Cheviot Log Cabin Style & Appearance
The Cheviot Log Cabin is part of the Forest garden range of log cabins and has a contemporary appearance. This large 5.5 metre long cabin is striking for its eight windows and two glazed doors. Both the doors and all the windows are double glazed
Firstly the timber wall sections are made from 44mm machined logs. The cabin is a generous 5.5 metres long and 4 metres deep making it suitable for a wide range of uses – office/study, summerhouse or gym area. The double doors are flanked by two windows on each side, they are double glazed and secured with mortise locks. In total the Cheviot Log Cabin boats eight windows all of which are double glazed.
The floor uses 28mm tongue and groove boards while the roof uses 19mm tongue and groove (TGV) boards. The building is supplied with green felt shingles for the apex style roof. Finally 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.

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 you will probably find some low priced finishes are for sawn timber only. SO please ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed and sawn timber if required
