Don't take a chance buying 'blind' so where ever possible try to view the cabin you are interested in or, at least, take a look at other cabins in that range. Our Log Cabins Display Area is near Woking in Surrey where you can see the Trentan range of log cabins for yourself. Don't take chances. You won't regret it.
A log cabin is a popular addition to the garden as its natural appearance helps it to blend in seamlessly. This Trentan Ockham log cabin is available as a single room or with 3 rooms and both will be a delight to share with your family and friends. With its modern look and superb balcony area is a wonderful addition to any garden. There are two sizes and the larger cabin benefits from two inner rooms making it ideal for being by the pool or for two separate storage areas or dens. Other uses include a home office or hobby room and I'm sure there are many other uses as well. This is the beauty of this very adaptable Normandy log cabin with its great design and strength.
Nordic timber was the natural choice for this log cabin as its slow growing nature ensures it will be the most stable and long lasting building. It can also throw all off the British weather can throw at it. And the Swedes have known this for years and it only nowadays are we, in Britain, starting to catch up. With its extra thick 70mm (nearly 3 inches thick) logs and the great design this log cabin will last and be enjoyed by many generations.
It's possible to make a log cabin with material other than Nordic timber and, or, with chipboard, OSB board or other cheap 'sheet' materials and this will save a few pounds. But it's always best to make the building in the correct way with the correct materials in the first place. This means that even though the Ockham log cabin make cost a little more the quality materials used actually make it a better value building. So be very wary of any log cabin made 'down to a price' and always buy the best you can as it will pay off in the long run. The Ockham has double glazed doors and windows as standard as well as storm proof fitting for peace of mind.
The logical design of these log cabins means that a decent DIY'er would be able to build them without too much problem and they do come with assembly guide lines to assist. However it will suit some people to have the building assembled for them. And to that end we have recommended third party installers who can do this for you. The time saved is well wort the expense. And by doing so all you need to worry about is how to enjoy your new building. How good is that?
A glossy brochure or flashy web site is no substitute for actually viewing a log cabin 'in the flesh' so to speak as you can be taken in by them. Certainly many will deliver what you think they will but don't risk not getting what you think you are getting. Wherever possible try to view any potential log cabin before deciding to buy. We do have a display site close to Guildford and not too far from the M25 where you can see examples for your self. You can walk inside and see for your self how strong they are, how good the doors and window are and this will help you to make up your mind. This can only be done by viewing. Don't take risks. We even have detailed delivery directions from most of the South East on this page.
