Quick and easy to put up. Instructions not great and you have to work out how to position the shed. We had to modify as it was 3/4 built when we realised the clearances required for back of cabin and door. It would not fit ALL cabins as claimed.

Information on profiled wall footings is incorrect meaning it only just fitted my slab. Had I not allowed a little extra it would have been a disaster.

Great addition to my existing log cabin

Nice shed to compliment a cabin. It’s a bit low for taller people but ok if you are around 5’8”. Perhaps consider putting foam on the internal beam at head height to protect your head.

Good quality product and well made. Unfortunately it does not fit under the roof line on a Karen log cabin so had to modify to butt up to the facia board on the side. Wasn’t too much of a problem. Just have to make a couple of panels to fill the space between the top of the annexe and the under side of the Karen roof. Would have been good to know this before I started but still pleased with it.

A very well thought out kit which went together without a hitch. The instructions supplied were a bit sparse, but answers were found after ferreting around the very comprehensive web-site. There is rather a large sill to step over for the doorway, so I have removed that ( I removed the door anyway). Hope it doesn't cause any problems with the rigidity of the structure!

Excellent lean-to with a decent door (not always the case with other similar products). Given decent planning, very simple to erect. Check carefully the heights so that it fits under your existing roof!

Outstanding product, directions for construction first class. Have recommended the company to numerous friends who have also purchase one and we are very satisfied.

We have been extremely impressed with the annexe. It arrived on the day Tuin's said it would and the packaging, was great so no damaged wooden panels. It was easy to assemble and fits perfectly onto the side of our cabin that we also bought from Tuin.
I would, and already have recommended Tuins to friends and family.

Highly recommended as a great storage solution and the same quality kit as the Stig Cabin I attached it to. As another reviewer highlights, a little modification Is required at roof height and to attaché guttering, but overall really pleased with quality and look of the finished shed

My second purchase of a log cabin product and my first from Tuin.
Excellent service, all correspondence phone calls were on time and as expected. Delivery was spot on and very efficient.
Quality of product outstanding.

Overall this provides a fantastic storage solution if you're using your log cabin for something more interesting. The ceiling is a little low, but fine if you're 5'9" or under like me. I attached mine to an Aiste, and the construction is an easy 1-man job after tackling the main cabin. However, I do have a few gripes which may help future buyers. Most importantly THE DIMENSIONS PROVIDED ARE WRONG. The 150 cm wide footprint does not take into account the depth of the U-channel wall plates which attach to the main cabin and add a further 3cm. You'll actually need the base to be a minimum of 153 cm wide. I discovered this too late sadly. It was a bit annoying that the U-channel wall plates don't come slotted so you have to figure that out yourself. I created some decent slots with an 8 mm drill bit and a jigsaw, but really the slot should also be countersunk to prevent the screw heads snagging on the ends of the storage annex logs. A notched slot was beyond my skills & tooling, and should really be done by the manufacturer. There is no edge finishing on the roof as illustrated on the CGI image. This means you can't attach guttering (unless you're prepared to screw into the end-grain of the roof boards), so I had to fashion something myself from packing wood. Finally there doesn't seem to be a prescribed solution for flashing the annex roof into the side of the main cabin. This is quite an oversight because it's complicated by the need to account for differential movement of cabin vs. annex.

I bought the storage annexe to free up the garage from garden furniture and equipment etc. We've had a Daisy cabin for a few years now and it's fantastic, so a little brother adding onto the side was decided on! The annexe arrived as planned and I'd had plenty of time to build the "raised timber frame" (this has to be almost perfect regarding angles and levels) My wife assisted for a time and in just a couple of days, the building was up, pesticide treated, oiled and shingled. Good solid door with quality lock is a real bonus and it looks great. I can't recommend it enough. Thanks Tuin!

Took a while for delivery due to holdups after the first covid lockdown. I may have measured wrong, or the height wasn't as advertised as I had to trim the top boards so it would find beneath the old summer house. Instructions that come with it are awful but there's some good videos online to help you assemble it. (all fairly easy for any mediocre DiYer). Really do recommend waiting for a dry day before attempting the build though. The base needs cutting to size which took quite a while and the roof took a while too. Now it's finished, it looks fantastic, blends in perfectly with the existing summer house. Very pleased.

Good addition to Wayne cabin nice and solid , only downside is that it is too small and low for anyone even medium height, so feels a lot of money for what it actually from gives space wise

This came with our Aiste Log cabin which we fitted to the side, no problem to assemble. This has been up for 3 months and as stated wood is a natural product and will move while drying out, as the storage annex is made out of 28 mm wood this has moved more than the Aiste cabin, the main shrinkage is on the short planks which did dry out to leave a gap between planks, this was soon sorted out by just adjusting the short planks to reduce the gap as it dries . Pleased with both of these products from Tuin with their delivery service and the way these product have been made.

Very happy with this addition to our shed. Well constructed but instructions are not the best. Simply to put together though and very happy with our purchase.

We bought this annexe to go on the side of our Daisy cabin I built last year.

Just like the Daisy cabin from ordering to install was a pure pleasure. Great service from Tuin with the product, I couldn’t fit the thicker log Annexe in the space so went for this one at 28mm. I need not have been concerned it’s a great product and plenty thick enough for a storage area for us.

I’ve insulated the floor and roof with 50mm celotex with some 11mm OSB over that before the shingles were added.

It’s poured of rain here in Scotland since I built it and it’s perfect in every way.

Again top notch from Tuin, I’m once again impressed.

Well done Tuin 5* from me.

This annex was added to a 3.5 x 2.5 40mm Daisy log cabin, and was a great addition... (28mm logs) easy to build in half a day.. I'm 6'4 so there is limited headroom... with the roof joist... but a nice large area to store all the things i dont need every day. good quality lock is included too...and a good strong door.
The instructions regarding the roof join was scant.. but having built the Daisy I used initiative, and some sealer to obtain a watertight finish. 10/10

The cabin is an excellent addition to our existing Viktor Log cabin. We needed somewhere to put 5 bikes and this is absolutely perfect and very well priced. I easily put it up including the roofing on my own in a day. Well designed and excellent quality. A very happy customer.

I bought this to go along side the Klair cabin I bought (which I also reviewed but it is no where to be seen). Overall I'm happy but I have the same moans as I had with my cabin. Lots of split boards. Lots. One length of the profiled foundation beams I bought was so warped and twisted I couldn't use it. Luckily I kept the offcuts I had from the cabin. Also the door parts. They are NOT quality. All that being said it went up in a day. It's painted. Shingles are on (they are the best, I will never use felt again). It looks great. As I said last time the price fitted my wallet. For all my moans I would buy from this company again.

The 28mm Log Cabin Storage Annex was an ideal addition to my Yorick Log Cabin. It has been converted to use as an ensuite for the cabin. The floor and ceiling have insulated with 50 mm celotex insulation and plumbing, power and drainage installed. To add additional interior roof height an additional layer of logs was added. A side window was also installed to let natural light in. The quality of the annex is excellent and with the insulation and door seals it is plenty warm enough for winter use with just the electric towel radiator as a heat source. On the whole the I am extremely impressed with the annex and it has enabled to have a very nice additional shower room for a very competitive price, and extended the use of my Yorick log cabin to have the potential as guest accommodation. Friends and neighbours are equally impressed.

I bought this little annex cabin to go on the back of a Leeds cabin, perfect for fitting in the lawn mower and all of those garden essentials that you have to have, but would like hidden away. Solid construction and easy to build......especially after having constructed the Leeds cabin!!

We purchased the 28mm Log Cabin Storage Annexe to sit alongside the Daisy cabin and we are absolutely thrilled with both.

The storage annexe houses our two bikes and a range of garden and DIY paraphernalia.

100% happy with this product.

Very good quality, supplied on time, excellent tech support. However, beware the door is not easily reversible to enable annexe to be fitted on LHS of your cabin.

Excellent service from Tuin regarding delivery, help and advice. The cabin annexe looks excellent now we have completed and painted it.
My one criticism is that the quality of some of the components were not up to the standard of the Chloe cabin we purchased last year.

Perfect addition to my Jos Corner Cabin.

Having recently completed building the Flow log cabin, to which this was to attach, it was quite straight forward. The logs are nicely machines and fit together with the occasional tap from a large mallet. Some logs had become warped which requied a long tool to give a twist back in the right direction. Like the bigger log cabin, the base set up was the most lengthy job. The whole project was completed in an afternoon without rushing. The door and frame come as a complete assembly which may require some assistance to fit. I foolishly assumed it was constructed like the main log cabin door and didn't worry when I found I'd fitted it upside down. This turned out to be a problem as unlike the log cabin, the shed door frame is nailed together and not screwed making my job a little more complex than it needed to be. However, once the door was correctly oriented, I replaced tge nails for screws and it was job done. Like the cabin, the floor is a little more time consuming as the planks need cutting to size but it looks good, has plenty of space inside for my needs and once painted, should last a life time. Would I recommend this product. Yes, it nicely matched the larger log cabin and was well manufactured. Thanks Tuin!

Having thought long and hard about investing in this to go alongside my Karen cabin I was a bit disappointed. The 28mm don't quite compare to the thicker logs used in Karen and are less compact and less sturdy, especially the fixtures attaching it to the main cabin. Despite following plan the overall height was wrong and didn't quite fit under the log cabin roof like it should which is compromising the sleek look I was after a bit. Luckily Tuin were quite good and accommodating in their response which has made up for the shortfall in quality. (Overall still happy with Tuin and can definitely recommend them, just not so much this particular product)
Tuin reply: Thank you for your review, we are sorry this 28mm annexe did not meet your expectations when added to your 40mm Karen Log Cabin. We do though offer the thicker annexe if required: https://www.tuin.co.uk/45mm-Log-Cabin-Storage-Annexe.html

We bought this as an extension to our Daisy Log Cabin. Very easy to assemble and looks perfect sitting next to our cabin.

Straight forward construction and flexible to position the door where I wanted after a few cuts with the saw. Good locks and plenty of shingles, nails and fixings.

Happy with this purchase. When laying a base for the annex ideally you need to allow the annex to sit inside the overlapping logs of the cabin. This means it needs to be indented by 25cm from the edge. However I got round this by cutting the rail adjacent to the cabin. This was not clear in the preparation of the site before the delivery.

Good quality and easily constructed however I had to modify the door as the way I wanted to install was unable to have it opening outwards - an improvement would be universal frame so the customer can decide on the way the door opens. Overall very pleased with the product, way better quality then we could find elsewhere for comparable price

Delivery on time and trouble free - right to the door.
Not enough detail instructions but working from the website pictures of the Annexe cabin the assembly was fairly straightforward. One issue is the limited height of annex door and interior - which was partially improved by not installing a raised floor - but a one extra level of beams would be a better option. These minor issues aside delivery and quality were as expected, very good.

The cabin is from Tuin, and therefore, as expected, it is great quality. I had 2 problems really. Firstly, it is quite low and therefore, although I ordered the flooring, I did not fit it because at only 5'8", I would not have been able to stand upright inside. Secondly, The facia in the front and back has a very sharp end and as it is low, I already hurt my head twice before I sawed the edges off. I hope the manufacturer change that.

As much as I was happy with my Karen cabin I was equally disappointed with my annexe. Starting with no instructions as how to put it together, then there was the amount of logs with splits in them which you had to work out first so as you made sure you had mainly good ones on top of them to give weight to ,shut the cracks. Then there was the fact that it should fit any cabin but actually in my case with the Karen cabin I would have to have built the annexe before having put on my cabin roof because I could not get enough access to fit the roof shingles properly. I had to settle for glueing the last 2 or 3 rows and sliding them in. Also the last roof boards had to be slid in and drilled and screwed from inside the annexe. The whole door set up seems very flimsy and not thought through properly.
However after all that it is up and actually looks the part and has been well admired .I just feel let down after the elation that was the quality of the cabin. I just hope my roof shingles make it through the winter .

After purchasing a log cabin, which looks lovely, just wanted abit of extra room for bikes scooter etc. Saw this on the tuin site and thought it would be perfect.
Was delivered the week I requested and the delivery driver was very helpful and lovely.
Can't wait for it to be erected, painted and tiled.

Once the driver delivered our very large order, stain log cabin, annexe and decking I started to construct it all, the annexe went up very easily, and is a great addition for the cabin. Great for storing our bike and motor home equipment, well worth the price.

The annexe was delivered very quickly & the transport driver was very helpful unloading the package which came well wrapped & protected from the elements. All the pieces were in perfect condition & it was so simple to erect. I could thoroughly recommend Tuin products & customer service

A solid little tool store. Great added extra off the side of my summer house to keep the tools and mower in.

Very impressed with the side sheds so far. Bought two of them, one to go either side of a log cabin. The only issues I had was:
1) that they are supplied with the door fittings attached. I have therefore had to get a carpenter to remove and reverse the lock and hinges of one of the door sheds - otherwise, the door of one of the sheds would have been at the rear of the main cabin. I guess the advantage here is that if you are only getting one, the door hinges and lock are already fitted, so one less job to do. Perhaps they should offer them with a choice of right or left opening doors?
2) I had to create slots in the timbers that fit to the main cabin. Surely if you are buying a side shed (that is obviously going to be fitted to another wooden log type building), there should be specific fixing points. I only say this as it was quite awkward to create slotted holes with a drill. This would have been much easier with a router.

That being said, still happy with the sheds. The instructions provided were quite basic but the Email support was very informative and helpful. No problems getting a speedy response at the weekend.

I must admit that building the sheds and the main cabin was really enjoyable!

Very pleased with the delivery service, courteous, friendly & timely.
I already have a log cabin, now 2 years old and this was to extend the space. The same quality of timber, no missing pieces and easy to follow instructions. Would certainly reccomend Tuin to other prospective log cabin purchasers.

Purchased a 28mm annexed and was impressed with the customer service from the very start. The girls knew their product, knew when delivery was due and, sure enough, it arrived from Holland a few days later. Delivery was easily arranged and the fork lift dropped it right where it was needed!
The build was reasonably straightforward but a novice may find the instructions need more detail. However, to be fair, it's unlikely a novice would attempt to build such a unit without help.
To end all I can say is that I'd buy another one anytime!
Mr. Christopher Tassell

Great quality and very easy to assemble. It would have suited my log cabin if it was about a foot higher. Not such good value as the log cabin but nonetheless very happy with it.

Very pleased with this product, the 28 mm logs are still very rigid.
