This log cabin installation features a Talo log cabin from finnforest. The delivery service from finnforest is excellent,, the cabin itself is well made and comes with high quality fittings. Tilt and turn windows are double glazed and even the store has a double glazed window with weather strip seals on both the windows and the doors.
Access on this job was paticularly tricky with everything having to go through the house. It was with this is mind that we chose to go for paving slabs laid evenly across the footprint of the log cabin. They require less concrete mix but being substantial 600mm square slabs they provide good support on an already compacted site.
We hired a whacker plate to compact the site then started the process of laying the slabs starting with the highest point and working around the base with each subsequent slab checking for level each time.
The results are here for you to see. Click a picture to see an enlarged image.
The cabin was due for delivery Friday morning and was there before 9a.m. so when we arrived we were able to start work straight away. There was the small matter of lifting all the timber through the house including 10 or so steps at the front door!
Day two complete and we had the tongue and groove on the roof.
Day three was for floors, skirting, bitumen tiles, finishing trim and door adjustment and lock fitting. The french doors can be adjusted for alignment with an allen key in three different planes. Locks and window fittings are of the highest standard.
And here you see the results.
