The Palmako Sandra 21.5 + 3.7m² Log Cabin with a feature front terrace makes for a dream garden getaway with a rustic twist.
Crafted from kiln dried Nordic spruce, the chalet cut 70mm thick logs offer increased protection against the elements, while the tongue and groove floor and roof construction makes for a precise, quality finish. Featuring double-glazed windows that let in plenty of light, this cabin becomes an ideal space for anything from work to play.
The terrace area of the Sandra is fronted with attractive picket style boards which offers a rustic effect, an ideal place to spend the afternoon relaxing. The internal space of the cabin is well proportioned to include 3 rooms- a large open plan space with 10.7m² and two smaller rooms with 5.4m² each. Each small room can easily accommodate furniture to be an office, a study nook, or an art room, depending on your desired use of the building.
With comprehensive instructions, assembly is easier than you might expect. Joists & terrace boards are treated, while the remainder of the house is delivered untreated and unfinished, you can choose the stain or colour that fits best with your location.
The 5 Year Manufacturer Warranty means you know it’s going to be a standout feature for your garden for many years to come.
Whether you need a quiet space to work, or somewhere to banish noisy teenagers, this log cabin is a stylish, practical addition to any backyard.

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. Visit building.govt.nz/new-building-consent-exemptions/ for more information.
Specifications and diagrams are included with this cabin, however PS1 documentation is not available. Make sure you check requirements with your local council before purchasing.
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.
