Chiltern Log Cabin Style and Appearance
The Chiltern is a contemporary log cabin that could be used for a home office, summerhouse or dining area when the weather isn’t good enough for alfresco. The cabin specification is good, the log cabin is fully glazed throughout and equipped with two large tilt and turn opening windows.
Firstly, the Chiltern log cabin is a generous 4 metres by 3 metres and is constructed using 34mm machined logs. The cabin is fitted with two tilt and turn opening windows. These windows are double glazed. Both doors are double glazed and fitted with a mortise lock.
Both the cabin’s floor and roof are constructed using 19mm tongue and groove (TGV) boards. The building’s roof is supplied with rectangular green felt 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 bearers are included as part of the log cabin kit. More details are contained in the building assembly instructions, which can be downloaded as a pdf from this page.

Supplied Finish & Painting
All the timber in this Log Cabin has been kiln dried to minimise warping and splitting. The floor bearers are also pressure treated with an Osmose timber preservative. The rest of the structure is supplied untreated therefore allowing the customer to choose their preferred brand and colours. We stock Osmo, Liberon and Ronseal products to treat products accordingly. When selecting your timber treatment finish you will find some low-priced finishes are for sawn timber only. Ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed and sawn timber if required
