Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Slow Grown Spruce Log Cabin Workshop
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Slow Grown Spruce Log Cabin Workshop II
 
Slow Grown Spruce
 
We use slow-grown spruce for the walls, roof, and floor of our log cabin workshop as it is better all-round than pine! Spruce is less porous than Pine and so less likely to shrink, warp or split. We only select slowly grown timber from colder climates which also helps keep the timber more stable as the rings are densely packed. It is also a less resinous timber than Pine, which makes the possibility of sap ruining your clothes or furnishings much less likely. More info on the advantages of Spruce.
 
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Pressure Treated Bearers Log Cabin Workshop
 
Pressure treated Floor bearers
 
By pressure treating our floor bearers we protect the lowest part of the building from rot and insect infestation. This forces the treatment deep into the timber using a large pressure treatment tank. 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 with no need for the customer to re-treat this timber at any point during that time.
 
Sheds &  Storage Log Sheds Avoid Planning Permission Log Cabin Workshop
 
Avoid Planning Permission
 
This 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. 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
 
Petrus shed high internal eaves
 
High Internal Eaves
 
The Petrus workshop features a high internal eaves height which is typically higher than other comparable products on the market, reaching 6 foot 7 inches, and the roof boards are higher still. There's plenty of room inside for you to walk around the shed without bumping your head as well as plenty of space for tall storage.
 
Petrus no glued together off cuts
Petrus with finger joints
 
No Glued Together Offcuts
 

We are proud of the way we build and design our sheds. So, we only use full lengths of timber in our heavy-duty sheds. This means we don’t glue separate offcut pieces together with finger joints. Not only are they stronger, but they look much nicer too.

 

Other companies are happy to provide you with rough offcuts, mixed or finger jointed timber, creating an odd-looking weak shed with an off-putting appearance.

 
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Interlocking Logs Log Cabin Workshop
 
28mm Interlocking logs
 
This Log Cabin Style Workshop uses 28mm rectangular logs, rather than whole round logs you might find in the Yukon, but they interlock in just the same fashion to create an inherently sturdy and durable structure! If you are looking for a garden building that is strong and long-lasting, look no further!   
 
19mm Shed floor

19mm T&G Floor Included As Standard
 
The Petrus workshop comes 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 or OSB boards found in the market. The tongue & groove floor-boards are fitted by slotting each board into each other, fixing the boards to the bearers as you go, creating a sturdy surface with an attractive appearance
 
19mm shed roof
 
19mm T&G Roof Included As Standard
 
We supply the Petrus log cabin workshop with a 19mm tongue & groove roof boards as standard. We make the 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. The tongue & groove roof boards are fitted in the same way as the floor, where each board is slotted into the next, creating a strong surface and attractive ceiling.
 
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds 4 Point Locking System Log Cabin Workshop
 
4 Point locking system 
 
Our doors feature our four-point locking system, that comes with a hook, locking latch and two roller locks. We use a 6-pin lock, which has been tested to BSEN 1303:2005 classification to ensure it is a safer, more secure locking system. 
 
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Air Vents Log Cabin Workshop
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Air Vents Log Cabin Workshop II
 
Air Vents
 
This shed comes with ventilation as standard. We implemented this to help prevent condensation build up within the building. We use two pairs of plastic base plates, one round and one square. The round external vents have chamfers to help direct water down away from the hole, the square inner vents have an integral fly screen to prevent insects from entering through the vent. The pair of vents allows a flow of air through your shed to help keep out musty smells.
 
Sheds & Storage Log Sheds Easy Access - Low Step Log Cabin Workshop

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!)

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, or have us do it for you, 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

  • Splits

  • 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 Ts&Cs here). 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 cs@dunsterhouse.co.uk.
