The choice of Nordic slow growing timber is a deliberate choice as its qualities means it can face all the UK weather throws at it with ease. In fact, the Swedes have know about these qualities for generations and we are only just starting to catch up. This Nordic timber is very dense and this gives it the stability in all types of weather. The design enables these log cabins to have all the timber working together and this makes the timber even stronger.
Quality Nordic timber is the order of the day and although it's possible to make log buildings with cheaper material and save a few pounds it better to make them with the correct timber for the job. The small difference in the cost is worth every penny the best value garden cabin does not have to be the cheapest one. By making log cabins down to a price restricts these cheap companies from manufacturing soundly built and long lasting building. Always try to buy the best you can as it will pay off in the long run. Add in features such as double glazing throughout and storm proof doors and windows and you will be thankful you did.
