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:
Can this be insulated? Or would it be too difficult?
A:
Yes, they can be insulated but it would be up to yourself to contact a professional who could do this for you, and the cabin does come with double glazed windows to help with insulation.

Q:
These kitsets are from Estonia but is the wood Russian grown?
A:
The timber used is from a timber called Nordic Spruce which is similar in properties to NZ pine. It is grown throughout Northern and Central Europe with a large proportion being produced from Norway.

Q:
So do you have to supply the roof? What is recommended? Corrugated iron?
A:
This comes with roofing felt, which is fine by itself. Or you could upgrade to our bitumin tiles, or yes you could do your own coloursteel or similar roofing.

Q:
What size and thickness would a concrete pad need to be for this shed?
A:
We suggest 100mm thick, in terms of dimensions we'd suggest looking at the engineering docs on our site. Perhaps give our sales team a call to discuss further.

Q:
You mention its untreated does that mean its not weather proof? Are we to treat it ourselves. Im not keen on chemicals. But very interested
A:
The idea is that it comes untreated so you can select the finish of your choice. We either recommend CD50X or a quality exterior paint of your choice. Check out the reviews on this and other models to see how other customers have finished theirs off.

One down two more to go!

We have purchased three of these cabins, first one was a learning curve, few highs and lows, by the end of this adventure we should be pros lol!

Great little atidio

Foundations are up to you. Best to lay a concrete slab. Joists, best to ditch them or bolt onto the slab. We installled poly under floor insulation between the joists, so all good Very easy to assemble if you ignore the instructions around installing the doors while the walls go up. Fit the door jamb after the walls are in. But beware the jambs are wider than the walls so you have to pack the facias and/or interior architraves. Whatever you do don't unwrap the pallet until you are fully ready to go. The material warps very quickly if not in place. Easy build for two DIY folk. Very warm. Maybe replace the roof material with steel one day but not needed so far. No leaks. Despite the challenge of deciphering the instructions I would recommend this product and like to build another one.

Port Underwood Hideaway

Here is our erected TT cabin in Port Underwood. We're thrilled with the cabin and now have electricity to it and more furniture in including a double bed. And we've now landscaped a tad around it so its looking a lot tidier!

It's been a journey but got there in the end

The cabin is well designed, though is lightweight for the size, particularly support for the doors which are double glazed and heavy but are mounted to light weight jambs. The wall thickness is only 44mm and for the cabin size feels under sized, but fits together well. Study the instructions, look at the plans efore you start, you'll work out the missing bits in the process. It feels a bit daunting but once things get fitted the remaining parts are obvious where they go. Make sure everything is level and don't let the timber especially the flooring get wet as it's untreated spruce and it will swell and warp. You'll need a number of star shaped screw driver bits, as the screws are not standard Phillips or square drive. Check waterproofing of felt, 2 of the 6 provided weren't water tight, you get heaps provided.

BackDrop's Lea Log Cabin Studio

Precision-cut and well-designed kitset, even to the method of packing. Construction manual would benefit from greater specificity--the bulk of the manual contains instructions on a generic cabin, not this model--but made up for by the quality of the materials. Highly recommended.

Shoddy door hardware lets it down

The wood materials of the cabin are great. But the door hardware is flimsy and after a month of use, my key is jammed in the lock and won't turn to lock the door (and secure my possessions inside) nor release the key. The slide bolts on the doors to hold each section closed are also fragile, and don't feel as if they will stand up to much use. The ceiling also leaks, although constructed by a professional builder.

The instructions are missing at least 60% of the build. Did it with a builder and he was also stuck on multiple aspects You end up just guessing and hoping for the best

Lea Cabin

Am working my way through the finishing touches to a Lea Cabin in Central Otago. Very happy with the quality of the cabin. Love the big wooden roof rafters and the double glazed French doors. Excluding the foundation build, which I did on my own over several days, the shed was up and weather proof in 3 days by myself and my partner.

The Prince Albert Inn

I decide to give my ‘garage bar’ an upgrade by giving it its own space in the garden. Once the foundations were down the cabin went together easily. The most time consuming part was the staining. We got electricity to the cabin and have all the electrics visible inside plastic surface mounted bronze painted conduit. Adds to the log cabin feel of the place. It’s quick to warm the place up in winter, and I’d recommend some kind of cooling for summer, even if its just a big fan. Heat pump, space invaders, darts, TV and it’s very own beer tap makes this awesome space the talk of the street. I can’t keep the neighbours out!!

Lea Cabin

Great product, only issue was the installation manual, not very clear in regards to all components and installation placement. Heaps of space & nice finish.
