FREE roof Shingles: As a standard building you can select either roofing felt or FREE shingles. We cannot guarantee which colour or shape will be sent. We will always let you know the colour and style following your order. It is rarely possible to change those offered as it is dependent on our stocks.

Free shingles for this Gijs 45mm Log Cabin are the same quality as our standard range and made by the same manufacturer. However, they are last year's stock and old range colours, also some packaging may not be 'as new'.

Standard Roof Shingles: These are from our standard catalogue range and are available in various colours and styles.

We highly recommend shingles with your log cabin: The final finish is far more superior and turns a shed into a stunning log cabin. Ordinary felt will last two - three years. Shingles will last for at least 15 years and it is unlikely you will ever need to replace them.

when confronted with piles of different lengths and shapes of wood the instructions are poor, but common sense kicks in and it is very easy to assemble. Slight damage as you would probably expect but the finished product is very impressive.
I have only the floor to put down can’t wait to move in!

I can't thank Tuin enough for this absolutely stunning Gijs Cabin. The ease of ordering, delivery and build was way beyond expectations, which helped reduce the stress of coordinating the build.
Here is my work Diary of the build:

Day 1:
Delivery driver got the huge but well packed pallet as close to the house as possible, still had to handball 25m though, which took 2 of us 3 hours. This also allowed us to layout in build sequence.

Day 2:
4 of us took 4 hours to build the cabin, it went together so unbelievably easy and super-fast, no doubt helped with me laying out in logical build sequence the day before. We did find a couple of logs with warpage but that was overcome with a bit of shaving and brute force.

Day 3:
It was just 3 of us on the roof, doing the shingles, which took us around 4 hours.
Also realised we had installed the doors inside out, but it was easy enough to remove the doors, chap out the upper plinth and remove the frame, took about 15 minutes.

I went to Tuin on the recommendation of a friend, and I am so happy that I did. I had looked at other companies in the UK (Waltons, Dunster house etc.) but none offered the range and quality of cabins at such low prices.

I have since put in a floor, Tuin was a bit pricy at £800, I did mine for £350. The videos on the website were a great help, watched them several times to get fully up to speed and I think it paid off.

Thank you Tuin, the Gijs is a beautiful building and I will certainly be recommending you to all my family, friends and colleagues.

Extremely happy with the log cabin I ordered. Communication around delivery was excellent and the driver went out of his way to unload it where I needed. The cabin was straightforward to construct, and I mostly managed to do it on my own, recruiting the help of a neighbour for the purlin. 18 months later the cabin is still going strong, and is serving me well while working from home. The price was really amazing for what it included, and the quality of the timber and design.

What a fantastic product and what an incredible experience building this cabin.

I bought the Gijs from Tuin after checking all the other suppliers. Definitely best value for money. I went as big as my garden would allow and I don’t regret it one bit.

Not an easy project. My garden slopes, I have no rear garden access and I have pretty average DIY skills. Still, I took the plunge and I am so glad I did.

I had some help with the base. It’s critical to get it square and level. Mine was a block ring with joist beans. The garden drops 1m across the plot so a lot of blocks. Factor in the extra cost if you have a wonky garden like mine.

Delivery was straightforward with the 6m package sat outside my house on the pavement. It pissed down for a week and I got very anxious about the timber getting wet. I needn’t have worried, it did no damage - a few minor warps and some blue staining, but you would not know now it is up.

All of the timber had to come through the house, the longer logs had to come through the front window. Not ideal, but I got it done.

The build was fast, I mean really fast. I started with the composite beam, which I put on a dpc on the block ring. From there the cabin went up in one day. Yep, one day. My brother in law helped and we got the roof timbers on and covered with a tarp and still had time for a few beers afterwards. It was so straightforward. Really, if I can do it anyone can.

I then spent the next week, spraying with 10 gallons of preservative and waterproofing. It did not take long with the sprayer, but waiting between coats was a drag. By the weekend I was ready to tackle the shingles. Daunting but surprisingly straightforward. It took a day to complete. One tip, leave a decent overhang at the sides.

So, roof on, now on to the floor. The worst bit for me. Getting the joists right was a pain. I wish I had spent a little more time on this because there is some spring in my floorboards. I might have to take up the vinyl and put down additional OSB sheeting. I’ll see how it goes. I bought the floorboards but to be honest I would not bother. The supplied joists are narrow and nailing butting floor planks was a faff. As the boards dried the gaps opened a bit, so I would suggest making sure your timber is 100% dry before hammering in the million nails required. Personally, I would go for a real thick OSB if I had my time again. I put vinyl down once finished so the boards do not show anyway. Save your money on this.

Doors and windows were easy. I put in my doors to open inwards, just works better for me.

So, you think I must be nearly there. Wrong. I had to deck the verandah. What a fabulous feature this is on the Gijs - 6m x 2m. The deck was a big job because of the slope and cost more than I had budgeted. It took two weeks. Then there was paint. OMG what a nightmare. I used Cuprinol garden shades. Really good paint but there was acres to cover. I did two coats on all interior walls and the front. It took me two weeks. The ceiling was a real chore. It looks great, but you need a lot of patience.

So everything done. Oh yes I insulated under the floor but not the roof. Do the roof! On hot sunny days the shed does get very hot. It was 35 degrees and just about bearable with the windows open and a fan on, but wish I had insulated the outside of the roof boards. Personally, I think Tuin should include in the kit.

I had the electrics connected by a qualified pro. I ran the cables around the outside of the shed - so no ugly wires inside. I did my own broadband install. A steep learning curve to configure the router and make up a 25m CAT5 cable.

So, the furnishings were then purchased - all salvaged second hand stuff from FB Market Place and junk shops. I built my bar from leftover timber. And.... finally the Frinton Arms opened on 17th August. 3 months from start to finish.

Some of the build was a real chore at the time but looking back, I feel really proud of my build. I learned such a lot of new skills, surprising myself along the way. Next time I will be perfect, haha.

I spent around £10k in all. The Gijs was less than one third of the budget (I did a lot of decking and landscaping). But for what I have now, that is a complete bargain. The Gijs cabin is fantastic - a great space.

Come and visit! Have a pint in the Frinton Arms. Thanks Tuin, I have recommended you to my jealous visitors. Your product is simply supetb.

Wish I could post my pictures and videos - I think you might like it.
