Timber base pads make easy work of leveling your timber frame to be used as the base for your log cabin or garden building. Two sizes are available to cope with most moderate inclines of 0 - 140mm with a combination of pads.


  • Made from ABS plastic.
  • Designed to make levelling of a timber frame base easy and quick.
  • High Quality design.
  • Wide base plate for stabilisation.
  • Central ring to adjust height.
  • BLACK in colour.
  • Suitable for up to 90mm thickness timber.
  • Support flange Height 25mm.
  • 6mm diameter holes in flange and base plate.


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.

Two Type of pads:

  • 40.2073 Adjustable height of 32 - 62mm. Maximum weight 450kg
  • Full Closed Height: 56mm
  • Full Open height: 87mm
  • 40.2074 Adjustable height of 60 - 122mm. Maximum weight 1400kg 
  • Full Closed Height: 89mm
  • Full Open Height: 150mm
Approximate Delivery Time: 3 - 5 Working Days

We bought these because the area we intended to put our shed on was already slabbed but sloped in two directions and they seemed to be ideal to sit the shed on the level. Highly delighted with them I have to say. They do exactly what they were bought to do and the shed feels solidly grounded and level. We bought some of both sizes as the slope was a steeper gradient than we would have liked. It did take a bit of trial and error to find the right height for the ONE which was in the middle under the floor of the shed, which obviously had to be adjusted before we put the shed down - but the rest were relatively easy to screw up or down until the height was correct. Very happy with purchase

Excellent Item, used to support timber base for UPVC Lean to. Perfect for need, easy to install and adjust.

Prompt and efficient service. Had my doubts about these as to strength. But on a 5 x4 base spaced every mtr these were great at getting a level base, Would suggest getting the heavier duty ones as levels can be increased by more. Great product and reasonable price.

As we were using a timber frame decided to use these base pads to save a bit of work with the levelling. They worked well, not sure how easy it will be to retrospective adjust them should we need to. Only regret, the sales rep suggested the number to use but I wish we had more for peace of mind, better to buy more than not enough.

The reason we chose Tuin was that it was an excellent product, good value and the blogs that guided us through everything related to the build.
We decided on a timber frame after reading the blog on the alternatives. After putting down heavy paving blocks on sand, it seemed that using the base pads was a logical (and easy) way to get the base level.
Worked a treat and I would use the same method to do another base.
Chloe was easy to build. No dramas in the whole construction process.. Thank you Richard and thank you Tuin.
