Melbury Log Cabin Style & Appearance
The Forest Garden Melbury Cabin is an interesting contemporary designed cabin, manufactured using 44mm planed interlocking logs. This log cabin has a compact footprint, ideal for where garden space is at a premium. The Melbury cabin features double glazing with double doors, two fixed and one opening window.
Firstly the Melbury log cabin is 4.0 metres by 3.0 metres and is constructed using 44mm machined logs. The cabin is double glazed and fitted with one opening and two fixed windows. The two fixed windows are near full height and flank the double doors providing generous natural through the front of the cabin. The door is 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 timbers 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. Therefore please ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed and sawn timber where required
