Bespoke Log Cabins should be manufactured by companies that really have an engineering background!
99.9% of Log Cabin companies do not!
Something to ponder on while thinking about whom to purchase your bespoke log cabin from.
There are log cabin companies out there in the big bad world that will offer structural calculations on all their roofs, but lets stop that quickly!!! (No point offering Structural Calculations on a Log Cabin Roof if you do not have structural calculations for the walls, as it’s the walls that holds up the roof) and this kind of dangerous foolish crap goes on day after day!
Too many customers are bamboozled with sales people feeding them absolute manure and as this industry is not regulated, so many people are conned out of their hard earned money!
There are cabin companies out there that manufacturer as part of their product range timber stick buildings.
The reason we use the word stick and not frame as these are exactly what these buildings are, complete and utter rubbish that last possibly 5 years and then you will start having problems that eventually lead to the demise of the building.
If you are looking for a timber frame bespoke garden office then the timber frame with insulation should be about 290mm to 310mm thick “minimum”, there are companies offering a pathetic 117mm walls.
117mm thick timber walls, which in all honestly is completely inadequate, and with just 25mm of insulation, well you have to be a complete and utter fool to purchase one! You need 250mm of insulation, with framing of 45mm x 195mm, out side clad in Siberian larch, not good old shiplap, or some 12mm t&g pine!
Bespoke building do not need to cost an arm or a leg, you just need to know the right people to purchase from, and that’s where it gets difficult.
We heard a story, about a fitter from one of the largest bulk manufacturers in the country offering his service to a client, it is reported that he built her a timber frame bespoke building, the building had a sliding doors which were double glassed and the side window was single glassed!
The horror stories that we hear told to us from customers that are just so fed up with either waiting for their orders and have cancelled, or with customers that have had a cabin delivered and it was just not possible to put it up as they had so many bits missing!
