First of all the website deserves a mention, since it's probably the most well informed and helpful I've come across, and the main reason for finally choosing to buy from Tuin. Lots of great advice on how to get started, and videos to learn from.
Next the delivery service. Wow, these guys were brilliant. Bang on time, and the driver was incredily efficient and precise. I said where I wanted the pack, and I think it was placed with mm accuracy.
When it came to unpacking, that was the next nice surprice. Everyting was so neat and perfectly packed it was so easy to identify all the pieces. I had help from other family members for this, and due to that fact it wasn't until almost completing the build I noticed two parts were missing (I'll come back to this later).
Anyway, started un packing after lunch on Friday, and by 17:30 my son and I had built up all walls, and fitted the long rafter beams. It really is that simple, and I completed the rest of the project by myself. This was done over the weekend and all the evenings of fhe following week.

There really is a lot of nails to bang in!

The only part I struggled with is the door frame. The instruction leaflet was next to useless, and if anything added to my confusion, so I just went with instinct in the end. The two missing bits were a couple of planks used to finish the ends of the roof as wind boards. The pack was supposed to have 4 of these, but in fact there were only 2. Luckily I had some spare wood and they were more than adequate for the purpose. I'd say that perhaps spare roof boards, or floor boards could have been used instead, but it wasn't a show stopper.
Lastly, I followed the very helpful online video very closely to fix the shingles and it was apparent that the 7 packs sent with the cabin wouldn't quite be enough to do the job in completely the same way. Nonetheless, there were just enough with some minor adjustments to the layout, and I completed the task regardless. 8 packs of shingles would have been better, allowing for a couple of mistakes perhaps and some spares, if required.

On the whole, an excellent product, very well priced, and with excellent customer service. I am very satisfied with the results.
