Forest Garden Melbury Cabin Construction
The Melbury Log Cabin from Forest is big enough to offer several different uses despite having a relatively small footprint. With a 4m x 3m footprint returning 10 square metres (108 square feet) of internal floor space this model is big enough to be used as a two-desk office, a generous hobby room or gym. When required for relaxation it could even accommodate a sofa suite and TV table or a dining table and chairs. Its pent roof design is unobtrusive, stylish and gives it a modern look.
The specification of the Melbury includes 34mm machined, interlocking logs for the walls, 19mm Tongue & Groove boards for the roof and floor. There is a choice of single or double glazed toughened glass window and doors. The glazed doors, fixed front windows and double side window provide plenty of natural light. The opening side window can be built into either side of the cabin. Different felt roof options are also available.
This model option is double glazed all round with 24kg or 34kg weight Polyester felted roof. Both options have a roof 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 three times the tear resistance of conventional mineral felt it has a life expectancy of up to 20 – 30 years when fitted correctly.
With the flexibility this garden building offers and the specification options available it’s easy to see why the Melbury is one of Forest’s most popular models.
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. 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/or sawn timber where required
