This simple classic from Palmako is the sharp, contemporary garden getaway of your dreams.
With a footprint of 14.2m² this spacious summer house can be used as a home office, light-filled workshop, pool house or for entertaining.
The large front facing windows are double-glazed and let in plenty of light, making it the ideal spot to work, create or just relax. The double doors give easy access and mean you can open the space right up when the sun is shining, perfect for getting your thinking cap on or lounging on a sunny afternoon.
Crafted from kiln dried Nordic spruce, the chalet cut 44mm thick logs offer increased protection against the elements, while the tongue and groove floor and roof construction makes for a precise, quality finish.
With comprehensive instructions, assembly is easier than you might expect, while the house is delivered untreated and unfinished, so you can choose the stain or colour that fits best with your location.
Whether you want to set up the new (backyard) global headquarters for your business, create an uber-cool entertainment area, or even your very own boutique gym, this stylish log cabin is built to last and look great in any setting. Order yours today.

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.
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.

No problems with assembling the cabin. Important to provide a solid base. In my case 10 piles (down 800mm) and two 150 x 50 bearers and extra 150 x 50 joists. Only problem was the bitumen felt which I installed to provide temporary roof cover until I can install and iron roof. Despite significant overlapping of sheets and 500 tacks the roof leaked badly in the recent storm ( high winds forced water up under the overlaps).
I really like this cabin, and I highly recommend it. This cabin is really easy to install. I did most of the work. My neighbor helped me make the base and roof. The cabin base is supported by 20 big posts and 15 cm to 50cm high to ground. I made a steel roof, flashing and gutter for this cabin, just in case of the heavy rain in Auckland. It is a very wonderful little room for an office or kids playroom.
There’s no roof finished materials. Otherwise, it’s great.
I can highly recommend these cabins, Great project for me to do! Took about 4 solid days to put together myself (excluding the platform), and I still need to get it painted/stained - when it stops raining! I ended up buying a nail gun to put the floor in, if I had my time again, I would have also used it for the roof as that seemed to take the longest during the install. This cabin has made a great office and am warm as toast in here on a 12 degree day.
Everything was going well until I got to installing the roof joists. The parts were supplied cut to the wrong length If you buy this product not only check the parts but measure before you start.
Only thing I’ve built is a tin shed but this has been really fun. The instructions are minimalist but it’s straight forward. I used sleepers on gravel as a foundation- cheap and adjustable. Clamps or soaking helps deal with warped beams. Still got doors and floor to do but done entirely solo- 3 full days so far.
Excellent value cabin. Everything went like clockwork from delivery to assembly, which we did ourselves and took 2men 2days. We placed it on a wooden platform rather than a concrete slab. Only comment is the door head is a little low, tall people need to duck.
The Lisa is a good size, attractive and well priced product but be warned - the instructions are not very clear. Furthermore some of the planks were so warped on arrival that we had to cut them and then grout the cuts to make it fit. It was a real headache and over all took longer than expected to erect - excluding site prep be closer to 3 days than 2. I would recommend this to a friend IF they have a reasonable amount of building skills - which fortunately my friend did.
Absolutely great product..exceeded all expectations When it arrives take the time to identify all the pieces..there are a lot... then its plain sailing..Make sure the base is level and its plain sailing from there..easy to put together, but you need a good rubber mallet
