Optional features
Roof covering set

As standard, this log cabin is supplied without any roof cover. We always recommend using roof underlayment and shingles for this roof type. We offer sets in different colors: dark grey, dark red, dark green, and brown.

Wind beams for enhanced wind resistance

Wood expands as the humidity increases. This means you need to give the wood a little space. Screws or nails should not be used when building a log cabin. Therefore we offer wind beams that allow natural movement of wood thus providing extra wind resistance and stability.


This cabin is supplied untreated, we recommend that the building is treated with high quality paints and treatments. Here is our suggestion for high quality eco-paint – Eco-paint set (inluding paint, brushes, clothing for painting XL, gloves).

Full set of ground screws for foundation

A solid base prolongs the lifespan of cabin. We recommend using screw piles as they are cost-effective and quicker to establish than concrete footings or blockwork. Easy to install, able to be fitted in any ground type, the screws can help overcome uneven surfaces.

20 mm tongue and groove wooden flooring

Log cabins have floor as an option as the choice depends on the purpuse on how the log cabin will be used. We offer wooden floor as option.
