Having just moved house I had to leave my man cave behind so I was looking to replace it in our new house.
After many weeks of searching and comparing on the web I decided to purchase from Tuin and I was not disappointed. The quality and the finish on the cabin is amazing, I don't know how they can do it for this price.
From start to finish with the help of my mate and neither of us having ever done anything like this before it took us three days to assemble. The shell went up in no time at all, the most time consuming bit was the roof which took us a couple of days.
Quality cabin, excellent and friendly service from Tuin, thank you very much I am delighted.

This is the second cabin of this sort I have purchased. The first at a previous property was fantastic. The quality and fitting was top grade. I am, to be honest, less impressed with my second. The wood quality and fitting was not to the standard previously experienced. I had purchased during a sale and the quality seems to reflect this cheeper price. That said it is still a very impressive cabin just a little disappointed this time

Wow, so refreshing to deal with a friendly, professional and helpful company!
Excellent web site and variety of products offering great value. Staff members I spoke to on the phone were very friendly and helpful, unfortunately I had to cancel my first order but this was dealt with courteously and efficiently. I have since placed another order which has been processed and delivered efficiently, although the delivery driver from Walpoles was grumpy :(
I had a good look around before making my decision to purchase from Tuin and have a major competitor of theirs on my doorstep, I was swayed by the very good feedback from customers, the excellent website and the personal feel when dealing with the staff. Well done to Karen and the team for delivering excellent customer service, I heartily recommend Tuin.
Although I have not built the cabin yet I am confident that it will be a great product and impressed with the amount of information provided on the web site.
Thanks for the double glazing upgrade :)
I will send pictures when the cabin is built.
All the best,

Excellent service from Tuin, delivered when it was supposed to. Quality of the truss cabin is excellent also, the only issue was the instructions weren't the best but even without instructions the 6x5m shed went up well and was built over the weekend. Would definitely recommend Tuin.

I am delighted with my Truus cabin which I purchased to create a large woodturning workshop. With the help of two friends the main structure was up in one day. It was very easy to construct. A giant Lego set really. The printed instructions were adequate but I had already studied the videos on the website which are great as is Richards blog so I had a good idea of how it goes up. I had no issues with missing or damaged items apart from a window frame which had come apart at a corner which I easily fixed. All components fitted perfectly. I invested in the immersion treatment which looks good and hopefully will extend the life of the cabin. A nice touch was the inclusion of a tub of the same preservative to treat any wood that had to be cut. All in all I now have a really solid, well made cabin which I look forward to using for years to come. I would happily recommend Tuin to anyone.

fantastic piece of kit ,that transforms into a great unit as a playroom,workshop or just a general storeroom .
This is the 2nd log cabin i have purchased and erected myself .
I do have assistance to erect it but they are easy to build ,it took me 4 hours to set up framework up to ridge beam , a further day and a half to fit roof tongue and groove timbers and shingles . another 5 hours to fit joists and flooring timbers .
i advice anyone self erecting these cabins ,to make sure the base is completely flat and level and advice using the composite sills available .

Ordered a Truus 5.95 by 5 mtr log cabin , slight delay due to notification going to my spam box and unseen ,maybe a phone call as well , good idea ?
Delivery and off loading excellent , working on my own , took two weeks to complete but considering the size of the log cabin and my young 73 years of age not bad
The quality of the components and design excellent , and good value for money .
The instructions don't match the above and could do to be better , also not enough nails supplied.
But delighteded with the log cabin

The Truus log cabin has proved to be excellent value and ideal as my new Woodworking Workshop. It looks good, the quality is good and the service was good. I am very pleased with the results.

Amazing service, we thought we may have had a problem with unloading as we are on the A82 in Scotland, but the driver was fab, unloaded with out a problem and moved the cabin as close as he could to the site.
The cabin arrived on Wednesday early evening so we started to build it on Thursday... by Saturday I had started to paint it. It was fab to put together... like a large jigsaw puzzle. ( it made it easier to write all the corresponding numbers on the Wood first, this took a couple of hours but saved lots of time)
Door was a bit fiddly but with slight adjustment it was fine.
Looking forward to getting our log burner in and making it cosy.

Firstly, the cabin arrived well communicated, on-time and well packaged.

I was immediately impressed by the quality of the timber and surprised by the ease and speed (roof aside) I was able to build the Truus. The cabin looks great, feels extremely solid and offers great value for money when compared to other companies equivalents.

I purchased a Tuin cabin to use as a gym in our back garden. It needed to be big enough to fit all the equipment in and have room to move around inside. We chose the Truus log cabin. Ordering was easy and communications from Tuin were excellent; plenty of notice was given when delivery would be. The delivery driver phoned the night before to ensure the next days delivery would be hassle free. Our house is one mile up a single lane country road with only the odd passing please and so the full track used would be unable to reach us without some difficulty. However, our delivery driver off loaded the pack and used the folk lift all the way from the main road....what a fantastic service. The pack was carefully placed on the drive exactly where I wanted it and was undamaged.
The cabin was built on a concrete slab and went up effortlessly. All joints are tight fitting and the cutting is very accurate allowing us to self construct in very little time. The cabin “shell” went up in 2 leisurely days. The free felt singles are of good quality and look good too.
I chose to use Osmo products to treat the wood against the elements as this was recommended by my son who has experience with external quality timber construction. It also worked out significantly cheaper then the products recommended on the Tuin website.
I only have 2 adverse comments. One would be that the instructions supplied could be clearer, and secondly the door handle square shaft isn’t long enough, so I’ll have to source a replacement.
In conclusion, a quality log cabin at a good price with excellent support from Tuin.
Thank you!

Superb company and delivery was quicker than expected. Components are an accurate fit and well made. The cabin was easy to erect (6m x 5m) on my own and only took two days total. Couple of spares needed (delivery damage on way from Holland) and these were dispatched very quickly. Very, very impressed.

Hi, I purchased a Truus Log Cabin in Dec, I did a lot of searching on the internet and found Tuin, a very good site, the cabin was very easy to order and delivery was on time, due to its size it took me all day to move from kerbside to back of garden(100ft) would be worth getting a couple of extra hands! it is easy to put together two of us had it up and roof boards on in one day, but don't forget it needs shingles and treatment, this I will do in the new year. the main points to bear in mind is a LEVEL Base and check the footprint size of cabin before laying base, everything you need is on web site or give them a call. Overall very pleased.

Following many weeks searching for our ideal cabin Tuin came out tops by a mile and the reason for this is:- Very helpful staff at any level/department and I would say the best I have ever had the pleasure to do business with. They keep you informed al the way through your purchase even down to the driver personally ringing you on the movement and estimated delivery time.
Everything was perfect and proffessional company,so glad I chose them. S orry can not tell you how the cabin is as it has rained since it got here and I have not got the heart to get it wet. Thankyou so much Team and I will be most certainly using you again.

We are very pleased with the Truus Log Cabin. Excellent quality, very happy that it now comes with Double Glazed windows as standard. The fitting by one of the listed installers (Phil) was amazing, looking forward to having it painted in a light grey.

Fantastic from start to finish! The delivery driver was very helpful and managed to drop the large package right next to where is was going to be built. We decided to use fitters recommended by Tuin. Warren and Stuart were fantastic. Couldn't be happier with their work. Customer service was excellect throughout. 5 stars all day long.

I purchased a Truus log cabin from Tuin and found it a very simple transaction. The staff in Norfolk were extremely helpfull with any of my questions. The actual build was very simple after the initial start with all the wood joints fitting perfectly. The cabin main structure was finished within 7 hours and the remaining bits and pieces completed in another 3 hours. The roof shingles took another whole day. Now all I have to do is paint the wood. I have chosen silver birch. All in all a good experience. I would highly recommend Tuin to any of my friends or neighbours, all down to great service! And good service.

The cabin arrived as described and was easy to sort into sections. I couldn't believe how easy it went together I thought I was doing something wrong!!

We put the cabin up in 1 day including the roof planks. It took another day to put all the shingles on, only because I was on my own.

My friends are really impressed and 3 are looking to purchase similar products.

I can't praise the product and company enough. 5 STARS

Very happy with our log cabin from Tuin. The delivery driver Steve was friendly and helpful, bringing the large package down our narrow street for the last quarter mile on the forklift!
Tuin recommended Warren Young for installation - A good price and very professional, the cabin was watertight on day one, and finished with floor laid by the end of day two. Highly recommended if you don’t have the time to do it yourself.

I decided to purchase my new log cabin from Tuin and I was not disappointed. The delivery was arranged and came as planned, and the driver helped put the package in an easy space to in pack.
The packing was superb, and very easy to work out, in truth it's like a large 3d puzzle, but much easier.
The shell took 9 hours to complete, with the shingles and floor took a further 9 hours.
The quality of the cabin is of a high standard, and I now have my sports bar in full flow.
I will be buying an add on shed in due course, and also to intend to get a hot tub put on the side. And I will be buying from Tuin.

Thanks to all the team at Tuin for providing such an easy system and set up, and the videos are also great.

Took delivery of my Truus log cabin on Wed 15/08/15 - Delivery driver was very courteous and helpful. Took about 2 hours to unpack, check and take down to my rear garden. Started installation the next day, from 8.30am until 2.30pm we completed the build to the point where the cabin just required the roof boards and shingles to put on. Due to the size of the cabin (5.95x5.0) this took quite a while to complete (2 days). I have just finished 3 coats of weather treatment inside and out. The cabin went together very well and now looks stunning. After a poor experience with another company last year, I was very apprehensive about ordering this cabin with all the potential issues surrounding twisting, bowing and poorly machined logs, especially on such a large building?

I am highly delighted with the cabin and all the effort to construct was well worth it.

Thank you very much.

My log cabin 5m x 6m was delivered on the Monday took me most of the night to get it through the house to the back garden . Tuesday when I came home from work I started building it , 2.5 hrs same on Wednesday,the cabin was built Thursday I put the roof cladding on . Saturday I put 50mm insulation with 6 mm ply over the top today I'm starting the Shinges. The cabin went up so easy it's like Lego , all my neighbour s are impressed ,hence probably would of done I quicker if they didn't keep talking to me lol. Looks brilliant at the moment and that's with out the Shinges on and timber stained , I have two friends whom are looking at buying one and a neighbour. Would recommend to anyone so easy to put up ,hardest thing was which way the door frame went round , wife sorted that one out .
