The Halvar log cabin is our second from Tuin, after having an Emma cabin in our last garden.
We bought this 3m x 3m cabin to fit perfectly in an unused part of the garden.
Our fitter took a couple of days to build, with another day spent on the shingles, which he’d never tackled before.
The 28mm logs are great quality and help keep the warmth in, as do the black shingles, which soak-up all the sunlight.
Really happy with the cabin overall, and effectively gives us an extra room which is ideal for quiet naps!

Very good product, and an interesting project. A couple of the boards needed extra work to fit in and the door catch is sticking. These apart I was pleased with the completed building .
Tuin reply: Thats looking great john, thank you for sharing and i'm pleased to hear you managed to overcome the problems faced. Timber can be a pain sometimes but i'm happy to see it looking superb in your garden

Order & delivery perfect. The truck the cabin arrived on was enormous but luckily the driver was so efficient holdups we’re minimal. Arrived a day early by appointment. Was under tarp for nearly 2 weeks before installation - only adverse affect was some of floor boards discoloured slightly. Amazingly well packed with glass in windows and double doors in tact. Construction was fast once figured out base layer but shingles & floorboards were a slower process esp in heatwave. Nothing missing in pack which was a relief. Some of the videos could have been clearer but generally most could be figured out. Took 2 long days with 2 people but just one lead the process..
Most tedious bit was barge board installation- had to trim a bit as double doors clashed with it and repositioning leaves ugly corners having mitred them in a lower position initially.
Generally well pleased with quality & service and at sale price was good value. Good work Tuin

Overall very impressed with the quality of everything included. Fairly simple put together though the roof beams definitely need a few pairs of hands as I discovered after hours of balancing it all together lol the roof shingles are decent and finish it nicely but is quite time consuming to complete. There is quite a bit guess work involved as in no information about the roof mainly, though doesn’t take a genius to work it out. Overall decent log cabin, solid build. Would recommend.

From order to delivery The Tuin staff were excellent. It took me and my friend 7hours to build even though the assembly instructions are not the best. I’m absolutely delighted with my house and would recommend Tuin to any one thinking of purchasing.

We spent a bit of time researching our purchase and settled on the Halvar Pyramid Roof Log Cabin from Tuin. We are very pleased we did. The cabin is now completed and we're very happy with it. The kit is very good quality. It is worth taking the time to read the instructions and take care to make sure the base is level. I even bought a new mallet to help with the assembly process but I never needed it, everything slotted together by hand. We were expecting a few problems because of Covid 19 but we have to say everything went like clockwork. Everything happened just as we were told it would be. The delivery driver was great, he phoned when he was near and he put the cabin exactly where we wanted it. We carefully checked the packing list before we started and everything was there. Two minor gripes, one piece of wood was damaged but I just glued the broken bit back on during assembly. The barge boards were actually too wide but I just ripped them down with a circular saw. It took me about 10 minutes in total. The roof was a bit tricky but the end result was well worth the effort. I'm not sure there is too much that could have been improved on. I would be very happy to recommend Tuin to anyone considering a summerhouse or log cabin.

Fantastic service, delivery driver couldn't have been more friendly. The log cabin has transformed a unused corner of our garden into a useable space. The cabin was easy to assemble and I would look nowhere else in the future.

Having looked around for a while for a suitable cabin we settled for the Halvar from Tuin. We were impressed by the price but more importantly the level of detail and honest information on the website.
Having very little DIY experience I was nervous about the build, however it was so straight forward. I must say though you need to read carefully all information available, from the instructions in the pack, the website and even YouTube videos. Take your time and you will be fine.
The cabin walls went up in a breeze, the longest time taken was the pyramid roof. A lot of hammering nails! Although the trickiest of roofing, I think the best looking. With the shingles it looks so much nicer than a lot of flat roof cabins you see around. It also makes inside bigger feeling.
Overall I am so delighted to have bought the Halvar, great quality, great price, great company! Wouldn’t hesitate to buy from Tuin again and have recommended to all friends who have seen and love the Halvar.

We ordered the cabin and in spite of a slight glitch at the initial order and delivery time, the cabin was very much worth the wait. The delivery company were exceptional, helpful and put the cabin EXACTLY where we asked, so 11 out of 10 to them. Now to the cabin, it is incredibly well made, sturdy and looks far superior to our old run down 'shed', in fact, we wish we had ordered a larger one now... We highly recommend both TUIN and this Summer House - also the best prices we could find on the internet.

Top marks for the delivery driver no problems driving up quite a steep hill with his forklift. The summerhouse was very well packed with only one log that was slightly damaged. We purchased the composite floor logs. One of them was badly bowed which made the base very difficult to square. The walls of the house went up easily but we had some of the logs breaking at the ends when being hammered down. We were not hammering the ends. Fixed easily by just driving a couple of nails from underneath to reattach.
The pyramid roof is tricky frame is tricky to build and place on top of the walls. It also looks rather flimsy but after the roof boards are fitted it held my large frame no problem while fitting the shingles. The shingles are easy to fit but watch one of the YouTube videos first, as you don’t want to make mistakes. I think we were left with three strips so you won’t have many spare in the packs supplied. The shingles are a must though as they really set the house off. We topped the roof with the finial and brass ball and looks fantastic. Painting it is a pain and seems to go on forever after three coats of treatment and two coats of paint. If I did it again I would pay the extra and have it treated before delivery. It’s certainly been tested of late with the Scottish weather and remains watertight. All in all I am very happy with the house but wish there was a specific build video as the instructions aren’t clear. If it wasn’t for the silly things during the build I would had no trouble giving five stars.

They delivery from holland was first class, only one problem we did not have the base rail, on contacting the customer service things were sorted out and by 08-15 the next day the base rail was delivered to me. We had clear instructions on how to put it together we are very happy with our cabin and everyone who has seen it was very happy and I have recommen tuin to all friends and family.

Lovely cabin, just poor quality timber in some cases and had to insist on replacements being sent. Have built this myself (my father did lots of lifting, carrying and staining!) and am pleased with the result. It did take me quite a while to complete but my excuse is that I'm a female diy-er in my 50s! Ive learnt a lot of new skills on the way. The videos and blog were useful but I do think that the drawn instructions were good too. The shingles have finished off the cabin beautifully. 3 stars are for the average customer service , I give 5 stars for the finished cabin.

One word for my log cabin "Fantastic"
It wasn't the easiest roof to put together with its pyramid shape, as I decided to cut each roof board individually.
I am however glad I did, as it looks great from the inside too.
I also took my time putting on the roof shingles so that they lined straight up the center.
I was looking for a shed, but have finished up with great looking cabin in my garden for the same money.
Many thanks,

I am highly delighted with the Halvar cabin. Fortunately I chose to have it erected by one of the fitters recommended by Tuin (Philip) and the end result gives me great satisfaction.

delivery was excellent. Good solid build easy to erect. Roof was a bit tricky. Very happy with a quality product. I think a DIY er might struggle with the installation.
