I am very pleased with my purchase . I am pleased with the quality of the garage and very pleased with the two men who erected the garage . I am certain I could not have erected it myself . My only comment on how matters could be improved is as follows . Be aware that this is not a complaint . It would be better if one could pay a little extra to have the wood pr treated, i.e. before erection . I have painted it but the vast majority of thr structure is inaccessible to paint which will leave it prone to early rotting . I refer specifically to the beam which is in direct contact with the concrete base . Happy with my purchase . Patrick Dawson
Thank you for your review, Charles. Do not worry, the pressure treated bearer, the beam that is in direct contact with your base, is pressure treated and guaranteed for 10 years against rot and insect infestation.
I have nothing but praise for the garage or the erection team. The quality of the garage is far superior to anything I expected . The two assemblers were great and spent two days putting it up .All I had to do was keep out of the way and supply coffee.
My advice to any purchaser is to not even think of either erecting the garage yourself or getting your local handyman on the case . Secondly I would advise that you had someone there to protect it with paint or stain immediately so that the building does not hang around in an unprotected state . Patrick Dawson . Saddleworth .
The double garage kit is remarkable value for money and the finished result looks amazing. It was a busy couple of days getting it put up but I managed with a little help from a mate. The basic structure including the roof and roof membrane took about a day and a half to complete then some quiet time on my own with the finishing off - the doors, glazing, roof shingles etc. There were times when I thought I might be short of a few pieces but I was wrong; everything was there as detailed in the parts list. My advice would be to spend several hours reading and re-reading the instructions. It's worth noting that the instructions are not 100% specific to the Deore double garage (being based on a standard cabin) so you need to combine 2 sets of instructions which was a bit challenging! I'm thoroughly delighted to have bought from Dunster House.
Thank you Mr. Browning, we are glad you enjoyed building your log garage! Thank you for pointing out the fire rating required for building regulations for larger buildings. We offer Fire Retardant paint as an optional extra to help customers meeting this regulation where required.
Generally very helpful, particularly in supplying a missing part.
