Designed to offer you the best of both worlds, the Ella 6×3.2m Log Cabin combines 8.7m2 of indoor and 8.2m2 of outdoor sheltered space, offering you a multitude of possibilities when deciding how to use this charming living space. The main cabin can house a garden office or family room while the outer space can provide shelter for bikes, barbecues and a range of equipment. Perhaps you’ll add garden furniture to create a relaxing patio area. Beautifully constructed from thick 28mm Nordic Spruce interlocking logs, this solid and hardwearing cabin boasts an authentic chalet style build with chamfered log ends, supported by wind braces.

The floor and roof are 19mm tongue and groove, well-known for its strength, durability and weather resistant qualities, providing a long lasting and reliable cabin. The cabin section of this garden building has glazed double doors, fitted with safety glass and complete with key-operated cylinder lock for security. For increased strength and improved resistance to adverse reactions to extreme temperatures, such as warping or cracking, the door frames are laminated in construction. A low doorsill features a stainless steel cover to protect wood from damage in this high wear area. Please be advised that the roof does not include a cover as standard. Select from SBS, EPDM or Roof Felt Underlay as an optional upgrade.

(SBS weatherproof roof covering is a thick, torch-on felt with an exceptionally long lifespan and outstanding weatherproof qualities. Unless you possess advanced DIY skills, we recommend hiring a professional installer. Long-lasting EPDM weatherproof roof covering is a robust, reliable, watertight rubber cover. Fixings and adhesives are not supplied. Unless you possess advanced DIY skills, we recommend using a professional installer. Roof Underlay Felt is simple to nail on to the garden building but is only designed as a temporary solution until you have added a permanent weatherproof roof cover upgrade.) The cabin is supplied untreated.

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
