Abberley Log Cabin Style & Appearance
The Abberley Log Cabin is 4 metres by 3 metres and forms part of the Forest Garden range. This is a traditional style of cabin, with double doors at the front flanked by large windows on each side. There are 2 further opening windows on the side of the cabin as well.
Firstly, the timber wall sections are made from 34mm machined logs. Both the floor and roof use 19mm tongue and groove (TGV) boards. A large overhang above the entrance doors provides shelter against rain and sun alike. The building is supplied with green rectangular roof shingles. The cabin is fitted with two opening windows which are double glazed. The doors are also double glazed and fitted with mortise locks.
Due to the need to minimise damp it is very important that the log cabin is placed on pressure treated bearers to ensure the timbers are not in ground contact. These bearers are included as part of the log cabin kit. More details are contained in the building assembly instructions, which can be downloaded 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. 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 finish you will find some low-priced finishes are for sawn timber only. Ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed and sawn timber if required
