Simple log cabin

This was a lovely little handcrafted log cabin project. The cabin was built for a school in Worcestershire for use in their Forest Schools program.

The school cabin has a footprint of 3m x 4m built in Western Red Cedar handcrafted log work, and what a wonderful setting, we supplied the log work only on this project and a local tradesman finished it off, and what a fine job he did.

The perfect garden office, summerhouse or woodland shelter. We call this a simple cabin because it only has 4 logs in its design, simple. Simple cabins are available at up to 7m x 7m.

The uses of this size of cabin are limitless, we have built them as summerhouses, extra bedrooms in the garden, home offices and even saunas. We can design a cabin specifically to fit the space and use that you have in mind. Just Contact Us with your ideas.
