Link please. This deal includes windows with glazing and felt roofing, the cheaper deals don't. And when you add that the final price on the cheaper deals workout much more expensive than this deal. Unless you've found it cheaper with everything that's include here?

Says £5643 here with glazing, felt roof & floor?

Go on, admit you doubted me. Oh wait, your comment gave it away.
Joking aside, I was looking at this earlier in relation to my home business, so I kind of had a head start.

Could this be used as a massage parlour/knocking shop? Form an orderly queue please gentleman.

Surely for the price you can build your own brick garage? Not voting either way :-)

wouldn't like to say how much a brick building of this size would cost, but I think you might have to get planning permission for it?

Well weird indeed, and a bit confusing as well. I might give them a bell tomorrow to see what the difference is, if there is any. I couldn't find any.

Looks a good deal, bought 2

Classic backtrack

Cold
Would not buy something like this from a general diy place.
Would rather hunt out a specialist or go brick & mortar.

Found this for a lot cheaper

Great to lock the mother in law in!

Hi - I have been looking at Log Cabins for months now.

Things I have learnt.........

Summer Houses are just that - only for use in the Summer - LOG CABINS tend to be for all year round use if......
You get at least 44mm Log - and also some degree of insulation - floor is a must - but roof as well if you can afford.
Mine is being installed in 3 weeks - I am useless at DIY and paid for installation/insulation.
The size I have gone for is 4.8m wide x 3m depth as we only have a smallish garden.
Everything included is £4000.
Bought locally from a company in Manchester.

I looked at all the sites (1click, Dunster House, Tuin etc etc) - but what surprised me was that nobody (apart from who I ordered with) would send me out a sales guy to look at the space I had and make recommendations etc - bizarre when you are spending so much money.

So the local firm with the personal touch got my order - they are called Crossley Log Cabins - this is NOT a recommendation of them as mine isn't going in for 3 weeks - but they include double glazing etc and because they actually manufacture them they changed the specs slightly to give me a small storage room on the side for lawn mower etc.

Dave

Right, lets boot up pc and check out hot deals...

Need a HDMi cable should be one cheap, let me think need a Hannibal Lecter box set great one on here!! Oh and 50 ABSOLUTELY FREE photos from SNAP FISH!!

Having had a Log Cabin as a home office for around 5 years now I just wanted to give you some warning that all round use is only true with some caveats! Mine is also 44mm and fully insulated roof and floor (actually double insulated floor with floorboards on top of additional insulation) but the fact remains in the middle of winter it is freezing and in summer it is boiling! I had air con/heating unit fitted to try and alleviate the problems but even with this you still need to have it running almost constantly during cold/hot periods as the heat leaks out in winter and the cool air the same in summer (peak)

Just wanted to share as anyone who thinks a log cabin is totally usable all year without major additional effort will be very disappointed! Having said this it was one of the best things I ever bought/did to move my office outside of the house/family environment and keeps the two as separate as they can be!

The difference is in the flooring. Shed floor on the B&Q tongue and groove flooring on the Wickes. Thanks to Marty1981 for clearing that up for us.

You'll need planning permission for something this size



why?

trust me, these are not easy to put together. You will need to ensure you have a concrete base (foundation) and check access to your garden as this won't go through any garage/front door. All in all if you want a log cabin look then its not a bad deal but if you are looking to build something at the end of the garden for storage/granny flat then you will save more with a brick build. Also insulation is not great on these, you would need to get it insulated which is a job in itself.

It's not something any woman has said to me, but I await the day.

It's a shed with 4.4cm walls, with single glazed windows. Boiling in the Summer and freezing in the winter. You need to spend a lot of money insulating it, ideally with celotex all round, then you have the issue of hiding the insulation. If your going to have a garden room do it properly, but will cost more money and you will find it will get used.
