We are back on the blog today with our new feature, fabulous Friday feedback. This week it’s the turn of the Lisa 3 log cabin a 5.3 x 3.8m 44mm log cabin from Palmako purchased for extra storage and a fantastic she shed for mum.
I finally decided on the Lisa 3 cabin after many visits, and as they have a display one on site and I could see how big it was inside this helped with my decision. Delivery wasn’t too long and it was delivered onto my driveway. I decided to build it myself with the help of my 2 teenage sons when I could get them out of their bedrooms! It took me ( a woman in my 30s plus my sons ) to get it built in 2 days, then over the next couple of days spending only a couple of hours at a time, I installed the floor and roof insulation and felt covering. Instructions were relatively easy to follow and when I did get stuck, I soon asked Rob for advice and he was always willing to go through it with me. Overall I am pleased that I gave it a try and managed to get it built! The hardest part of the whole installation was getting the ground level for the ProBase.
I have decided to use it as well as for extra storage as a ” Mum’s Retreat away from a house of boys”!
After spotting us on social media this local customer came to our Norfolk log cabin and shed display site to look at the cabins we have on show and discuss all the various options with the team. At our show site we have a number of timber buildings in all different sizes on display from all our manufacturers that demonstrate various roof options including apex,hipped and pent and cabin features. Whether you are looking for a hot tub cabin with bi-fold doors, glamping pod, corner summerhouse, shed for storage, even a summerhouse shed combo; or simply want some inspiration from our very own man cave bar and she shed you can find it all at our show site. As well as the timber buildings themselves, we also have examples of our optional extras, so you can actually see and feel exactly what you are buying before it arrives. You can see our ProBase plastic base system in action as well as the different roof coverings from simple shed felt to shingle tiles in a variety of colours and long-lasting EPDM rubber roofing for flat or pent roofs. All of our cabins are treated in Rystix timber care treatment, in both standard colours as well as the rainbow of options available from our premium colour mix range. Rystix is our go to, timber treatment and we recommend it because we know it works, once applied in 3 coats this treatment will protect your timber building and outdoor garden furniture from insect and fungal attack and the good old British weather for around 7 years before you need to add a top up coat.
Our customer chose the Lisa 3 to be her new back garden log cabin, having seen it on display at our show site, opting for insulation and a felt roof covering as well. Part of the
Lisa family, the Lisa 3 log cabin is our most popular pent roof, 44mm log cabin in the 5 x 4m size category. Delivery is usually a speedy 4 weeks, and at under 2.5m to the ridge planning permission is normally not required either. This log cabin features two large double windows with central, double doors all on the front side of the building. There are a range of optional extras available alongside the Lisa 3 log cabin as well including additional windows, guttering, side extension and side canopy. We also offer an option for a pre-treatment bath across the majority of our Palmako range of log cabins and summer houses. Available in a clear white, brown and grey this pre-treatment offers an initial protection against insect and fungus attack and the weather. The pre-treatment option is especially popular at this time of the year as the weather turns and means that you can install your building with the assurance that the timber will be protected until the dryer summer months.
We have a dedicated team of experienced cabin fitters working across the country who can install your base and timber building for you. However, there is always the option of a supply only service which means that you get to take on the building challenge yourself. Our customer chose to do just that, with the help of her sons and our installers and fitters on hand to offer advice. I’m sure you’ll agree this customer did a fantastic job on her cabin creating a mums masterpiece for her back garden retreat, and if like me after a long half term, you’re in need of your very own ‘mums retreat’ then grab a cuppa and give our sales team a call on 01362 470075. Our log cabin display site, situated just off the A47 in Dereham, Norfolk is also open week days 8.30-5pm and weekends 10-4pm.
