A timber frame base can be made from a variety of thicknesses and depths of timber. The strength comes from the depth (height) of the timber. Please see our Timber Frame Advice page. For timber such as 35mm x 50mm spacing must be 600mm or less. For thicker timber this can be increased to 1.00m - 1.50m or further. Ideally the base pads will be supported on a paving slab or similar and maybe bolted / screwed down as required. Weights of cabins are shown on the pages but consider the imposed loads you are applying inside the building.

As well as ideal for leveling timber frame bases these pads are perfect for decking construction.

Please Note. Most of our log cabins come with their own foundation beams, these beams are only their to act as a sacrafial barrier and are not in our opinion man enough to be used as a timber base and supported only at intervals.. When planning to use these base pads with our log cabins you will need your own timber base/structure directly ontop of the base pads and underneath the first layer of log cabin logs.

Great product, makes levelling a wooden based so easy. For their size, they are very strong and need to be, as a 1 tonne log cabin will soon be on the base. Would definitely recommend these if you need to create a raised level wooden base.

Pads arrived very promptly with free postage, which was good. A simple but clever design making them easy to adjust. They are quite robust and make levelling the base frame a dawdle. My only gripe is that the figures quoted for the adjustment range are quite confusing.

The timber frame base pads saved me a great deal of potential l'levelling' stress and the hassle of mixing and pouring concrete into car tyres as I had planned. The adjustable pads are easy to use and provide a rock solid support for timber frames/joists. I used 16 of the taller pads on a 4.3x4.3m frame with two central joists (all 6x4 inch) . The pads rest on paving slabs on a sloping site. Once your slabs are roughly level with each other the fine adjustments are easy with the Timber frame Base Pads. Glad I bought them!

This is a review of the base pad (32 - 62mm). Bought this as I was building a log cabin and i wanted to have a timber frame and not a concrete base. The area in question was uneven and this proved to be an amazing product which very quickly gets your levels rough correct and then make minor adjustment as and where necessary.

The budder friend who helped me build the frame said it was amazed how fast you could set to all up and start propping up where necessary. I bought both sizes as the joist were 40 cm apart and noggins around 50/60 cm - this was for an area 8m wide by 5m in depth. One thing is that the bas pads do have a large foot print and will be seen at the front. I used 100x100 timber and this will be clad with decking so you will not see underneath.

I used 6x2 timbers and where the base of the log cabin doubled the timber up so effectively i had 6x4. I also bought and used the larger base pads and a similar review is also given.
