Additional Information

To ensure the very best quality, we only use slow-grown White Spruce Timber, which is harvested in cold climates to ensure solid, dense log rings. This gives the wood superior strength and longevity, and also a much more consistent colour than the likes of Pine.

Despite the care we take in selecting the very best Timber available, it’s not like predictable brick or cold steel, this natural material has characteristics and quirks unique to every log.

Because our timber logs once fed water and nutrients back and forth from its roots to its leaves, its very nature is to be porous and swell up when it gets wet. Any wooden product will do this throughout its life, but there are a few things you can do to help limit this movement.

These include:

1. A great design!

  • Don’t worry, we’ve got this one covered. We’re experts when it comes to all things timber, so we have designed our products from the ground up with its natural properties in mind.

2. Water Repellent Treatment.

  • How you customise and decorate your product is up to you, however we would recommend that you use an appropriate water repellent treatment. This really helps minimise the amount of moisture that the timber can absorb. Therefore minimising the risk of any major movement.
  • (Please note: water repellent treatment is not the same as pressure treatment, which protects against rot and insect infestation, and which we guarantee for 10 Years!)
  • On pressure-treated timbers, you may notice some subtle striation marks. These marks sometimes appear during the drying process of timbers. Fear not! In time, the marks will begin to fade as the sun starts to lighten the wood.

Timber with Striation marks

3. Ventilation.

  • Keeping your timber building ventilated is no less important than keeping your house well ventilated. This is especially true if you plan to cover up your floorboards with something (double check with an expert, that the material is suitable to do so), as moisture can become trapped between layers of non-breathable materials and build-up, leading to floors becoming rotten.

4. Regular Seasonal Maintenance.

  • Whether you opt to build your product yourself, don’t be afraid to tighten the odd bolt here and there. Your product is a life improving investment, so it’s only right to give it some love and care from time to time. Make sure that it’s properly treated before the rainy months, and you make adjustments to doors and window frames, when needed.

Natural Timber Properties

After building your timber product, this natural construction will begin to ‘settle’. This means that you will likely see some natural timber imperfections appear. These types of natural imperfections can include:

Cracks

Cracked climbing frame timbers

Splits

Split Timbers

Shakes

Timber Shakes

Warping / Twisting

Expansion and Contraction

Please be aware that, as these are natural timber properties they are not considered as defects under our Terms & Conditions (for more information, check out our Terms and Conditions. However, in most cases, these imperfections will not impact the integrity or function of your timber product, and/or can easily be rectified. For advice on how to rectify these and for more support, please get in touch with our Customer Services Team on [email protected].

It is the small details that matter…

When choosing a cabin, it is important to think about security. In addition to our industry-leading multi-point locking systems, we also ensure that our window and door hinges are concealed.

Unlike some competitors, you cannot simply use a screwdriver to remove a window or door. We ensure that screws are concealed.

Why? Because your security matters!

All our garden buildings have been designed on the basis that any competent DIY customer should have no problem installing a product themselves in a short amount of time. You do not have to be an expert at DIY to build a Dunster House garden building, as we do provide you with comprehensive pictorial instructions. We totally understand that DIY is not for everyone therefore, you may want to consider getting in touch with a local carpenter or handyman to install it for you. But before you do, check out our construction video and decide for yourself!



Purlins are the large timbers used for structural support in buildings. We use very thick, heavy duty roof purlins to support your garden building.  At 140mm x 45mm they are amongst the thickest purlins available on the UK market. Competitors will often use thinner purlins to keep their costs down which means their roofs will not be as strong as ours. Using thinner purlins risks the roof collapsing or sagging during extreme weather – and that’s the last thing anyone wants!

Heavy Duty Roof Purlins

Unlike our competitors, we only use high-quality spruce timber on our wooden products rather than cheap pine or mixed timber. Why do we use slow grown spruce rather than the much cheaper knotty pine alternatives?

Spruce is considered more stable as it expands and contracts less than pine. This stability means that the spruce timbers in our garden buildings minimise splits from appearing as the timber changes along with the weather.  We responsibly source all our timber, where it grows slowly in the cold northern regions. We all know the old adage of counting the rings to see how old a tree is, well our timber grows slower and takes longer to get to size meaning it has more rings in it. This means it has a tighter grain, and each ring helps prevent cracks and shakes from appearing in the densely packed timber.

Our wooden garden buildings and climbing frames really are built to last therefore we use only the highest quality, slow-grown spruce.  Spruce is much more resilient to warps and splits compared to its cheaper alternative pine. Being a whitewood, it doesn’t discolour anywhere near as much as pine so it is also much more aesthetically pleasing for a garden structure. Considered more stable, less knotty and resinous than pine, spruce will also produce a lot less sap. It is also less dense meaning it is not as susceptible to mould and rot.

There is nothing more annoying than being in the middle of building something and finding that you don’t have the right fixings to continue. We include all of the screws, nails and fixings that you will need to put your garden building together – not many of our competitors are that thoughtful. This eliminates the need to worry about the type of screws or the length of nails you might need to get started – it’ll all be with your delivery.

Fixings Included

Our 34mm and 45mm log cabins come with 24mm double glazing included at no extra cost. Our 24mm double glazed sealed unit comprises of two, 4mm single glazed panes of toughened glass on either side of an aluminium spacer bar, designed to absorb any excess moisture within the sealed unit.

All our sealed units conform to BS EN 1279 standards. This standard covers the requirements for insulating glass units, including thermal and sound insulation. The sealed units are tested to show that they will not suffer from any form of condensation within the unit.

Quite simply we do not believe in compromising on quality!

Be wary of cheaper log cabins provided by some competitors offering less effective 14mm double glazing which provides less sound and thermal insulation.

OURS:

24mm Double Glazing Included as Standard

THEIRS:

Competitor Less Effective 14mm Glazing

The design of the cabin incorporates a handy storage space – a separate room accessed through its own solid wooden door with a 4-point locking system. This full-height area makes a great playhouse, a workshop for small projects, or an ideal space to keep bicycles, garden tools and other large items out of the weather.

This extra storage space is interchangeable, so it can be added to either the left or right side of your cabin.

log cabin sidestore

We only use full lengths of engineered precision cut and routed tongue and groove timber in our log cabins. These logs go through a process of being planed, leaving you with a smooth finish. We believe that using full lengths of planed timber gives you a more aesthetically pleasing and stronger product.

Other companies are happy to provide you with rough offcuts, glued and finger jointed together, creating a weakened cabin and off-putting appearance.

45mm log cabins

This garden building is under 2.5m high. Why does this matter? Under permitted development rights, buildings under 2.5m high can be placed as close as you want to a boundary (eg. a fence line) without planning permission. Garden buildings that are over 2.5m high need to be placed over 2m away from any boundary (eg. a fence line), which could lead to a lot of wasted space. If you want to find out more about permitted development rights see our planning guide

Our cabin logs are designed to interlock with a chamfered finish to ensure a snug fit. The chamfered notch system is designed to prevent damp or wind penetration. Our interlocking logs make for speedy installation and minimal need for tools. Our garden buildings have been designed on the basis that any competent DIY customer will have no problem installing a product themselves in a short amount of time.

Unlike some competitors, we provide interlocking precision-engineered chamfered logs. Keeping your log cabin watertight and free from unsightly draft-producing gaps.

Add a flyscreen to the windows of your garden building, so you can benefit from letting the fresh air in while keeping those pesky insects out, without restricting visibility. An insect screen will allow you to still view out of the window to survey your surroundings, watch nature and look out at the beauty of your garden.

flyroom screens for porches

As the effects of global warming take place, the Earth is changing, with reports suggesting an expected increase in the number of insects around the world. An increase in temperatures over the coming years will speed up the growth rate of some insects. This includes the domestic housefly, which could see a rapid rise in its population. Order your flyscreens now to protect you for the future.

Keeps out insects

It’s always nice to be able to throw open the windows of your garden room to enjoy a warm summer breeze or cooling air. With the addition of a flyscreen mesh, you can enjoy the warm weather without worrying about unwanted insects getting in. Keep those flying insects from buzzing around as you try to work in your garden office or relax in your summer house.

Ventilation and comfort

Ventilation and circulation of fresh air is also important for the wellbeing of you and your garden building and helps to maintain a relaxed and comfortable environment inside. Flyscreens for windows give effective protection so you don’t have the annoyance of flies and other creepy crawlies.

Durable materials

The fly mesh is made of strong and water-resistant materials to last. Easy to fit

It is provided as a simple ready to install screen to fit the size of your garden room or log cabin window and fixes to the window frame. Easy to follow instructions will be provided alongside your order.

Easy to use

The roller flyscreen is easy to operate, with a handle to pull it down when the window is open, and a small clip will keep the screen in place. When not in use, the retractable flyscreen design allows it to be discreetly hidden away.

You’ve probably at some point left the window open and it’s suddenly started to rain. Usually, this would be an issue for log cabins with normal window hinges as they could rust. However, there’s no need to panic as our expertly joined windows come with our 5-star stainless steel friction stays, typically found on the uPVC windows in your home. This eliminates the needs for the typically found stay arm openers, commonly used on log cabins.

solid windows for log cabins

Your security is of the utmost importance to us.  You have invested your precious time, thought, and money into creating your perfect garden building, therefore we want to ensure your valuables are as safe as they would be inside your own home.

Our doors feature an industry-leading domestic standard 4-point locking system consisting of espagnolettes, which slide in opposite directions as well as a 6-pin Euro cylinder, which has been tested to BSEN 1303:2005 classification. Making it difficult for intruders to break in and steal your precious belongings.

Most companies will use a cheap and simple 2-point locking system. For us it’s a no-brainer – why would you compromise your security when we offer the best on the market!

Our windows use espagnolettes, which pull the window tightly into the draft seals attached to the frame. We also supply a solid handle and key that allows you to lock the window whilst you’re away. Most competitors only supply a multi-purpose stay arm opener for both locking and keeping the window open.

Unlike other log cabins on the market ours are supplied as standard, tie the log cabin together and are adjustable. Our adjustable storm braces allow for natural movement of the cabin, which helps prevent gaps appearing between wall logs as the logs settle and move.

Garden Log Cabin With Storm braces included

All of our log cabins are supplied with 19mm tongue & groove roof boards as standard. We make our roof from single pieces of slow-grown spruce as this is the perfect material for the job, especially when comparing to alternatives found on the market. Our tongue & groove roof boards are fitted in the same way where each board is slotted into the next, creating a strong surface and attractive ceiling.

 

Our roof insulation is supplied as panels of 25mm thick polyisocyanurate sheets which are supplied already chemically bonded to MR-P5. These sheets are very easy to fit to the roof of your cabin, they simply need to be screwed down through the sheet into the roof board below. This giving you a very quick, easy and cost-effective way of lowering the U-value of your roof from 3.49 W/m2 K (for just 19mm roof boards) to a far more efficient 0.76 W/m2 K (19mm roof boards and insulation).

19mm Roof For Log Cabins

Our floors come as standard, but that doesn’t mean we compromise on quality. You may by now have noticed that not all log cabin companies are the same. Beware log cabins with untreated floor bearers, which offer no protection against floor level damp penetration. We could make excuses that you may wish to use the patio as a base, as in some European countries, but we are in the UK and our customers expect to get the floor included, after all its an integral part of the building. This doesn’t mean either that we use low-grade timber bearers, because as the saying goes, out of sight out of mind!

 

All of our log cabins are supplied with pressure treated floor bearers and 19mm slow-grown spruce tongue & groove floorboards as standard. It is the perfect material for the job, especially when comparing to cheaper pine and OSB board found in the market. Our floorboards create a strong surface with an attractive appearance.

 

Subject to how you’re going to use your log cabin, and whether it’s for all-year-round use, you should consider adding floor insulation. Heat loss through cold rising up accounts for a lot of discomfort. Our 25mm thick polyisocyanurate insulation can be fitted between the bearers of the cabin prior to putting in the floorboards. This will lower the U-Value of your floor from 2.81 W/m2 K to just 0.77 W/m2 K, saving you money on heating and helping to keep your feet warm in those cold evenings!

19mm Floor log cabins floor included

Our garden buildings feature key-lockable outward opening windows, so you don’t lose internal space, allowing you to accommodate furniture underneath the window. Our windows have been designed to include draft seals that prevent wind and rain from entering your garden retreat. You may think it’s over the top, we think it’s just standard.

Wide opening Log Cabin Windows

When constructing your log cabin, you do not need to worry about putting our windows or doors together as they come preassembled. So, you simply need to slot them in after all, we take pride in our DIY-friendly designed products. Many competitor products require you to painstakingly construct the windows, doors and other hardware, such as handles and window trims, and install the glass.

Did you know? You can also add a little character to your windows with some stylish Georgian bars, which we supply as standard, however this is entirely optional and up to you. Not all products offer Georgian bars, so be sure to check the product specification.

Ventilation is essential for the longevity of the Garden Building. This is to ensure airflow and minimise moisture at all times. We have provided ample vents to ensure that condensation is never a problem. Some competitors charge you extra for these or do not even offer them.

Vents Included with cabins

Both our doors and windows are fitted with internal beading used to secure the glazing in place. This beading style is typically found in uPVC windows and is a proven method of security. However, there are still some companies that externally bead their windows. Allowing intruders to remove the glazing from the outside of your garden house and gain access.

internally beaded windows

We use 4mm thick toughened glass, not Perspex or Styrene which can scratch easily and cloud up over time. This is also thicker and less likely to break when hit with the neighbour’s pesky football compared to the industry standard of 3mm horticultural glass.

All of our garden buildings have pressure-treated floor bearers as standard. This treatment prevents the timber bearers from rotting for up to 10 years and causing your garden building to sink. Pressure treatment forces the wood preservative into the timber rather than simply dip treating (essentially just covering the exterior) like many companies still do. Who wants to have to annually deconstruct and re-treat the bearers each year!

Due to this costly but effective process, we can offer our customers a genuine 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on the bearers.  We do however recommend applying a good quality water repellent to the timber to prolong the longevity of the timber. Shockingly many of our competitors still offer untreated bearers to keep their costs down, so beware!

All our Pressure Treated timber is for Use Class 3

The bearers of your garden building are pressure treated to help protect your garden building from the ground up. We provide a 10 year guarantee against rot and insect infestation for all pressure treated timbers.

A Log Cabin is a garden building constructed using individual lengths of timber (logs), which interlock to form a solid structure. Log Cabins can have numerous uses, such as a garden retreat or garden office, an extra family room, a games room, a music room, a gym… the list is endless.

Our Log Cabins are made from slow-grown spruce, and feature pressure treated bearers, 4mm toughened glass and domestic locking systems.

No, we do not have any showrooms or display sites. All business is completed online and via our website. If you do have any queries that haven’t been answered with the information provided online, please feel free to call our sales team on 01234 272445.

This Log Cabin’s measurements are:

It is 2.38m (7' 9") high

 

There are several options available when looking at how to keep your log cabin warm. Firstly, if you are only planning to use your log cabin occasionally, we would just recommend putting in a small electric heater in the cabin. Usually you would turn that on 20 minutes before you are going to use it to kill of the chill.

However, if you are planning to use your log cabin all year round for either business purposes or a play area etc, we offer different wall thicknesses on our cabins. 28mm, 34mm, 45mm and 62mm (insulated) are the options available – further details on insulation is below.

We have designed a unique concept – the Warmalog (insulated) cabin range, which is our insulated range of cabins. The cabin walls, roof and floor have all been insulated with polyisocyanurate to help you keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The wall thickness is equivalent to having a standard cabin with walls 140mm thick.

Discover our Warmalog Collection (insulated log cabins)

Alternatively, all our garden offices are fully insulated too, which is a great other option for our customers. Again, we use polyisocyanurate throughout the whole building, not Rockwool or foil backed bubble wrap like some competitors are using. The heat retention properties in our offices also help you spend less on your energy bills, by allowing you to not have the heating on for long.

Discover our Garden Office Range

We recommend a flat, level base at least 100mm bigger on each side. e.g. A W4.0m by D3.0m garden building would have a base of 4.2m by 3.2m See more details here.

U-values tell us about the heat loss properties of the material you are measuring. The lower the number, the better insulated the Garden Building will be. Find out more here.

Often, an additional cost is buried within the price when offering finance, thus making your purchase higher priced. This is the reason we do not offer finance and feel that it would not be beneficial for our customers or us. However, we have come up with an alternative method for you where you can use a 0% interest-free credit card to pay off your purchase. For more information, see this article: Do we offer finance?

Yes. Any additional windows and doors that you choose to purchase as an extra with your garden building will require you to cut an aperture in order to fit it in.

 

The window can be fitted on either the left or right hand side of the Log Cabin.

Due to the unique design of a Dunster House product, in the vast majority of cases our garden buildings can be installed without the need for planning permission.

However, there are a few other factors to consider:

As all properties are different in size, shape and style we can only advise based on how we have designed our products, not on your property.

When to consider planning permission:

  • If the garden building exceeds over 2.5m tall – the majority of Dunster House buildings do not exceed this.
  • If you intend on putting an outbuilding in front of the main elevation of your property (as it was originally built or as it was on 1st July 1948) will require Planning Permission.
  • If you live in a listed or graded building
  • If you live in a designated area such as areas of outstanding natural beauty, national parks, world heritage sites and conservation areas.
  • If there is a possibility that over 50% of your garden would be taken up by outbuildings.

Avon SideStore Log Cabin Ratings

W Wootton

Dunsterhouse was amazingly helpful when I first phoned them and continued to keep up with help and advice. I bought a log cabin plus extra storage. I am so impressed with the Quality and now it is up I am so happy with my purchase!! Everything is just as described. The help with choosing what I wanted was great and all extras were explained in detail and I was not pressured to buy anything which in these times was so appreciated. Dunsterhouse give yours a clap, you deserve it!!! My only disappointment was you do not erect the Cabins…… It`s not easy to find good builders.

Hi What can I say. After a lot of deliberation and visiting a few other cabin suppliers, I settled for a Dunster cabin. I must say for what you got for your money the deference was quite noticeable. I am a joiner of more years than I care to remember and have a eye for detail. I selected a 4.5 x 3 metre cabin with side store. The ordering! I done on the phone. as I like to listen to people i deal with and I have to say the sale guy was knowledgeable and not pushy, as I would just hang up. I did select the paint `but cancelled it` as I could get it cheaper locally and as I noticed on one of the other cabins the paint was cheaper even though it had a larger paintable area. I also got the rubber roofing online kite size, to fit the cabin. I was expecting a long wait, as most other companies were only taken orders for next year with this surge in demand with Chrono. On the website it said 3 to 4 weeks. I two weeks I got a call if they could deliver the main shed. I said yes please it arrived 7.30 am on the day agreed and the guys were excellent taking it of manually and putting it to the back of my driveway were I was able to go through it and stack it as per erecting. I erected the shed and within a week I got a call for the delivery of the side shed and again repeat delivery as the the first. Their was on damaged board that the guys pointed out, they logged it as damaged but I did said I could repair it, but they did give me the option to get a replacement. The whole experience was excellent, and the quality of the doors and windows with proper fitting. The timber finish is excellent with no large Knots. The only thing I would say and its the reason I did not give Dunster a full star rating was the top log above the window has warped badly and their is a gap I can see outside. When I put this piece on at the time, it was warped then. I have no redress. `As with the paperwork`, it says that you cant return any logs and they give a list of characteristics and that its a natural product, warping and twisting is not covered. With this being a week from delivery I think there pushing it. I would except the disclaimer after a reasonable time scale.

Delivery Service

All of our products are delivered using our own fleet of vehicles, not sub-contractors. We have a large number of vehicles dedicated to delivering our quality products so we can guarantee maximum care is taken during the delivery process.

Our deliveries take place Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

When the delivery vehicle is unloaded, it is important that you check to make sure all of the items and instructions have arrived and are correct. You will also receive a component list to check your items against. If anything is missing or damaged, it is essential that you note this on your paper work when you hand it back to the delivery driver.

Prices for our delivery services can be found on individual products.

Please note that goods will be delivered to the first point of contact at the front of your property e.g. on your driveway. This must be within 20m from the delivery vehicle (Safely Parked at Kerbside). Our team will be responsible for assessing the risk of carrying out delivery upon arrival at the property.

Should you require further information on our assisted delivery services, please click here to read our Terms and Conditions, alternatively you can contact a member of our Sales Team.

Q: Where can I find more information?

A: If you have any questions regarding your delivery, you can telephone our Dispatch Team. Contact details for the Dispatch Team of your nearest branch can be found on your order confirmation. If you need to track your delivery or access your manuals in advance of your delivery, you can visit the Customer Log-In Area of our website /customer-login-area

Thank you for taking the time to read about our terms and advice during this period. We hope you can enjoy your Dunster House garden product for many years to come.
