The Table below shows the specification for the Bradley Log Cabin.  Please Note the table shows the minimum Ridge Height for the Bradley Log Cabin, this may vary for some larger footprints.  For Ridge Height specifications for the other sizes in the "Bradley range" please contact our Sales Team. All imperial measurements are approximate and the log cabins are built to metric measurements. The base sizes are taken to the extreme external length of the log including the corner joints that protrude. The base measurements do not include any roof overhangs.

To convert external dimensions to internal dimensions please minus 238mm off the external measurements. So for a cabin that was 1000mm x 1000mm, the internal measurements would be 762mm x 762mm

The Gable End (G) is the width or Front and is the first measurement and is where the door is located. The second measurement relates to the depth therefore for a 3590G x 2990mm (12G x 10ft) model the door/front is the 12ft measurement ie the first measurement.

Description

Have you outgrown your available storage or working space in your home? Looking to set up a home workshop or craft room but simply don’t have a suitable place in your house? The Bradley workshop Log Cabin could be the solution. An attractive timber log cabin that provides a secure and pleasant working or storage environment, purchasing the Bradley will give you an excellent, versatile new space for you to take advantage of.

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

Ways to Make the Most of Your Bradley Log Cabin

The Bradley Log Cabin is ideal when you are running out of space at home or are looking for a room to set up a home workshop or hobby room. It isn’t always practical, viable or affordable for many people to simply move home for extra space or to build an extension on their homes, so a log cabin often fulfils customers’ need for space. As a home workshop, the Bradley is absolutely ideal. The sturdy timber construction will ensure the inside is a pleasant place to work all year round and that the cabin’s contents are kept safe. Plus, many report that the garden setting of a log cabin is ideal for concentrating on work, whether you are using it as a workshop, a painting studio or even a home office. Alternatively, you might consider setting it up as a home library or art studio, especially if you have large items of equipment or bookshelves you can’t find space for in your home. The Bradley’s double doors also make it an excellent, general storage space as you should have no problem getting large items inside. And of course, many simply opt to turn their log cabins into a cosy, garden haven where they can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax in the beautiful surroundings of their garden. However you decide to take advantage of this superb new space, we are certain you will love making the most of your new log cabin.

Why Others Tell Us They Love the Bradley

The Bradley always impresses customers because it provides a versatile and spacious interior despite having a relatively compact footprint. This makes it ideal for customers with limited space in their gardens but who still require a generous amount of new space for their home. This is achieved thanks to the ample headroom and spacious floor area inside. Proper, handcrafted joinery is used on the elegant, Georgian style window on the Bradley. This adds a touch of quality that you will only find on Shire Log Cabins in this price range. The window also opens to facilitate airflow around your log cabin, as well as allowing in plenty of natural light, to create the ideal conditions for working or relaxing. At the time of assembly, you can choose to locate the window on whichever side of the cabin best suits your garden. This all comes in a package that showcases the best of a traditional log cabin design, with its thick logs, sturdy roof beams inside and attractive apex roof. Many customers like to add a personal touch to their log cabins by painting them and they look great in any colour. Shire recommends you use Protek Paint, a high quality exterior wood treatment available to purchase from elbec in over 50 colours. You are certain to find a colour or combination of colours you love, while also adding valuable extra protection to the timber, in the Protek Royal Exterior range.

Features

A Shire Log Cabin is built to last, and the Bradley 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 the Bradley Log Cabin. It is delivered with thick interlocking logs of the highest quality and robust, heavy duty roofing felt, so you can rest assured that you will be nicely sealed away from the elements and snug when inside. Robust, 12mm thick, tongue and groove roof and flooring adds a further touch of quality and ensures you have a roof that provides fantastic protection from the British weather and a floor that can withstand heavy loads. The solid, secure double doors open wide for easy access and can be locked for extra security. The doors also feature full-length, quality piano hinges as standard to further add to the cabin’s quality and security. Finally, the apex roof is a generous height, leaving plenty of headroom inside. You can also 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 having our dedicated professionals assemble your log cabin quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included and construct it yourself

About your Log Cabin Order

The Bradley Log Cabin is supplied with heavy duty roofing felt, and all fixtures necessary to complete assembly. Floor joists are supplied properly pressure treated through the Shire in house facilities. Timber sizes stated are the actual size of the timber after planing and machining.

All Shire Log Cabins are supplied untreated. You must apply a wood treatment to the exterior. Shire recommends Protek wood treatment, available from elbec in many different colours. This will protect the timber from weathering, making it last longer. The timber treatment will need to be repeated periodically in line with the manufacturer's instructions.

We also recommend that you take a look at our Delivery information if you think that the Bradley could be the perfect log cabin for you. Hopefully, any queries you may have will be answered in our delivery information and by our FAQs, but please do get in contact with us if you have any questions and we would be happy to provide advice or assist you in any way we can.

If you cancel an order after it has been despatched you will be liable for the cost of the building and the cost of return unless in the unlikely event the building is faulty.

Please Note - Your log cabin will be supplied flat packed for self assembly. Shire Log Cabins are delivered on a flat bed lorry.  Shire Log Cabins are made from kiln dried timber that must be laid flat and covered by tarpaulins or similar if stored outside prior to construction. This is to prevent moisture/rain/sun from distorting the timber.

If this is the case we will of course notify you, prior to the re-delivery, of any charges that apply.

Bradley 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 Office, Games Room, Hobby Room, Spill-Over Guest Room or for Dining.  We also have Log Cabins with multi rooms.  We offer a service where you can dictate your own size, location of doors/windows and the optional features you want.

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 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.

Do I need Planning Permission for a Log Cabin?
Buildings 2.5m and below generally do not require planning permission as a Log Cabin is classed as a temporary building but we would recommend that you check with your local authority as to the regulations for your area.  Log Cabins over 2.5m and within 2 metres of a bourdary will require planning permission.

What is the best way to prepare a base for my Log Cabin?
All log cabins require a well prepared, solid, flat, level base to ensure a long lasting and stable installation.  Paving slabs (built on hardcore) or concrete make ideal bases for Log Cabins. A solid concrete base is more permanent but is more expensive but it does provide an excellent base for a larger log cabin. Paving slabs are more practical and cost effective and we would recommend this type of base for a smaller log cabin. The base can be level with the ground but should have a fall of 1 in 50 to ensure water run-off.

What tools do I need to build my Log Cabin?
Good quality DIY hand tools, such as:
- Drills 
- Hammer
- Screwdrivers
- Level
- Stepladder
- Tape measure
- Saw
- 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, 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 it 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 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.

Do you offer an Installation Service?
Yes. We offer an installation service throughout the majority of the UK mainland.  Please call our Sales Team on our Freephone Number 0800 019 3865 for a quote.

How is the delivery of my log cabin arranged?
The delivery company will contact you a few days prior to delivery to arrange a convenient delivery date with you. Access is required for a large lorry.  This is a kerbside delivery.

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. However, if you feel that you need a little advice or just have a couple of questions to ask, you can call  us on: 0870 950 9940 or via e-mail at customercare@elbec.co.uk and our experienced team will be happy to help.

Can I insulate my log cabin?
The floor and roof of our log cabins can be easily insulated. 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 11mm thick double glazing. 

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. Since January 1st 2005 all electrical work must be completed in accordance with IEE wiring regulations and BS 7671. Notifiable work must be either notified directly to the local building control department or completed by an operator who is approved under the Part P Electrical Competent Person Scheme.
