We absolutely love our Trev Clockhouse log cabin. The quality is outstanding and it was incredibly easy to build. We did it ourselves, the most difficult part was the roof and shingles because of the pitch of the roof, but we managed. We went for the 70mm thick cabin and insulated the floor and ceiling ourselves, which has given us a really sturdy, warm, comfortable room that we can use all year round. Can't recommend this cabin highly enough.

I can't recommend this product enough. The Trevor Clockhouse (70mm) is beautifully made and engineered to perfection. every piece supplied was perfect and the wood is of exceptional quality. All lengths (some nearly 6 metres long) were made of one single piece of timber and were straight. The kit slots together brilliantly, and while you need to be pretty confident with your DIY skills and have a few tools, it's completely manageable. The supplied plans are great and really easy to work from. We invested a lot of time in getting the base solid, square and precisely level which paid huge dividends in the build as everything just slotted together. As you can tell, we are delighted. Excellent value for money, great company to deal with, superb product, love our new log cabin!
Tuin reply: Thanks Andrew for the great feedback and installation pictures,

Also for your amazing video which can be found on the Trev clockhouse product page

A lovely sturdy log cabin assembled by my son who received all the advise needed from Tuin helpline It has been admired by all my neighbours and people from village coming along for a peek My son said that the olny thing he would have liked was a paper plan along with the kit otherwise it was straightforward to erect. ( apart from the square peg in the round hole which took a bit of figuring out ) Happy with the cabin its my work space and has been finished with Osmo oil which looks good

I bought this cabin 2 years ago and it was the best move we ever did, we had a log burner fitted and it’s great to sit in and relax at weekend and evenings, we had it assembled by Phil Ozario and the quality of the materials are second to none.

We did our homework before we made the decision and I can honestly say Tuin deco are the best on the market.

So if your thinking of making a life changing purchase do it with this company you wont be disappointed.

I am delighted with my Trev Clockhouse, it is well made and looks lovely. At last!. The only reason this review is a 4 rather than a 5 is because it took Tuin SEVEN MONTHS to deliver it. The wait was stressful and because it is to be my office, it was most inconvenient. I appreciate that Covid/Brexit cause some delay but over half a year is ridiculous.
Tuin reply: Thank you for your feedback and we're pleased the extra long wait was worth it in the end.

We completley agree, that was far too long to wait and we thank you for choosing to continue with the order instead of cancelling. We did have big problems with covid and then the subsequent timber shortage that followed.

hopefully now she's up you can finally continue enjoying the building

I cannot express the delight every morning on opening the curtains- My Tev clockhouse has been up nearly two years. We built it 2 years ago over a long weekend its treated inside and out with their wood treatment as I wanted it natural looking, it hsasnt changed in colour slightly more honey than the bare spruce after two years in sun snow and rain. No leaks no splits no sticky windows or doors
The floor was treated with Dulux diamond varnish.
It contains a gym in one side and more importantly a bar in the right hand side I suspended a floor above the bar held on joist hanger metal work, So it all is at it were supported all on one ring of timber not fixed across the logs.
Brilliant quality of the wood used in the construction has shown over the time in no splits sags or log grooves blowing out only now has the occasional spider web to be found inside.
Yes not the cheapest on the market but worth the extra cost - you only buy one once

Absolutely delighted with this product. It came neatly packaged and was fairly easily to navigate through if you take your time and read the instructions carefully. I pretty much did the whole build myself with only a little help on the roof members and the whole thing went together like a dream. You can tell it is quality timber that is being used and i am so glad i went chose Tuin for my cabin.

Overall, I am delighted with the finished product, and therefore any constructive criticisms are relative.

Delivery : superb. The driver was extremely helpful, and was determined to place the delivery where I wanted it, despite the difficulties. First class.
Two huge "packages". Unpacking takes a long time, and you need a lot of storage space. The last items needed, are the roof boards and floor boards. So why pack these

among everything else ? Would be so much better, if these were packed, wrapped and shipped separately.

The packing list is only 90% more physical sorting and detective work needed to identify all the components. Some are labelled, some not.
The instructions are very basic. Diagrams only. Some written explanation would have helped. No instructions re the clock tower. Good luck in working out how to build this !
Tuin reply: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we have to pack everything for the benefit of a low cost delivery. The buildings are not packed for installation as this only takes place once in the buildings life. The packages are designed for minimal delivery costs and in most cases a free delivery is offered.

If you would like us to re-pack for installation we are of course happy to do this at cost.

With all our buildings and orders we send you the link to: this is also referenced from every log cabin page and also the written instructions sent with every log cabin. This page will give you every bit of information you need if the plans are not sufficient. It also links to many other articles for the very finest detail of a log cabin build including the clock house part.

It is very hard to design instructions for a complete, non DIY unskilled customer compared to a fully skilled customer. This is why we offer so much information on the site. We also offer a comprehensive customer help service on the phone both during normal working hours but also out of hours to assist with any problem you may have.

90% of the time the build is easy and straightforward with the plans supplied. If you have need of further information you can follow the link we sent you and shown on every page or contact us at any time and we can help you.

After looking at many rival cabins I decided on the Tuin version and very glad I did. Brilliant from order to completion. Very helpful staff in the office and the delivery driver was very skilled in getting the large package onto the property. Their recommended installers were friendly and did a great job putting it all up including the base. So much so I've already rebooked for another project. The Cabin quality is as good as hoped, solid, warm and no defects at all. I'm over the moon with it.
