Construction Points:

A good foundation is the key to guaranteeing the longevity and quality of your cabin. Only a completely level, rectangular foundation and bearers will ensure problem-free installation of the cabin.

The floor must be a minimum of 50mm off the ground, preferably more. The underside of the floorboards and the joists should be painted thoroughly and care taken to ensure enough airflow under the house. We recommend using Malthoid DPC between joists and the ground.

Your chosen site must be levelled and compacted to minimise ‘settling’. We recommend using strip or spot foundations, concrete foundations or pavers or a cast concrete bed.

If unsure consult with, or have the foundation prepared by a specialist.

Questions and answers

q: Can you tell me if the roof is included? As shown in the picture?
a: Yes you receive rolls of roofing felt with the kit - if you look at the 'Frequently Bought Together' section above there is an option to add a roofing shingle upgrade kit.

q: Hi there! Do you think installing onto a low deck rather than a concrete pad would be a good way to get the required aeration under the floor?
a: Yes, that would be a great option.

q: Morning do these cabins need a building consent? We are in the Wairarapa/ Carterton.
a: This one is under 10m2, so it should be fine depending on your intended use. We always recommend double checking with your local council.

Thanks for expediting the order from your end. Toll could have upped the game a little as we waited for a Hiab to lift it off the truck. The product [Iris cabin] is excellent and we will be using it as a dedicated writers cabin. Happy wife - happy life!

Great cabin easy to construct and amazing service from Tradetested. Real shame that the local delivery company (Toll) let down the whole experience They got no part of their job right 2 weeks to deliver 30 or so kms and still not ‘door to door’

These were easy to put together and look great. The trick that we would like to pass on is that you need to put the roofing material on on a warm day so that it is more playable as it cracks and tears easily if cold.

We recently put up the log cabin on our glamping site as a bathroom. Very impressed! We have kept the natural timber look - inside and out, loving it.

Over the past couple of weeks I have built the above Garden House. The positives: Easy to construct Well priced Pleasing design Excellent staff support both on line and by phone The negatives: The unacceptable delay between the date of dispatch and the final delivery. The consignment arrived in ChCh within 4-5 days of dispatch but the trucking firm held it in their yard for no apparent reason and it was not until I phoned them several days later that things starting to move again.The trucking firm apparently had no HIAB in their fleet and were sitting on their hand not knowing what to do next. Anyway I rang Trade Tested to say that things had stalled and a delivery took place a couple of days later. The next problem was that the HIAB truck dumped the load on my property when I was out, no phone call to arrange a delivery date and time (which should be common practice given the value of the consignment) and no delivery docket signature. I took be the best part of a day the carry the material to where it should have been unloaded. I do not accept that "this is not Trade Tested's responsibility" as it is. I accept that the logistics of moving such a large consignment is totally different to freighting a power saw for example but from the customer's point of view the principles are the same. I took a large risk buying such a product on line without seeing it and apart from the transportation shambles I would give a favorable recommendation to anyone buying a Palmako product via Trade Tested
