            The 12 x 10 Argyll Log Cabin from Shire combines the beautiful appearance of a traditional summerhouse with all the quality features of a log cabin. With the fully glazed frontage providing wide open views of your garden that is characteristic of a summerhouse, but with the year round usability, sturdiness and snug interior you expect from a log cabin, the Argyll gives you the best of both worlds.

            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 Argyll Log Cabin

            Looking for a wonderful new space for your home in which you can work, relax or pursue your favourite hobbies in style? Then look no further than the Argyll Log Cabin. As a tranquil spot in which to enjoy the beauty of your garden away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a log cabin is an ideal purchase. Enjoying a drink or two with loved ones, reading a good book or even just listening to your favourite music and watching the world go by are all perfect ways to while away the hours in a log cabin. If you love to host guests, then the Argyll could also be an excellent purchase. As the backdrop to a summer BBQ, a dinner party or even as a space to set up as a guest room if you regularly have visitors to stay overnight, the Argyll is a dream for anyone who likes to entertain. If it’s a more practical use you have in mind, then a log cabin would also be ideal as a home office or a room for your spare time activities. Away from any possible distractions in your home and in a calming garden setting, many find that a log cabin provides the perfect environment for concentrating on work or other activities. But really, there’s more than enough room for whatever you want to use the space for. Whether you’re a keen painter who would love somewhere bright and inspiring to use as an art studio, or perhaps it’s the games room of your dreams that you’re after, the Argyll could provide the flexibility and room that you need. With a range of alternative sizes, as well as made to measure options, available, you are certain to find the perfect log cabin for your needs.

            Why Others Tell Us They Love the Argyll

            Customers who fell in love with and purchased the Argyll are those who were won over by its stunning, fully glazed frontage. In fact, we often hear how the Argyll looks more like a beautiful summerhouse, with the wide open views of your garden provided by all the glazing, than what they might usually expect from a log cabin. But that does not take away from the classic cabin look and feel you get from the Argyll. With those Georgian-style double doors and windows framed by a traditional apex roof, you really are getting the best of both a log cabin and a summerhouse in a package that you can take advantage of all year round, thanks to the well-insulated interior. The double doors and windows also combine to allow buckets of natural light to flood inside, ensuring the interior is a bright and pleasant place to spend your time. Both windows are opening, meaning that you can turn the interior into a breezy, cool place during the summer with the windows and doors thrown open, or shut yourself cosily inside when the weather is cooler. The interior is also spacious and airy thanks to generous headroom, and the thick roof beams inside provide an additional attractive feature. 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 Argyll 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.


            Like all Shire Log Cabins, the Argyll is built to high specifications that ensure it will stand up to the test of time.  With 4-way corner joints and interlocking logs of the highest quality used as standard, we are certain you will be impressed by the strength, stability and sturdy feel of the Argyll Log Cabin. The Shire draught seal system on all external windows and doors also ensures that you will be snug inside your cabin all year round. Made from 28mm thick wall logs as standard, you will find this gives the interior plenty of insulation for year-round use. However, many customers opt to upgrade the thickness of their walls for an even cosier interior and you can choose from 34mm, 44mm and 70mm thick wall logs for your cabin. On top of this, the window glazing can be easily upgraded to improve insulation, to either toughened glass or double glazing. Quality Celotex roof and floor insulation can also be included as part of our bespoke service to help ensure a snug interior whatever the weather. The door can be locked securely using the mortise lock and key provided, giving you peace of mind when leaving items inside. The Argyll, like all Shire Log Cabins, can be dismantled and rebuilt should you ever decide to move, a useful feature when investing in a log cabin. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your log cabin quickly and correctly. Alternatively, you are free to make use of the detailed instructions included and construct it yourself.

            Customisation Options

            You can make a selection of customisations to the Argyll Log Cabin without needing our bespoke service. Why not upgrade the window glazing for an extra-snug interior that can be used all-year-round, whatever the weather? If there are other changes you have in mind, please read on for more information about our bespoke and made to measure service.

            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.


            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.

            To illustrate the dimensions for this log cabin, the footprint shown below relates to the 3590mmG x 3590mm (12'G (Door Side) x 12') Log Cabin and does not include the roof overhang. The symbol (G) relates to the Gable End which for this log cabin is the front width (door side) and is the first measurement. The second measurement relates to the depth therefore for a 3590G x 3590mm (12G x 12') model the door/front width is the 12ft measurement.
