  • 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.

Love the log cabin - the installation team were excellent and it is great value for money
By - Gillian Melling on Oct 25,16

Very satisfied with the quality of the product and with the help of a friend we managed to erect the walls, roof and flooring within 5 1/2 hours. The tarpaulin we put on the next day. We took our time over the final touches of staining etc. My wife is delighted with the finished product and friends and family have been very complimentary about its looks. ( I have now got loads of brownie points from my wife !!). I also wish to thank the delivery men who were most helpful especially with their advice on the method of instruction.

Well what a wonderful find and price. Gave myself a new challenge and project to do. It's finally up and running Paul in the SPA Lounge

Great product, staff were very helpful. Delivery was on time and the delivery driver was very helpful and give some helpful hints on sorting the load ready for build. The kit was very easy to build and with the help of a friend it only took a day to have it built and water tight, and the second day to finish. Great quality and I am very happy with the finish cabin

Superb quality building. Everything manufactured to perfect tolerance and an absolute doddle to build. It took us 2 days from delivery to being painted with two coats and ready to use. My only gripe is the quality of the bolts used to hold the doors closed. Mine fell apart as I fitted them!!! I am however very very impressed with the quality of the building and overall experience.

Dear Steve. Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you are pleased with your log cabin. Regarding the doors we do offer a better and stronger locking mechanism with 4 locking points on our PremiumPlus range.

Delvery team very friendly and helpful - full marks to them. Delivery tracking is a good system. Instructions good - but too many diferent bits of paper that had to refer to - making it difficult to find the right piece. Instrcutions did not flow logically. For the base there were two separate sheets with differnt instructions on. Easy to install once I had found the right piece of paper! Screws etc were delivered in various bags - so not always easy to know whether had found the rights ones. Might be helpful for bags to labelled. A couple of minor problems with the door handles and lock - i have emailed you separately on this. Overall very impressed and pleased with the shed. Thanks very much.

Brilliant - it took a bit longer to erect as we are only armatures but once we sorted the base out it was plain sailing - careful how you put the storm braces on at the end if they aren't correct it does affect how the expansion and movement of the wood happens. I found this out and then corrected the braces perfect now. All set up with carpet power points computer two seater setee - peace!
By - Ian Delamont on Jul 12,15

Delivered on time. Build went smoothly at the end of May 2015. Worth taking the time to get a level base sorted out for the Rapidgrid system and follow the build instructions closely. It looks great and feels sturdy. However, the doors do seem a bit flimsy so will reserve judgement until after its first Scottish west coast winter. A great addition to the garden and very pleased to date.

Thank you for your review. We do have a better offer in terms of windows and doors on the PremiumPlus range.

Delighted with quality and all dealings with Dunster House. Having a carport helped with the very helpful driver and my husband - a keen DIYer, sorting the many lengths of wood and parts as they were unloaded - which helped immensely. He gave many useful tips for building. Having read and re-read the instructions the Cabin was up within a day and completed in two days. We chose the black shaped roofing shingles and he took a long time getting it right, using a heavy duty stapler instead of tacks which saved a lot of time and it looks lovely. It is now woodstained in muted clay and country cream and really looks superb. Our 3 year old Grandson soon had his workbench and sleeping bag in - looks like we have lost our lovely garden retreat already!

Our summer house arrived promptly as promised. Instructions were easy to follow and assembly was trouble free. We are already enjoying our summer house. Thank you Dunster
