Construction Main Points
Pressure treated bearers provide durability to the base. The Log Cabin must be constructed on a firm level base such as solid sheet concrete, concrete slabs or tanalized bearers.
The installation team should arrive the day after your Log Cabin has been delivered. It may be required for you to store your log cabin for 24/48 hours before installation. Our team has over 30 years of experience. The base must be prepared before the installation team arrives. It normally takes 1-2 days to install the log cabin. The team will arrive at 7am to make the most of their time.

How will my goods be delivered?
Those located in offshore or remote mainland areas are those most likely to require a Delivery date extension and/or extra charges, if you feel you may be located in such an area, please contact our customer service team first for specialised advice.
Delivery is usually very easy and straightforward. We state 25 Working days delivery schedule on each product page. We can often deliver to specified dates, but cannot guarantee this. Customers will always be contacted at least 24 hours before delivery and be given the date and approximate time of delivery. If you need more notice than this - please let us know at the point of ordering. Delivery is Free of Charge to UK mainland addresses provided the following points can be met.
1. Delivery is normally made by a 6 Wheeler Truck with a "Piggy-Back" forklift on board to unload the cabin, however, certain hauliers used in the delivery of Log Cabins do not have this facility (If in doubt - please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your requirements).
2. There must be sufficient space for this vehicle to operate. (If in doubt - please contact us soon as possible to discuss your requirements). If the Cabin cannot be off-loaded due to a lack of space - a delivery charge may apply.
3. Delivery is Kerb Side: Our drivers are very helpful and will always try to leave the cabin as conveniently positioned as possible however because the Forklifts are very heavy - we leave it entirely at the drivers discretion whether or not it is suitable to drive onto your property.
4. Customer (or customer’s representative) must be available to receive the cabin and assist with off-loading if so required.
5. It is Important that you should insert at least one, but ideally two telephone numbers in the telephone number box when ordering. Our Transport Dept. will always contact you at least one day prior to delivery. They will give as accurate a delivery schedule as possible. The Cabin will not simply arrive unless you have been contacted first!
6. The Log Cabin packaging is a temporary packaging just for transportation to the customer. Although an outside product it is the customer’s responsibility to either treat the wood or keep it dry during the construction process. It is the customer’s responsibility to cover any exposed timber immediately after delivery to avoid blue stain issues.
If you feel that delivery on a smaller vehicle would be more appropriate - please don't hesitate to contact us. We can always arrange this and frequently at no additional cost. However, as the smaller vehicles are not able to carry a forklift - the driver would require assistance with unloading the cabin.
We are here to help and aim to deliver within the recommended delivery time for each product. However sometimes this will not always be possible and any delivery or dispatch date given is only approximate and as the seller will not be liable to the Buyer for failure to deliver on any particular date or dates. Time for delivery is not of the essence and shall not be made so by the service or any notice.
PLEASE NOTE YOUR CARD IS DEBITED AT CHECKOUT. This is to protect you the customer as we do not store your credit card details. We will contact you if a surcharge is applicable and at that point you can chose to accept the charge or cancel the order and we will make a full refund to your card. For our full terms please refer to our Shipping Terms
If you are concerned about delivery or any other aspect of the Cabin, please contact us as soon as possible so we can come up with a plan of action to make sure things all run smoothly for your delivery.

Assembly Installation Guide
Pressure Treated Wood Base Frame
Custom made frame to fit exactly the building, allows for any undulations or slope.
This is a quick and cost effective solution without much disruption to your garden.
For grounds that are very uneven and require digging out to get a level base.
Also where buildings need to be raised due to flooding or soggy ground.
Dense Building Blocks
An easy quick solution for uneven grounds or where the building needs to be raised.
Dense building blocks should be laid out in strip formation running in the same direction as the buildings base bearers.
Paving / Patio Slabs
General paving / patio slabs laid level with sand and cement if necessary.
Can be laid in strip formation with a DPC or membrane.
Concrete Pad / Slab
Ideal for bigger buildings and when the ground is fairly level and not liable to flooding or sitting water. Agree the placement before starting works making sure the roof overhang, guttering etc, everything is allowed for.. Essential to have level flat and square, raised just above ground level to allow for drainage. Best to have the concrete as close to the exact size of building so there is no splash back from the rain. If there is paving or a walk way if possible try and have a stone shingle channel following the outline of your building, this will help with drainage and keep splashback to a minimum.
Concrete base depths and sizes will be dependant on ground conditions...
In general dig out to 100mm. Use shuttering to take the level to 110mm, 10mm above ground level.
Then replace with 60mm of compacted type 1 as a sub base layer then put a DPM sheet over the top.
Add 50mm of poured concrete.
For large bases it is worth including reinforced mesh sheets to help avoid cracks and keep the structural integrity.
ALWAYS use DPM damp proof membrane and or DPC damp proof course rolls to separate the base layers from the building. This will ensure minimal moisture ingress up through the walls and floor.
25/30mm screws or nails to fix the roof boards to the roof joists.
approximate about 200 pieces.
The tongue and groove roof boards should be tapped into place, do not force together, there should be some room for expansion.
Treat the roof boards especially the cut ends liberally with wood preserver.
Base fixing can only be determined on the sub structure. Ideal would be 'Fischer fixers' for concrete or block.
Galvanised clout head nails. The roof tiles have self adhesive strip on the back but nails must be used as well.
If screws for wood are required to force into place (normally if base is not perfectly level) Good Quality Wood screws 120mm long. Drill down 50% through first log and take up 50% second log.
Floor and Decking
The floor inside should go in last. When laid the last piece will need to be cut. Leave a space around the entire floor for expansion.
Small screws or pins for the finishing pieces around the floor edging will be needed.
1. Base Wood
Place the treated (green or brown) base bearers (basement) evenly spaced. These can be secured to the ground, if a concrete pad use Fischer anchor through the wood into the concrete.
If the cabin is on wet or soft ground or there will be excess rain then we recommend using a membrane. Cut plastic strips or use a membrane roll and place along the top and bottom of the base bearers, this will help ensure no water transfer through the base bearers to the main body of the building. Do not place a big plastic sheet under the building this will stop drainage and keep the base bearers in sitting water; use a good quality breathable membrane that allows the water to drain through.
2. Wall Logs
Place first level of wall logs (x4), these are normally 2 half height wall logs and 2 full height sized wall logs. The first row of wall logs will sit directly onto the base bearers. On Some models there will be a first row wall log with a cut out for the door.
Screw the first level of wall logs into the base bearers, it is very important to check it is totally square and level. (If not square and level you will have problems later in the build)
Add the wall boards until you are at around 5ft and then add the window frames and door frames.
Only add screws to wall logs when necessary, if wall logs need manipulation to fit and sit properly then you can add a screw through the grooved section. Drill down 50% of the wall log and catch 50% of the wall log underneath. Only do this if the wall logs are twisted or bent, the weight of the building when completed will settle and move the wall logs into place.
3. Windows and Doors
Windows and doors should not be screwed directly into the wall logs.
The window frames and the door frames; frames should be screwed together if in part form before fitting.
Expanding foam is the best way to fit a window or a door frame, add the foam around the frames to create a good seal. Let the windows and doors settle into place after a few weeks, only then add screws into each corner of the frame. This method may require adjustment seasonally.
Use a good quality silicone sealant and apply liberally around windows and doors inside and outside. Make sure the sealant is well applied and sealed into every edge and join to ensure a good seal.
Roof purlins, trusses roof sections will sometimes need manipulation to sit in place, try and avoid any cutting. Roof boards should be nailed into the roof purlins. Roof boards should be screwed or serrated nails into the purlins (roof beams), fix roof boards into every purlin to ensure a good fix; we recommend a minimum of 3 fixes per roof board (top, middle, bottom). The roof boards tongue and groove should not be forced tight, just light hand pushed together to allow for some expansion and contraction.
5. Roof Tiles
For best results add a roof membrane before the roof tiles. Roof tiles follow the tile diagram exactly as shown, making the first row the opposite way round and laying the next row directly on top the correct way around. Allow the first row to overhang by just over half an inch.
Use a quality gutter sealant or flexible silicone to bead along the apex roof edge.
6. Baulk Clamps
On the plan the baulk clamps (storm braces) go into the corners.
Position these towards the top of the building almost to the top of the wall edge. The small hole put towards the top and screw through with a large screw or add a washer and screw tight into the wall board. The slotted hole (positioned towards the floor) you can put a large nut and bolt with washers or a large screw with washer and do not make very tight, just loose. This will allow the cabin to move but limits the total amount of movement.
The floor, screw or nail into place. Leave a small even gap all around the edges for expansion. The small skirting trim you can put around the floor to cover the gap.
8. Wood Treatment
Treat inside and out with good quality wood treatment, do not leave for more than 7 days untreated. Inside can be treated in a natural clear coat, paint windows and doors a few times to ensure a good seal.
Apply liberally wood treatment to all the exposed roof boards, especially the cut ends. Check and retreat the roof boards yearly.
We recommend an automatic humidity fan to be placed on the wall towards the top of the apex. They are approximately €/£60.00 to buy.
A good quality silicone should be added around the windows and doors inside and out. Silicone should be used in the corners of the wall log joints inside and out, we also recommend using silicone along the top of the wall where it meets the roof on the inside.
Add half sized guttering around the building. Ensure drainage is away from the building.
Decking place with a small gap to allow for expansion. (A coin space can work)
Delivery driver was extremely helpful. The pixie playhouse is beautiful BUT absolute nightmare to build.
Outstanding quality for the price. Everything MM perfect fit, flawless. ;-)
Excellent product. The experienced shed builder found the instructions somewhat lacking, particularly in relation to the roof. However it looks good and is waterproof. After sales service was both good and not so good. Sid was good. As was the presales representative Natalie.
I visited the premises to see the sheds and quality of the product before making a decision. The company were able to make a pent shed to the specific size I wanted. Adam was very helpful and knowledgeable about the sheds they sell. My bespoke shed was delivered and erected - thanks Jamie and helper - 9 days later. Great service and product. I can recommend them.
Outstanding quality for the price. Everything MM perfect fit, flawless. ;-)
