Shire Cannock Wooden Log Cabin – Our first thoughts
Well, if you’re like us, you will appreciate the beauty here. This is a great looking log cabin with a dramatic overhang that really presents you with a distinctive looking building.
Little features become real benefits with this log cabin. One example is the excellent joinery made double door. Anyone who has seen a proper door made by a joiner will know just how pleasing to the eye and sturdy such a fixture can be. And with this particular door, you get solidity and a wonderful fit that tells you this is a robust building of quality. Unlike some doors, it doesn’t seem ‘bolted on’. It’s hard to explain, but it’s definitely a great aspect of the building.
Loglap cladding gives it that lovely cabin feel, and the presentation of real logs in the overall look. This makes a difference too, and other features, such as the toughened glass in the fixed window, add to the overall ‘log cabin’ feel.
Shire Cannock Wooden Log Cabin: Some questions you may have
What are the doors and windows like? Well we’ve mentioned the door already, but there are other aspects on the more practical side that really add to the value here. The windows and doors are draught-sealed, so you get plenty of protection in the rough weather, and the opening window is great for ventilation, especially during those hotter months.
Is it good in the rain? You have a lot to be thankful for here when it comes to water protection. For example, the large apex roof works very hard to quickly send rainwater away and to the ground. It actually works much better than ordinary roofs do, and it adds that little more protection against damp and rot.
Most impressively, the unit has pressure treated floor bearers. These bearers have had protective chemicals forced into them at the factory. These chemicals actively prevent water from entering the timber, and therefore protect the cabin from damp and rot. it’s incredibly effective.
These two aspects add to the reasons why the manufacturer is confident enough to give you a 10 year guarantee against damp and rot. As long as you follow the care instructions, you’re covered for a very long time.
Can I install it myself? You can install it yourself, but we are talking a very heavy building here, so if you have the possibility of getting help, we recommend you take advantage. You could of course arrange for a professional to help you, and this is a great way to get it up quicker.
Shire Cannock Wooden Log Cabin: So what’s the quality like?
Well, it’s very good. A sturdy and tough building, with the joinery door as one key example of the quality, this building should satisfy anyone who wants an installation that lasts. The toughened glass also adds up to a very strong and durable construction.
