FAQs about Log Cabins, Log Homes, Car Garages, Modern Garden Offices and Other Timber Structures

Dropshipping

Everything you need to know about our dropship system.

Do you contact our customer?

Yes. Once the order is received we then contact your customer to let them know about the estimated delivery date and time. We give a 3 days’ notice to all the customers. We will also contact you once we have agreed a day and time of delivery with the final customer.

Do you deliver directly to our customer?

Yes, we deliver to your customer’s address. On your purchasing order you need to add the following details: customer’s first name and last name, delivery address, postcode, landline or mobile number and their email address.

What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock or handle them, but instead transfers the customer orders and delivery details to the wholesaler, who then delivers the goods directly to the customer. As with any other business, the profit made is the difference between the wholesale and retail price or it can be an agreed percentage of the sale price.

Log Cabins

FAQs about our range of log cabins.

Bearers of the log cabin

Our log cabins come with pressure treated bearers. These are 70 mm in height and with a maximum distance between each bearer being 700 mm. This applies to all our log cabin designs.

Do I need planning permission?

It depends on what they are using your log cabin for, where they wish to locate it and where they live. Before purchasing a log cabin, we highly recommend that customer contact their local authority to discuss how the regulations apply to their home.

Do you do bespoke log cabins?

Yes, we offer a custom design service for bespoke log cabins with areas bigger than 25sq m. All you have to do is to send us some hand drawings which we will use to put together a price quotation. If you are satisfied with the quotation we can move forward.

The next step is to use the hand drawings to create detailed 3D images of the building. We send these to you so that you can forward them to your final customer. Once any design adjustments have been made and the final design is agreed and the plans signed off, we will send you the proforma invoice. At this point we will begin the manufacture your log cabin.

The minimum area of the building has to be 25 sq m, and the walls thicker than 43 mm. Please note that all our bespoke log cabins are supplied, as standard, with our windows and doors. We cannot alter their size or features.

Do you offer fully pressure treated log cabins?

Yes we do. We have increased our production capacity of pressure treated timber and are now able to supply fully impregnated log cabins. Please note, however, that due to technical reasons, windows and doors cannot be fully pressure treated, but we will impregnate them with a similar colour.

Floor boards

Unlike the cheaper versions available on the market, our log cabin kits will include floor boards as well. As standard, we supply the 19 mm thickness tongue & groove floor boards. As an optional extra, we can increase the thickness of the floor boards from 19 mm to 28 mm.

Is the log cabin flat packed and how you will deliver it?

Yes. All log cabins are delivered for self-assembly in flat packs. Each individual piece is cut to the log cabin measurement e.g. 3m long. You will need some basic tools such as a hammer and screwdriver, and another person to help you unload and assemble the log cabin.

We deliver our log cabins using crane equipped vehicles, which means that your customer doesn’t need to have 2-3 other people on site to help them offload by hand. We do this for safety reasons first of all, and then because we want to offer a smooth service from start to finish. Our job is not done, until the final customer is happy!

What base does the log cabin need to built on?

The log cabin will require a flat, stable area to be built upon and it should be large enough to fit the cabin on to. Materials such as concrete, paving flags or decking would be a suitable for the base.
