            Ways to Make the Most of your Kingswood Log Cabin

            There are so many ways to make the most of a log cabin, and with a garden building as stunning as the Kingswood, you’ll be able to make the most of your fantastic new space in serious style. With a cabin the size of the Kingswood, especially given its large veranda which spans the entire frontage, you will be spoilt for choice with how you can get the best out of your log cabin. Many customers choose to use a cabin of this size as a guest room, particularly if they regularly have visitors to stay the night; giving yourself and your guests their own space is always a popular use for our cabins. The Kingswood also provides an excellent spot for entertaining and relaxing. As a backdrop to a garden party, a summer BBQ or even as a spacious living/dining room for dinner parties or games nights, this cabin is ideal. Plus, with the option to spill out onto the decked veranda area on a beautiful day, the Kingswood really does provide you with the perfect spot for relaxing with family and friends.

            Another popular option for customers is to set up their log cabins as a place for working or from which to run a business. There is so much room that whether it’s a home office you need, or perhaps it’s somewhere you can host clients that you require - whatever your line of business is, the Kingswood will provide you with a superb, professional space. Alternatively, you may consider using the Kingswood as a room for all your favourite spare-time activities. If you have always wanted a home gym spacious enough for larger equipment, a stylish music practice room, a bright and inspiring art studio or even just a fully equipped, family entertainment centre and gaming room, the Kingswood gives you a space you can use however you see fit. With so many possibilities, and larger or custom sized cabins available through our made to measure service, you’ll love spending time in a Kingswood Log Cabin however you decide to use it.

            Why Others Tell Us They Love the Kingswood

            The Kingswood is a truly enchanting, traditional log cabin and customers always have their eyes immediately drawn to the stunning veranda spanning the front of the cabin. We often hear how the picture customers have in their minds when they imagine a log cabin includes a porch or veranda, and the Kingswood certainly delivers a beautiful example of how wonderful a garden building with this feature can look. The Kingswood also boasts wide-opening double doors with double windows to either side of them, as well as a double opening window on each of the cabin’s side elevations. This ensures that the interior will be flooded with natural light during the day, plus it allows you to regulate the temperature all year round. Whether you want to shut yourself cosily inside when the weather is cold, or whether you want to throw open all the windows and doors to create a breezy, cool space on a hot day, you will have the flexibility to adapt, whatever the outside conditions are. All the windows and doors also feature elegant, Georgian-style glazing and handcrafted joinery, a real sign of quality that also gives the Kingswood its traditional appeal. The cabin’s reverse apex roof adds something a little different, and is a very popular design feature on our log cabins. 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 an impressive variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Kingswood look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. With the more traditional looking log cabins, customers often prefer the ‘natural’ colour range, which includes a variety of wood stains. But Protek really does have a colour to suit any taste, from colourful and bright to more subtle tones.


            A Shire Log Cabin is built to last, and the Kingswood 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 Kingswood 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 Kingswood 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. The decking of the veranda is also pressure treated to guarantee a longer life and less maintenance over your cabin’s lifetime. 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.

            At elbec, we offer a range of customisation options on all our Shire log cabins to help give you your perfect cabin.

            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.
