Alderley Log Cabin Style & Appearance
The Alderley is a contemporary styled log cabin with two virtually full-length windows and glazed double doors on the cabin front. Appearance is very similar to that of the Cheviot with a dormer feature above the double doors.
Firstly, the Alderley log cabin is a useful 4 metres by 3 metres and is constructed using 34mm manufactured logs. These are smooth planed logs which are machined into a six-sided profile to improve protection against UK weather conditions.
The cabin is fitted with two fixed and one opening windows all of which are double glazed. Both doors are double glazed and fitted with a mortise lock. Because these glazed panels are situated towards the front of the Cabin it has most available light in this part of the building.
Both the cabin floor and roof are constructed with 19mm tongue and groove (TGV) boards. The building is supplied with rectangular green felt roof shingles.
It is vitally important that the log cabin is placed on pressure treated bearers to ensure the timbers are not in ground contact. These timbers are included as part of the log cabin kit.
