The whole project has been a great success. The delivery driver could not have been more helpful and manoevred the pallet to exactly where I wanted it which was not easy.
I had originally built a timber sub-frame along the lines of the excellent blog on the website. Two of us erected the cabin including roof timbers over one weekend. Some of the longer timbers had twisted slightly y(not surprising) and we had to ease them in with the aid of some clamps but 99% of the timbers fitted with little trouble. We noted how vital it was that the timber base was exactly (and I mean exactly!) the right size and level. Because of that it went up with relative ease. I insulated the roof during the week and two of us got the shingles on the following weekend. So 4 man-days to watertight. I sought a few bits of advice from the tuin helpchat and got sound and valuable advice within minutes on every occasion. We bought the wooden floorboards and that went down extremely well. It's still a work in progress but it's still fun! Dealing with Tuin has been an absolute pleasure and their product has surpassed my expectations. If only all companies were like Tuin!

After researching log cabins for some weeks, we decided on the Tuin Newcastle as this product was far superior to their competitors. We were notified of delivery date, on due date we were phoned by the driver who confirmed an approximate time for the delivery. The driver was extremely helpful and courteous and placed log cabin in the front garden. We arranged for Phillip to install the log cabin but unfortunately due to circumstances beyond his control with staff, he was only able to send one fitter on day of installation so log cabin was built in two days rather than one. Slav, the fitter worked extremely hard and did a fabulous job. The Tuin team were very helpful and replied to queries very quickly throughout the whole process. Log cabin looks fantastic and we are extremely happy with the finished result. Thank you Tuin and Phillip’s team (Slav). Electrics and painting next jobs on list!!

Bought the Newcastle last summer. So pleased with it and the new family argument is "who can use the bar"..... it seems it gets booked out quite quickly.

From the outset Tuin were great. Delivery turned up and the driver spotted that some items were missing and sorted these out straight away (nice that it wasn't noticed when halfway through the build)

It has been erected for 9/12 months now and looks like it will stand forevermore. Amazing quality and value.

My wife and I built ours and it took about 4/5 days solid work to complete (I'm not quick at these things) and we did run into a few snags (I had fitted the window upside-down and the doorframe back to front) but was able to rectify these errors.

The paper instructions are not great, but the online help is top-notch

I had one twisted beam which I spent well over an hour trying to get to sit into place. Then found instructions on the Tuin website how to deal with warped/twisted beams and it slotted in within seconds.

If you are building yourself, my top tips are:
1. Watch the tutorials (the roof tiles one was very useful)
2. Get the base right
3. Follow the instructions
4. Keep referring to the online pictures not those on the instructions (that way you'll get the window and doors on correctly)
5. Treat the cabin properly - it will last for years
5. Remember it will cost as much again to kit out the interior

Thanks Tuin we will be enjoying our Cabin for years to come.

Very good quality log cabin. The guys who assembled it described it as the best quality they had ever installed. Delivery when requested and customer service very helpful.

Beautiful Log Cabin. Will be using it at our school.
Very sturdy and spacious inside. Would highly recommend this Cabin.
Tuin were great to deal with and always kept us updated on the progress of our delivery.

The Newcastle cabin was spot on for my purposes in that it gave me the workshop space I wanted and allowed a very good storage area. I have yet to finish fitting it out but so far it’s answered all my needs. Electrics are next then exterior paint to protect the structure. I would like to thank Tuin for recommending “Blueprint Carpentry & Construction” as one of your approved constructors. No fuss, nothing too much trouble, what a really good team these fellows are. Despite a couple of shortish days due to weather problems curtailing work they returned on the Monday ( unable to gain access to my property over the weekend due to a local carnival) to complete the job as promised. I can’t praise them enough, & well worth the fee. They even cleared up as they went through the job. I have some photos I would like to send so will do this separately as it appears I can’t do this here.

My husband and I purchased the Newcastle log cabin as a craft workshop for me. I had done lots of research and decided that the Newcastle was the right size and quality for what I wanted. The cabin is amazing and exceeds my expectations. Ordering, delivery and installation were efficient and painless.
Since installation it has been treated with wood preservative and is in the process of being fitted inside with electricity and cupboards etc. I could not be more delighted. It is absolutely perfect for my needs, being light, airy, spacious and durable.
Thank you.

Excellent service from beginning to end that made installation stress free. The cabin is of a superb quality and real value for money. We looked around before making our final decision, and no one could compete with price or quality. We would highly recommend both company and product.

The customer experience with Tuin has been first class, all the way from sales administration and confirmation to the delivery booking and product presentation off the vehicle. We are very pleased with the finished result and I cant wait to get painting once the snow has cleared.

I brought the Newcastle log cabin . The delivery company phoned me to tell me roughly when the cabin would be coming . The driver called a few hours before arriving . Placed the pallet containing everything right in the drive . After sorting all the pieces in order started to build the cabin mostly straightforward , attaching doors was a bit fiddly but got there . 1 day to get it up to roof level next day roof was all complete and some shingles layed . i gave it 3 coats of stain . The cabin is larger than i thought with plenty room inside , very pleased with it .

After much searching and investigating into log cabins, we decided we were going to go with Tuin, due to there good reviews and sensible prices. We were not disappointed , very helpful staff , delivery arrived on time , everything for the build was there. I had built a timber base on adjustable leg pads due to the fact the ground wasn't perfectly even. This did worry me a bit to be honest for the weight of the cabin, but the legs seem to work great and are a lot stronger than you would think. Delivery arrived on time and the haulier was helpful, We unpacked the large packages, and headed straight into the build the next day. We followed the guides and watched the build video many many many times. Once we got started the build went really well, we were impressed just how fast it got built. By the end of the first day the cabin was built and by the end of the second day the cabin was watertight and the floor was half way done. Very easy to put together even for us amateurs. The roof tiles took some more watching of the build video on-line, but once we got started found it to be easier than what we expected, just time consuming. Only problems we had was we fitted the door frame wrong,Instructions weren't great for this bit, however it was easily sorted as we could remove and correct the frame without dismantling the whole cabin. A couple of twisted logs proved a challenge to twist back being so thick ,but the are ok now.The cabin is amazing, with its 58mm walls and double glazing its unbelievably quiet inside, it is extremely warm inside also, even a few days later when the weather changed for the worst, the inside of the cabin is nice and cosy. Excellent service from start to finish , I also ordered the storm kit as an after thought, and this gave amazing piece of mind , Thanks Tuin for a great product.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! From start to finish the process has been very straightforward and the quality of the cabin exceptional. We took about an hour to lay down the foundation beam and went for the composite to avoid any future worries. After that, this large building went together as easily as Lego and we had the roof boards on inside 4 hours!!! Amazing. We left the doors and shingles to the next day and added a redwood floating floor with insulation to finish. The longest process is definitely the treatment and I'll be purchasing Sikkens for this after taking a lot of advice. Expensive, but will last and last. Our cabin provides extra outside, private space for our kids and a bolthole for me to enjoy our home cinema system - roll on Champions League nights!!! Can't recommend Tuin enough, everyone that has been round has been so impressed and astounded by the excellent value - I am sure this will lead to new purchases. Thanks a lot Tuin!

A magnificent cabin my only minor quibble is the instructions especially around fitting the doors are very unclear and somewhat skipped through in the on line video which did prove to be helpful in other areas.Altogether a good building very happy with result.

Only one word to describe this cabin - AWESOME! This is the second cabin I've put up, the first was far below the fantastic quality of this and relatively expensive by comparison. Delivery to the Scottish highlands is usually expensive, sketchy and difficult to arrange - but, along with the amazing spec of the cabin, was also first class - no damages, helpful and courteous driver, delivered as arranged.
Put the cabin up in a day with help from a friend, just finishing off the roofing as we speak. All in all, I can and have been recommending Tuin for all of the aforementioned reasons and if I ever need another log cabin (which I doubt) I know where I'll be heading for! A1 from start to finish, forget others these are the folks to buy from - big thanks to the whole team!

I wanted a log cabin for my soft furnishing business. The first company I tried was, in my opinion very pushy to the point that I paid my deposit and later asked for a refund. I started my search again and found Tuin, my first port of call was Ben, great customer service no pressure whatsoever, ditto to Richard and Karen, thanks guys. Every email/phone calls were answered promptly. The log cabin was delivered on time, driver was very helpful. Tuin recommended Philip to install the cabin, Philip certainly knows his job, he is very efficient and is a credit to the company, nothing was too much for Philip and his colleague Peter, they worked in bad weather and completed the installation in 2 days, thank you guys. The cabin is of excellent quality, it looks fabulous in our garden, we insulated the roof and floor with 50mm celotex insulation board and it is very warm in there. I have already recommended Tuin to one of my customers as I am very impressed with their customer service.

Having ordered the cabin I was rather nervous about a) its arrival and b) the construction. The poor delivery man was obviously not used to rather narrow Devon lanes but he did manage to arrive and unload (by which time it was dark and pouring). The construction went really smoothly and with the help of a very competent young lad, 3 of us had the main cabin structure up in a day, with only the roof to finish nailing the following day. I asked the young lad how many stars and he said 4 and a half, the half missing for some of the instructions that weren't too clear. Nailing the roof tiles was really enjoyable and didn't take too long. Because of the location and the vast amount of rain I have had to dig a trench around the cabin for drainage which is really important.
The people at Tuin are really helpful and always there to answer e mail questions.
I would advise if you are putting a cabin up in the winter to get some felt tile adhesive to prevent them flapping in windy conditions. I happened to see that recommendation in time to put some on the ridge.
All in all the cabin looks great I would definitely recommend Tuin.

I ordered the Newcastle Log Cabin after the cancellation of the one from another seller due to their bad reviews (some from youtube). The delivery was great as the driver appeared to be very experienced and kind.
Have to say this is a very heavy log cabin, even the shingles are about 25kg/pack, so it took me about half day to unpack and move them to my back garden with the help of my 6 yr old son. Installation is pretty straight forward if you follow the instructions and make the first logs right. The window to the side (3 panels) is very heavy, also the triangle roof parts, which really need two men but all the rest was done by myself. In total it took me a whole weekend and two half days to construct the whole thing but still requires maybe two days to sort out the floorboards and the roof shingles (having the insulation added). One thing I need to point out is the hinges of the windows, because it is designed to open both tilt and turn, it looks not fitting properly (might due to the quality of the hinge?).
Overall, good log cabin, thanks Tuin!

I brought the Newcastle log cabin 5.4 x 4.4, it came as expected. when the day came to build the cabin, after arranging the pieces out in order, the log cabin took shape quite swiftly, preparation is the key!
There were a few after sale queries I had, and I had a quick response via email or by phone.

I would recommend using Tuin again to anyone thinking of buying a log cabin.

The advice I had was excellent and I felt confident to buy with this company. The cabin arrived on time and on packing I don't mind admitting it was daunting. I followed their advice and the blog was very helpful. I built it on my own and am very happy. It's solid and a lovely building. I would recommend if asked by my friends.
