Spray impregnated doors & windows:
Spray-impregnation is a treatment to protect windows and doors against the fungi and rotting process. This treatment will take care that all parts are protected, that can’t be reached after installation. You can choose between a colourless spray-impregnation or one of Lugarde’s four translucent colours. For optimal protection we advise you to stain the windows and doors within one year. Attention If you choose the paint treatment for your windows and doors it is not necessary to choose the spray-impregnation. During staining a pre-treatment is included. Because Lugarde check EVERY order, this will be checked accurately in advance.
Painted doors & windows:
Would you like to paint as less as possible? Then choose a factory-treatment for your window and doors. Because you want to enjoy your log cabin as long as possible, we will protect your windows and doors against weather influences. This is done by treating them twice with a spray-treatment as a pre-treatment and then by painting in the colour of your choice. With these three layers the windows and doors are protected against the ‘great outdoors’. They will use the Dutch quality brand Sigma paint. Attention If you choose the paint treatment for your windows and doors it is not necessary to choose the spray-impregnation. During staining a pre-treatment of spray-impregnation is included. Because Lugarde check EVERY order, this will be checked accurately in advance.
Spray treatment of entire building:
Spray Treated Walls.
The entire building is treated including the parts that can’t be reached after assembly.
Your log cabin will be protected against the fungi and rotting process from day one.
You can choose from four translucent colours.
You will still need to treat the outside of your cabin within one year to protect it against any weather influences.
Pressure treatment is an alternative for staining and is an option for your cabin. So what does pressure treating mean?
Additional treatments like staining are not necessary anymore. You have a choice between a green or brown colour.
With pressure treating, the impregnating fluid is forced into the wood. The impregnated wood becomes swollen, so it is necessary to allow a longer delivery time to allow for drying.
When a log cabin is pressure treated there is no need for additional treatment.
After a while the wood will start to turn grey. The wood does not have to be stained but it is possible if you don’t like the grey colour.
Due to there high pressure during pressure treatment it is possible that the wood will change. Sometimes cracks and chinks may occur.
Fascia boards, roof beams and canopies will also be pressure treated.
Windows and doors will not be pressure treated.
|✅||We use only high-quality timber that originates from northern European countries with cold climates. The lower temperatures cause the trees to grow more slowly, meaning that the growth rings are closer together and the wood is more stable and durable.|
|✅||Our timber is kiln dried to a moisture content of approximately 14%-16% in a special drying room , thus reducing subsequent shrinkage.|
|✅||We keep wood waste and sawdust to a minimum and reuse it for other purposes.|

Children Are The Future In The Garden
Outdoor storage sheds are the work horses of the garden looking after all the gardening tools, garden furniture, bikes, lawn mowers and golf clubs for instance where as log cabins, summerhouses and potting sheds serve other purposes. There are also options such as dedicated children playhouses for the younger members of the family.
The important thing to remember is that children are very keen on learning and the great outdoors can be an important part of their development. By including children in the planting and growing of vegetables they will be able to appreciate what is involved in the food being put on their plate. This will ensure that as they grow up they, hopefully, will be more sympathetic to the green aspects to our world, which is important for our future.
Besides this they will learn new skills such as patience, working with others, and feeling good with themselves as well as improving their self confidence. At school they will be able to talk about what they have learnt and hopefully encourage other families to follow their lead.
I do remember as a child that I was very keen on the garden and hatched a plan to grow potatoes with my friends and sell them in St Peter’s Avenue (this was the high street) in Cleethorpes. Initially stored in my Dad’s storage shed- these were the days long before log cabins were even thought about except out in the Wild West in America – before I then sold the produce which we had grown. The money would be spent on typical children’s activities and we had a great deal of satisfaction that we had EARNT that OURSELVES.
The children’s playhouse, which can be adapted from any surplus storage building which you may have, is another valuable learning tool for your children, but don’t tell them it for their education. Children being children will rebel against this. However, again the playtime with their friends will enable them to bond better with other youngsters and again the art of sharing and being able to use their imagination. This is something that no computer game can simulate. You will find there is a great deal of choice available for children playhouses or, as I say, an existing garden store or cabin could be re utilised. Grown ups bond in adapted log cabins or garden workshops where a ‘few beers’ can be enjoyed
This was even noted in the papers recently when Lucy and Dom Redmond, keen gardeners, were praised because of their beliefs that the garden should be used to educate their children as well as entertaining them. Their daughters, Tilly and Flori received encouragement to be involved in the garden from a very early age. Besides the gardening they should be allowed to play freely so they can learn respect for the garden, which is very important. So not only is their home a playground it also includes the great outdoors.
Their parent’s view was that children need to learn what can be harmful and by encouraging them to be able to use all the garden with few boundaries this can be achieved. Sometimes we, as parents, restrict what our children can do because we know they can be harmful and this makes sense. However we learnt by being involved in different situations and this way is always the best way to remember.
However, it’s vital that children are taught about the potential dangers of the garden and what items stored away outdoors that they should not be touched. It also goes without saying that all dangerous substances which may be lurking in your outdoor buildings and cabins should be kept securely locked away.
