  • Avoid planning permission
    This building is under 2.5m high.
    Why does this matter? Well, 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, however, need to be placed over 2m away from any boundary (eg. a fence line), which means that with taller buildings you end up with a lot of space behind them. If you want to find out more about permitted development rights see our planning guide
  • Adjustable storm braces
    Our adjustable storm braces tie the log cabin roof to the rest of the building so it withstands stronger winds. Unlike other cabins on the market they are adjustable to allow for the natural movement of the cabin which helps prevent gaps appearing between wall logs as the logs settle and move.
  • Slow Grown Spruce
    We use slow grown spruce for the walls of all our log cabins 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.
  • 2 Point Door Lock system
    Our Standard and Premium doors feature a dual point system. There is a pre-fitted Deadbolt and Latch and a pre-fitted metal keep to receive them. The Deadbolt is operated by the key in the cylinder lock and the latch by the chunky and stylish modern handle.
  • 4mm toughened glass
    We use 4mm toughened glass in our windows and doors for increased safety and security. It's much better than 3mm horticultural glass, commonly found in garden buildings, as it's a lot harder to break, and if ever it is broken it breaks into small pieces rather than large shards. It is also much harder to scratch than the plastic alternatives, styrene, acrylic and perspex, so will preserve your clear view out for far longer.
    Pressure treated 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.
    10 year timber guarantee?
    Other companies claim that they offer a 10 year Guarantee on their untreated timber. If you read the small print, you'll find that these Guarantees are pointless. They cover the cabin against rot and insect infestation only if you, the customer, treat the cabin every year with a good quality preservative. Why are these Companies offering a Guarantee for something that you are going to have to do yourself? How could you prove you had treated it if you tried to make a claim? We don't offer pointless Guarantees. We guarantee that our pressure treated timber and our galvanised metal will last for 10 years without yearly labour from you. 
  • Customise your design
    Our Log Cabins have been designed to fit any garden and accommodate any personal preferences. Where our pictures show the doors on either the left or the right hand side of the front elevation if you want the doors on the other side of the front elevation simply reverse the position of the front wall logs when you build it. You can choose between a traditional or modern style, depending on the type of roof you prefer, and with or without Georgian Bars, to suit your taste.
  • Optional 14mm Double Glazing
    The double glazing option on Premium Log Cabins is 14mm thick. We make these sealed units ourselves to European Standard EN1279. Made up of 4mm toughened glass, 6mm spacer and another piece of 4mm toughened glass. It's an excellent way of insulating your cabin and extending its usage from a seasonal building to one that can be used throughout the year.
    3 Gate Hinges
    Gate style hinges create a more authentic and traditional finish to your cabin.
  • Plastic Vents
    We believe we are the only Log Cabin company to fit ventilation to their log cabins as part of the kit. We've done this to help prevent condensation build up within the building. We use two pairs of plastic base plates, one round and one square. The external round vents have chamfers to help direct water away from the hole, the inner square 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 log cabin to help keep out musty smells.
  • Tall Walkthrough Height
    With our extra tall doors, unless you are over 1.86m (6'1") tall you can walk right the way through without any danger of bumping your head.

Average Seller Rating:

The cabin itself I really love. It is solid and sturdy and the quality is very good. However the reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that the instructions need improvement. . A lot of important detail is missing. Steps appear not to be in order and the way some things are phrased are very misleading. We wasted a lot if time because things hadn't been explained and we had to dismantle parts of the cabin in order to rectify. I strongly recommend watching the YouTube video first, something sadly we only discovered st the end. My husband and I are very practical people yet because of the inadequate instructions we did struggle with certain things (like the fact the apexes need unscrewing before you fit them no the last logs and that the doors and windows need fitting once only three long gas are down, and we are still at a loss about the window trims- do we have too many pieces or not enough?? There are no instructions about this and no parts list so we just dont know). It had taken us two weekends ( in November , so short days ) to put up. I think we would have done it in half that time with clear and complete instructions.

Dear Nicola. Thank you for your review and your comments. We will take all of your suggestions into consideration and look into improving our instruction manual.

I fitted my Dunster House log cabin recently, and the quality of the product, together with the easy to understand instructions, has made me feel very pleased that I chose this quality product. The staff at Dunster have all been very helpful, and professional. Roland Marchant, Kent.

The Log Cabin fits my requirements as a workshop for my new silversmith hobby. It was put up by the construction team in around eight hours and seems very solid. I will be fitting it out soon with work benches and laying on electricity soon.

All round good quality log cabin, easy to build took 2 of us just the one day to get all the main structure built

I'm incredibly pleased with our Premium Carsare cabin, after receiving a discount at checkout, we were able to afford the double glazing and shingle roof. It took 2 days to build by myself and was surprisingly easy to do, just like the how to videos.

We recently purchased this premium carsare for our back garden, when it was delivered in what looked like a thousand pieces it looked like it was going to be a marathon building experience, now saying that, after sorting all the pieces into piles and started building it it was just like a big jigsaw puzzle and after about 5-6 hrs the shell was all built by myself and friend with no woodwork skills, it was finished in the following week and has since been painted and it looks absolutely fantastic, I will recommend this product and dunster house .

Thank you for your review and for sending us a beautiful photograph. Please keep an eye on our facebook page for your picture.

Very Pleased with cabin, although i thought because i went for the thicker floor, that roof would have also been thicker.##

I can highly recommend duster house, the whole process was seamless from ordering to delivery & finally erection. Driver offloaded the summer house flat packed using a forklift & placed it where we asked. It was well protected with plastic sheeting from the elements. We unpacked it a week later & sorted the contents into roof, floor, sides etc. It took two of us 7 hours in total to complete with only one minor error during the build. It is a quality product & I am well chuffed with it, there were more than enough spare nails, screws & wood to complete the build. I would have no issues purchasing from duster house again.
By - Robert Conry on Sep 01,14 Dunster House reply:
Thank you Robert, we are glad you are so pleased with your order. We must however point out for over customers that the vast majority of our vehicles are NOT equipped with a forklift and so we ask for someone to be present to offload with the aid of the driver. Robert was just a lucky one!
