Yeah I know this is gonna go freezing but it's a deal all the same and some of these look great value (the Helsinki is £1725 cheaper than from Screwfix). Imagine one of these instead of a conservatory in the garden with a pool table in it, class.
So anyway, let the cold voting commence with no cheaper alternative mentioned.

Just noticed the first order CAT09 voucher still works so that takes £686.55 off the total of the Pori log cabin plus a possible 3-4% cashback via quidco or topcashback. So £3890.45 plus £116.71 - £155.61 cashback so possibly £3734.84

You want the home office ones with built in insulation - just need to add plumbing and and electicity supply and you have a year round hidey-hole from the wife and kids...

Or FOR the wife and kids...now you're talking.

I've had one of these for a few years - personally, I think we should all live in buildings like this. I've insulated the ceiling with kingspan and put real slate tiles on the roof. Change the window for glass and it's a great place to retreat.

I'm on my pc in in right now - armour cabling under the ground. There's no water in it - that would be weird. ;-)

Some of these are quite sizable, would you need planning permission to put them up?

I have just been run through the mill with our planning office as they said I would need planning for a cabin I am about to install 5m x 3m x 2.4M High. they originaly said I would need it but now changed their mind to my expence ..aaarrhhhh.

So the end of the story is .... If the building is over 2.5 meters tall and sits within 2 meters of a boundry you will need planning permission. (my local council anyway). Other than that there was no other stipulation...

Yes, and that damned 2 metre boundary rule has only just increased.
Was 1 Metre till last year.

Back to the cabin..........

I'm sure it looks nice but for that kind of money - and since it is a flatpack (ie self assembly)why not go to local wood yard with a 'Cutting list' and have them deliver it.

I would bet that the cost would be at least £2k LESS and assembling it would be more fun because you designed it yourself.

I think most friendly woodyardsmen would be very happy to help with the design if it means that you are going to buy £2000 worth of timber from them.
#11
Doubt you could source the wood much cheaper as these tend to come from Finland where wood is cheap and they are setup to manufacturer them. There are also several issue with shrinkage / expansion and drainage that need to be taken into account in the design and the established firms have designs that do so.

I have one in garden and assembly was easy, bit like Lego for adults.

You do need to get a suitable base though as wood does not like a lot of movement.

Also best to treat before assembly if possible.

If I had enough room I would have one big enough for the kids to go and play in.

Still seems a bit expensive to me. This place is fairly good for Log Cabin prices and, let's face it, are more specialised than Wickes and therefore more liely to be able to help with any problems arising:

Alas, as my garden is only 4.4 metres wide at the end, it would have to be a very thin cabin to get past the 2m from a boundary planning problem!

Now THAT IS value!!

Just add a bit of decking/balustrade - Et Voilà .
#14
So you do not need planning permission as long as the height is under 2.5m and the structure not within 2m of the boundary??

wow that is quite good of them, I was lead to believe they were overly strict. Is there a limit on the size?

These log cabins would be good as a utility room. I built a brick utility room close to the house many years ago and use the washing machine and tumble dryer in there which saves space in the kitchen. Also have a deep chest freezer and use it for storage too. Quite handy and would be a very affordable idea with one of these £1-2k log cabins. Electricity wouldn't be a problem just drag a waterproof extension cable into the building.

The cabin you posted looks more comparable to this one at wickes for the same money (not including 15% discount and cashback)

Sorry, that link I gave was to the particular one I have been eyeing up for quite a while with the corner patio and this just happens to be similar to the only one at Wickes which is a reasonable price. Upon browsing through the other Wickes ones, they are Q expensive.

Here's some good news though. I found this here:

http://www.theqube.co.uk/footer_pages/planning.php

[B]Planning Permission[/B]

Rules governing outbuildings apply to sheds, greenhouses and garages as well as other ancillary garden buildings such as swimming pools, ponds, sauna cabins, kennels, enclosures (including tennis courts) and many other kinds of structure for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse.
Under new regulations that came into effect on 1 October 2008 outbuildings are considered to be permitted development, not needing planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:
[LIST]
[*]No outbuilding forward of the principal elevation fronting a highway.
[*]Outbuildings and garages to be single storey with maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of four metres with a dual pitched roof or three metres for any other roof.
[*]Maximum height 2.5 metres within two metres of a boundary.[/LIST]Therefore, as long as you aren't out the front by the road and you stay under 2.5m high you can go into the 2m from the boundary zone without planning.

I've been having a look recently at just that sort of thing and found a website that don't seem much more expensive than these ones...

No idea what they're like though.

I am GUTTED I missed this. I keep looking at the 'Pori' and it's perfect for my garden. I wonder what the chances of this coming up again are?
