The walls of the log cabin are 44mm thick made from high grade, responsibly sourced, Scandinavian Timber. No inferior log cabin timber profiles are used whatsoever (such as lower quality 19mm and 28mm thick log cabins, or cabins built with OSB or chipboard floors and roofs). The floor and roofs are comprised of tongue & groove boards to ensure the log cabin is robust and durable. Tanalised timber bearers are provided to lift the log cabin off the ground to further protect the floor.
The roof of this log cabins is designed to protect the building from all kinds of weather. It has an innovative EPDM rubber roofing system which comes with a 50-year life expectancy. This includes a gutter edge drip plate to allow rainwater to run off and away from the sides of the log cabin… ideal for the various UK weather conditions and climate.
All cabins are under 2.5m to the ridge, allowing you to bypass most planning permission restrictions that may apply to residential builds. There are extra deep 145mm roof purlins to ensure the strength and rigidity aren’t compromised by the reduced height.
Attractive features such as the external sills are on all windows, and the ‘easy access’ aluminium low threshold sills on the doors add to the functionality of your building, as well as the aesthetic. Further attention to detail is reflected in the Burford style skirting which provides the perfect finish to the inside of the log cabin.
Flexible Door and Window Layout
Each Power® Log Cabin can be supplied with a choice of door & window layouts, enabling you to design the perfect door/wall/window setup for you. During assembly, the gable window can be positioned towards the front or the back of the cabin, or on either end. Here are a few layout options:
Power Log Cabins have pressure-treated ground contact bearers below the floor, however the main cabin is supplied untreated. You will receive a FREE 5L container of Protek Wood Preserver ++ to get you started with preserving the log cabin.
