It has 44mm thick interlocking logs which extend out 100mm of the corners as well as extra thick floor and roof its strength is unbeatable.
There is no nasty, cheap materials used on these hexagon shaped cabins as the grade of timber used is top notch.

They are enhanced with part laminated material which reinforces and stops any possible twisting or warping effect.

With the double glazed windows as standard this will help to make it a joy to be in. All timber naturally from renewable sources and is properly kiln dried.
