I bought the Battle Claw log cabin. It was delivered to my home in Cornwall on time and instructions and part lists were clear. It took two days to prepare all the timbers. Because the winter days were short I guessed that the erection would need more than two people so I hired in R H Halliday Joiner & Carpentry Consultant in mid Cornwall for the day to supervise the build. It really paid off. The three of us working together got it to roof stage in six hours. The roofing and shingles + rainwater goods took two of us two further full winter working days. For success I would recommend good power tools, two step ladders a platform ladder and regular referral to the manual. Not for the complete novice but the end result is a quality garden building and very good value for money.
Excellent looking cabin, fits together like a jigsaw puzzle but fairly easy to follow the instruction manual with help of You Tube videos. 3.5m x 2.5m cabin took 1 day to build and another day for shingle roof / flooring / facias & trims.
Can not fault my log cabin and the service from Dunster House. Cabin was much cheaper than anywhere else. It was delivered within 2 weeks and I ordered a two person delivery which was amazing and all the pieces were stacked In order ready to build. We built it ourselves following the instructions and referring to the video once. Was straightforward and looks amazing.
We went to Dunster House in Bedford to have a look for a replacement to our ageing shed. We decided on a Rhine and sidestore, placed the order and were allocated a delivery date. It arrived on time and with very helpful delivery men who went above and beyond. Then came the fun bit, assembly was onto a concrete base and in 2 days we had it up and waterproof. Instructions are good and well worth reading well, assembly is logical but you have a substantial jigsaw to put together. Putting up over winter wasn’t ideal but we seemed to get a slight break from the rain. Roofing and painting added another couple of days but stopped me getting bored over Christmas. It’s now finished and looks great and has added a really useful space in the garden. Overall a great experience and would buy again if we need another garden building.
