Thankfully the weather improved. I construction 3 months after taking delivery, despite the very wet weather, one of the wettest January every, there was no water ingress and all timbers dry, although there were numerous split logs which didn't matter to me as I put them on the inside.
Construction was rapid on a very level solid concrete base. I took my time with the roof, laying under felt (2 rolls from b&q 1x10m £40) them fixing 50mmx50mm treated batons, then covering witn 50mm Quinntherm
(celotex eqiv), then laid 11mm osb board on top, tben the roof shingles. If you are going to install gutters allow emough overhang. I used 2 boards from the delivery pallet, planned and sanded as facia boards to hang the gutters from, it give a good finish as you don't the roof boards or the batons. I used 2 shingles on the leading edge on top of the underfelt and stick tnem together using shingle glue Sitefix, it gives a good ridgid finish.
The only components I was dissapointed with was the roof apex which was badly cut and the window mechanism which was badly made.
You really do not need to pay to have this cabin constructed by a tradesman, providing the base is level and square you won't have any problems. I didn't rush the construction, the roof, the wood treatment, 3 applications inside and out, and roof boards all treated using Barretine wood preservative.
After researching other cabin suppiers I found this is the best log cabin manufactuer on the market.

I ordered this Cabin way before the COVID-19 lock downs, with plans to build over the Bank holiday weekend. It arrived on time as planned and as promptly as Tuin had said it would, unfortunately it didn't fit onto my drive way, but with some help from the family we shifted this into the back garden. It was packed onto the pallet superbly, these guys must be great at Tetris! Anyway, as per my plan this cabin was build over the BH weekend, only issue... due to the lock down I pretty much did this build by myself. I was surprised how quickly it went up. I had 2 twisted logs, but with the wealth of helpful instructions on their website, this was dealt with ease. I would recommend reading through their helpful hints and blogs before you buy. I chose Tuin because of how much information they provide and the reviews they have received. There were cheaper cabins, but to be fair I think the quality is great and some other competitors were way over priced in comparison. All in all, I am very pleased with my cabin and side shed. Thank you Tuin!

Having spent weeks researching log cabins from different manufacturers, I eventually decided on the ‘Rorik’ cabin from Tuin.
It came down to price, style, and helpfulness of the staff in Tuin headquarters that finally made my choice.
I was not disappointed with the high quality of the delivery but also with the high quality of the product, everything fitted perfectly, with no twisted or warped logs, even on the 4m long logs.
I decided to insulate the roof on the outside of the supplied roof boards, this turned out to be relatively easy, using locally bought timber to make a frame on the roof then OSB boards before the shingles.
The shingles were easy, if time consuming, to fit and really finish off the cabin.
I can thoroughly recommend Tuin as a company to deal with and of its products.

Excellent product, well worth the money. Easy to assemble In a short period of time.
Nothing missing and if anything there was extra pieces just incase.
Would definitely recommend . Also excellent customer service keeping you up to date when the product was going to arrive.
