Size Code: Estimate size in feet, for example 1008+4 = approximately 10ft x 8ft plus a 4ft verandah.

Size FW x D x H: Front Width x Depth (front to back) x Height (top of the apex) in m (metres). Depth includes the verandah 1.2m. Non-standard sizes are obtainable.

Internal Size: The internal size refers to the main part of the log cabin only (doesn’t include the verandah). A nominal 0.3m has also been taken off the log size on the front width and depth to give an estimated internal size. This is to allow for the 100mm log overhang in each corner and the 33mm log thickness.

Windows: Amount of hardwood window openings. Extra windows can be added if requested.

Door W x H: Width x Height of door in mm (millimetres). Please note the door gap is moderately smaller than the door itself.

Floor Plan: Select by size from the above table. These show the diameter of the floor along with the joins and the direction of the floor joists. Please note, that the direction of the floor joists can change so this must be checked before an order is placed, if critical.

Assembly Guides: Select by size from the above table. Please note, that due to the amount of sizes, models and variations that we offer, the assembling guide may not be 100% specific to your log cabin, but it should provide you with all the necessary principles.

Eaves Height: Internal height at the stunted point of the roof (sides).

Lock: This log cabin comes as a standard with two keys and a mortice lock.

Roof cover: Supplied with high quality polyester-based felt roofing.

Log Movement: Due to the construction of our log cabins, over time the logs will start to settle down and move when changing weather conditions, due to the natural expansion and contraction of the timber. Especially in the first year after assembling. If any of the logs which are being held in place, have gaps appear between the logs as the opposite ones move, then the obstruction should be removed as soon as possible and the logs should normally close back up when a downward pressure is then applied to the roof of the cabin. For this reason, we do not recommend insulating log cabins. The expansion and contraction of the timber that causes this issue can be limited with the right amount of timber treatment.


Building Sizes
All sizes are an estimate and are based on the external measurements (unless stated contrarily) – they also do not encompass roof overhang. Please allow for any overhangs when choosing the size of your timber building, whilst also bearing in mind, the recommended space for installations and upkeep of your timber building. We advise you also check internal sizes when buying a timber building for a specific purpose, or any other sizes if critical. Planning permission may also be needed on some buildings depending on size and location, please check with your local council if unsure.
