These are absolutely outstanding products. I have just finished putting ours up and am blown away by the quality of the product. Was very dubious about spending so much but so glad we did.

Brilliant and can’t recommend highly enough
Anyone looking at buying a log cabin. Keep an eye on this site. They sometimes have a 5m x 5m for £2100ish. It is single glazed tho and 34mm thick. That's all customizable though. It's the cheapest site I've seen for log cabins.

It’s solid as a rock and so thick I’m convinced it’ll hold temperature well. The longest parts to complete are the frame base which is crucial to get right and square so the rest slots together easily (which is a genius design in itself, goes up so quick when you’re slotting in the walls) and the roof is slow but competent DIYer should be able to do it in a day on your own. The windows and doors are double glazed and the fixtures and fittings all seem high quality and rugged yet elegant.

This may be a stupid question but can I put this at the end of my garden without planning permission?

Yes.

Yes.


Only if its 2 metres from the boundary. Its 5cm to tall otherwise.
Just had a Melbury log cabin from Costco, took two guys four hours to put up and its rock solid. Fabulous quality cabins for the price and nothing else comes close imho,

If it's sited within 1m of the boundary its a max height of 2.5m to the apex and a maximum area of 15sq m. If you go out to 2m from all boundaries you can go up to 4m apex and 30sq m area. If you want to go bigger than 15sq m but you want it close to the boundary it has to be constructed of substantially non combustible materials and requires building control (not planning)

No problem buddy. After doing it do you think its worth laying £700 to them to fit it? I'm quite handy but like u i have a lot on so i wont have many hrs a day.

How long in total do you think it took? 2 man job? Or more

Id personally rather use a days holiday or think of it as earning £700 for say 10 hours work (£70 an hour equivalent is not to be sniffed at). If you really can't find the time I think you'd find a local handyman that could do it for a lot less or even employ a carpenter to do it? Would still be cheaper than £700

Where are you in the country?

London. Sounds like I'll give it ago, hopefully over a weekend. Just need to see if it can fit where i want it too in the garden. Got a baby due in 6 weeks so not sure the Mrs will appreciate my divided attention lol. Appreciate your feedback

If you are building one , run kingspan/celotex insulation on the outside of the roof then fit your shingles on top of it , then fit kingspan on your floor before fitting the floor too. If you need any help with log cabins goto the blog on the tuin deco log cabins website as they are experts in the logcabin field, that's where we got ours and it has been fantastic, built it myself with help from my father took around a day to put up and then did the roof the next day as it was raining the first day. Took me around a week in total with running ethernet, TV aerial, power, wiring in sockets, lights , coating it with treatment etc.

Meant to say if you are fitting the insulation drive longer shingle nails through the shingle the insulation and directly into the roof depending on insulation thickness.

I have a similar one, not from Costco but I think they're all much the same. 3.5 x 5 m with double glazing (3 windows). Myself and one friend put it up over 3 fairly leisurely days without any real problems. As others have said, the build really isn't complex, it's just like a big lego set. The floor and the roof are the two most time consuming bits (would be 1000% better with a nail gun - in retrospect I wish I had just bought one for the job, would've been worth it!). If I were to do it again, I would happily built it myself again (and would probably get it done a day quicker a second time round). But, a couple of other things you should consider though:

1) The base. A good base is so critical if you want it to last. I would say getting a professional in to do the base is much more of a worthwhile consideration than getting someone in for the cabin itself. We have a slightly sloping garden and very hard ground, so any sort of slab base would've been impossible, or at least very difficult. I ended up improvising a stilted timber base on concrete pillars, which turned out brilliantly, but took days and cost be several hundred £ in materials (worth it tho). If you're on the flat a slab base is a much easier solution, but still needs to be done right. Make sure base is a bit bigger than shed - there are some good guides online.

2) It'll turn up in a single massive bundle dropped off in your front garden by a crane-truck. If you have some distance between there and where you're building it consider that you'll be carrying the whole thing from one place to the other piece by piece - that's a job on it's own - took me and a mate a whole morning. Top tip - sort it all into piles of matching pieces during this process - massive help later on. Also be careful of a few pieces that are very nearly, but not quite, the same - don't want to get them mixed up and spend ages looking for them later!

3) Treating / painting the timber - don't forget to factor this in to your calculations. I know some of the cabins are pressure treated, but still think a coat of something is worthwhile. This is another time consuming job - took me a couple of long days on my own.
