Thank you for supplying an excellent product. I emailed a number of times asking questions before placing an order. The helpfulness and speed of response was first class.
I was informed as to when the delivery would take place and the driver (Martin) was so efficient the product was off loaded and put in the required position with ease. I was daunted at first when I saw the amount of timber but the helpful instructiions and youtube clips were of great assistance. The structure was up and ready to put the shingles on in 2 days. There were a couple of items that were not explained well. the gables were pre assembled but it did not say that they had to be dis assembled in order to construct the roof and some of the minor items, ie trims etc were not covered in the instructions. It is a great product and I have had many comments on how sturdy and solid the building is. I have and will continue to recommend Tuin as I believe it is a first class product backed by a first class company. Thank you.

1st I must say we love our cabin ! It came on the day it was booked for the driver was brilliant all the components were all there it took me 5 days on my own to build but I went on the website with anything I was struggling with and my problems were solved all in all if you take your time and have patience any project even a log cabin will be ok in the end ! We love it top piece of woodworking by a good organisation
Thanks Chris

Having never built anything like this in my life I was slightly uneasy about how it would go, but once arrived (which it did on time as per date quoted) it was remarkably straight forward to put up! I had the main outer shell put up on the same day it had arrived, mostly by myself with a little help from my kids. Putting the roof beams in was a little trickier and you definitely need help with this! But still simple enough. My only wee niggle is the instructions are a little vague/basic but any worries/problems just email them and every time I got a reply back almost instantaneously! An excellent service all round and would highly recommend and will definitely use again.
Thanks again for this great well put together product.

The actual kit was both very accurate and easy to construct. The only problem was that I ordered the thicker t & g floorboarding which was not of uniformed width and I had to make adjustments to getting it looking correct. I am an apprentice trained carpenter and I think a diy purchaser would have struggled with the flooring but not with the structure

The purchase of a log cabin was not high on my agenda but after seeing the quality of a friends I was sold. The ordering was simple, the transport company very helpful and the finished Johan far exceeds my expectations.
My son took on the project from digging foundations through to installing electrics. I have chosen to keep the outside natural wood colour, three coats of a clear protective product, and used the coloured protective stain supplied on the floor, which looks good. I have not enclosed pictures as the landscaping is not quite finished but can only say I am totally delighted with the finished product although the whole project has turned out more expensive than I originally thought. I know I will enjoy using it for many years.

Ordered my log cabin a week or so into lockdown, delivery was as stated with no delays. The shell and roof were erected quickly, it has now become a pub shed / home office. Would highly recommend just wish I had bought one years ago.

After searching local garden building manufactures and viewing many online firms we ordered a Johan log cabin from Tuin after reading the reviews of satisfied customers and looking at the quality and finish of the build.
It was delivered exactly as stated and placed on our drive expertly.
The build went together well and every joint slotted in nicely, with the help of my wife ( being a joiner helped) but the last top log was a head scratcher having a cut out but nothing to slot in... but then found out the upright support pole covers this slot.
I would recommend Tuin (already have, neighbours ordered one) but wish the roof boards were a little thicker though.

I viewed lots of products on line but the Tuin ones seemed by far the best. I can honestly say I am not disappointed. The delivery arrived on time and I was eager to begin the process of building my new log cabin. It took myself and my son a weekend to get the complete structure and roof assembled and another day to finish the shingles. It's amazing how quickly the whole thing comes together and was a pleasure to build. The entire process was easy to complete from start to finish and is an amazing end product. I cannot recommend Tuin enough from start to finish. Well worth the money with an fantastic end result. Thank you.

I ordered a Johan 5x4 mtr log cabin , it was delivered exactly on time, the company was extremly helpful and efficient, I used Philip Osorio to erect the cabin , he was very reasonably priced, returned all emails imediatly turned up on time and done a very good job , He and his buddy worked hard all day and finished the job in 1 day where other firms quoted 2 days they finished the job and cleaned up after , in my opinion Phil offers a exellent service and i will use him again, I am also delighted with the finished cabin its actualy better than what I expected

It took us a while to eventually decide which log cabin would suit our garden and needs. Eventually we decided on the Johan and are delighted with it. Dealing with Tuin made for a sound investment, exceptional customer service and advice and outstanding quality of product. The delivery was made in a timely manner and it was really easy to build. After sales service has also been very professional with information on water treating our cabin. Would have no hesitation in using Tuin again if the need arises, and absolutely love our Johan

after reading many reviews on buying log cabins, I kept coming across Tuin so decided to trust the reviews. I bought the Johan cabin, with no previous experience in building cabins I must say how easy it was to build the shell, and roof was built by 2 of us in 5 hours and the floor went in next day. It was simple to build and every piece was precisely cut and fit together perfectly. I would certainlY recommend Tuin and any of there products to anyone.

In terms of design, the Johan cabin is a good size, porch adds interest both inside and out and the two windows making it light and airy. Ordering was straight forward with good communication to agree the week for delivery. However, delivery is subcontracted out and the cabin arrived unannounced a day early quite late into the evening. That said, the driver was very good unloading and transporting the cabin package where required. Overall we found the cabin of excellent quality although a few pieces were damp and stained. We also had some of the floor packs missing which were sent on separately later. Two of us managed to get the cabin up in a day. The tricky parts being the initial set out of the foundation beams (since the cabin doesn't have a rectangular floor plan) and the roofing. We also had to cut the timbers near the roof to get the main beam to fit. Late into the evening we finished with the shingles to make the cabin water tight. Overall we are delighted with the cabin - it is solid in construction and looks great in the garden

This is a really gorgeous cabin. Having the porch section makes for a much more cosy and less 'shed like' feel inside and out. Putting it together was very easy. The walls themselves went up in about 2.5 hrs, working mostly on my own with some help from the kids and my wife. The instructions were simple and clear. All parts were included and in great condition. The roof however will take a long time to put on due to the positioning of the tongue and groove boards and the amount of nailing. The felt shingles is definitely a well-advised upgrade giving a much better appearance and better longevity. It took 2-3 days for this whole process for me. The preparation prior to erecting the cabin is also more substantial. Creating a stable, square and perfectly level base is crucial and takes time, 1-2 days. I also will need to treat it and this will take at least a whole day. Still, a very gratifying job and a really lovely addition to the garden, providing playing and relaxing space for the family. Brilliant value and fantastic service from Tuin too.
