In Sweden Nordic timber has been their secret for many years and has been used extensively throughout their country. The slow growing nature of this timber makes it ideal for the garden as it is both stable and strong. And this is why the Epsom multi room combi log cabin with porch and its three rooms utilises it throughout to ensure the longest life for the building. Add in the great design with its contemporary and modern styling and you can appreciate why this should be the building for your garden. Sharing with your family will be a joy.
This 'Epsom' combination log cabin is built using the right materials, such as solid Nordic timber, as well as being made in the correct way. However you will find that some log cabin manufacturers take a different view and make 'down to a price'. This is NEVER a good long term view as these cheap materials will tend to let you down sooner than expected. So using cheap materials such as chipboard, OSB or other sheet materials may save a little money - in the long run won't be good. A quality log cabin should reflect the high grade materials used from the Nordic timber and through to double glazed doors and windows. Timber should only come from sustainable sources as well as being properly kiln dried. Little things can make for a superb building.
This multi room Epsom combination log cabin with its three rooms can be built by a competent DIY'er but is a little more involved than a 'run of the mill' standard cabin. And it's recommended that you use installers used to building these cabins. We have third party contacts for installers who can build this building for you. This will enable you to have peace of mind that it will be assembled correctly. Whilst it does add to the cost you can just spend your time thinking of ways to enjoy your new building. However, if you want a challenge it's there for you.
There are many web sites selling log cabins and they all tend to look good but how do you know what they will really be like? There is only one way and that is to actually go along and see examples 'in the flesh' so to speak. At our display site in Surrey, not far from Guildford, you can many examples of the Trentan range. You are able to go inside, jump on the floor, push the sides and examine the general build quality. By doing this you will know what you will be getting. The peace of mind by doing so is priceless so don't take a risk on a flashy web site or glossy brochure, always deal with a company which allows you to see their products. You won't regret it!
