Dagmar Log Cabin Inspiration

These are my most favourite posts and this time I will not even make comments as the pictures speak for themselves.  I LOVE customer feedback – Mr Staveley wrote to me earlier today:

“I bought a log cabin from you in the middle of last year, thought you might like to see the build slide show, attached.
I thought you may be interested as I am 79 and apart from a friend helping me with the roof boards I built in all myself.  Shows that if a 79 year old can build it anyone can!
Having seen our cabin two people have bought from you ……”

I very much enjoyed seeing these pictures …. an inspiration of what can be accomplished with vision and some hard work. This is our Dagmar Corner Log Cabin and Mr Staveley’s journey to complete it.

The final finished Dagmar corner log cabin after so much work, inspiration and time

A really amazing journey and transformation, I love seeing these pictures and the story built around it. We’ve sent Mr Staveley an option of various gifts as a thank you, I think he may opt for the lLog cabin planters but regardless I thank the gentleman greatly for making my job a little more worthwhile and enjoyable.

I especially loved that Mr Staveley has perhaps taken some ideas from my Timber frame base idea for log cabins.

About Richard

This blog is my personal platform which I do enjoy. It is my own viewpoint and my own ideas. I may not be right and other installers / experts may offer a different view point or a alternative way to do something. I welcome contributions from anybody experienced to do so.

All my blog writing is MY OWN personal opinion ONLY and is NOT always the opinion of TUIN | TUINDECO as a company.

Log Cabins and Garden timber have a myriad of intricacies , I love to give away the secrets, there are a lot!

I enjoy using this blog to expose them so you know what you are buying. I love to know I am causing a few problems in the industry as it can be on occasions less than honest.

I actively encourage everyone to install their own buildings. So many times I would fit and the company I was working for would charge loads for my time, only then to be faced with the embarrassment when the customer says 'I could have done that' and YES you can without paying hundreds of Pounds!

I have over 19 years experience within the garden timber industry. I have particular expertise in garden buildings including the manufacture, design and installation from sheds to log cabins and all the way up to timber framed houses.

In my time I have been involved with virtually every manufacturer and supplier of garden buildings. I have also installed pretty much every make of Garden Building there is from ALL suppliers and manufacturers.

Prior to my career change I was a Watch Commander in the Fire Service with particular expertise in chemical incidents, training, technical design / technology / IT /Procedures / ISO Systems and road traffic accidents. I retired due to a nasty injury after 20 years service.

During my time in the Fire Service, on my days off, I was a self employed fitter for any type of garden building, I worked with most of the well known companies as a subcontractor.

I now work with Tuin | Tuindeco in the UK, supporting and advising on the vast range of products. I keep an eye out for help requests when we a supposed to be closed and can usually get back to you out of hours via email only (wife and children permitting on my days off).

In my private life I consult as an independent expert assessor for companies or private individuals when a dispute is present over their structure which results in producing an impartial report and assessment for whoever requires it. This is often higher valued than a structural engineers report born from my credentials, experience and widely recognised as an 'Expert' in the field.

I am a freelance writer for numerous companies, publications and blogs as well as an independent expert and fault finder for parts of the Industry and consumers with a particular emphasis on timber structures, both framed and of an interlocking design such as log cabins.

I produce numerous articles about timber in general, information on general timber products and specific guides when needed. I hope you enjoy and find my writing useful.

Please contribute and comment to my posts as you would like and I will try to respond as best I can.

Thank you

Well done Mr Staveley – Truly inspirational stuff.
