We design our log cabins with the DIY market in mind for simple construction. So you can start enjoying your new log cabin sooner. Read on to find out more about the features of a Dunster House Log Cabin.

Log Cabin Construction

Our log cabins come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The majority of which are under 2.5m high, and therefore unlikely to require planning permission.

To make the walls of our log cabins, we use slow-grown Spruce, as it has less sap than Pine. To find out more about the timber we use please see our #timber products. The wall thickness for the cabins come in 28mm, 34mm, 45mm or 62mm (equivalent to 110mm). Find more information on wall thickness and which would be more appropriate for your planned use.

log cabin installation

Our log cabins feature adjustable storm braces. Timber is a naturally resourced product that is likely to expand or contract in adverse weather conditions, especially when it is very cold or extremely hot. The storm braces attached to the log cabin can be adjusted to ensure any gaps are closed. The option is there to loosen the bolts if you wish to, to allow the logs to settle. We allow you to position the storm braces either outside or inside the cabin. The decision is entirely up to you.

Log Cabin Windows and Doors

All of our log cabins feature industry leading tall doors! The walk-through height on our cabin doors is 6’ 2’’, so you are less likely to hit your head.

Our log cabins have the option of either single or 24mm double glazing. This double glazing features as standard on log cabins with 34mm and 45mm wall thickness. Single glazed windows feature 4mm toughened glass.

The 4mm toughened glass we use in our windows and doors offers the perfect protection. Unlike plastic or Perspex it doesn’t scratch or cloud up over time. Some of our log cabins come with beautifully sculpted Georgian bars as standard, just to add that touch of class to your cabin. But these are optional to fit and can be left off if you prefer the look without them.

We make life easy by delivering the windows pre-assembled, packed with the glass fitted, and the frames fitted together. Not only that, but we’re not going to make you have to go out and buy extra parts, or pay extra for vital components. We include air vents for your cabin as standard too, for ventilation inside the building.

Log Cabin Options

Small Log Cabins

Our log cabins not only come in different shapes and sizes, our range is so expansive that we offer practical solutions to make your life easier and more enjoyable. We give you the option to add a SideStore to your log cabin, to make your log cabin that extra bit special. The SideStore is an extra storage area that attaches to the side of your cabin, with its own separate access door. This space is ideal for storing your garden tools, outdoor toys and furniture. If you are after a specific size, style, or have an idea on how you would like to use it, at Dunster House we have a range of log cabins and garden rooms to suit anyone’s requirements.

pressure treated bearers

All of our log cabins feature floor bearers which are pressure treated to protect its foundations from damage by insects and fungal decay. Without pressure treated bearers, moisture would damage the lower aspects of the cabins. This is why it is vital that the bearers are treated to ensure longevity and protect the foundation on which the log cabin is based. Find out more information on maintaining log cabins.
