Zutphen Log Cabin Tuin Review

Stuart ….. ‘The log cabin builder extraordinaire’ as he now refers to himself was kind enough to send in this story of his journey with his new building.  This is the Zutphen Log Cabin with a 28mm Log Cabin Annexe fitted to the side

We have included all of the pictures that were kindly shared with us as well as his helpful comments as he installed his 28mm Log Cabin.

We at Tuin LOVE this sort of thing as it brings the installation journey to life. For not only us in the office, but more importantly the for the public to get a better understanding of the whole process.

Here’s our ‘journey’ hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as we enjoyed our ‘Tuin experience’ of the zutphen log cabin
So this is before. As you can see we don’t have the biggest garden in the world all i can say is measure twice.!!
We read all about the importance of the base from your website ..full of good advice.We made sure the base was perfectly level beforehand.

Stuart went on to say:

It is such a pleasure  to deal with a company which has morals and high values, so often these days this is not the case so anything we can do to spread the word is our pleasure.
We have of course already told everyone who will listen about our cabin experience so it will be good to spread the word even further.
In fact as you pointed out so few people actually take the time to reply or provide any feedback, when we were looking at your website the thing we found most useful was looking in the gallery and at your straight talking blog at the cabins that people have already installed

Thank you Stuart …’Log Cabin builder extraordinaire’ we love seeing our customer progress through the journey. We hope you have a great summer with your new building and hope the camera and offers were well received.
