            Ways to Make the Most of Your Barnsdale Log Cabin

            Particularly because of its summerhouse-like design, the Barnsdale provides you with the perfect spot in which to relax during your spare time. Within the attractive surroundings of your garden, you will have an elegant place to dine for two or a space for enjoying a few drinks with those closest to you. Once decorated to suite your personal tastes or adorned with your favourite furniture, you can create your very own garden haven in which to relax away from it all. Plus, you can open the double doors wide and the side window to create a wonderful, breezy space during warm weather or close yourself snugly inside during the cooler months. This provides you with the flexibility to enjoy your log cabin on any day of the year. Alternatively, people often purchase a log cabin as a place to pursue their favourite spare-time activities, and the 9 x 9 cabin gives you space in abundance. Whether you’ve been dreaming of a place to set up as a home gym, or perhaps you can see yourself letting your creative side run free in your very own garden art studio, a Barnsdale will provide the space you need to allow you to spend your leisure time exactly how you want. There are loads of ways to make the most of a log cabin, and we are certain it will become a much-loved addition to your home.

            Why Others Tell Us They Love the Barnsdale

            We hear from many of our customers that they love the design of several of the summerhouses we have for sale, but they need a building that can be used all year round. With all the beauty of a summerhouse but with the snug interior of a log cabin, the Barnsdale can be used all year round with no compromise on appearance. The stunning frontage features two ¾ length double doors with elegant Georgian-style glazing. The doors, combined with the large, Georgian-style side window, combine to allow buckets of natural light to flood into the cabin making the interior a bright, airy place in which spending your time is a real pleasure. The window and doors feature proper, handcrafted joinery, a quality feature that you will struggle to find on any log cabin that isn’t manufactured by Shire. Once inside, you will immediately notice the quality of the timber walls and the thick roof beams, which provide a fantastic feature within the log cabin. All in all, the Barnsdale is certain to become a real talking point of your garden with its striking good looks. To make it even more eye-catching, many of our customers like to personalise their log cabins by painting them. 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.


            Shire Log Cabins are built to last, and the Barnsdale is no exception to the rule. Overlapping corner logs and 4-way corner joints, which are used by Shire as standard, provide the building with impressive strength, stability and a sturdy feel. 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, tongue and groove roof and flooring add a further touch of quality and ensure that your roof will keep the inside protected from the worst of the British weather and that your floor can take heavy items of furniture without issue. The double doors can be locked with a mortise lock and key, giving peace of mind when storing items overnight. 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 Barnsdale 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.

            Picture shows the log cabin stained. 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 Barnsdale 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.

            You can also visit our Brookfields Garden Centre Showsite near Nottingham if you would like to sit down with one of our helpful members of staff, ask any questions about a log cabin, or get a real feel for our garden buidlings. We strive to keep a representative selection of our product range available for customers to look at on the showsite, but we do recommend you give us a call in advance if there is a specific garden product you would like to see.

            Upon Delivery
            Delivery is made by Shire the manufacturer. Delivery of this item is typically made by a 17 ton flat-bed (similar size to a council refuse lorry). Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.

            Installation option
            If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 5 working days by Shire the manufacturer either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-25 working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.

            Barnsdale 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?
            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 0115 965 9900 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.
