How Do You Make The Right Choice?
Trentan Garden Cabins - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Trentan Apex Garden Cabins

It appears to be easy to purchase a log cabin – just look on the internet to see a model you like and then try to find the best price – simple! Well – NO. Because there is such a large range of wooden log buildings available, the quality (or lack of it) varies considerably. You really need to tread carefully to ensure you are not disappointed.

You need to consider so many different things before you ‘sign on the dotted line’ so ask as many questions as you want and ensure you are happy with the answers. You can then be reasonably sure you won’t be disappointed.

1st Choice’s Trentan Wooden Cabins – are Made to Very High-Quality Standards

Optional Cabin Installation

Buy From an Established Business
Trentan Garden Cabins - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Trentan Pent Garden Cabins

By buying from an established business you can be reasonably sure that they have a great deal of expertise in the market. More importantly, they listen to their customers. This doesn’t mean avoid younger companies but just be a little more aware of their trading record.

Most established businesses have bricks and mortar premises where their website is simply a tool to introduce their products to the public. These businesses tend to have staff available to talk to about the range of buildings on offer.

1st Choice has been in the outbuilding industry since 1979. We have a physical office where you can talk to us or visit, as well as two display sites.

Double Glazed As Standard

Always View Log Cabins for Sale Before Buying

Trentan Two Three Room Cabins

With the internet, it’s often difficult to see what your new log outbuilding will be like. This is why it’s important it is so important to view your log cabin before delivery. This way you can see how well it’s been made, whether there is sufficient head height, whether the doors and windows are solidly made and how good the timber is

Whilst some cabin internet-only companies may claim it’s best to buy online, it is not always possible to be sure what you are getting. If they are not prepared to let you see their log buildings beforehand then be very wary. The cheapest price is not always the best value.

Ensure You Go For the Thickest Timber
Trentan Corner Timber Cabins - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Trentan Corner Wood Cabins

The thinnest timber you should use for log cabins is 44mm. This thickness provides adequate strength to the building which makes it suitable for most uses. Thicker 70mm timber is the best as it is naturally insulating. This means that you do not need to install expensive wall insulation. Cool in summer and warm in winter is the best combination you could possibly have!

I have seen cases where 19mm ‘logs’ (how they call them logs I don’t know!) are used which makes for a very cheap, lightweight building. I wouldn’t want to lean on one! 28mm logs can be suitable, provided the right quality of timber is used. But certainly not any fast-growing timber

1st Choice Standard Cabin – Recommends 44mm Timber But 70mm is The Best!

Felt Tiles As Standard on Apex Cabins

Insist on Double Glazing in Your Garden Log Cabins
Trentan Corner Timber Cabins - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Trentan Clockhouse Log Cabins

The better log cabins have double glazing as standard, but cheaper models only have single glazed windows. This does reduce the cost of the building marginally but it makes it harder to keep the building warm in Winter. Conversely, it is also and harder (and not many people think of this) to keep the cabin cooler in Summer.

You will also find that double glazed windows are substantially stronger than single panes due to the two panes of glass with its vacuum inside it. So warmth and strength as standard.

1st Choice use Double Glazed Windows as standard – All pre-hung and framed with adjustable hinges!

Optional EPDM Felt on Pent Cabins

Are All Sections Pre-Cut to Shape?
Trentan Timber Garage Cabins - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Trentan Cabin Garage

Ensure that all gable and shaped ends are supplied cut to size & shape. Many cheap cabin kit manufacturers supply shaped which need to be cut by you. This may save money but means more work for you, and the possibility of mistakes.

It makes good sense to have the least amount of work as possible. The best option is to have the cabin built for you. True – it is more expensive but you can be sure that your new log building will be built correctly and all you need to do is to enjoy it with your family in your garden.

All 1st Choice Log Cabins have pre-cut panels to shape as well as size.

Over 60 Different Sizes and Styles

Features of The Trentan Log Cabin Sheds

Our Trentan Scandinavian garden cabins are available in several sizes. The collection stretches to 50 different models, all of which feature superb light & airiness.

Installing one of these garden cabins in your garden will definitely enhance your and your family’s lifestyle! Trentan timber buildings are incredibly versatile, suiting all manner of uses, from a garden office, summer house, games room, or just a ‘hidey-hole’ to cut yourself off!

You will appreciate just how wonderful the outdoors is when you share with your family and friends. Superbly designed to fit into most garden – what good design should do.

Today’s Life is Enhanced with These Trentan Garden Cabins for Sale

Felt tiles in a choice of colours are included FREE on all apex garden cabins. On pent cabins we supply a superior polyester-based green mineral rolled roofing felt with an option for EPDM rubber felting for amazing weatherability.

Amazing Strength As Standard and at No Extra Charge

Nordic timber, which is slow-growing, is renowned for its warmth and durability by the Swedish. It sits at the core of these superb Trentan log buildings. The timber, which grows in the colder part of the world for many years gives these buildings their great strength.

Trentan uses this timber in cabins from small buildings right up to their large log cabins to guarantee a very long life. The design and style of these buildings ensure they are suitable for British gardens.

Trentan standard windows look amazing, but optional Georgian windows are available on many of the models

Remember it’s your garden cabin so it should be your choice.

The Quality of Material Used is Key to Quality Garden Rooms

Trentan’s UK log cabin houses range is built from solid Nordic timber. You won’t find any chipboard, OSB (Sterling) board or any other cheap materials.

The materials used are always top quality which ensures the longest life for your cabin. Quality oozes from Trentan buildings. The timber used is kiln-dried and is sustainably sourced.

Log Cabin Kits Installation Service

The clever design of these Trentan Scandinavian buildings makes them easy for us to install. This design originates in the factory where the various pieces are pre-assembled to ensure all they fit correctly.

They are then barcoded for ease of assembly and then flat-packed for delivery. Some people enjoy the challenge of self-assembly of a flat pack log cabin but you may decide you would like it installed for you.

We can help! Our assembly service option will ensure an easy life for you and your family. That’s got to be a great option!

We also offer a base building service in many areas, to make life even easier for you!

Before Buying Always View at a Garden Buildings Display Site

There’s only one sure way to find out what your home cabin will look like and that is to take a drive to view. By doing so you can be sure that the choice is the right one for you.

It will also ensure there won’t be any nasty surprises and you will know what to expect when your log cabin is installed!

Come and visit our large display sites near Woking, Guildford and Farnham in Surrey, where you can see examples of these log buildings and inspect the quality. We are open 7 days a week. You can be sure that your log cabin will meet your needs.

Our family business background in garden building manufacturing started in 1979. This experience is important to us and also helps to give us the know-how about the quality of materials which should be used.

Our Ethos is ‘Make to a Standard – NOT to a price’.

How Qualified Are We To Offer Advice?

We, being a family business, have been involved in the manufacture of quality buildings since 1979 when Robin started his first production unit.

Craig, Robin’s son, joined in 1990 and trained at Guildford College in joinery. For over 20 years we ran one of the largest UK shed companies in the south of England and made the conscious decision to only deal with quality materials which we knew would last the test of time.

This ethos probably comes from our upbringing. Robin’s father and grandfather were Master Butchers in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire where quality and customer service was always the keyword behind their businesses.

Craig is a key member of the business and is helping 1st Choice to embrace the challenges of the 21st century. With his two children, Daniel and Rebecca, the future looks very promising. You can see we are not just salespeople selling a range of products we know nothing about.  We have the history behind us to ensure that when you choose ‘1st Choice’ then you know your building actually will be ‘1st Choice’!

Luxury Log Cabins

During the cold winter months it makes you wonder how we can sit outdoors in shorts and tee shirts or ladies with their short dresses. With the heavy snow over most parts of the country during the winter makes us think of the Swiss Alps maybe its luxury log cabins.

The snow can be welcome for a short while and children enjoy playing about in it, I know my grandson Daniel, does. When the snow arrived my wife went to the local hardware shop and bought 2 sledges. One made of unsympathetic plastic and one made from wood. Guess which one I preferred?

I started my log cabin factory back in 1979. In that year the snow didn’t last too long and the sledges stayed in the cabin!

This time of the year can be spent planning for the winter with decisions to be made about whether the garden furniture can should stay outside or be removed to the safety of our cabin.

The barbecue often is showing signs of rusting so maybe I’ll pull that inside as well. Having said that I don’t use it very often and remains in my garden for most of the year.

Thinking About Next Summer

The British love their gardens and there are many garden shows are spread throughout the year.  This gives us the opportunity to see the latest gardens, plants, shrubs garden equipment and also the range of log cabins for sale. The sheer range of displays is breathtaking and besides giving people ideas of what can be achieved in their gardens, are superb social events.

The Chelsea Flower Show is probably the ‘biggie’ and is highly prestigious with Royalty, celebrities, film stars and all the ‘top dogs’ making their way there. After the press day the pubic get the opportunity to take in the show. Whilst it used to be the largest flower show Hampton Court Show, about 6-7 weeks later, is now larger. However this does not make the Chelsea Flower Show any the less because of this.

The show does have entries from all over the world and who display the latest and innovative gardens to whet the taste buds of  the gardening community.

In all its years exhibits has included flowers from nurseries and model gardens. Both are looked forward to but the model gardens are probably the most thought provoking.

The Royal family traditionally always attend the on the opening day each year and see the gardens at its best. This show which has been held at the home of the Chelsea Pensioners, the Chelsea Hospital grounds, every year since 1913 except during war time.

How the exhibitors manage to get their entries to bloom at the right time is awe inspiring! Over the years there have been untold numbers of exhibitors but two, McBeans Orchids and Blackmore & Langdon, have appeared at every one since 1913. A truly remarkable record.

The show does have some restrictions as to what can be displayed and the use of coloured sculptures is banned. This means that the very British gnome has not been seen in these exhibits for a while. However, it’s believed that some have been smuggled in!

The Best Log Cabins In The UK

An application to the council to build a number of garden log cabins in a north-east England would have been turned down. Durham County Council rejected the application for six new cabins in the wood after two petitions and a number of objections against the proposal were received.

Local resident, Malcolm Sutcliffe, described the planned buildings as ‘Swiss Chalets’ (which I think look rather good!) it was reported in the Wear Valley Mercury.

The idea behind the scheme was to bring tourists to the area and to help the local economy. One of the issues was the fact that a number of pine trees would have needed to be removed to enable the cabins to be built. However, I am sure that the they could have been screened to ensure they blended into the surroundings.

The committee chairman, Mike Dixon, said it was always a fine balancing act between the need for tourism revenue, which would help the local businesses and what would be best for the area.

He went on to say that the woodland is an attraction for tourists and if they disturbed that then they would lose these visitors. He never said how much income the visitors to the woodlands brought in and what the projected benefits could have been if the log cabins had been allowed to go ahead.

Durham Council’s arborculturalist had suggested that the trees were of low quality and it was only the sheer number of them made them an important landscape feature. Why people would want to visit a wood with low quality trees, as important as they are to the air we breathe, seems to be a very strange argument in rejecting the plans.

Recently a similar plan for luxury log cabin construction was passed in South Derbyshire despite local objections. Whether the arguments were the same, I don’t know, but obviously the council in Derbyshire took a different view. The moral is to always check if you are in any doubt.

Garden Log Cabins

As in England Australian first time buyers are desperately trying to get on to the property ladder. When a log cabin came onto the market a bidding war broke out. The Garden log cabin was a luxury model, not anything like the normal sheds which might be found in most gardens. This cabin which was 42 ft long was originally used to promote the state of Tasmania and was made from plywood and fibreglass; an unusual combination. However, its appearance resembled a whole tree trunk laying on its side.

This unique cabin had in addition to the doors on both ends, wheels attached which meant it could be transported anywhere. It certainly would be a very strange sight to see on the roads. A major bidding war broke out between prospective 1st time buyers, desperate to get on the property ladder.

The winner eventually having to pay £7600 for this unusual cabin. The entrepreneur who was selling it had put in his advert ‘ if you put in some plumbing and windows and obtain a plot of land to site it you will have your house which will become your home’.

The design company, Treehugger, which makes some of the best garden log cabins, claimed that they were the most efficient types of property when it comes to cutting carbon emissions. These type of property are certainly different to what most people would consider as a home and just goes to show what a little thought and initiative can do!

How Do I look After My Log Cabin?

There are many types of ways from water based paints to fully pressurised tanalised treatments.

Years ago one of the favourite coverings was creosote, often mixed with old engine oil. This did a sterling job protecting the timber from the harsh weather. It had a distinctive smell, quite strong, which tended to linger for quite a while.

Not ideal if you had treated the inside of a building you wanted to work in. Improved safety rules were introduced in 2003 as creosote it had proved dangerous to use indoors. From 30th June 2004 it became illegal to even store it or keep it in any form. A new substitute, Crecote has been introduced for people who wish to get a similar effect.

Water based preservative are commonly used on the cheaper log cabins, mainly serving the purpose of a base coat. The water is actually a carrier for the chemicals and helps the them to adhere and react with the wood thus protecting it.

It can be either painted on or sprayed on. The shed panels can also be dipped into a bath of this treatment.

Solvent and spirit based shed preservatives are the preferred method of treating timber. The solvent is a carrier for the chemicals and works far better than water. It gives greater protection to the timber. Again this can be painted on, sprayed on or the panels can be dipped. Very few people dip their shed panels because the process can be quite dangerous.

Oil based treatments are sometimes used. The oil holds the chemicals and bonds the chemicals to the wood. The oil soaks into the timber giving a certain amount of ‘give’, helping with the natural movement of your timber panels.

For cheaper sheds tanalising, or pressure treating, is the very best you can do for the timber. The process consists of the timber being put into a sealed vat. Tanalith E fluid is forced into the wood under pressure. This ensure that the preservative goes a great deal further than just brushing or spraying.

The treatment also protects against fungal and insect attacks giving your cabin a long life. The appearance of the timber is quite attractive having a light natural green tint to the wood which can blend into the garden. However, you can add a colour treatment if you wish. This treatment is ideal for any building in an enclosed space where you like the idea of low maintenance.

Whatever treatment you have it is important to keep an eye on it to ensure that you re-treat when necessary. The only extra treatment which the tanalised cabin may need is a water repellent such as Thomsons WaterSeal. This would stop any dampness coming through if the building was subjected to heavy rain. (the timber is treated against rotting and is not a water repellent in its own right)

Water based treated flat pack log cabins should be treated within 4 weeks of delivery and then every 2-3 years depending on the weather conditions. The same applies with the spirit or solvent based treatments. With the oil based treatment, after the building has its first coat you could get up to 4-5 years before anything needs doing again.

I do not recommend any of the water based treatments for the top coats and would only recommend spirit, solvent or oil base preservatives despite what the manufacturers may say. Water based treatments are fine for base coats or for fences.

Some cabin manufacturers claim to offer a 10 year guarantee, even with the water based treatment, however, like most things in life this is not as good as offer as it seems.

There are strict conditions stating that if the building is not treated EVERY year then the guarantee would be null and void. Clearly this means that the treatment they are applying only last for ONE year, leaving you to carry on with the upkeep!

With the benefit of my 40 years in the garden cabins business I hope that the above advice is useful for you to understand how to get the best out of your new garden shed or garden building. Over the years there have been many improvements and changes to the treatments available, some good and some bad, however, if you look after your log cabin it will last many many years.

There are many types of treatments available, ranging from water-based treatment through to fully pressurised tanalised treatments. Years ago one of the favourite treatments was creosote, often mixed with old engine oil. This did a sterling job protecting the timber from the harsh weather. This had a distinctive smell, quite strong, which tended to linger for quite a while.

Solvent and spirit-based shed preservatives is the preferred and better method of putting treatment onto timber. The solvent again is a carrier for the chemicals and works far better than the water. The solvent or spirit helps greatly and gives greater protection to the timber. Again this can be painted on, sprayed on or dipped. Very few people dip their shed panels in this dues to the possibility of reactions to the operatives doing the dipping.

Oil-based treatments and you are moving into the realms of ‘Rolls Royce’ types of treatment. The oil holds the chemicals and bond the chemicals into the wood. The oil soaks into the timber giving a certain amount of ‘give’ helping with the natural movement of your timber garden shed.

Tanalising, or pressure-treating, is the very best you can do for your timber. The tanalising process consists of the timber being put into a sealed vat.

The appearance of the timber is quite attractive having a light natural green tint to the wood which can blend into the garden. However, you can add a colour treatment to the wood if you wish. This treatment is ideal for any building in an enclosed space where treating the building would prove difficult or where you like the idea of very low maintenance.

However, whatever treatment you have it is important to keep an eye on it to ensure that you re-treat when necessary. The only extra treatment which the tanalised shed may need is a water repellent treatment, such as Thomsons WaterSeal. This would stop any dampness coming through if the building was subjected to torrential rain. (the timber is treated against rotting and is not a water repellent in its own right)

Water-based treated flat pack log cabins should be re-treated within 4 weeks of delivery, ideally, and then every 2-3 years depending on the weather conditions. The same would apply with the spirit or solvent-based treatments. With the oil-based treatment after the building has its first coat you could get up to 4-5 years before anything needs doing again with the exception of any sides facing into the weather.

I do not recommend any of the water-based treatments for the topcoats and would only recommend spirit, solvent or oil based preservatives despite what the manufacturers may say. Water-based treatments are fine for base coats or for fences, nothing else.

Some cabin manufacturers claim to offer a 10-year guarantee, even with the water-based treatment, however, like most things in life this is not as good as offer as it seems. There are strict conditions stating that if the building is not treated EVERY year then the guarantee would be null and void. Clearly this means that the treatment they are applying only last for ONE year and the further protection is coming from the treatment YOU are having to apply every year. Clearly a WORTHLESS guarantee. DON’T be fooled by them. The best thing (or worse) is that you will be very lucky to find any details of the conditions on those sites.

With the benefit of my 39 years in the garden cabins business, I hope that the above advice is useful for you to understand how to get the best out of your new garden shed or garden building. Over the years there have been many improvements and changes to the treatments available, some good and some bad, however, if you look after your cabin it will last many many years.
