Our PremiumPlus has a specification better than any competitor. This cabin has a secure 4-point locking system, Larger Purlins for extra roof strength, Wide Opening French Doors, and large windows with unique Dunster House Domestic Hinges and Multi-Point Locking. Unlike competitors, our thick Tongue&Groove floors and Pressure Treated Bearers are included in the price. All this on top of the Premium Features of Spruce timber, Toughened Glass and High Eaves.
4-POINT LOCKING SYSTEM
Our exceptional doors feature an 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 windows have multipoint locking as well, using the same type of system as we supply with our uPVC windows and doors.
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.
OPTIONAL 24MM DOUBLE GLAZING
Our 28mm Log Cabins come with single-glazed windows, made of 4mm toughened glass, which can be upgraded to double glazing:
Our industry-leading 24mm-thick, sealed-unit double glazing is supplied as standard on 45mm cabins, 130mm cabins, and 145mm cabins.
We make these sealed units at our own factory, 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.
10 YEAR PRESSURE TREATED 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.
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.
PRESSURE TREATED FLOOR 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.
TALL WALKTHROUGH HEIGHT
With our extra tall doors, unless you are over 1.88m (6'17") tall you can walk right the way through without any danger of bumping your head.
AVOID PLANNING PERMISSION
This building is under 2.5m high. Why does this matter? 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 need to be placed over 2m away from any boundary (eg. a fence line), which could lead to a lot of wasted space. If you want to find out more about permitted development rights see our planning guide
ADJUSTABLE FRICTION STAYS
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.
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.
AVOID SAGGING ROOFS
Our heavy duty 140mm or 210mm high by 45mm wide supporting roof beams prevent unsightly sagging.
QUALITY WINDOWS AND DOORS
With gasket seals for weatherproofing, laminated timber in the longer sections for increased resistance to warping, larger sections of timber and better joints. Along with our best hinges, locking systems and largest opening sizes, we've developed these using our decades of experience in the window and door industry and they are unmatched by our competitors.
A Log Cabin is a garden building constructed using individual lengths of timber (logs), which interlock to form a solid structure. Log Cabins can have numerous uses, such as a garden retreat or garden office, an extra family room, a games room, a music room, a gym … the list is endless.
Our Log Cabins are made from slow-grown spruce
, and feature pressure treated bearers, 4mm toughened glass and domestic locking systems.

This image shows a brief reference to how your products will arrive. All of our garden buildings are made
from kiln dried quality graded timber; if it is to be stored prior to construction and treatment all parts must be
covered to prevent moisture from warping the timber.
To ensure the very best quality, we only use slow-grown White Spruce Timber, which is harvested in cold climates to ensure solid, dense log rings. This gives the wood superior strength and longevity, and also a much more consistent colour than the likes of Pine.
Despite the care we take in selecting the very best Timber available, it’s not like predictable brick or cold steel, this natural material has characteristics and quirks unique to every log.
Because our timber logs once fed water and nutrients back and forth from its roots to its leaves, its very nature is to be porous and swell up when it gets wet. Any wooden product will do this throughout its life, but there are a few things you can do to help limit this movement.
1. A great design!
- Don’t worry, we’ve got this one covered. We’re experts when it comes to all things timber, so we have designed our products from the ground up with its natural properties in mind.
2. Water Repellent Treatment.
- How you customise and decorate your product is up to you, however we would recommend that you use an appropriate water repellent treatment. This really helps minimise the amount of moisture that the timber can absorb. Therefore minimising the risk of any major movement.
- (Please note: water repellent treatment is not the same as pressure treatment, which protects against rot and insect infestation, and which we guarantee for 10 Years!)
- Keeping your timber building ventilated is no less important than keeping your house well ventilated. This is especially true if you plan to cover up your floorboards with something (double check with an expert, that the material is suitable to do so), as moisture can become trapped between layers of non-breathable materials and build-up, leading to floors becoming rotten.
4. Regular Seasonal Maintenance.
- Whether you opt to build your product yourself, or have us do it for you, don’t be afraid to tighten the odd bolt here and there. Your product is a life improving investment, so it’s only right to give it some love and care from time to time. Make sure that it’s properly treated before the rainy months, and you make adjustments to doors and window frames, when needed.
Natural Timber Properties
After building your timber product, this natural construction will begin to ‘settle’. This means that you will likely see some natural timber imperfections appear. These types of natural imperfections can include:
- Expansion and Contraction
Please be aware that, as these are natural timber properties they are not considered as defects under our Terms & Conditions (for more information, check out our Ts&Cs here). However, in most cases, these imperfections will not impact the integrity or function of your timber product, and/or can easily be rectified. For advice on how to rectify these and for more support, please take a look at our Timber Properties Help Page, or get in touch with our Customer Services Team on email@example.com.
