Log cabin bases with installation
If you prefer, we can provide log cabins with installation of just the foundations. We can lay foundation bases for your log cabin to be built on, to ensure your log cabin has a sturdy start in life. We offer a variety of log cabin bases to suit your requirements and budget.
You can choose solid concrete bases or timber framed bases, depending on your preferences. Remember, if you are adding a veranda or deck to your log cabin then you will need to incorporate the size of this into the overall dimensions of your finished log cabin kit, before we lay the base.

As timber is a natural product minor adjustments, when the building settles, may have to be carried out by the customer. Adjustments may be needed to the doors and windows as they may drop, expand and contract over the season. Alternatively, adjustments can be carried out on a chargeable basis by our installation teams.
We strongly recommend that you treat any exposed timber within a week of installation and install guttering within 14 days of installation. Your warranty may be affected if you fail to adhere to this advice. Please see our Terms & Conditions (Warranty) for full details.
Polite Notice: In most cases we do take the packaging with us after an installation. However, in some situations where our teams are moving on to another install it may not always be possible and customers are required to dispose of the packaging themselves after installation.
Care tips for your cabin
Your log cabin installation can last a lifetime if it is well cared for. We have put together a few tips that will help prolong the lifespan of your log cabin, so that you can enjoy it for years to come.
- Stain or seal your log cabin with a quality wood preservative within 7 days of installation. Generally the more expensive wood treatments are the best.
- The log cabin kit should be re-stained, re-sealed or re-painted every few years to continue the protecting level for the wood.
- Guttering is a necessity and we recommend rolled aluminium guttering as the best for log cabins and timber buildings. Do not use half sized shed guttering.
- Gutters should be cleaned regularly to ensure water can run away easily and the water is diverted away from the log cabin or timber building.
- The roof should be kept in good order and the roof shingles should be inspected annually.
- The cabin should be located away from damp areas or ground where water can collect or the base raised slightly to avoid sitting water, even if you have a concrete base.
- There must be adequate drainage away from the cabin.
- Use a water seal such as Watershield, Evostick or Thomas to keep leaks at bay.
- Keep the cabin well ventilated to help prevent condensation build up.
