Aberfeldy log cabin installation

A trip through the beautiful countryside of Perthshire through Crieff to Aberfeldy for our latest installation. The log cabin in this case is a bespoke budget log cabin with 28mm walls to be used as a tack room, storing saddles and riding gear for the horses and ponies in the adjoining stables.

Insulated to include 50mm Kingspan in the floor and ceiling and double glazing this specification of cabin should reduce condensation and keep all the kit in good condition.

Due to access delivery was taken at a local builders yard off site and transported via the Cabin Living van to the site.

The double doors of the stables allowed good access for unloading.

Up to roof height in a fairly short time and ready to fit the bitumen roof shingles.

Water supply in position for a Belfast sink to be fitted in one corner. Floor consists of 19mm tongue and groove, 50mm thick Kingspan insulation followed by 8mm thick laminate.

The cabin complete in three days with roof and floor insulation, plasterboarded ceiling, guttering, laminate flooring and a hydraulic door closer so the door will not blow open in the high winds of the highlands!
