This cabin has a floor area under 30m², this means it is exempt from the consent process when added to your property as a structure for ancillary use. Please see our 'consent information' button below for more information.

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.

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:
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.

Painting studio

Not finished outside painting yet due to inclement weather and needs another coat on the untanalised wood. Hence the small decking and step haven’t been built. Had floor prepared by a separate builder as has to be very accurate and he insulated this for warmth. Not sealing the floor inside but covered it with hardwearing carpet. It is a lot bigger than you think and would be brilliant as a sleepout. The whole delivery and assembly was very efficient. I bought extra slates for the roof to make sure it would be waterproof and it certainly is but I think this is due to the experts who assembled it.

Log Cabin

This was easy to put up, took me 8 hrs on my own. I followed a previous review and built a platform with ply to sit it on which made it easier. Agree with previous reviews, lay everything out and look at the plans and instructions to see what is what before you start. I had some extra boards left over from back wall x 2 and roof x 1. Built a porch too which finishes it off nicely, photo shows only partially built. Will also put a steel roof on as suggested by others as the felt supplied will not last but I knew that before I bought it. We have fitted a Winnerwell stove which heats it up and we cook on it so all set up for glamping while our house gets built!

Excellent product

Ordering and delivery of the log cabin was very straight forward and all components were as advertised. The build was not difficult but you do need building experience - the instructions certainly make this assumption. Given NZ weather conditions I added a colour steel roof (with 40 mm high density insulation under it) and a veranda on the front - plus guttering- see photos. The cabin was built on a base of 16 ground retreated piles, four main bearers and a 12mm ply floor was laid over the supplied floor bearers to make the building process much safer and easier. The supplied flooring was then laid over the ply - glued and invisible nailed. The interior was finished with Resend water based polyurethane on the walls/ceiling and solvent based on the floor. Currently the exterior is finished with two coats of Resene Timberlock. Given the cabins balitic pine is untreated I will eventually have to paint the exterior but in the meantime we all enjoy the soft glow of the timber. To prevent water penetrating the ends of the wall planks I capped them with a colour steel 30x30mm channel. Solar powered lighting and a fan completed the interior. The finished cabin is now my wife's cherished art studio.

Great little garden room!

This was a fun little project, took about 3 weeks to complete, in between everything else. Very cool and easy, would recommend using the tiles for the roofing overtop the felt.

Leaky cabin

Bought this cabin as a project for the garden. Since completion I have have no end of problems with leaks. Every time I think I've got it sorted, I'll discover one elsewhere. I have fully painted the outside, filling all gaps, knots imperfections etc. to a high standard, however the rain still gets in. Endless amounts on silicone has been used to try and sort it without any luck. I have even ripped the floor out and replaced with ply in the attempt to locate and stop leaks. I finished this cabins well over a month ago however have still been unable to use it.
