  • 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 known as a RASP cylinder. The reason we use this, is that it is a safer, more secure locking system as it prevents 'lock bumping' and 'cylinder snapping'. 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.

Average Seller Rating:

The Main Cabin very satisfactory, good quality. Unfortunately it is let down by the quality of the doors & window, relatively flimsey compared to the main cabin. The double glazed windows naturaly have some associated weight and this puts a strain on the hanging of the doors. Security of the doors and windows is not good with hinges on the outside as anyone with a cordless screwdriver would be inside in a few minutes! It has been necessary to put a cup headed bolt through to the inside with lock nuts,2 on each hinge to give some security as this was purchased for use as a hobby cabin and has items of some value in it. surely quality Butt Hinges would be a better choice despite not being so aesthetically pleasing.

Dear John. Thank you for your review. We have a PremiumPlus range of Log Cabins that includes extra and premium features for the windows and doors, including a industry leading multipoint locking system instead of gate hinges.

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.

Well, I was some what concerned at the thought of building the log cabin myself, this was due to the quoted erection price being over a £1000.00 and this took us over budget. BUT fear not, it was easy, providing you have a flat base (we did have) The assembly instructions are a bit back to front in places and I would recommend that you read these carefully or maybe DUNSTER HOUSE could realign these a lot better. Any way the quality and engineering behind the log cabin was phenomenal, we took 2 days to complete the base wood work with out the need to saw or cut anything !!! Well done on that score DUNSTER HOUSE. The floor had to be cut to final sides but again only on the last floor planks. We asked for the shingle roof and that took a day but worth while having. The double glazed window units fitted again straight in and the roof spider and bolt system has to be one of the best features of the DUNSTER HOUSE log cabins, other manufacturers have a crude screw through affair that is difficult to erect from what I have seen and heard again a good piece of engineering. All in all we are over the moon with the cabin and the service we received from DUNSTER HOUSE. Keep it up Guys Peter Davey October 2016

Dear Peter. Thank you for your review. We are really glad that you're happy with your Log Cabin. Our installation service always depends on the customer's post code and address. We will take all of your feedback into consideration.

how brilliant is my beautiful cabin! wonderfully insulated and wax coated with Briwax on the inside, I have nothing but praise for this dunster house product. The wood was all good, the website helped me make the right choices, and apart from the hopeless delivery gps it was delivered by helpful communicative guys ahead of schedule and is now a good value for money extra room in our garden.It was straightforward to put together and the roofing materials, door and windows all good quality.

First of all we would like to thank you for our beautiful bar/lodge we have transformed our lodge into a bar for us and our family and friends to enjoy. We have had so many compliments on the style of our bar and it's much cheaper than going out to our local bars.

A superb cabin. Bought as an artists studio and it fits the bill perfectly, a great size, very light and warm, even in the north east of Scotland, with all the insullation options fitted. The kits was very easy to put together with just two people and ordering and delivery was a doddle. I'd be happy to recommend a Dunster House cabin to anyone.
By - Alastair Struthers on Oct 25,16

The Summerhouse is great, very good quality, very solid and will last a very long time. The assembly of the unit is generally very intuitive with the walls, roof and floor going up in one day. One point which I feel could be improved are the instructions. As stated the build is generally simple however the instructions cover multiple versions and do not necessarily flow easily, plus there are one or two spare planks which are not obvious which caused some scratching of heads. In the scheme of things a relatively minor issue very quickly forgotten once the finished article is complete. In summary very pleased and would certainly recommend Dunster House to others.

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

Having searched the internet for some time we decided that the Dunster House range offered the best option for our purpose. Having recently given up smoking I saved money towards a cabin to have as an art studio/hobby room. Delivery was excellent and the tracker on line was a great help in making sure we were at home when the driver arrived. I have built the cabin myself, the majority of the build was over a weekend and then we decorated the following weekend. Finished now apart from waiting to have some electric sockets and lighting fitted. Overall we are extremely happy with our cabin and the service we have received from Dunster House.

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.

After a delay in the delivery date a new date was set and came along with a 3 man crew to unload, this was undertaken with speed and efficiently and placed correctly. The instructions are clear please spend time reading these along with a cup of tea. I also got a up rated floor , the cabin was easy to erect even though i had to modify mine to suit my footprint of the garden. Looks great just putting finishing touches electrics and lighting. Good value for the money and the staff are very knowledgeable.

Very pleased with the log cabin. Delivery was excellent and the driver most helpful. After reading the instructions and watching the video on building the cabin, I found, as one previous reviewer had observed, there are a few anomalies, but nothing you couldn't overcome. How some people find the written instructions confusing, is beyond me. I found them very easy to follow, depending on which version of the cabin you've purchased. I had to do the build myself, but would recommend as is suggested that it is safer and easier with two competent people. The quality of my timber was very good, but appreciate as is stated in the literature that you must expect a few small defects and an occasional warping of log, most of which is not insurmountable. It took me 2 days to build independently, but could have easily done it quicker with assistance. I took the option of preserving and finish coating it myself, this takes a good while to complete so if you're less inclined to do this, pay up and have it pressure treated. Overall I am extremely pleased with the product, remember it is timber, don't expect perfection. For the size of the cabin you'd have to pay 3 to 4 times the cost of a traditional brick built structure I suspect, admittedly you won't add value to your property, but if looked after it should last for many years of pleasurable use ........

We are very pleased with our Cabin, it looks great and went together well. We do have three points to remember when buying a cabin ;- 1. The cabins are NOT pressure treated unless you ring up and request this, it is not an option on the website, so you do NOT have 10 year guarantee unless you have this done. We found this out after the cabin was delivered and part built :-( 2. The Instruction Manual is for many types of cabin so can be confusing. 3. We had a few parts missing, but we did not notice at delivery, so check each and every item when it's delivered, Or you will going to Wickes to buy the missing bits like us. The cabin looks great and seems to hold the heat well.
By - Graham Sims on Oct 12,16 Dunster House reply:
Dear Graham. Thank you for your review. We do have pressure treated cabins displayed on our website. It's not an option that you'll need to select but it is an entirely different Log Cabin although with the same specifications apart from the treatment. We're sorry that you had some parts missing from your order but you could have emailed our customer service and we would have been happy to help and correct the mistake.

I am very pleased with the Premium Rhine Log cabin that I purchased from you,the delivery went very well and the two delivery persons were excellent and gave me some very useful advice.The build which i carried out on my own went well,a couple of head scratching moments but soon worked out what I had to do.The only complaint I have is the window and door furniture is poor quality,along with some of the screws,which I replaced with a better quality. Overall including painting the exterior twice, the build took me about a week not bad I thought for someone in their seventies.Last but not least a big thank you to the sales staff at Scunthorpe for all your professional help to make everything go smoothly.Thank You.

Dear John. Thank you for your review. We're glad that you are happy with your Log Cabin. Our PremiumPlus range of Log Cabins has better and safer locking systems than our Premium range. The PremiumPlus range features our industry leading four point locking system for doors and the windows have multipoint locking as well.

We wanted to create an extra room for the adults and kids, I found Dunster house to be extremely helpful with lots of communication from start to finish, even the delivery men were extremely helpful and went through everything with me, the log cabin was actually a lot easier to build than expected and with two of us was ready for the roof on the first day, we are extremely happy with a new accessory to our garden .... thank you Dunster house.

Many thanks. Andrew Salter.

Very impressed with the Premium Plus Severn log cabin. Excellent joint designs, easy to construct, a very good robust end product. Our construction is still ongoing and features a traditional joist floor, mounted on six concrete plinths. The roof is being insulated externally and topped with metal roofing sheets.
By - D Wells on Oct 11,16

Lantera sunlight 4.5 x 3.5 Delivery was made on time use of the tracking app really useful! The cabin went up really quickly we were at roof height end of day 1 and the roof was on by day 2. It took about 2 weeks total to finish completely. Couldn't be more pleased. It's a fantastic space now looking forward to decorating And moving my office in.
By - Jackie Tyrrell on Oct 11,16

The PREMIUMPLUS LANTERA SUNLIGHT LOG CABIN W4.5M X D3.5M has been a pleasure to build and adds a fantastic new dimension to the garden as an extra room and space for us to enjoy all year round. The quality of the Spruce is high with few knots. The build was easy enough, the logs fitted together with minimal encouragement with a mallet. The difficult parts of the build were due to a lack of clarity with the information on the instructions, the instructions were a general set covering all log cabins. There would have been more benefit to have more specific pictures and less text for each specific model of cabin.
By - Neil Gibson on Oct 11,16

Great purchase it was very straight forward to put together. Love it.And it did just take one day for the main assembly
