Welcome to our Bespoke Page, using the form below please select your Bespoke Requirements and submit your drawing.

If you cannot find a Log Cabin that suits your exact needs we can make one for you. Log thicknesses available are 28, 40, 44, 58, 70 and 92mm thick wall logs. Bespoke buildings are only available in Apex, Pent or Flat roof configurations.

Different Log Thicknesses for a Bespoke Log Cabin:

If you are struggling to choose a log thickness that best suits your design then please take a look at our recommendations below on the common uses for each thickness:

  • 28mm: A great choice for cabins on the smaller side of things, commonly used in buildings for storage/sheds. You generally wouldn't choose this thickness if your building has a width span greater than 4m.
  • 40mm: A prominent option for a thicker log while keeping the building cost-effective, the 40mm/44mm log tends to be more the commonly used thickness as it fits perfectly for summerhouse and garden office-type designs.
  • 44mm: The 44mm Log is very similar to the 40mm log however an important thing to note is that to get double glazing on the building does need to be a minimum of 44mm logs.
  • 58mm: Having a thickness of 58mm gives you a much stronger log leading to a more structurally sound building which also makes it a lot easier for heat to be retained in the building, this thickness is a great option if you are looking for 
  • 70mm: Our 70mm log is one of our most substantial log thicknesses, commonly used on larger structures this option is ideal for accommodation and even commercial building use with the thicker log and great for all-year-round use.
  • 92mm: The thickest of our available log options this creates the ultimate building, this is a unique log thickness specially made for the bespoke range.

Bespoke Log Cabin Plans:

If you are satisfied with the quotation we will then draw plans for you. There are examples on this page. If you would like more examples, please ask us to ensure they are suitable for you.

The remaining 50% is paid just prior to delivery. Should you need to cancel the order we will try to sell your building to recover your deposit and return it to you. Please note, in the summer our staff may take longer to return to you with plans, due to it being an overall busier period.

Please be aware any lead times given with bespoke are estimates as there are sometimes variables that can happen which can delay the building however we will always try be as accurate as possible to ensure complete clarity

Purchased a “bespoke” corner cabin, took the Asmund design and removed/reduced the windows to make the cabin more secure.
1) Bespoke isn’t really true, you still need to comply with the rules Tuin provide and in some cases getting a bespoke design gives you less options later when creating support.
2) Arrival was fine, articulated lorry must have been parked on main road and the forklift lorry delivered it to the door.
3) Instructions were perplexing. I did make 99% of the cabin on my own but found another person far more useful in deciphering the instructions than in helping the erection of the cabin
4) Implemented a homemade based using 2 x 6 placed on shed legs to support both the cabin walls, and the floor. This should provide an exceptionally long lasting cabin
5) Purchased the embalan timber paint and gave it a few coats. Seems to be doing fine if a little expensive.
6) Opted for free roofing felt. Tuin didn’t send enough roofing felt, I complained and they shipped the final pack necessary to complete the roof
7) To cover the roof we used a pre-fabricated access platform. It would be difficult without a long ladder.
Overall, the cabin feels well-built and hopefully will last a long time and yes we are happy with the final result. The problems with a bespoke cabin not being bespoke. We couldn’t change the base type (e.g eco bearers) or modify flooring meant were disappointed. The instructions left something up to the imagination

I ordered my custom sized Geir garage back in May and I dealt with Lee. Most impressed with the communication and accuracy of the estimated time of delivery. It arrived in June and well packaged and also in the location I specified as I was not home at the time. The kit went together brilliantly, only one length did not go together well, but as they put one spare in, it caused no issue with the built. I built it myself and it was completed in about 4 days, if you have help it'll be done sooner as the roof takes the most time. I'd recommend following the very handy advice on the Tuin website. This will ensure your build goes to plan. Be ready to spend over £250 on good quality preserver and paint. I did this and have only had one length that has moved about 10mm, considering the heat we had in the summer I am impressed. I'd highly recommend Tuin.

45mm Stig log cabin is now built and looks stunning.
The foundation beams were not sent with cabin - I thought everything was in the packs but apparently these would have been on top!! So build and therefore painting all got delayed - I was not very happy about this but Tuin paid the installers and sent upgraded plastic beams.

Cabin not yet painted but quality is great and I can envisage many happy hours using it.
It's a fab summer house ☺️

Hi Tuin,
I purchased from you a bespoke log cabin (8m x 4m).
Pallet arrived on time, the driver was very helpful and placed the pallet exactly as I asked. I had laid a concrete base ready for construction which went very well. I was impressed with the quality and fit of the parts. I was anxious to get my cabin built and water tight as bad weather was imminent. As the build continued I realised that there were no roof shingles in the pallet which was something of a surprise as it says all over your website "Free Shingles". I had thought the price to be good but I didn't realise that this did not include a roof or a floor, the "log cabin" was in fact just four walls !
I managed to engage a local roofing company who fitted a rubber roof for an additional £1000 so the roof is now, finally, water tight. The walls have been treated with three coats of Sadolin Superdec in Clover Leaf and are for the most part leak free, there are some knot holes that seep a little if the rain drives against a wall.
The cabin now houses my tools and a new centre lathe and soon to house a milling machine also. Wood burning stove installed and 50mm insulation in the roof make it nice to work in there.
So all good, took longer than expected and cost more than expected but the result is brilliant.
