Description

The 10 x 12 Wykenham Log Cabin from Shire is probably our most stunning, eye-catching design. With a distinctive roof style, which we are confident is truly unique to the Wykenham, this stylish cross between a pent and a reverse apex roof has drawn many customers to this cabin over the years. Plus, the Wykenham has a number of features which are usually only offered as upgrades on most log cabins, including 34mm thick walls, toughened glass windows and doors plus 19mm thick tongue and groove roofing and flooring. All this ensures that the Wykenham really is in a different class.

At elbec, we are confident that our log cabins are the perfect way to make the most of your unused garden space and provide a wonderful spot to relax in comfort all year round.

Ways to Make the Most of Your Wykenham Log Cabin

You are always spoilt for choice with ways you can make the most of a log cabin, and the Wykenham allows you to do so in considerable style. Bringing loads of new, usable space to your garden, you will be provided with the perfect new spot to relax in the beautiful surroundings of the outdoors. As a picturesque location to enjoy dinner or drinks with loved ones, the Wykenham gives you an excellent new spot that is sure to become a favourite place to spend your time. If it’s a cosy little corner of your garden you want to unwind, a log cabin would also be perfect. A space to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, especially once you adorn it with your favourite (or perhaps your most comfortable) furnishings, you will soon find yourself unwinding after a long day or on a lazy afternoon.

Alternatively, many people purchase a log cabin as a place for working or for pursuing their hobbies, especially if they have run out of space in their homes. Not only could you set it up as a quiet and pleasant home office, you might consider using the space as an inspiring art studio or even as a stylish music practice room! We’re sure you don’t need us how to make the most of your new log cabin, but we are confident that the Wykenham will quickly become a much-loved addition to your home.

Why Others Tell Us They Love the Wykenham

The Wykenham is a truly stunning log cabin design and there is nothing quite like it available elsewhere at such a fantastic price. Customers’ eyes are immediately drawn to the unique roof design, which is a cross between two of the most popular, contemporary roof styles; reverse apex and pent. The off-centre ridge that results from this marriage of styles gives the Wykenham a distinctive, striking look. Plus, with a fully-glazed front and large side windows, the cabin boasts one of the brightest interiors you will find, allowing buckets of natural light to flood in. This also ensures that you will have panoramic views of your beautiful garden when you are inside. You can also choose to include a picturesque terrace on your Wykenham Log Cabin, a popular choice for many of our past customers when looking for the garden building of their dreams.

The generous headroom inside makes it feel extra-spacious, with thick roof beams rounding off the elegant interior space. This ensures spending time inside is a real pleasure. Proper, handcrafted joinery is used on all windows and doors to add a final touch of class to the appearance of this stylish, stunning log cabin. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their log cabins and they look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Wykenham look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. Whether you love bold, bright colours or a more natural wood finish, Protek have a colour to suit any taste.

Features

Shire only manufactures log cabins that are built to last and the Wykenham is no exception to that rule. Overlapping corners and four-way corner joints give the building fantastic strength and ensure it will stay standing for years to come. In addition, the Wykenham boasts several premium features when compared to many standard Shire Log Cabins. It comes with toughened glass windows, which provide a stronger, safer pane and additional insulation for the interior. The Shire draught seal system fitted on all the windows and doors further increases the inside’s protection from the elements. You can also choose to upgrade to double glazing for a surprisingly reasonable price given the amount of glazing on the Wykenham. This will ensure the interior is extra-cosy all year round.

On top of this, the Wykenham is supplied with 34mm thick wall logs as standard, compared to the 19mm or 28mm logs supplied with most cabins. Although this should provide enough insulation to keep the interior warm all year round, many customers opt to upgrade to 44mm or 70mm thick wall logs to really make the interior a warm and inviting space, whatever the weather. Quality floor and roof insulation using Celotex is also available as an optional extra so you can make the most of your log cabin at any time of year.

The Wykenham boasts a 19mm thick tongue and groove roof and floor as part of its excellent, overall package. This ensures you will have a roof that will have no problem standing up to the worst of the British weather and a floor that can withstand heavy loads. You can purchase and construct your log cabin in the confidence that all Shire Log Cabins can be dismantled and rebuilt should you ever decide to move. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your log cabin quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the log cabin and construct it yourself.

About the Timber

You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber log cabin starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your log cabin. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Siberia and Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's log cabins is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers used on log cabins. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

Base

It is important that the base for your log cabin is firm and level. You can request 'Guidelines for Preparing a Concrete Base' through our 'Contact Us' Section.

Wykenham FAQs

What size log cabin do I need?
We would always recommend that your decision making is based on the biggest log cabin you can afford. It will of course need to fit in the space you have allocated without any restrictions. You will find that just like a house, you will always find use for the space. Of course size and space will come down to what you will potentially use the Log Cabin for ie Garden Office, Games Room, Hobby Room or for Dining. We also have Log Cabins with multi rooms. We offer a made to measure and design service where you can dictate your own log cabin size and design.

What should I consider when choosing a location for my log cabin?
Unlike some Log Cabins with Shire Log Cabins you actually build the cabin from the inside but you will need enough room to be able to assemble the roof and treat the external walls. We would therefore recommend that your log cabin should ideally have a clear space of at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. We know that this can sometimes be an issue and therefore a reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. When considering your space around your log cabin (particularly where there are space constraints) remember to allow for any roof overhang. You should also clear the area of any nearby shrubs and trees and remember to allow for future growth. If possible a sheltered position is better.

Do Shire Import their Log Cabins?
No!
Shire Log Cabins are not imported they are machined logged here in the UK. There are many advantages to this notwithstanding the logs will fit together first time which is not always the case for imported log cabins. First of all in the unlikely event of needing parts these are readily available and you would not have to wait weeks for replacement parts as you would if the log cabin was imported. Secondly as they are built in the UK any technical advice you may need is also readily available.

What is the best way to prepare a base for my Log Cabin?
All log cabins require a well prepared, solid, flat, level concrete base to ensure a long lasting and stable installation. It should have a very slight fall to prevent water laying on it. We do not recommend slab and / or shingle bases as an uneven base or subsequent settling will cause excessive strain and may damage your building. Guidelines for preparing a base are issued subsequent to placing an order and are also available upon request.

What tools do I need to build my Log Cabin?
Good quality DIY hand tools, such as: Drills, Hammer, Pozidrive Screwdriver (Electric), Rubber Mallet, Sand Paper, Cutting Knife, Tape Measure, Step Ladder, Pencil, Saw, Damp Proof Strip, Silcone Sealant, Oil for Lock, Level and Ball of String (to check the diagonals).
Please Note: The only cutting which is required on a Shire Log Cabin is the final roof, floorboards, eaves edgings, skirting boards (where applicable), felt and where applicable the verandah posts.

Does the Log Cabin need to be treated?
Log Cabins are supplied untreated. We explain in the section below the reasons for this. However as it is untreated it will enable you to decorate and finish your log cabin to your own individual style and taste. Please Note: the bearers are pre-treated with pressure treatment therefore any wood that comes into contact with the ground is powerfully treated to prevent against decay and insect infestation. It is advised that you treat your log cabin when it has been constructed with a suitable external wood treatment (there are some parts which will need treating prior to assembly which are detailed in the instructions) and treat the external walls periodically after that in order to maintain and prolong the life and beauty of your log cabin. We would also recommend the maintenance of doors and window hinges that you regularly oil these to ensure a continued smooth operation.

Why don't you pre-treat Log Cabins?
Log cabin timber is kiln dried, a process that reduces moisture content. This drying ensures that all wood is reasonably sized and capable of locking together tightly and securely. If timber was to be pre-treated for customers, the rigidly sized pieces of wood would have to be coated with preservative at this stage of production. Each piece would absorb varying amounts of treatment and drying times would be inconsistent. This process would expand to different sizes and this movement would prevent the interlocking log walls from fitting together tightly and securely, if at all.

Why don't all your log sizes come with double tongue and groove?
Using double tongue and groove on log sizes smaller than 44mm would cause the tongues to be very thin and liable to breaking off. This could jeopardise the bond making it very weak. We ensure that our 28mm and 34mm single tongue and groove logs and our 44 and 70mm double tongue and groove logs keep you nice and snug in your log cabin without jeopardising the sturdiness of the building.

Do you offer an Installation Service?
Yes. We offer an installation service throughout the majority of the UK mainland*. Installation by one of Shire's experienced assembly teams. If this is not displayed as an option on the product page, please call our Sales Team on 0115 965 9900 for a quote. Due to Seasonal fluctuation when choosing this option Installation may take up to 6 weeks.

How is the delivery of my log cabin arranged?
You will be contacted by Shire the manufacturer of your log cabin within 1-3 working days via a text message to the telephone number you have provided either a mobile or landline to inform you of how to book your delivery date. This will involve visiting their booking website. You will then either be able to book your delivery date online, or be advised that Shire will call you once a date is available. If having assembly of your log cabin you will still be sent a text message to go on to the booking website to accept the terms and conditions for assembly you will then be contacted at a later date by the delivery team with an assembly date for your log cabin.

How easy are Shire Log Cabins to assemble?
You will not need to be a DIY professional to put up a Shire log cabin. Comprehensive, accurate and extremely easy to follow assembly instructions are supplied. They show exactly where every component fits and the majority of individual components are coded to match the instructions.   YOu are also supplied with spares for some parts just in case. However, if you feel that you need a little advice or just have a couple of questions to ask, you can call Shire's Technical Team on: 01945 465 295 who will be happy to help.

Can I insulate my log cabin?
The floor and roof of our log cabins can be easily insulated (We do not recommend insulating the walls of the log cabin as they need to be able to move slightly with the changes in weather). There are many insulated sheets on the market suitable for insulating your cabin. We recommend using batons on the wall with a slot at one end to allow for expansion and contraction of the wood. We also offer optional 11mm thick double glazing. On many of our log cabins we have the option to increase the log thickness

Can I have electricity in my log cabin?
Although providing an electricity supply to a log cabin is normally a straightforward task, for safety reasons we recommend that you consult an approved electrician first.
