Delivery fantastic, 4.5m long logs and pallet deftly placed right next to the build site. Rhon Log Cabin chosen for dual-purpose convenience: storage area and workshop. Can be built either way round, although single door opens onto left double door unless it is re-hung on the left of the doorframe. Build was ok, the devil is in the detail and a certain amount of common-sense required - for example we had a treated foundation layer of logs the cabin was resting on, which meant that door frames have to be trimmed to fit. The batons for the flooring and many of the flooring planks were misshapen and bent which meant the flooring was difficult to install evenly. Instructions not bad but not Ikea-like in their clarity, some experience is necessary in basic joinery to see the project through. Website much better and with plentiful good advice, having to cross-check everything on a laptop slowed the process somewhat. That said, the result is fantastic and we're delighted. Worth the extra money for the Easy Roof Membrane and Carefree Protectant (clear - why hide the attractive natural finish?) Running in power and network next.

There are quite a few companies to choose from for log cabins but based on reviews and the abundance of info on the website I decided to go with Tuin - and am I glad I did.

All the positive reviews are spot on: Delivery was excellent with the forklift having to be used to bring it to my property. I spent several hours unpacking and sorting out the various parts that I think was time well spent when it came to the build. The quality of the timber is excellent and so well made that it was a breeze building it and that’s from an average DIY’er. I had to contact the help desk a couple of times more for reassurance I was doing things correctly rather than any major problem and my questions were answered within minutes – it’s just a brilliant service.

I don’t think I’ve had so much enjoyment building something since my last airfix kit many moons ago.

For various reasons I haven’t fully completed it yet (just doors to hang on and painting) so no pictures yet. I would guess doing it yourself singlehanded at a fairly leisurely pace you could have it done in 2 or 3 days. The smaller room is perfect for storing all my garden chairs, loungers etc. with the main area of a good size to do whatever you want with it (I haven’t been told what yet!).

The biggest headache I’ve had is what colour to paint it. We are going to be using Sadolin and I think there are only about 300 colours to choose from After spending a small fortune on tester pots ‘we’ have finally decided on a colour. As its so difficult to make a choice based on a square inch of colour on a chart could I make a suggestion that if possible you start a gallery of completed builds giving details of what product/colour has been used.

All in all a great experience dealing with Tuin, would thoroughly recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Update: now finally finished and I have one teeny negative comment (but not enough to detract from 5 stars) The quality of the cross timber used for Georgian effect on window and doors is a fraction of the quality of all other wood so have decided to leave it off.

Just purchased the Rhon Cabin to use as a workshop and I'm very impressed with the quality. It was a breeze to erect and I hardly needed to use the rubber mallet to slot the sections together as they're so precise. It also looks great in the garden and I'm confident it will last many many years. A really solid cabin and worth every penny.

I seldom review products that I have bought but Tuins deserve the time and effort. Ordering was simple and efficient and communication following the process was exemplary. Questions were answered promptly and delivery information continued right up to the door. The delivery driver arrived down our narrow lane then placed the pallet right on the desired spot through a less than easy gateway and driveway.

As a carpenter/joiner I look for the best in wood products and Tuins did not let me down. The cabin is constructed from first grade spruce to a high-quality manufacturing process. I enjoyed assembling the cabin because of its quality.

Sorry there are no photographs yet as the cabin is shrouded in tarpaulins until the weather allows me to provide it with the protection it deserves.

I will recommend Tuin as a company to anyone that needs reassurance. Well done folks! Thank you.
