Ripon Log Cabin Style & Appearance
Firstly, the Ripon Log Cabin is part of the Forest Garden range of log cabins. This cabin is best described as a “corner” log with the doors and windows arranged on two sides. This layout makes the cabin ideal for a corner location. This flexibility is furthered by the fact that another cabin, the Pickering, is a mirror image of this Ripon log cabin.
The timber wall sections are made from 34mm machined logs. Both the floor and roof use 19mm tongue and groove (TGV) boards. The building is supplied with green/grey flecked rectangular felt shingles for the roof. The cabin is fitted with two opening windows, both of which are double glazed. The doors are also double glazed and fitted with mortise lock.
The cabin also features an integral storage area, part of the main structure but only accessed from an external door. The mortise locking door to the storage area is fully boarded for security.
Due to the need to prevent damp it is vitally important that the log cabin is placed on pressure treated bearers to ensure the cabin 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
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.

Finally, all these Log cabins are delivered free from their Worcestershire Warehouse, or haulier’s depots direct to the customer’s address. Therefore no Forest Garden Log Cabins are available for collection from our Devon premises. Forest Garden Code: VRIP344028SHHD
