Blakedown Log Cabin Style and Appearance
The Blakedown Log Cabin is part of the Forest garden range of log cabins. It has the appearance of a traditional log cabin and includes a 700mm covered area which provides some shelter from sun and rain alike. The building is divided into two, and therefore features two glazed double doors and a single privacy door to the front of the building
The Blakedown Log Cabin is the largest apex roof model in Forest Garden’s log cabin range. It’s footprint of 6 metres wide x 4 metres deep gives it a huge internal floor area of 21 square meters (228 square feet) which make it ideal for a multi-use building whether you need extra living space, a large office or plenty of room for recreational activities such as a home gym, workshop, hobby room or combination of these.
The traditional apex roof configuration offers a little more head room inside the cabin with the apex being 2.47 metres high (approx 2.5m inside). As well as the double glazed double doors, there are 3 additional 3/4 length windows on the front with tilt and turn opening mechanisms that allow them to be opened conventionally or tilted back with the top of the window open. There are two more additional tilt and turn windows with one in each side wall. The doors can be positioned on the left or right side of the front aspect as the cabin is built.
The walls are built using 45mm thick interlocking logs while the floor and roof are constructed from 19mm tongue and groove boards. All windows are double glazed with toughened glass.
Overall dimensions are 6.24 metres x 4.2 metres (20 x 14 feet) and roof features a useful 23cm overhang at the front and back and 20cm at the sides to give some shelter from rain. The internal floor dimensions of 5.7m x 3.7m give a total floor area of 21.2 m2 (228 square feet) which which makes this garden building a quick and cost-effective way of extending your living space significantly.
Cabin options and delivery details
Different roof felt options are available with this option being supplied with 24kg weight Polyester felt (without underlay). The felt has a polyester fibre base layer that makes it much stronger and more tear resistant than non-polyester grades. With more than twice the tear resistance of conventional mineral felt it has a life expectancy of up to 15 years when fitted correctly.
We recommend the small upgrade to Polyester felt with additional black sand felt underlay.
All deliveries are made by vehicles with a crane off-load facility and with an optional professional assembly service. The log cabin must be built upon a solid and level surface such as a poured concrete base.

Supplied Finish and Painting
All the timber in this Log Cabin has been kiln dried to minimise warping and splitting. The floor bearers are pressure treated with an Osmose timber preservative because they will be in contact with the ground. The rest of the structure is supplied untreated. Consequently this allows the customer to choose their preferred brand and colour of timber preservative. We stock Osmo, Liberon and Ronseal products to treat products accordingly. When selecting your timber finish you will find some low priced finishes are for sawn timber only. Finally ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed and sawn timber if required.
