Forest Elmley Log Cabin Style and Appearance
The Elmley Log Cabin is one of the larger models in the Forest Garden range of log cabins. Contemporary in appearance this 5 x 3 metre log cabin has a mono-pitch roof and uses 45mm logs. Both the doors and all windows are double glazed.
The Forest Elmley is a mid sized Log Cabin with a 5m wide x 3m deep footprint and contemporary pent roof design. It’s impressive specification includes 45mm thick interlocking log walls, 19mm tongue and groove floor and roof, double glazed double doors, two tilt and turn double glazed windows to the front and a 3/4 length double glazed tilt and turn side window that can be positioned in the left or right wall. All windows are double glazed with toughened glass.
Overall dimensions are 5.24 meters x 3.36 metres (17 x 11 feet) and the front of the roof features a 36cm overhang for weather protection. The internal floor dimensions of 4.7m x 2.7m give a total floor area of 12.77 m? (137 square feet) which is a substantial room space big enough for lots of uses such as a as multi desk office, office and lounge, lounge/diner, hobby/games room or gym. With plenty of windows to allow natural light in this makes the Elmley log cabin a very usable and versatile extension to your living space.
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 & 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. Consequently the rest of the structure is supplied untreated 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 you will find some low priced finishes are for sawn timber only. Therefore, ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed and sawn timber where required

The Log Cabins are delivered to kerbside and in flat pack format for the customer to assemble. All buildings are supplied with detailed Assembly Instructions which can be downloaded from this page in PDF format. Forest Garden also offer a home assembly service on all log cabins. Their nationwide service is conducted by trained Forest installation teams at an agreed time. Look out for the assembly rates for each building. However, their service is assembly only and does not include laying bases, dismantling or disposal of existing buildings.
Finally, all these Log cabins are delivered free from their Worcestershire Warehouse, or haulier’s depots direct to the customer’s preferred UK Mainland address. Therefore no Forest Garden Log Cabins are available for collection from our Devon premises.
