Mendip Log Cabin Style & Appearance
The Mendip Log Cabin is one of the largest models in the Forest Garden range of log cabins. Contemporary in appearance this 5.0 x 4.0 metre long cabin has a mono-pitch roof and uses 44mm logs. Both the doors and all windows are double glazed
Firstly, the Mendip timber wall sections are made from 44mm machined logs. The cabin is a generous size making it suitable for a wide range of uses – office/study, summerhouse or gym area. The double doors are flanked by a window on each side, they are double glazed and secured with mortise locks. In total the Mendip Log Cabin boats eight windows all of which are double glazed. The floor uses 28mm tongue and groove boards. For the roof this cabin uses 19mm tongue and groove (TGV) boards.
The building is supplied with green felt shingles for the apex style roof. Due to damp 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 in the building assembly instructions, downloadable 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. 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
Delivery & Assembly
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.
From February 2020 these Cabins are being replaced, stock is therefore subject to availability
