Received our Maria log kit on a cold December day as promised and as we have a very steep long drive fully expected it to be left at street level.
The delivery driver, bless him, actually made attempts to deliver at site level but alas it wasn't going to happen due to lack of traction on the steep incline.
With help from a neighbour together the two of us carried each item of the kit some 100 yards up the steep drive for storage in my garage til spring, an inventory was taken as well, all parts accounted for.
Come the new year and spring the build started, I segregated all items into seperate stacks in the garage for easy access and transfer out the rear door to a previously constructed concrete base.
With no prior experience or help I followed the instructions, did the measurements, squaring up and damp course, stacked logs to a level to where my daughter had to assist, we then stood the window and door frames in place and logs up to roof level before calling it a day.
Next day saw me on the roof installing the t&g boards
then the roll on self sticking roof which can be a bit tricky for the novice mainly because of the downright stickyness of the stuff!
Basically this 78 year old with no prior experience completed it in two days, easy peasy!

From start to finish I was impressed. Ordering online after conversation by phone and confirmation telephone call after me peace of mind. The cabin arrived on time arranged and the driver was efficient in getting it off the huge lorry and forklifted into and down my road. My two builders worked out how to build without too much trouble. I paid extra for roof and floor insulation and have given it two coats of protective paint. I have a brilliant art studio now and love it - thank you Tuin.

Delivery was as expected
Ring beam base was made from concrete blocks and screwed down scaffold planks...all levelled beforehand.
The packaged was opened at 9.30 and the cabin complete by 1400hrs.
Everything fitted as expected.
The floor was fitted later.
Was built as extra space for my 5 grandchildren ...they are now the coolest and most popular kids on the block.

We looked at a number of places before choosing Tuin after a positive recommendation from a friend. We weren't disappointed, the quality of the product was obvious from the off.
It was delivered on the back of a large truck, the driver parked it at the end of the street and skilfully put it in our back garden using his 3 wheeled forklift. Some very good driving there!

We hired some local joiners to build the cabin and it all went pretty smoothly. They built a wooden frame (we're on a slope) and insulated under the floor. The cabin sits on top and feels solid. It all went together surprisingly quickly once they had the first layer down and it was all but complete by the end of day one.
We've had a few serious downpours over the last few weeks and it's all perfectly watertight.

The wood for the cabin itself was of obvious high quality.

We bought the wooden floor too and it matches the cabin walls well. Same for the roof, though a few of the lengths had got mouldy. However, it wasn't bad and it wiped off with a few applications of water and a cloth.

The doors and windows fit well and seem to be waterproof. We've not added the cross bars to the windows, we much prefer the look with the large windows.

We bought the EPDM roofing and it looks great and seems to be perfectly waterproof so far. It went on top of the insulation pretty easily too and looks perfectly flat. We forgot about the guttering, but bought it from a local merchant and added that ourselves.

The joiners were very impressed with the overall quality and said that it made it much easier to put up than the previous ones they had done.

We've just painted it, added electricity and furniture, now we're fully ready to go...

Fantastic cabin. Put up by 3 complete amateurs. It is the talk of the neighbourhood.

We love it and it is better than we could ever have thought.

We took a long time to decide on where to get our log cabin from, however after reading all the reviews for Tuin we made the choice to order the Maria Log Cabin.
It was delivered on time as promised and with all the relevant instructions enclosed.
The actual construction of the log cabin was pretty straightforward once I had sorted the foundation beams and from there on it was like building a giant Lego house! Even my daughter joined in to help build it.
Once fully erected we could see how good the wood is as it is vey stable and even without paint looked amazing!
The only issue I have had is that a few of the logs were warped, so it is pulling the shape out a little, however I am dealing with this through the excellent customer service side of Tuin.

On the whole we would thoroughly recommend Tuin for their designs, ease of construction and customer service plus value for money.
