First post and a new thread, hope you all don't mind.


Looking to buy a log cabin, 3m x 2.5m, want it to be decent construction, daughter wants to put a Jacuzzi thing in it, doing the paved base myself. Looked online and there seems to be a lot of untrustworthy suppliers / installers, budget around 2k - 3k for cabin with installation on top, don't want to get stung, just asking any recommendations really as haven't a clue.

    HI op,

    I'm doing the same thing at the moment. I am looking at a 4mx3m log cabin. Skinners seem to have a good range and also do 'made-to-measure.They have log cabins, she, workshops and summerhouses

    They seem to display at larger garden centres and I've heard they are quite good.

    They can price for set up and I'm looking at having a rubber covering on the roof so get a 20 year guarantee.

    Thye have quite a good website

    If this reply isn't too late have a look at the Forest Auvergne at buyshedsdirect. Your biggest problem is the movement in the logs the steam will cause. I would highly recommend using Timmersol Exterior Timber Stabiliser to help alleviate some of this movement. It's a very high quality waterproofing finish designed specifically for log cabins. I used it on mine and have had no problems with movement whatsoever.

    Not at all, but this is nothing to do with gardening. :)

    The 'In my Home' board is the best place for queries about the built aspects of the home.[/STRIKE]


    Dead thread resurrected. Hallelujah!
