  • 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.

I am busy putting in the foundations but everything looks good quality will know better when I have erected the log cabin
By - Martin Pigford on Aug 18,16

Overall very happy with my new Summer house. Looks great, spacious, solid. A couple of minor niggles. The wall thickness is consistently 43 mm not 45 mm; the doors and locks are slightly flimsy - time will tell how these hold up. But overall very satisfied for the price.
By - Mark Gugan on Jul 08,15 Dunster House reply:
Hi Mark.Thank you for your review. We are glad that you are overall happy with the Summerhouse. Timber is a natural product that expands and contracts over time. Each side is also planed so there is always a 1mm tolerance when planing each side. Our apologies if these factors combined resulted in your logs being 43mm when you measured. Other customers may measure theirs and find them to be up to 46mm. This natural variation will not affect the structure of the building (overall, 2mm is nothing). It is certainly not intentional as the feedstock of timber is the same size regardless so shaving an extra 1mm off saves us no money.Also regarding the door lock we do offer a better locking mechanism with 4 locking points on the PremiumPlus range.

I had reservations about buying this cabin because it was so much cheaper than the competition. I needn't have worried, my log cabin (man cave) is fantastic. I had some help putting it up but most of it was done by myself. Where I did have help it was only a matter of saving time rather than any difficulty in building it on my own. The chap who delivered my order took the time to give me some excellent guidance, without which the build would, no doubt, have been more problematic. If looking for a log cabin I can highly recommend the Premium Severn from Dunster House.

Thank you for your review. We do offer a better locking mechanism with 4 locking points on the PremiumPlus range.

Excellent product for the money. We had ours errected by our own builders on a pre-prepared concrete base and as such have not suffered from the issues other people have commented on. We upgraded the walls to the thicker 45mm aswell as upgrading the floor and roof, so it is very solid. We also bought the side shed add on, which is fine although extremely short - so lots of banged heads! The only thing that stops it from being 5 stars, is that the doors and windows are very flimsy (which is suprising bearing in mind the quality of the rest of the unit.) But if you can live with that, then this is a highly recommended product.

Dear Zoe, thank you for your review. We hope you will come back soon and post again once all finished.

Have a premium 7 , 5 x 4 m cabin. Absolutely love it. Went together well from first enquiry to delivery a very good service and product. Highly recommended. Bought it as a present for my son to have as a gym and it works very well indeed. Select 28mm flooring to be hard wearing and this is essential in my view All around 5 stars
By - Martin Ellis on Nov 17,14 Dunster House reply:
Glad to hear you are so pleased. 28mm floor is perfect considering the heavy use a gym floor will take.

Very pleased with quality and customer service, recommended 100% easy 5 star thank you. Ian Webster.
