Rushock Log Cabin Style & Appearance
The Forest Rushock Log Cabin is one of the larger models in the Forest Garden range of log cabins. Contemporary in appearance this 5.0 x 4.0 metre long cabin has an apex roof and uses 45mm logs. Both the doors and all windows are double glazed
The size and specification of the Forest Rushock Log Cabin make this mid-large size model perfect for a wide range of uses. The apex roof design of this model is a more traditional alternative to pent roof designs and offers a little more head room in the centre of the cabin where the apex height is 2.47 metres. This substantial log cabin has a footprint 5m wide x 4m deep and uses 45mm thick interlocking logs for the walls and 19mm tongue and groove boards for the floor and roof. The Forest Blakedown Log Cabin is similar in size if you want an alternative cabin.
Double glazed double doors at the front have a tilt and turn double glazed window on either side with two more 3/4 length double glazed tilt and turn side windows (one either side) so plenty of natural light can get in. All windows are double glazed with toughened glass.
The Rushock’s overall dimensions are 5.24 metres wide x 4.34 metres deep (17 x 14 feet) while 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. This impressive size and specification makes the Rushock 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 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
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.
