We’ve just finished a lovely log cabin garden room in Tiverton in Mid Devon, for a young family. Dad is excited to have the outbuild he always wanted, Mum is chuffed to bits to see the old shed replaced, their son thinks it should be on the next Shed of the Year competition and the dog . . . . . . . well she clearly loves it too!!
This project is 3.3m wide and 2.4m deep. It’s got 70mm thick wall logs with 18mm tongue and groove floor boards. The only access to the property to the garden was through the house so the very though of a concrete base was a no go from the start. We installed our favoured option which is a timber subframe on plastic anti rot posts. This gives a perfectly flat base to construct from. Thanks to a couple of beautiful Spring days install progress was quick. We’ve insulted the floor and roof and as with all pent roof log cabins we installed a rubber membrane for the roof covering. This gets applied in one complete sheet so unlike roofing felt there are no overlaps and potential for water to ingress.
The clear weather is set to continue and our client is hopeful to be able to start to paint the building in Sadolin Superdec.
