            The Elveden Log Cabin from Shire is the complete package. Not only will it look absolutely fantastic in your garden, it is spacious enough to be partitioned into two separate rooms without feeling cramped in the slightest. If the only dilemma you want to be faced with is deciding what to do with all that extra space, then the Elveden could be the perfect log cabin for you.

            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 Elveden Log Cabin

            There are loads of ways to make the most of a Shire Elveden Log Cabin. With its generous size and two internal rooms, the Elveden can become the perfect home away from home. Having two rooms will mean you are really spoilt for choice with how to use your space. You could separate work and leisure by turning one room into a calm, quiet area ideal for concentrating on your work, while keeping the other free for entertaining guests or relaxing with family and friends. By throwing open the double doors and the opening windows, you will have a breezy, cool place to spend your time. Alternatively, keep them closed to give you a nice, snug indoor space. This means you can really make the most of your log cabin whatever the outside conditions are. If work space isn’t what you need, the Elveden is great for pursuing all those hobbies you’ve simply never had space for in your home. From an exercise room to a music studio, a log cabin could provide just the space you need. Setting up your log cabin as a guest room for visitors is also a great idea, especially if you have friends or family who often stay the night or have long distances to travel. And of course, a popular choice is to give one or both rooms to young children or teenagers. They’re sure to appreciate having their own space to spend their leisure time and the extra freedom to pursue more noisy pastimes without disturbing parents. With so many possibilities, and larger or custom sized cabins available through our made to measure service, you’ll love spending time in an Elveden Log Cabin however you decide to use it.

            Why Others Tell Us They Love the Elveden

            As with all Shire Log Cabins, the quality is apparent straight away. We think you’ll find the elegant appearance of the Elveden especially attractive. Its eye-catching Georgian style double doors with windows to either side make it look and feel at first like a small house rather than a log cabin! The handcrafted joinery on all windows and doors is another feature that adds to its quality and appeal. Generous headroom and plenty of natural light make the already spacious interior feel even more open. The porch gives a practical touch, providing the perfect area to remove muddy shoes, as well as adding to the cabin’s overall charm. As part of our bespoke service, you can also choose to remove the porch to make the front level if you’d prefer that little extra space on the inside. We are confident you’ll think the Elveden looks great with or without the porch. It is the space inside that is the real draw of this log cabin. We are certain you’ll be impressed with how spacious the interior feels even when separated into two rooms. However, if you’d prefer, our bespoke service allows you to remove the room partition to create one large space. The Elveden provides an impressive, versatile space that is difficult to match, which is why it has proved so popular with customers. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their log cabins which look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Elveden 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 has a colour to suit any taste.


            A Shire Log Cabin is built to last, and the Elveden is no exception. With overlapping corner logs and 4-way corner joints used by Shire as standard, you’ll be impressed by the strength, stability and sturdy feel of your cabin. The Shire draught seal system fitted on all external windows and doors ensure that you will be snug when inside. The Elveden Log Cabin has a choice of log wall thickness of either 44mm or 70mm. A popular choice among our customers is to opt for the thicker wall log, which already comes with upgraded roof, floor and joists as part of the standard Elveden package. This gives you an even sturdier construction and further usability throughout the year. You also have the option to upgrade to double glazed windows for an all year round cosier feel, a popular decision especially when there is a possibility that guests will stay overnight in the cabin. Optional Celotex floor and roof insulation is available so you can make full use of your log cabin whatever the weather. 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.

            Range of Customisations Options

            At elbec, we offer a range of customisation options on all our Shire log cabins to help give you your perfect cabin. Why not add an additional side window to your log cabin to let in some extra natural light and maximise the open feel of your space? Take a look at our range of customisations above to make the changes you want.

            Feel free to email us to discuss our full range of customisation and product options, or better still, give us a call so we can find the perfect log cabin to suit your needs.  Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite near Nottingham? One of our helpful advisors will be on hand to show you around so you can really appreciate the look, feel and quality of our log cabins.

            Bespoke and Made to Measure Cabins

            All our Shire Log Cabins are made to order. As well as our various customisation options, you can choose to have the Elveden designed by you from scratch.

            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.
