The Blakedown Log Cabin is the largest apex roof model in Forest Garden’s log cabin range. It’s footprint of 6 metres wide x 4 metres deep gives it a huge internal floor area of 21 square meters (228 square feet) which make it ideal for a multi-use building whether you need extra living space, a large office or plenty of room for recreational activities such as a home gym, workshop, hobby room or combination of these.The traditional apex roof configuration offers a little more head room inside the cabin with the apex being 2.47 metres high (approx 2.5m inside).

As well as the double glazed double doors, there are 3 additional 3/4 length windows on the front with tilt and turn opening mechanisms that allow them to be opened conventionally or tilted back with the top of the window open. There are two more additional tilt and turn windows with one in each side wall. The doors can be positioned on the left or right side of the front aspect as the cabin is built.The walls are built using 45mm thick interlocking logs while the floor and roof are constructed from 19mm tongue and groove boards.

All windows are double glazed with toughened glass.Overall dimensions are 6.24 metres x 4.2 metres (20 x 14 feet) and roof features a useful 23cm overhang at the front and back and 20cm at the sides to give some shelter from rain. The internal floor dimensions of 5.7m x 3.7m give a total floor area of 21.2 m? (228 square feet) which which makes this garden building a quick and cost-effective way of extending your living space significantly.Different roof felt options are available with this option being supplied with 24kg weight Polyester felt (without underlay). The felt has a polyester fibre base layer that makes it much stronger and more tear resistant than non-polyester grades.

1. Untreated: Any wooden structure that is left untreated will have its lifespan dramatically shortened. This is especially the case with Douglas fir or European softwoods such as Whitewood (spruce) or Redwood (Pine), most garden buildings sold in the UK are made from such wood.

The Wood Protection Association says that “the risk of attack increases significantly if the moisture content of wood, for any reason, rises above 20%” they also talk about how more lower durability cuts of wood (known as sapwood) are getting used to build with than in years gone by. They also say that “sapwood on the other hand is a source of food for many species of fungi and insects and is always vulnerable to attack.” This risk is particularly prevalent with European softwoods.

The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) and BS EN 350:2016 (this advises on methods for determining and classifying the durability of wood and wood-based materials against biological wood-destroying agents) says the natural durability class of such European softwoods is between 3 and 5. With class 3 listed as moderately durable, class 4 listed as slightly durable and class 5 listed as not durable. All three classes have a service life of less than 15 years in a frequently wet environment (such as a UK garden). Yet the application of a preservative treatment or modification of lower durability species is designed according to BS8605 part1 (this is the British standards specifications for external timber cladding) to extend service life to 15/30 years or more.

Having a wooden garden structure supplied as untreated is relatively rare. The vast majority of wooden buildings are supplied with some form of basic treatment, usually a short term water based dip treatment. If you buy an untreated wooden building/structure then we strongly advise that you treat it annually with a solvent-based wood treatment. For full penetration it requires 2-3 coats. It is also recommended that you treat the inside of the structure as well.

If you are wanting something that will require much less maintenance throughout the products life cycle then we would strongly suggest looking at something that is pressure treated also known as tanalised timber.

By correctly treating timber you can take a sub 15 year service life for a not very durable European softwood and extend its service life to 15/30 years or more according to the Timber Decking and Cladding Association

2. FSC Certified Timber: The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation that is “dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.” When you see the FSC certification it means the forest where this wood was sourced from is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity, while ensuring it sustains economic viability. FSC-certified forests are managed to strict environmental, social and economic standards. FSC certified timber is comparable to Certified Timber
