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 Modern Log Cabin with a 28mm Log Cabin Annexe fitted to the side

Here’s our ‘journey’ hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as we enjoyed our ‘Tuin experience’
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.

 All stacked and ready to start..
Tea break..
Roof going on ….no problem !

Day 2 ..wood treated and extra storage built on.
Installed, treated and ready to work on the inside …almost finished.
Steel profile sheet then  foam blocks on top for added insulation with inch ply boards on top.
Finished floor with electrics installed as well.
Tools needed for the carpet which went down a treat
Time for a relax and a cup of tea !!

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.

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
