The Mendip Log Cabin is part of the Forest Garden 2020 range of log cabins. Contemporary in appearance this 5.0 x 4.0 metre long cabin has a mono-pitch roof and uses 45mm logs. Both the doors and all windows are double glazed
Forest Garden’s Mendip Log Cabin is a mid sized garden building with a footprint 5m wide x 4m deep. It’s modern and unfussy pent roof design is complemented by a high specification which 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.
The Forest Mendip has overall dimensions of 5.24 metres wide x 4.66 metres deep (17 x 15 feet) and the front of the roof features a useful 60cm overhang for weather protection. The internal floor dimensions of 4.7m x 3.7m give a total floor area of 17.5 m? (188 square feet) which is big enough to have a generous home office and lounge or lounge and dining area or a great leisure room for gaming, TV and hobbies.
With plenty of windows to allow natural light in this makes the Mendip log cabin a very usable and versatile extension to your living space. The internal depth of 3.7m and width of 4.7m give lots of wall space for shelving, cupboards or other furniture.
Different roof felt options are available with this option being supplied with 24kg weight Polyester felt and black sand felt 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.
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 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
