Here at Logspan, we have array of unique garden buildings that can be used as studios / crafting rooms / home offices / workshops as well as garden bars and sitting rooms. We have been in business for over 20 years and host a spanning show site with over 30 + unique garden buildings.
We do it all, from 28mm, single skinned, single glazed summer rooms /summerhouses to the top of the range, 115mm double skinned, fully insulated home offices / full time residential standard buildings. It’s this variety that is the key to our customer service. It gives the customer choice, and that’s the freedom all creatives deserve when making improvements their home and garden.
When embarking on projects like this, it’s important that you get it right first time, so we set out to make sure that all of our units can be altered on almost every level to fit in with your required specifications. We provide a bespoke log cabin design service that puts you in the drivers seat and gives you the freedom to design the cabin from the ground up.
You can adjust everything from overall size, height, roof style, door and window size and placement, wall thickness, levels of insulation –. Find more detailed information on anything mentioned here using the custom cabin section of the website.
The first thing you would need to consider is size. How much space do you have a available vs how much are you willing to use. In these initial stages its hard envisage how the cabin is going to look like in the garden. Many people find them selves intimidated when measuring up, as they are concerned by how much space is going to be lost after building, but the advantages of size and space will often outweigh trepidation. We have never heard a customer say , “I wish I’d bought a smaller log cabin”!
Most of our customers then tend to focus on the thickness of the timber. Its probably the second biggest factor when shopping for log cabin because it has so much to do with the reason for getting one. You need to consider how much time you plan to spend in it, what are you going to use it for, what time of year are you going to use it most, is anyone going to be sleeping there? These are some of the first questions we would ask when speaking to an inquirer because, 28mm thick, single skinned walls just aren’t going to cut the mustard if you are planning on using it for over night rentals on sites like AirBnB or Booking.com.
Increasing the volume of timber is a great benefit as you are creating a structurally stronger product. The interlocking fitting of the wall corners is exceptionally tight and by increasing the overall thickness of each length, you are naturally insulating the cabin, which will keep in the heat and protect you from the elements.
For those that are building full time residential wooden structures, glamping cabins, home offices, outdoor classrooms, we recommend adding additional insulation, – first in the floor and roof, to regulate the temperature then looking at the walls.
Another reason people opt for a bespoke cabin is to have the freedom to choose where to feature their windows and doors.
“Double Glazed – with insulated glass units. Made from triple-layered glued-laminated timber. Windows come with an aluminium sill, to protect the frame from moisture. Equipped with high-quality “Roto” hinges. Silicon-rubber insulation is applied to protect against water leakage. The window trims can be either modern or feature decorative millwork (at the customer’s request).

“Single Glazed” – with regular 4mm thick glass (without insulated glass units). Produced with double-layered laminated wood. Window trims are modern. Equipped with high-quality “Roto” hinges. ” – https://www.logspan.com/windows

Maybe you have a south facing garden and at a certain point of the day the sun shines perfectly in a particular spot, you’d want to have a full length windows waiting there to take full advantage of the weather when we get it.
Choose the windows that speak to you and place them wherever you need them most.
