Overall excellent quality addition to the garden

Really pleased with our new log cabin. Delivery was due 9.00am in the morning and arrived at 3pm, by an unhelpful driver who didn't really put it close enough to the garage as requested, so we had to park our cars in the road and where they would fit on the drive. I had also taken the morning off work. The quality of build is excellent, instructions clear, helpful and conscise. The roof timbers were a little on the flimsy side though. Overall, would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. It will be a great gym as very solid build. Please oh please get it dipped in treatment before it leaves the factory. The painting of preservative treatment etc, has been an horrendous and expensive job. I would have paid a bit more for the cabin if it had been already done.

Very Good Home Gym

Really excellent quality, large enough for my rowing machine and various other kit. This cabin is very light inside, the smell of fresh timber is invigorating and I'll be spending many happy hours in here getting into shape.

Stephen Kyffin Asked:

What specification base for this product is required? Can the base be 4m x 3m or does it have to be slightly bigger? What depth for hardcore and what depth for concrete? What gap is required near fence panels etc.?Are there potential gaps for adding electrics or do you need to drill into the wood?

We Replied:

Dear Stephen Thank you for your question. We suggest building the base 4m x 3m for the Melbury. For a concrete base it must sit on a good compacted layer of hardcore and then the concrete must be poured to a minimum depth of 100mm. We do suggest if a concrete slab is poured, a damp membrane is positioned under the concrete. A layer of sand will need to cover the hardcore to prevent any puncturing of the damp membrane when the concrete is poured. This will prevent damp soaking up into the slab. Alternatively concrete slabs can be used. Preparation for the slab base must include a good layer of compacted hardcore, a dressing of sharp sand over this, and the slabs must be cemented into place using either wet or dry mix. It is critical in either system that the base does not run out of level by more than 10mm end to end, it is square, solid with no possibility of slump or movement. It is up to you how close the cabin is installed next to fence panels etc. we would recommend leaving a gap big enough for someone to fit between though. In order to install electrics you would need to drill into the wood, we would always recommend getting a professional in to do any type of electrical works. I hope this helps. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
