Just received my cabin yesterday morning. Exact on time, very nice obliging driver who took time to position the materials on the drive, leaving sandy room to still park the cars. Everything very well wrapped to protect against the cold Scottish wind and rain. Can't wait for the joiner to start. So far delighted We chose Thin. Wl keep you updated on progress

We ordered the gustav 5x4 with shingle roof. From the moment we ordered, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Delivery was excellent, driver very friendly and helpful. Everything was well packed and protected. Instructions were not the most comprehensive but ok if you can manage a jigsaw or flat pack. Construction was very easy, 10 hours in total from starting to finishing the roof. Quality is outstanding overall, if I had to make a criticism it would be the quality door handle and window latch however both fitted and functional. Would definitely recommend tuin above other companies. Love our log cabin.

This is my second Tuin cabin (because I moved house and wanted one at the new place). I am very pleased yet again with the service, product and price. The quality has improved and the price has stayed pretty much the same. Excellent service and delivery, the man who delivered it was brilliant. It went together really easily and looks great. Highly recommend!

The cabin was ordered in autumn, and delivered the following March. I had serious concerns about the delivery as access is via narrow Devon lanes. I was so impressed that the delivery driver parked his massive vehicle 3/4 mile away and did the rest by forklift, leaving the pallet exactly where I needed it.
It was left in the open, well covered, until May, and was absolutely fine. It took three of us two days to construct onto a concrete base, and there were virtually no problems. I was a little worried when I found daylight showing through a gap when the 5m beam was laid across the front windows and doors, but found this righted itself once the roof was finished, and the building settled. The most difficult part was probably laying the shingles - time consuming, tiring and not to be recommended on a sunny day! The shingles do get very hot - and sticky. Laying the floor took me, working alone, another two days. The finished product is excellent, and if you are able to construct it yourself is fantastic value for money. As always, preparation is key and the Tuin website has a wealth of information with Richard's blog invaluable. It is now painted inside and out, and looking forward to summer. Great product, Tuin!

We'd been looking a while for a summerhouse before we settled on this one from Tuin, initially because the price was so reasonable. The summerhouse arrived on time, and i was kept updated throughout. Really impressed with the quality of the timber and materials. The instructions were easy to follow and in total took about a 1.5 days to build which is far less than id anticipated. All in all a great product from a great company!

Fantastic product, delivery on schedule, helpful driver.
We used concrete base and erection was very easy.
Walls up first day and roof completed second day.
Have since added annexe(used as Sauna), also delivered on time and excellent quality. Only negative unable to speak to anyone re roofing options prior to ordering despite many calls!
Many thanks for a quality product.

First class From ordering online to delivery, Fitting was very easy with all components packed in order as they are fitted. It took about 3 short days to erect and the quality is second to none, Highly Recommend

Ordered at start of lockdown to create a garden office. For the most part a relatively easy assembly despite being a solo build, the warped planks being the main challenge. Tuin out of hours support was fantastic. Very happy with outcome.

Well packaged and timely delivery. All components arrived as ordered. The slot together fit and ease of assembly of the side walls was amazingly simple and very accurately machined. The two gable ends were number to make sure that they went in the correct place. A good level perimeter base is needed. The door and window fitting is simple. Roof shingles quantity is only just right so don't waste too much on the overhangs. Tanalised base rails are a bit rough but work ok. Overall a great cabin and one i would recommend.

Purchased in June this year and from the outset...ordering through delivery faultless.
The delivery driver was polite, efficient and placed the 5mtr 'package' exactly where we wanted it.
Both of us..reluctant diy's took just one day to get to roof level.Checking the levels every course and the square every 3 layers. So far easy peasey!
The roof beams although heavier and higher up were again easy....everything is just so well engineered.
Roof boards and the shingles all fitted by the close of play day2.
Just a few notes..
Do unpack and move all the pieces yourself to get used to the lengths.
Do check the door frame carefully to ensure that each side is common...saves taking it out and re-screwing!
Our only problem was hanging the doors....we had to get a couple of friends to help us get them level..I did tell you that we are reluctant diy's.
Its now painted, has it's floor laid and being used daily.
A truly 5 star summer house!
Well done Tuin

Delivery day arrived, I was a little worried about access when I saw size of wagon! I needn't have been as the driver very helpful and cabin was off loaded with fork lift and placed as near to site as possible.
Everything was unpacked and moved into position, I spent a bit time identifying all parts,seemed a jigsaw at first then all becomes clear. My friend and I assembled everything with the exception of the roof in less thad 6 hours, the fit quality is great to say the least.
I noticed that 2 x small lengths of timber had been damaged in transport, I spoke to Richard, gave sizes and replacements were sent same day. I still have T & G floor to lay, then I can start enjoying!
From initial communication to delivery and after I can't praise the Tuin team enough.

We are VERY satisfied with our Gustav log cabin. We are using it as a social area with a bar and seating. We also have a home cinema in it which all the family are loving. The customer service from start to finish from Tuin has been excellent. The quality of the product is of a high standard and any minor issues we had were resolved quickly and efficiently. The erecting of the cabin was straightforward (as long as you have DIY skills). We painted every side of each piece of wood, which was recommended. It was very time consuming but we are happy that we did it as it will incur less movement due to any moisture in the future and it gives you a better finish. We used Sikkens undercoat (15 litres) and 15 litres of grey matt for the outside. In total we spent about £360 on paint which seems a lot but we used good quality paints and that included 3 coats internally as well. We would highly recommend this Company to anyone considering a log cabin as we love ours.

We bought in the summer and due to ground prep waited a few months before building. First of all it was very easy to order. We shopped around a lot and this was by far the best value. Delivery was good and the driver was helpful. Some other companies would not even consider delivering to Scotland. Two of us built it. Was very straightforward once all the parts were laid out. Took about 4 hours to build the walls and about 2 hours to nail on each board for the roof. The door and window sections just slotted in (unfortunately we didn't realise that there was an inside and an outside for these - so one window is the right way around and one the wrong way and we had to do a bit of fiddling about as we put the door on facing the wrong way - rookie mistakes!! But no one can tell except us. We also put a substantial floor underneath - concrete joists, flooring boards and insulation before putting on the pine floor boards. In addition to the shingles we added more insulation to the roof. We also connected to electricity and installed lights on the inside and outside plus put in sockets. The longest time was spent varnishing the outside and inside. All the time and effort have been worth it. It's like an extra room has been added to our house without the need for planning permission and at a fraction of the cost. It looks amazing - is extremely sturdy and already stood up to the extreme weather we suffer! We have no doubt that this will be a major selling point for our house. Can't recommend the company or this log cabin enough.

purchased a Gustav 5.0 x 3.8 log cabin in the summer .I waited for a few months before writing a review as wanted to see how it performed. Firstly I was vey impressed with the ordering of the cabin which was easy to do. The delivery the driver was very helpful .
A few days later I came to erect the cabin and was generally impressed by the instruction ,once I took the time to read them and sort out all the pieces (a must if you don't want to confuse yourself). I insulated the floor and roof to add insulation on those colder day (a great help). The cabin has now been up for 4 months and would not hesitate in recommending Tuin .

Both products we purchased from Tuin were excellent and exceeded our expectations. The log cabins was easy to install and was put up in day. The qualtity and the cut of the wood again was very good. We received our purchase within 10 days and the chap giving techincal support spoke in laymans terms that even if could understand. Marvellous value for money log cabins delivered with good old fashioned customer service.

Several of our friends have been inspired to build an extra room fantanstic value for money.
