Five stars isn't praise enough for our brilliant Dellinger Log Cabin, we are delighted with our purchase!
Firstly let me say every interaction we have had we Tuin has been simple and hassle free, from ordering to asking questions to delivery. The prices are excellent value for money compared to any competitor, the website is packed with useful advice and videos, placing an order is so easy.
I was concerned that, as the delivery is by articulated vehicle only, the driver would struggle to get access to our house, we live on a large residential estate where the roads get obstructed with parked cars. This wasn't a problem, we were given a delivery date by Tuin and the driver called with an exact time, the truck has two rear steering axles and the driver was very competent, he had trouble at all! The forklift was able to get the large pallet exactly where we wanted it.
The build itself took two of us the equivalent of two days to construct, we are both competent with DIY and made sure we had all the right tools at hand. More importantly, we had a lot of fun building this!
My advice is definitely read the instructions (more than once) and watch the videos as many times as you can. Trust me, I thought I'd done enough reading and still had a couple of problems due to not paying attention.
Don't be intimidated by the prospect of tackling this yourself, there is no need to pay someone to build it for you. Take your time, identify all the parts before you start, treat the timber that you need to before assembly and keep referring to the instructions and enjoy yourself.
The log cabin is incredibly well packed together, unpack it just before you are going to assemble it and don't think any piece of wood is spare or is there just for packing, wait until you are finished building before you put any spare wood to use.
I would recommend that you consider buying Tuin's guttering if you need to have drainage, in fact I would suggest you make life simple and order any extras you need at the same time, you will save yourself time and money this way, Tuin are not expensive for extras.
We opted for standard roof felt which is better quality than any other UK expensive felt I've seen, if we could have afforded it I would have loved to have purchased the EDPM but I feel that the felt will be perfectly adequate.
We ordered two large tins of Tuin's Embadecor Treatment, it is so easy to work with and covers more area than you'd think, it's brilliant. Because we applied treatment to several parts before assembly we used quite a lot, we actually ended up using about three tins which gave us two coats on everything, three coats on certain areas.
In summary we are completely delighted and cannot recommend Tuin highly enough, you can order from them with absolute confidence. When we have finished adding the finishing touches I will upload pictures.

I’m really pleased with the completed log cabin. It looks great and gives us some extra space.
I was a bit concerned about the delivery as we have narrow access but the delivery driver was able to manoeuvre it expertly on the forklift to exactly where I wanted it, which was a massive help.
The cabin itself went up fairly easily, the videos on the website are quite helpful.
The only drawback was that it took more stain than I anticipated to give it the required 3 coats- had to order 3 more which were dispatched quickly- the embadecor stuff is not cheap but is clearly good quality.
Overall I’m very pleased with the service received from Tuin.
