And what is includes into this warranty?How many times do we have to treat the wood from the outside and with what?Regards Jean.

A : None of the services are laid in the cabin. It is best to surface mount and cover.As long as the cellar provided a firm and level base onto which the cabin was positioned then there should be no problem - you would need to consult with a structural engineer for peace of mind.The warranty on all untreated wood is five years - looked after with regular treatment, your cabin will last esily in excess of 15 years

Q : Hello,Can you please tell me what to screw the 2 part fascia boards to. Mine have come in 2 parts with nothing in the centre to fit to. Does the rain wash over the top of it or should there be a gap between the felt & boards? Is it supposed to be flush with the felt?Thanks, Mick Marshall

A : The fascia board should be attached to the gable fascia and into the ends of the roof boards. There is a diamond shaped piece of wood that fits over the join. It is good practise to position the felt 5mm over the edge of the fascia board so that the waterfalls straight to the ground rather than run down the front of the fascia.

A : The bearers can be fixed to the concrete base using a hammer frame fixture. The first row of logs should be screwed into the bearers. Yes, any cavity size can be manufactured. There is a small increase in price due to the bespoke nature of this request.


A : The Clovelly 3x3 has windows either side of the double doors and on one side

Q : Can you please advise the standard 5 x 5 Wales Log Cabin with the standard height I believe of 2700cm,would I need planning permission ?

Q : I am very interested in the Luton log cabin. However can you supply it in 5m width x 3m depth.I have inquired with other suppliers who are happy to do this size.

Q : does the cabin come with roofing felt. Also I live just beside Glasgow airport but your shipping classes PA codes as Scottish Highlands do i get delivery at the Uk Mainland Rate?

A : The cabin does not come with any roofing material. We offer the shingles as an option. Sorry - our hauliers dictate the shipping rates and the post code PA falls into the higher bracket

Q : Does the standard price include two windows and the doors or are any of these extras? Many Thanks

A : Yes, the Wales 4x4 has a set of double doors and double window on the front elevation and one double window that can be positioned on either side.The only additions will be some screws and nails and roofing felt

Q : Is there any insulation in the floor or roof with this cabin? If not can you suggest an alternative that does?

A : No, the size quoted does not include the canopy.

A : Yes, this is not a problem. To add another set of doors and window to match the front wall will be £320 incl VAT (You will need to cut the logs in wall A to accommodate these)

Q : Hi,please can you clarify how your cabins are delivered? Do they come as wall panels which lock together or as separate logs which are then joint to make walls. I have a conservatory which leads into back garden which upon delivery the cabin would have to fit through so panels maynot be an option. Many Thanks

A : Most cabins, including the Wales 3x4 are separate log components

Q : the external size of 3190 x 3190 does this include the canopy size as well? or do we add it to 3190thanks

A : The size 3190 x 3190 is the cabin dimensions. The canopy is in addition to this

A : All the glazing is single glazed glass.Lead time is currently 4 weeks

Q : if i paid for the wales 4/3 this week when would it arrive ? Does it have a locks on the doors and windows. regards gina

A : Currently delivery is between 2 and 4 weeks.The door has a mortice and latch, the windows have a standard lever arm system

Q : can we have this model with no internal walls, and an open upper bedroom only

A : Unfortunately not, all the external wall logs are cut to accommodate the cross braces for the internal walls.

Q : what are delivery timescales like at the moment for this one ?if i add the shingles pack at the bottom, is that enough to cover the entire cabin ?

A : Delivery is generally withn 4 weeks of the order being placed. The shingles price provides sufficent material to cover the roof

Q : If i dont have a window in either side of the cabin how would that reflect in the price.

A : Badly !The kit comes with the windows as standard. By removing the side window, you would need to purchase additional full length logs to fill the void

Q : Does the wood need to be treated?And how long do you think they will last?

A : Yes, all external timbers will need to have regular treatment (according to paint manufacturers instructions) for the cabin to last in excess of 15 years

Q : what are the windows glazed with ?what is delivery time on the Clovelly 4 x 3

A : The Clovelly cabin has single glazed windows in glass.Current lead time is approx. 3 to 5 weeks

Q : I see you do a 3x3 in the Clovelly is it possible for you to do a 3 wide by 4 long and if so at what price.This 35mm log has double tongue and groove what are the advantages over the single.Some of the lower parts are pressure treated is the majority of the building untreated and if so what do you recommend as a treatment and at what frequency.

A : Sorry, we only stock the 3x3 and 4x3 Clovelly cabin. The double groove provides a greater surface for each log to bond therefore resulting in greater strength and insulation

Q : Hi, just wondering whether the configuration of the side windows was flexible; can I decide at installation stage which side of the front the side windows can go?thanks

A : Yes, you can position the window in either side wall and the front wall can be constructed with the door to the left or right

Q : Does it come with bolts to fix it to the concrete base, and if not, can you recommend what would be appropriate?

A : The kit does not come with fixings for base attachment. In most cases, this is unnecessary as the weight of the cabin will keep it in place. If you feel your location demands these fixings then suggest a frame fixing of sorts from somewhere like Screwfix

Q : can the canopy length be reduced from 1.3m

A : Yes - There is no reason why the canopy length cannot be reduced by shortening the roof joists an equal amount

Q : Do You Need Planning Permission For A House This Size?

A : Unfortunately there is nothing available "off the shelf" for this cabin

Q : do you have to have internal walls? interested in external only

A : The Valmorel with no internal walls is called the Lodge

Q : Is all the glazing double glazed with this model

A : Yes, all our cabins constructed from 44mm or thicker wall logs are double glazed as standard (Not garages)

Q : in the assembly instructions it shows you have to screw all the wall logs. In most kits I have seen the logs just fit together. Is this necessary or just an extra safety measure

A : In our opinion, it is not necessary to screw the wall logs together. Without screwing, this allows the boards to move freely according to their moisture content.

Q : Do you deliver to Ireland?

A : Sorry, no

Q : Hi,I'm hoping to buy a Devon 4m x 4m log cabin but I need to check a few sizes first. How big does the base have to be as the base timbers are 4.1m long?The cabin will be in the corner of a garden, how far does the base need to be from the border so that the roof does not overhang the fence?

A : A base that is 4m x 4m will be sufficient.The roof overhangs the walls by approx 200mm

Q : If we move house is this (and other similar log cabins) able to be moved as well? Or once assembled can it not be moved? Many thanks.

A : Yes - we can supply an addtional solid door (including the framework, hinges and locks) for £156.00 (currently) You would need to cut the logs in the side you wished to position the door.

Q : Can you tell me if the front door and window can be reversed?Many thanks

A : Yes - you can position the window and door either way during installation

Q : are these houses recommended for full time living in,how would i heat one and do you know about planning requirements

There are a number of ways you can heat a cabin including electric, gas and natural fuels such as a wood burner.You wuld need to contact your local planning office to establish their requirements

Q : what fixings will i need for the cabin. will 13mm clout nails do for the roof shingles. and will i get full instructions for assembley thanks

A : You will need approx 200 screws for the door and window frames and approx. 800 nails for the roof and floor boards. 13mm clout nails will be fine for the shingles. Full assembly guide is provided with the cabin

Lay your roofing material, shingles or otherwise onto the plywood.
