One of the keys to a top quality log cabin is in the quality of wood used and this is where we can learn from the expertise of the Swedes. They have known for years that Nordic slow growing timber is ideal for outdoor buildings. This is because the timber grows very slowly ensuring that the grain in the wood is tightly compacted. This helps to make if more stable in the varying British weather and the number one choice for these Trentan 'Effingham' log cabins. As important this timber only come from sustainable sources and is properly kiln dried.
Being soundly built with Nordic timber and made in a controlled environment is very important. The construction of the doors and windows, which are upgraded to DGP+, play a great part in a log cabin so it's vital they can match up to the sturdiness of the timber used. And you will find that these doors and windows will deliver in 'spades'. Specially designed and laminated in parts of the doors and windows this gives unrivalled strength. This resists the natural movement of the timber. Combined with adjustable hinges (not cheap Chinese ones) and weather sills they can face everything the UK weather throws at them. Peace of mind is supplied standard - very reassuring!
