All of our log cabins are expertly designed and crafted with our customers in mind. Every single log cabin is constructed using the finest timber to ensure it lasts for years to come.
Our log cabins come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The majority of which are under 2.5m high and therefore are unlikely to require planning permission.
The walls of our log cabins are made using the whitewood, spruce, as it has less sap in it than pine. To find out more about the timber we use please see our timber products
. The wall thickness for the cabins come in 28mm, 45mm or 62mm (equivalent to 110mm). For more information on wall thicknesses and which would be more appropriate for your planned use click here.
To ensure no gaps form between logs, our cabins feature adjustable storm braces. Timber is a naturally resourced product that is likely to expand or contract in adverse weather conditions, especially when it is very cold or extremely hot. The storm braces attached to the log cabin can be tightened to ensure any gaps are closed, the option is there to loosen the bolts if you wish too. We allow you to position the storm braces either outside or inside the cabin, the decision is entirely up to you. However, we recommend that storm braces are placed outside if you purchase a Log Cabin with a 130mm wall thickness.
The windows and doors you receive for your cabin depend on which tier you purchase. If you purchase a Standard log cabin your windows are fixed, and the doors come with our industry leading Standard Locking System (Latch & Deadbolt). Our cabins come with a multipoint locking system on all windows, and an impressive 4 point multi-locking system on the doors. For more details on the windows and doors please see here.
All of our log cabins feature industry leading tall doors! The walk-through height on our cabin doors is 6’2’’so you are less likely to hit your head. Some of our competitor’s doors could be as low as 5’8’’, certainly not ideal if you are above that height.
Our log cabins have the option of either single or double glazed, with the double glazed featuring 24mm thick glass. All windows that are single glazed feature 4mm toughened glass as standard.
The 4mm toughened glass we use in our windows and doors as standard offers the perfect protection, unlike plastic or Perspex it doesn’t scratch or cloud up over time. Our log cabins come with beautifully sculpted Georgian bars as standard, just to add that touch of class to your cabin, but these are optional to fit and can be left off if you prefer the look without them.
Our log cabins not only come in different shapes and sizes, our range is so expansive that we offer practical solutions to make your life easier and more enjoyable. We give you the option to add a Sidestore or Veranda to your log cabin, both make your log cabin that extra bit special. Our Sidestore comes with an extra storage area on the side of your cabin, which is ideal for storing your garden tools, toys and furniture. Our Veranda comes with a traditional style porch and decking at the front of your cabin, providing you with extra space to relax outside. If you are after a specific size, style, or have an idea on how you would like to use it, at Dunster House we have a range of cabins to suit anyone’s requirements.
All of our log cabins feature floor bearers which are pressure treated to protect its foundations from damage by insects and fungal decay. Without pressure treated bearers moisture would damage the lower aspects of the cabins which is why it is vital that the bearers are treated to ensure longevity and protect the foundation on which the log cabin is based.
