It's crucial that your choice of cabin is for one which is strong and well designed to suit the UK weather. This is the reason Nordic slow growing timber is used as it's renowned for being more stable in an outdoor environment. This timber is the mainstay of log cabins and outdoor buildings in Sweden and adds to their beautiful country. And if it will stand up to the weather they get then it will stand up to anything the British weather will throw at it. Also the design of these 'Knaphill' utilises the strength of the Nordic timber to ensure the strongest log cabin available to you.
A key element of Nordic timber is its strength and this is why we use this on these log cabins. It's possible to buy timber from cheaper sources and which may save a few pounds but the fact is that it's better to make it with the correct and best materials in the first place. The relatively small difference in cost is well worth it to ensure you get the longest and best life from your new log cabin. The policy of making down to a price restricts many log cabin firms from using adequate materials so give serious thought to this before making a wrong decision. Add in the special storm proof windows designed specially for these buildings and you can be sure of the longest life of it.
It's relatively easy because of the clever design of this superb 'Knaphill' clockhouse log cabin its their modular construction for a good DIY'er to build it.. Each interlocking log slots into place one at a time as it is built up. All sections are cut to size and are normally pre-assembled at the factory to ensure every part fits. They are then dismantled, bar coded and then flat packed before being shipped to the customer. This ensures it's 'child's play' when you come to build it - well nearly. However we can offer a log cabin installation service where the building can be built for you. If you choose this - it will definitely lighten the load and will save you time and effort. All you would have to worry about is how to enjoy your new log cabin in your garden. Got to be worth considering!
