Garden cabins come in shapes and sizes; they also come in all different thickness.

There are 19 mm, 28 mm, 35 mm 44 mm, 58 mm and 70 mm.

Log Cabins can also come in 100 mm and above, but the standard garden cabins come in 19 mm, 28 mm, 35 mm 44 mm, 58 mm and 70 mm as these are the most popular sizes.

So what sizes is good for what purpose.

 

So here is a guide to help you!

 

19 mm log cabins are actually not really log cabins; they are manufactured from roof board material, which are fashioned together to resemble something that looks like a cabin!

Sadly 19 mm log cabins are manufactured in a certain way that does not allow the notches to be waterproof, the board is just to thin to cut twice.

So this one of the main reasons why we do not offer 19 mm log cabins.

 

They are also extremely expensive when you actually look at how many cubic meters of timber are used for the manufacturing process.

 

So are 19 mm Log Cabins worth the amount asked for them, the answer sadly is no!

They are a waste of good quality roofing boards, the windows and doors fitted to them are normally rubbish, and the hardware is cheap. Even on price they are super expensive!

 

28mm log cabins are nearly in the same league as 19 mm cabins, they are what we use as floor boards, but they do make a great 3 m x 3 m garden reading room, or a place to grow flowers, storing your push bikes, or BBQ, but saying all that, they are still cheap, and will not last more than say 4 years and you will start to notice windows and doors sagging, the building leaking, and November the 5th will come around and its used to light the bonfire!

 

19mm and 28mm log cabins are normally bought because of their price tags, but when spending say £800 to £1200 you have to ask yourself if this is really a good purchase. Are you buying a cabin that will last the test of time, or are you just throwing your money into the wind?

 

35mm log cabins are great, cheap, and fairly good at keeping water out and normally well priced.

Most come with budget double glazing, and the windows and door frame work is that normally of a 44mm log cabin.

A lot of budget mills sell these as they are a quick turn around and normally they are honestly priced, and if you don’t have a high budget, then a 34mm cabin is normally a safe bet!

 

 

44mm log cabins have now become the publics most sought after size, they are great value for money and most of the time they are water proof and come with windows and doors that will last a couple of years with out too much problem.

 

70mm Log Cabins are if cut from good quality timber, which has been dried correctly and notched correctly are fantastic value and well worth investing in.

Quality Log Cabins, that is a key word so many companies use to advertise their cabins on the Internet.

But? Is the word “Quality” being misused?

 

There are so many ways to find out if the log cabin you are thinking of purchasing is high end a budget or a rip off completely on price!

 

Firstly, just because a log cabin is manufactured in Sweden, Finland or Germany, it does not mean the quality is higher from that of the Baltic’s or Russia.

 

In most cases, the products coming from the Baltic’s like windows and doors, and log cabins are actually better, as the price is lower, plus the timber is better, and not forgetting we do not have high taxes which means our pricing is normal, not inflated such as Sweden and Finland.

 

Most people believe that if the price is higher, then so is the quality, absolute rubbish!

 

Take for instance one company proclaiming to be German, who manufacturer in Poland and they do actually manufacture quite good Log cabins ( this I will agree on), but they sell them to their customers for an extortionate sum, and I mean that quite literally. I will be the first to say this,, they are greedy bastards!

 

If you take a normal 5m x 5m with standard normal double glazing etc, costing from most other companies would be around £5500 delivered in 44mm log thickness, then our German company will charge £2.500 more, because you are made to believe by their dealer outlets that the quality is so superior than other cabins, this is absolute rubbish.

 

I personally have spoke to one of the outlets, and it was almost like speaking to someone who was part of a cult! There are too many manufacturers giving advice to their dealers on how to extract high prices from the public, by using words such as, Top Quality, Eco, Durable, FSC, PEFC, Superior, Excellent, and the Best!

 

So!!!! How can you tell the Crap from the Quality?

 

Over the years, we have been able to spot companies that are here today and gone tomorrow, we are also able to spot a quality log cabin from that of the Bulk market that litters our market and the gardens of Europe.

 

Firstly, if a log cabin is worth its salts, it will have only quality windows and doors, yes, I am harping on again about the windows and doors, but they are the most important part of the cabin. Moreover, they must be standard, not an upgrade!

 

Our Windows and Doors on our new Range of Deluxe Log Cabins are not just absolutely amazing, they are truly the best windows and doors in the industry, and they are fantastic for the price. Also we are the only company that offers them standard now on a Garden Range.

I am sure you have done lots of calling around asking different companies about quality and what you get for the price.

 

Most will try their hardest to up sell to you and say that what they are offering is so much cheaper than everyone else for the price, but when you actually do the research you will find that their quality is on par to 99.9% of the other companies, and that you are actually being sold a pack of lies and not a pack of quality timber.

 

 

So Windows and Doors as we see are the most important part of a cabin, well actually the most important part of the cabin is the roof, but as we use the largest roof Purlins and thick roof boars in the business I am not too worried our roofs will come falling down any time yet, plus all our cabins walls have metal roods in them that come standard to tighten the construction down and make it stiff and secure, and that our 28mm floor board stops that springy bouncy effect it would have if the floor was 19mm which most companies tend to offer, (OK I am bragging),,, Yes windows and doors, are so important.

 

If you are thinking of running your business from a log cabin, and keeping it warm and dry through out the year, then sadly most log cabins, which are sold as standard log cabin, well 99.999% of the doors are not designed to keep heat in, or cold out!

 

If you look at most cabins, you will notice that part of the door, unless its fully glassed you will notice that it is made up of T&G timber boards, which are slotted together, now for a garden room, or a shed, it’s a cheap and great way of manufacturing the door.

 

We have been manufacturing this kind of door since we started 14 years ago, and for cost and ease of manufacturing, its a great way of keeping costs down, and sharing that low cost of construction with the public!

 

Our CEO has always grumbled about the windows and doors, he has always wanted to offer a top quality windows and doors, he used to shout from time to time that if only Logcabins.lv could offer a sprayed CE certified Window and Door set with every cabin for a sensible price, then hopefully the bulk manufacturers would have to sit up and listen stop wasting timber and precious resources and offer better!

 

This has been a burning desire of our CEO Kevin for years, and when we opened our New Production Line, Kevin decided then that all the New Deluxe Range from the log size of 45mm and above would have only have CE certified quality windows and fully insulated quality CE doors, and that we would be the first company to offer these as Standard not an expensive upgrade, and to top it off, we would offer them sprayed to the customers choice.

 

So to the question at the beginning, how can you know what a quality log cabin is?

 

Easy… CE certified argon filled double glazed unites in the windows and doors, that your supplier offers these as standard, that the door has an Oak Threshold, and that the tilt and turn mechanism on the windows is a of a residential quality, not push this, pull that and twist this, just to then open it.

 

You need 28mm flooring; large purlins that sit 90 degrees in the apex, but most of all you need quality through out and to top it off great pricing.

 

I think you can agree that for any company to compete against CE certified, BM Trada Certified Double Glazed Windows and Doors, Sprayed to any colour you want, and offered in a standard Range of Log Cabins at almost the same price as most rubbish offered on the web !

Yes! We are completely and utterly mad!

Or are we???
