About Your Base Preperations

What’s Expected

HOW & WHAT SHOULD BE DONE

Why should you build a firm base first?

We recommend all of our log cabins are installed on to a solid and perfectly leveled base constructed to a very good standard. Like all projects its always best to start as you mean to go on by preparing a concrete or paving stoned base is the keystone to achieve that perfect installation.

Before you start any project always take your time to plan, remember not to build the base too close to any walls, fences or boundaries as there will be a slight overhang on the corners and on the roofs sections. Think! if you place your new base close to trees or large shrubs this could cause you major problems from overhanging tree branches and roots. Once your new garden log cabin has been assembled its best to check overhanging foliage regularly as any rubbing on the roofing material may lead wear or cutting.
