About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Tuin Truus log cabin, I spend a lot of time in here...
Really well designed, well manufactured and absolutely solid, Tuin are great to deal with. Their guides on installation, bases, treatment and anything else you'd need to know are excellent.

We have a corner sofa, bar, pool table and 6 extra stools and there's plenty of cueing room..
It's a lot of money, but it's absolutely worth it for the space and environment it creates, insulate the floor and roof and it's useable all year round, we added a small wall mounted electric heater for the winter and the bar was built by a friend.

Treated with Sadolin wood preserve over a year ago and it's 'as new'.

The Truus Log Cabin features as standard:

  • 45mm interlocking wall logs
  • Double Glazed
  • Double conical tongue and groove for stability
  • Double door

  • Quality door and window fittings

    For those with uneven land and don't want to fully pave the area, I've successfully used breeze blocks in the ground (a generous amount dotted around the area for better stability) and then raised and levelled the cabin / shed with 'Jouplast' risers (or similar). Didn't cost much (~£250) but a good weekend to get right. Been fine for 2 years.

    Will let a friend know as apparently one of his relatives is about to start some nutty idea of building something like this with gumtree, fb marketplace, etc "bargain buys", lol sounds like a disaster in the making but certainly yours is an idea to make a big saving on the base. Can those risers really support that sort of weight?

    For someone who lives with their parents, can you comfortably live in this full time? The cost of this is equal to a years worth of rent (around £600). Can a shower and toilet be fitted into this? I don't mind going into the main house for the cooking, proper bath ect

    You need planning permission of you are adding plumbing to an outbuilding

    Out of curiosity, does anyone in such a trade know how much it would cost to do something like this, around the same size, by yourself?
    Cumbrian.Hammer's avatar
    Mine is a slightly different kind of build, with insulation, heating and lighting included, so not an ideal comparison for build pricing…but the cost from muddy garden area to completion as per picture was just under £3k…so not cheap.I would assume that Tuin build would be a fair bit cheaper.49232884-t8Hv9.jpg

    wouldn't everything inside condensate over in winter and then go mouldy unless you heat the place and looking at the pictures I'm not sure how you would insulate this either.
    PsychoSonny's avatar
    Condensation and mould isn't a heat issue. It's a ventilation issue.

    You can easily batten the floor, walls and roof and then insulate before covering in your choice of finish be it insulated plasterboard or something else.

    Heating isn't an issue either if you insulate properly a small fan heater should be enough. I have a 2kw one from meaco.

    If the first picture with the pool table is a photo of the space then its great what you have done with it!

    Can I ask where you got the pool table and what size it is? (edited)
    pabosotf123's avatar
    If you want full size 7X4 pool table, I would always recommend going for a Supreme Winner. By far the most common pub and club pool table in the UK. Serious players pretty much always look for these for practise tables as it's the same table that they will play their competitions on. Like lots of things prices have increased a lot over the last couple of years but look after it and you should easily sell it on without losing much money. (edited)

    I have this log cabin. Its amazing. Use it as a home gym

    Great company and quality products. The only downside I think to them is the flooring, I would install and get my own flooring, but apart from that, for the price (if you can't build one yourself) this are spot on.

    The only problem I can see is that it's bigger than my flat

    Not a log cabin it’s a shed

    is there some reason almost every deal I see on here is for a shed, Lego or some underpowered tool made by worx ... do I need to change something in settings

    Thanks for posting @Totman Love what you've done with yours. Seems such a great space

    Im astounded these companies sell sheds, but don't install them.....

    They slot together. So if you have a base then the only tools required are a rubber mallet and a nail gun

    How do you compare this to something like this hotukdeals.com/dea…449

    I know the one link is plastic but in terms of warmth is the cabin a better option, or in terms of maintenance is the plastic one better? (I know the plastic is more a lean to wall so not the same, just comparing prices/pro/cons)

    I see asding a floor adds a grand plus.

    Glad you didn't look at the pvc windows option then

    Decent size - if I had a garden and space then I would deffo go for it

    Do you need to keep 1m from the boundary of the building walls are of combustible material and bigger than 15m2 in footprint?
  16. JonoSaunders's avatar
    Can't be put within a metre of the boundary fence
