these cabins.

We checked out several Log Cabin sites over several weeks – it seemed like a game of chance with so many pros and cons for each company. Luckily for us we chose Garden Adventure and their Clockhouse design. The transaction went like clockwork from the start thanks to Martin whose help and advice played an important part (44mm logs were definitely the right choice!) Delivery was on schedule with the haulier dropping the 1-2 tonnes package exactly where we wanted it. The erectors were helped by an easy-to-follow manual, everything slotted into place and we are thoroughly happy with our new garden retreat. – JB and GB, Essex.
