Description

Do you love a classic log cabin look but are searching for something just a little bit different? The 9 x 9 Crinan Log Cabin from Shire fits the bill. Its traditional design is really brought to life by its overhanging roof, which adds an extra touch of charm and character. This is all in a package that is surprisingly affordable for the quality you will receive. 

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 Crinan Log Cabin

The Crinan provides you with a fantastic, versatile new place for relaxing or working when space in your home is at a premium. As a cosy home from home in your garden away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a log cabin is perfect. Decorated in your preferred style and adorned with your favourite (or your most comfortable) furniture, you can create a haven for relaxing with a good book, listening to some music or enjoying a drink with loved ones. Away from distractions at home, many also find that setting up a log cabin office is a fantastic way to make use of their new space, finding that concentrating on work is far easier in a calming garden setting. Alternatively, why not set it up as a space for all the hobbies or activities you wish you could do but can’t find the room for in your home? The extra space in the 9 x 9 provides you with plenty of flexibility for how to use the additional space. Whether you’d love your very own art studio at home or dream of having a place for some gym equipment, the Crinan can provide you with exactly the space you are after so you can spend your leisure time how you want to. Whatever use you have in mind, and with a larger size available, you’re sure to love making the most of your new log cabin.

Why Others Tell Us They Love the Crinan

The Crinan’s attractive, overhanging roof is what immediately draws the eye and it remains a popular log cabin thanks to this charming feature. It also provides a handy sheltered area for removing muddy shoes or for relaxing in your garden in a bit of shade on a sunny day. The large, almost full length window and ¾ glazed door on the front combine to allow in buckets of natural light. This, plus the generous amount of headroom inside, gives you a delightfully spacious and airy space that is a pleasure to spend time in. The window and door feature proper, handcrafted joinery, a touch of quality seldom found on log cabins that aren’t produced by shire. Glazed in the elegant, Georgian style, this adds the final touch of class to this classic log cabin look. The window is also fully-opening, meaning you can let in a cool breeze on a warm day or shut yourself snugly inside when the weather is cooler. 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

Shire Log Cabins are built to last, and the Crinan 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 door 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 Crinan 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 Crinan 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.

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.

Crinan 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.
