- Timber Base Work — A 140mm x 95mm pressure treated base frame is supplied which is supported by 100mm x 100mm recycled plastic posts spaced approximately 1m apart. At each post location holes can be dug and posts are concreted into the ground. The height of the frame is determined by the highest point of the ground. This method allows airflow under the cabin and ensures a solid, level, and stable foundation.
This can be used as a permanent base, but it won't have a permanent impact on the surrounding environment that a concrete base will.

The Tay log Cabin is a smaller, practical cabin that would suit any garden. It comes in a two sizes 3.0m x 2.4m or 3.0m x 3.0m, both as standard with a single door, single window and 28mm walls. Also included is 20mm heavy duty floor and on top of all that the roof has a 0.70m overhang. This is the perfect solution to an inexpensive summer house in a quiet corner at the bottom of the garden.
Whatever you choose to use it for, you’re getting a really solid little timber building. A single door and a single window protected by a 0.70m overhang makes the Tay log cabin a really practical solution for lots of purposes in the garden.
At Logspan we really do try our best to provide fair pricing but with these smaller cabins it is much easier to offer them at a cost band that won’t mean you need another mortgage!
Like all Logspan log cabins, the wood used in manufacture is sustainably grown Northern spruce. It is important to note, all cabins come with a wooden treated base frame so this protects the bottom of the cabin but the rest of the timber MUST be treated as soon as possible. As wood is a natural material; it expands, moves and contracts all the time so it is important that the timber is treated properly and as soon as possible. It is worth treating inside the log cabins as well before you fit it out.
What's included in the package is everything you need to get going:
- A treated base frame on which the whole cabin is built
- All wall logs, each cut to size, length and with the interlocking notches already cut out
- Floor & roof boards cut to length
- Skirting board
- Internal and External Trim
- Wind Boards for the gable ends
- Detailed instructions
- Screws of all lengths and sizes for each section of the job (this is a generic screw pack/you are likely to have some left over)
- Nails for putting down floor - (some like to use a brad gun instead of our nails to make 'secret nailing' in the tongue & groove boards easier)
- Roof covering - you can opt to order with or without the roof covering - This is selected at time of order
- If you have any trouble, we are available on the end of the phone to help out with build or with any queries.
- There is also most likely to be an extra wall board with notches cut out. This is there if there are any damages or missing parts. This extra log can be used to replace the broke or missing part in the unlikely circumstance. If you don't use it, it's a free piece of wood which could be used to make a shelf or a little step for the cabin.
The only thing you will need is your own tools and a flat, stable, level base. Information and advice on base work can be found here. It is also advisable to have at least 2 able bodies to build the cabin.
