Lugarde makes some of the best log cabins
in the UK, and more importantly, they are made to match YOUR needs. All of their products are very versatile and can meet most things thrown at them. But the reasons Lugarde stand out from the ordinary are many as follows.
1/ Decades of Experience.
Lugarde has been producing the very best log cabins and garden rooms
since 1978. And since then, they have developed their range to reflect the quality right down to the smallest detail. This dedication has enabled Lugarde to become the market leader in the UK and the Netherlands
2/ Bespoke Log Cabin Are The ‘Norm.’
They understand that all customers are unique and that their choice of cabin should reflect their particular requirements. Although there is a choice of standard designs, over 90% of the buildings supplied are custom made. That is the beauty of being the manufacturer, so every design and size is possible – even odd dimensions like 5.78m x 4.34m present no problem. AND the best part is that there is no premium for being fully bespoke. A Lugarde cabin delivered to Surrey for the price of their standard models.
3/ Show sites to View Their Products.
1st Choice Leisure Buildings, which was established in 1979, have a Surrey show site where you can see examples of these cabins. We can advise the customer and often suggest things that were not thought about ensuring the IDEAL cabin.
4/Many Extras Are Included
The general top quality build quality allows for many features to be included as standard. This ensures there are no ‘half measures’ or building ‘down to a price’ – NEVER a good idea. E.G. SKG approved (2 stars) three-point locks, double glazed doors and windows to keep the buildings cosy and pressure treated foundation beams and much more.
5/ Quality Of Timber.
The decades of experience which Lugarde has given them the knowledge to select the suitable material for their buildings. So they use quality sources of timber from northern countries
as the cold climate ensures the wood grows slowly and subsequently is far stronger and robust. To further enhance this, the timber is then kiln dried in special drying rooms to approx 14-16% moisture content, making it ideal for the UK’s variable weather. This procedure reduces the expansion and shrinkage of the timber and its quality.
6/ Lugarde Log Cabin System.
On all Lugarde log cabins their sturdy construction system
is used. This involves a crossover corner connection joint that both water and wind resistant. The is available in all three sizes of timber, 28mm, 44mm and 68mm. As standard the 28mm and 44mm have diamond-cut end effect. The much thicker 68mm boards have a double tongue-and-groove for enhanced stability and are supplied with straight cut ends. There is, however, an option to supply the 44mm logs with a straight-cut end.
Foundation beams are pressure treated and joined together with corner strips made from rustproof aluminium.
7/ Many Extra Options.
The amount of extra options appears limitless, and this further enhances the bespoke nature of these buildings. With choices such as external floors, sliding glass walls, full insulation. Impregnated internal floors etc. Please take a look at some of the buildings in our gallery to get an idea of what is available. Or chat to us.
