  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Avoid sagging roofs
    Our heavy duty 140mm or 210mm high by 45mm wide supporting roof beams prevent unsightly sagging.

    4 Point Door locking system
     
    Our PremiumPlus doors feature our industry leading four point locking system. It features a hook, locking latch and two roller locks. We use a type of lock that has 6 pins and has been tested to BSEN 1303:2005 classification to ensure it is a safer, more secure locking system. Our Premiumplus windows have multipoint locking as well, using the same type of system as we supply with our uPVC windows and doors.
  • Optional 24mm Double Glazing
    The double glazing option on PremiumPlus Log Cabins is an industry leading 24mm thick. We make these sealed units ourselves to European Standard EN1279. Made up of 4mm toughened glass, 16mm 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.
  • Adjustable Hinges/Friction Stays
    Our PremiumPlus doors feature easily adjustable hinges allowing you to make minor changes if ever required. The windows on this range have the same friction stays as we supply on our uPVC windows, meaning that you can open the window and leave it open with just the hinges taking the load, with no need for a stay arm. These sets of hinges are stylish and supremely user friendly.

Just have to say thank you Dunster for a fantastic cabin, I built it completely on my own from preparing a base to Windows, doors roof and floor. I carried every item through my house and into the rear garden as I have no side access. The 1.5 tonnes of 10mm shingle for my gridlock plastic base was a challenge but between days and days of rain I manage to build my dream cabin, your after sales advise was second to none, and everyone who visits are amazed at the finished Avon cabin. Friends are enquiring for details because they want one! I read some bad reviews and panicked when I found out you don't answer phone calls! But my email was answered immediately on a Monday morning and pointed out that the sunlight version long window I had trouble fitting was remedied easily by reading the off instructions you sent me, I already had these in paper form but hadn't read the last page so it was my fault and from that point on I was able to erect the cabin Great product, great customer service and outstanding value for money

Really pleased with our log cabin, went together brilliantly making a great room to enjoy our fabulous views from garden
By - Gary Tibbitts on Mar 17,16

Some good things: - Customer services very helpful! Not sure why some others have complained about them. I asked questions and got polite answers. - You get what it says on the website. Everything is of the quality would expect and hope for you for such a product. - Unlike some big DIY stores, the paint is high quality trade paint, the wood is clean and mostly free from splits and knots, the nails and screws are good quality and the fittings and shingles excellent. - There are plenty of screws and nails plus they supply spare planks of wood such as logs, roof and floor. - Everything goes together as described with some care required to make sure you are using the right bits in the right place. - Windows are better quality than my previous cabin and double glazing is thick and good quality. To note: - They don't take away the packaging materials and there is a lot of waste wood, plastic sheeting etc. used as packing. - The instructions are more a series of notes, not a step by step guide. The YouTube videos are essential to understand the instructions! - I built mine (almost, I am still going) on my own. Its not a technically hard job but it does involve some labour, DIY skills and time. - Some parts of the build look easy on the videos but climbing over the roof on slippery plastic sheeting is a bit dodgy for anyone over 35 years old! - The real pain is painting. There is lots of it and several coats are required. - Even if they put it up for you, you still have to paint it yourself. I am doing mine as I go rather than at the end to protect it as best I can from the rain whilst building it. My suggestion would be remember what you are buying and don't "spec it up" too high. Higher spec summerhouses can be bought elsewhere at 4 - 10 times the cost and are manufactured as large components in factories to control quality and minimise on build time. They are not supplied as many bits of wood for DIY construction. As a low cost, self-build, summerhouse Dunster House is very good value. Don't buy from any cheaper company to save a couple of pounds, you will get what you pay for!

We bought this having seen one owned by my brother, the product is truly quality and easy to work with. Erected in two days including shingles, painting applied in a day for one coat and a second the next morning. We have used it extensively already and are most pleased with the outcome. A very friendly and efficient service the delivery team had to fight through unexpected roadworks dig up on the day and were marvellous. The packaging is user friendly with the added bonus that I am using the longest sheet as a blanket when cutting long hedges, no mess so no added sweeping up! Other uses for the sheets will come to warm the soil over winter and allotment friends will use the rest, great reuse method. Thank you Dunster House, a most satisfied customer. ps one tip when building, I used 3 strings to align roof boards, one on the apex and one on each side of the cabin having fixed (temporarily) the facia boards front and rear. This allowed for butting up straight so no fuss.

Hi there, I recently received my Avon premium plus log cabin. I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that I am absolutely delighted with the product and the service(s) that I received from Dunster house. The cabin is of an exceptional quality and I am over the moon. Thank you so much and all the best for the future. John.

We purchased a premium plus Avon log cabin/ summerhouse 3m x 3m, back in March from your Flixborough Office through Carl. Just wanted to say how absolutely delighted we are with it. From the sale to delivery, everything was perfect. It arrived properly wrapped and not one thing was missing from it. We had our own fitter and it went together perfect. It has made a wonderful addition to our garden and we spend many happy hours in it as we had ceramic floor tiles fitted and electricity, therefore a tv and hi fi system and a two seater sofa and patio table and chairs, etc. The perfect setting for a glass of wine on an evening. Can't wait until Christmas as we have concealed rope lighting under the eaves and will have lights on the tress around it then. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dunster products to anyone wanting a quality product.

This was delivered on time and the delivery man was very polite and helpful. It took a lot more assembly than suggested - even for someone who is quite knowledgeable ! However, looks good now put up !
By - Sarah Drew on Nov 29,14 Dunster House reply:
Thank you for your review, Sarah. We often get comments about how helpful and knowledgeable our drivers are. We are glad your experience was the same.

this is my second log cabin from dunster house, as with the first one, if you take your time, the end result is very good, I am very pleased with both of them. please follow the links on the website for videos on construction,

First cabin so good that you've come back for more? Really pleased to hear this! We love it when customers recommend our products or even come back and buy again.

Dunster House Ordinarily I do not enter into feedback requests unless I am unhappy with the service / goods provided. However, in this instance I will make an exception as I believe that credit should be given where it is due In summary this is an excellent product which surpassed my own high expectations and is now fully functioning as my external 'office'. The customer service experience was excellent (I would strongly advise anyone to discuss their requirements with the team before placing an order as their input was exteremely helpful), the quality of the materials was faultless and the instructions provided made it simple to construct. My only criticsm (which is minor and intended to be constructive) is that the roof insulation panels could have arrived cut to size given that the dimesions are known - as cutting these manually is a little time consuming. I would have no hesitation in recommending this product to family and friends, many of who have been both surprised and envious of the end result. Many thanks!

Wow, Andrew. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, against your usual habits! We are so pleased you are so happy with the product. We always love to recieve photos if you want to share any with us.

Sorry for the delay in replying but I am enjoying this wonderful product. Quality is excellent and relatively easy to erect although on my own it did take longer than I thought it would, mainly because I treated every piece as I built the cabin and I did adapt the verandah as you will notice on the pictures. Instructions were good and everything was there slotting together dead easy. Thank you very much for the excellent service, quality and very competitive price all of which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone requiring a superb summer house/cabin. To be honest everyone that has seen it has been impressed. Thank you once again.
