That is the beauty of being the manufacturer so every design and size is possible – even odd sizes like 5.78m x 4.34m present no problem.

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.|

Protecting Your Log Cabin At Your Home
The best bit of advice is to supplement the standard lock and add a good strong padlock on the door, even if you have a key lock the addition of a padlock will make it even harder for anyone to gain access to your building.
Another piece of good advice is to ensure that all the hinges have at least one nut and bolt which goes through the wall onto the inside so that the hinges can’t just be unscrewed. The same thing applied to the hasp and staple onto which you put your padlock. Always try to obtain the flap over type of hasp and staple so that when the padlock is closed, the screws on the hasp and staple are covered.
It’s always a good idea to protect your windows and ideally choose double glazed windows if you can as these are stronger if attacked. You can supplement log cabin security by adding metal bars on the inside as this will give even more protection.
Add an alarm to your cabin so that it will alert you to any security issues. It will also, hopefully, deter professional thieves if the alarm goes off. Always go for a wireless alarm so that it can’t be disarmed and when combined with a motion detector, you will have the best information to hand as quick as possible.
Having a gravel surround to your cabin will also help as the extra noise created will also deter intruders.
An outside life activated by a motion detector is an excellent deterrent as this thieves despise being seen in action. With the light going on outside your log cabin, it will alert you to their presence as well as unsettling the potential intruder.
