I am really happy with my Bo 3x3 cabin.
The delivery was smooth and the driver competent and helpful.
At first I was worried that I would not be able to accurately identify all the components in the kit, but once the foundation beams were down and the first logs were in place, it was quite straightforward.
I enjoyed constructing the cabin immensely [with the help of a neighbour]; it was very satisfying to see the cabin take shape, and the walls and door were up in a few hours. The roof takes longer, since you obviously have to use ladders, or in our case, some jury scaffolding to nail the roof boards on. I thought that it would have been helpful if the last "logs" of the walls had been designed to take the nails of the roof boards instead of having tongues on their upper edges like all the others. This would have made them much easier to nail into.
The shingles were straightforward enough to fix, though somewhat fiddly, and it was important to calculate accurately how much overlap you allow each row, to avoid running out of tiles.
So far as installing the floor is concerned, I have a criticism; instead of having beams which would reach the full interior dimension of the cabin, all of our beams were short, which meant a good deal of extra and unnecessary work joining them together.
But all in all, I am very happy with the finished cabin, a handsome structure which now adds interest to our garden.
