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.
I've have worked from home for coming up to a year and having a desk in my bedroom became too much. We have a small garden so I knew my options for a suitable workspace would be limited, but Dunster had the perfect solution. The delivery timeframe was as promised and my uncle and mum were able to put it up in around 5 days. I thought it might make the garden look even smaller, but now it's up it's like it's always been there. I can't wait to decorate it and settle in. No more working and sleeping in the same room!
Really good quality product and the construction was easy. No need for a carpenter, just someone whos handy and owns a decent impact driver! One point of possible improvement would be to physically number each item/ bag of screws to correspond with the instructions - I had this recently for some flatpack furniture and it made construction astronomically easy. Also be warned: lots of caulk and silicone needed!!!
Excellent product. Unloaded carefully by two helpful delivery men that took the trouble to stack componants more or less in order of construction (ie floor joists on top), right next to the build site. This made starting the build much easier and quicker. Nothing missing or and all timber was in good condition. Very pleased with my Titania Garden office
Excellent service from both the sales person Who took my order and the customer service department who arranged my delivery. Delivery was on time and well handled. Would not hesitate to recommend Dunster House to anyone
Excellent customer service from Dunster House, they answered all my questions and arranging delivery was simple and easy. It took my Dad and a friend (both technically minded and handy with a screwdriver) a full day to construct (6 hours or so) They did have one snag, the frame has been stored outside as it was bought in the sale prior to Christmas and one of the pieces of wood had expanded slightly from getting wet on the floor. Dunster has advised it would be OK as the wood has been treated and they did say when I ordered that a piece of tarpaulin would be provided and wasn’t. However I think that was more our storage issue than a fault of Dunster’s. We had a very happy little boy on Xmas day and it’s been used as a great base for Nerf battles. The best recommendation from my Dad would be to ensure that you have an electric screwdriver as theirs needed recharging a few times over the course of the afternoon.
During the process of buying a shed I changed my mind in the size after I had placed the order, Dunster were very accommodating and happily changed my order and processed the small refund very promptly. The shed was delivered as arranged and now it’s been built, is of extremely good quality. I’m very pleased with it both in appearance and functionality. Well done Dunster.
Very helpful pre-sales advice, good communication between order and delivery with delivery being made earlier than first estimated. Have yet to assemble the product, but pleased with the service so far.
This is the first time I’ve done one of these reviews for anything, so trust me, it’s a result of how impressed I’ve been with this product! The kit went together really well - no issues at all. They suggested it was a two day job for two, but I managed to get it up in one day by myself and just a little help from my wife stopping the window blowing over while I built up the walls. It really is pretty easy. Every single fitting / screw / piece of timber was complete and as stated in the instructions, and it all slotted in to place perfectly. The final product looks great and I’m very pleased indeed. I did quite a lot of research before and considered various different options, so I’m really pleased to have made the right choice. Thanks go to Craig in your Liverpool depot too, who did a good job in the sales process; very straightforward, honest, not too pushy and gave me some good advice on putting it together. Good man.
Really good well made product. We well not sure about this when we bought it having not seen it. However the quality of the materials used and build quality is very good. It took a little under a day to build for one person with a little bit of help from a couple of others to hold it in place. I would defiantly recommend this.
I was very pleased with the product and customer service has been fantastic, they made every effort to suit delivery date with me. I am very happy with the quality and will highly recommend this company. Thank you for a great service.
Good product at a keen price. Efficiently dealt with and delivered on time in horrible weather. The delivery guys went above and beyond working in those conditions to be on time for their next deliver!
I have bought this for my Grandchildren for Xmas, so it has not been built up yet. Previously bought a playset for them which is brilliant. Good quality product, well made, and durable. Can't wait to see what the gypsy caravan looks like when we get it built.
We have two on our camp site Mill Park Touring Site in north devon and hope to buy another three this year, they are great my customers love them and come back year after year Each one as paid for its self in one year,10 out of 10
Thank duster house
I ordered this item to use on an equestrian yard. I couldn't be happier with the service, was kept fully updated and delivery was prompt. On delivery day I tracked the vehicle which meant I wasn't wondering when it would arrive, and the two men who delivered couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
Very happy with the service from Dunster House. They delivered when they said they would and the driver even waited for me to arrive hope. Their delivery tracking service is very handy. The product supplied is good quality and was exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely deal with them again in the future
Very good from start to finish. Easy ordering process, very good customer service to answer any questions. The delivery date was earlier thank initially advised and the product as good as I expected. I will use you again. David
Only just had the fences put up and I'm really pleased with. So much so that I will be ordering two more to completely surround the front patio. The service was goof and so were the men who delivered the fences.
I couldn’t be more in love with my Dunster House log cabin which was purchased almost 12 months ago. My husband worked solidly all weekend to erect the cabin and thoroughly enjoyed the build. Delivery was great and no problems. We opted for the shingle roofing which I would highly recommend, they look so nice too. We had a concrete base laid which I would also recommend over other foundation options. I have been running my makeup artistry business from home since June 2019 and what a success it has been! It was always a dream to have my own studio and I am so thrilled with the quality and finish of the cabin. It was a long process getting it all water-tight and painted exactly as I wanted but it was worth the effort. Highly recommend this company!
Beautifully engineered. Second I've built in 10 years, Only because I have moved house. This time a Warmalog. Straightforward to build, but important to take time and read the instructions. Great value for money.
I’ve built several log cabins from various manufacturers, but my Dunster House Warmalog cabin is outstanding. All the parts are machined precisely making construction straightforward and without issue. The finished cabin looks and feels high quality. Based on my purchase, I can’t recommend Dunster House products highly enough!
