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 the natural movement of the cabin, which helps to prevent gaps appearing between wall logs as the logs settle and move.
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.
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.
Pressure Treated 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. It is costly but effective process that ensures years of protection 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.
Avoid Sagging Roofs
Our heavy duty 140mm or 210mm heigh by 45mm wide supporting roof beams prevent unsightly sagging.
4 Point Door Lock System
Our doors feature our four point locking system, that comes with 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.
Adjustable Hinges and Friction Stays
Our doors feature easily adjustable hinges allowing you to make minor changes if ever required. 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. These sets of hinges are stylish and supremely user-friendly.
Inset Porch
This 2m x 1m porch adds character and a "homey" feel to this garden building. It is perfect to decorate the entry area of the cabin with some flower pots.
