FAQ

What building is suitable for what purpose ?
  • We offer various sizes of garden sheds and summer houses. The garden sheds will make perfect storage space for your garden tools or equipment for your pool. The log cabins can serve as an extension to your home, playroom for your children, or office so you can work at home, without being in your home. 
What are the different thicknesses of wall logs you offer ?
  • The thickness of the wall logs are as follows : 28mm, 34mm, 44mm, 68mm, double wall construction and construction with internal or external insulation. The more time you think spent inside your log cabin, the more we advise you to increase the thickness of the walls of your building, or to supplement with our insulation kits.
 Can I design my own building? Can I change an existing model ?

If you already have a clear idea, you can send us your plans for us to advise suitability. All models of buildings and wooden chalets are adaptable: you can choose the thickness of the planks, the location of doors, windows and even walls.
What is the quality of the products you offer?

What is the wood used to make your garden buildings?
  • We use pine or spruce from the forests of Northern and Central Europe sustainably managed in accordance with the slow growth of trees. Only the wood of the highest quality is selected. Once cut, the wood is dried in special buildings to 14% to 16% humidity.
  • We do not use laminated wood planks in the walls, only solid wood. We can offer hardwood floor and roof boards. On windows and doors  laminated construction is necessary to strengthen and avoid warping. We do not use OSB for our wooden sheds. 
Is it normal that some wall logs are not perfectly straight?
  • Wood is a natural product which varies depending on weather conditions (temperature, humidity, vapor in the air) and in terms of its exposure to these elements. It is likely to swell slightly during the winter months and contract during dry periods. Small cracks a few millimetres can also form. These dimensional changes are normal and predictable and does not affect the strength, stability and functionality of the product.
  • Before installation, we recommend that you keep your building kit in a location inaccessible to sunlight and rain. We recommend  the building is installed as quickly as possible after delivery (ideally within 48 hours of receipt).
 How long are your buildings guaranteed?
  • All our log cabins in the woods are guaranteed for 10 years. However, it must take care of every year, including the use of special treatments and paint. If you give them the care they need, our products will delight you for much longer (see the question "How well keep my wooden shed?").
 How are your cabins insulated?
  • The more time you expect to spend in your cabin the better levels of insulation are recommended. In the first instance, go for a thicker wall log, then consider additional insulation. The logs insulate against cold and heat, but you can add an external or internal insulation. We can also make your building double walls, leaving a space between them to place insulation. The roof can also be strengthened to further improve the insulation.
  • Note that the wood needs to breathe, so we recommend you choose STEICO insulation, excellent quality and suitable for wood construction.
  • For more information, and to discuss all of the insulation options that suit you, do not hesitate to contact us.
