Absolutely fabulous cabin. Really exceptional quality. The timber is really thick and the cabin is extremely substantial. It is now a fantastic addition to both the house (extra room) and garden (fortress of solitude). Tuin provided outstanding customer service from start to finish.Thankyou Tuin!

I'm absolutely delighted with my cabin!!!

Everything was very efficient - delivery worked well with the small forklift and it's big parcel - and thanks to extra help with construction on the website everthing went up really smoothly...

No complaints so i give it a 5 stars to service and 5 stars for the product that arrived :-)

It's all insulated and has electric now and im using it as a meditaion / therapy / training space - its truly lovely.

As a first time customer with tuin I can honestly say it has been a great experience from start to finish product was without a doubt a great design and easy to install delivery came earlier which was a bonus this was an option if I wanted customer service again was faultless eager to help and understanding with helpful advice being that I'm not a general builder or carpenter I have completed almost my cabin by myself apart from the apex
Overall great service great product would recommend to all

I spent 8 months, on and off researching the net for a log cabin to use as a workshop in the garden of our new property. Tuin, (notably Richard) provided the best information on the net about what to look for, what to consider and how to apply it. After some email correspondence with Richard, I chose a cabin that would fit on an existing concrete slab in my garden. However, Richard, bless him, offered me a similar cabin, (slightly smaller but with a large balcony), that was old stock and water damaged, but at a bargain price. I was confident in Richard's choice so I took his offer. The cabin is called the Louisiana. It is the same as the Ipswich with one exception; the logs are 50mm, not 58mm. I read all Richard's advice and watched the videos before starting on the unpacking and the build. I decided I'd apply preservative to the timber before building the cabin so the timber would get an even coat, everywhere, especially in the joints. That was a mammoth task but in doing so I realised that only half of the cabin had been delivered... Richard immediately arrange d for the second half of the delivery and I managed to preserve the new batch before we started the erection. I arranged for a skilled mate to come and help. Once we sorted the base levels, (which took a day), we got the shed up (in the rain) in half a day. The roof took most of the time; nailing 162 roof boards and applying the shingles.
I've had problems stopping the rain getting under the foundation beams because the concrete slab is old and a bit friable but the cabin now looks fantastic and the space inside is great. It is extremely well built and I am amazed at the level of detail that is applied to the machining of the timber. As Richard says, trust the plan, keep looking at it whilst your building the cabin and it will all work fine. He's quite right. I'm chuffed to bits with it. I would heartily recommend anyone, looking for a log cabin, to get it from Tuin.

The build went very well. You are quite right. It is easy(relatively) if you keep looking at the plans.... the cabin looks fantastic. It occupies much more space than originally envisaged but that's a good thing and the build quality is excellent. I'm chuffed to bits with it. Thank you for all your help and advice whilst I was chewing on the options. I'm particularly pleased that I went with Tuin. It's very difficult making a choice such as this without touching the product, and having to rely on the marketing stuff on the websites. Your blogs make the difference.

The good things:
High quality logs, accurately machined.
The logs were easy to assemble once the foundation beams were in the correct place and the piles of timber were sorted appropriately.
Richard and Karen were very helpful.
The delivery came before 7am and the fork lift was able to position the pallets in an awkward spot right in front of the house.
Impressive looking log cabin for the price.
Sikkens Cetol Novatech Woodstain is quick to apply and looks good.
The not so good things:
Finding someone to level the ground and do the concrete base.
The written instructions and drawings could be clearer and a few more pictures would help.
Treating the timber and allowing it to dry (Don't mention the weather!).
The window handles were stiff and a screw holding the catch plate had broken off.
The complete windows and frame is very heavy and hard to move into position. It probably needed dismantling.
Apart from these minor problems, the log cabin is brilliant. Thanks
