Thankfully the weather improved. I construction 3 months after taking delivery, despite the very wet weather, one of the wettest January every, there was no water ingress and all timbers dry, although there were numerous split logs which didn't matter to me as I put them on the inside.
Construction was rapid on a very level solid concrete base. I took my time with the roof, laying under felt (2 rolls from b&q 1x10m £40) them fixing 50mmx50mm treated batons, then covering witn 50mm Quinntherm
(celotex eqiv), then laid 11mm osb board on top, tben the roof shingles. If you are going to install gutters allow emough overhang. I used 2 boards from the delivery pallet, planned and sanded as facia boards to hang the gutters from, it give a good finish as you don't the roof boards or the batons. I used 2 shingles on the leading edge on top of the underfelt and stick tnem together using shingle glue Sitefix, it gives a good ridgid finish.
The only components I was dissapointed with was the roof apex which was badly cut and the window mechanism which was badly made.
You really do not need to pay to have this cabin constructed by a tradesman, providing the base is level and square you won't have any problems. I didn't rush the construction, the roof, the wood treatment, 3 applications inside and out, and roof boards all treated using Barretine wood preservative.
After researching other cabin suppiers I found this is the best log cabin manufactuer on the market.

Got our cabin erected in later August last year, the 58mm thickness meant that with the help of a little blow heater we were able to use it through winter. I can’t fault the CustomerService and delivery. The cabin has one or two small issues, the lock on the door and the door themselves are not the greatest but you get what you pay for. Would I recommend this product, absolutely, and Idid. My mate has just finished his last week.

From delivery (and the efforts the driver went to to get the package from the lorry up the road onto the driveway) through to the quality of the cabin materials enabled me to build the cabin single handedly (apart from some assistance lifting the window in) in three days. The online videos were also of great use (particularly around the shingles).

The flooring package however was a different story. I had two floor beams so badly bowed that they couldn’t be used (luckily I have a wood store and could replace them) and the boards themselves were not great. Of 35 boards, 5 couldn’t be used at all due to the amount of knot holes (leaving either holes or jagged edges) or dents and scrapes. I also found boards of different widths which needed planing. Only a few mm different but that obviously puts the whole floor out of line when you have a width needing one full and one cut board. All was surmountable (luckily I finished the floor using the last good board I had) but for the money I expected better.

Very good prices and delivery .Cabin went up in less than a day .Very good quality and what is refreshing is that you have bits over rather than the old MFI days when you had to go and get more nails etc .Slightly Disappointed on double glazing as it is different for windows and doors ( doors much smaller) also furniture is white on windows and chrome on doors ? (being sorted out now with friendly staff).Overall a very good experience,Just one big tip experienced after a very big storm if your base has slight ripples or undulations on concrete make sure you force mastic or silicone under base rails(get hardwood they are definitely worth it and sets cabin off a treat ) as wind forces rain under them and got slight puddle in cabin , my own fault and should have done it first . Need a log cabin carport now back to the catalogue .
