Looking for a spacious and contemporary log cabin to expand your available space at home? Look no further than the Melbury Log Cabin from Forest. With 34mm logs as standard, and various options for improving the insulation of this cabin including double glazing and upgraded roofing felt, the Melbury could be the perfect retreat for working from home or for using in your leisure time on any day of the year.

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 or work in comfort all year round.

Ways to Make the Most of Your Melbury Log Cabin

The Melbury is a fantastic purchase for anyone looking for a new space in which they can work from home or a place to escape to in their leisure time that is calm and tranquil. Particularly in the natural surroundings of your garden, it really can become a space away from it all that is ideal for quiet contemplation, getting work done, or providing somewhere for noisier house members to express themselves. If you have run out of room in your home and moving house or building a traditional extension are not practical options, then opting for a log cabin could solve your issues. Many choose to use the Melbury as a home office thanks to its spacious and bright interior and in particular find the atmosphere of a garden log cabin beneficial for their concentration. Alternatively, it could provide just the space you are after for pursuing your spare time activities in comfort and privacy. If you feel like saving money on memberships by setting up a home gym, or perhaps it’s a stylish music practice room you are after, the Melbury could be exactly what you need. The possibilities are almost endless!

Why the Melbury Might Be For You

The Melbury is exceptionally popular with those looking for a more contemporary look in their garden building. The pent roof gives a modern touch to the traditional log cabin, and the nearly fully-glazed front of the cabin further adds to the bright and contemporary feel. This, in combination with the opening side window, allows buckets of light to flood the interior which serves to make it feel extra spacious and airy. The roof overhang to the front provides welcome shelter when stepping inside your cabin while also rounding off the modern good looks of the Melbury. Why not customise your cabin to really give it the exact look and feel you are after? Many manufacturers recommend that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Melbury Log Cabin look exactly how you want it while adding important extra protection to the timber. Whether you favour a more traditional log cabin look, for which their range of ‘natural’ colours would be appropriate, or a more colourful, modern look, Protek have a colour to suit any taste.

Features and Upgrades

The Melbury includes 34mm machined, interlocking logs for the walls, which provide a nicely snug interior for year-round use. High-quality 19mm tongue and groove boards for the roof and floor are another sign of the Cabin’s quality. As standard, the Melbury has single glazed toughened glass in the windows and doors, but you can upgrade this to double glazing when choosing your product options. A rim lock and key is provided so you can secure the double doors. The opening side window can be built into either side of the cabin, whichever best suits your garden. Different felt roof options are also available. The standard option has a 24kg weight Polyester felted roof. The felt has a polyester fibre base layer that makes it much stronger and more tear resistant than non-polyester grades. With more than twice the tear resistance of conventional mineral felt it has a life expectancy of up to 15 years when fitted correctly. The roof can be upgraded to include an additional black sand felt underlay, which adds even better insulation and longevity. The highest specification model has upgraded 34kg roofing felt, a premium option. 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.
