Garden building in Heacham, Norfolk

A Plymouth 4m x 4m log cabin recently installed near King's Lynn, Norfolk.

After taking delivery of the cabin we made a start on the concrete base.

Base complete and left to set overnight before starting the assembly of the garden room.

Sorting timber as we carried the cabin around to the site helps to speed up the assembly process.

Time to make a start on building the cabin.

Drilling and fixing timbers as described in the instructions we are soon up to window height even though we are dealing with, sometimes awkward, 68mm thick timbers.

In this case the canopy was modified on site to reduce the hangover of the canopy. The normal canopy is in excess of 1 metre whereas with this example it was trimmed down to 0.6 metres.

19mm tongue and groove roof boards are fitted next with a few spares following the modifications to the canopy.

Roof shingles fitted before the roof gets too hot to work on!

Exteriior trim added and the cabin is ready for handover.

Installed with 50mm Celtoex insulation to the floor and ceiling, this cabin is notably cooler on the inside during the hot summer months and obviously significantly warmer during the winter months.

Fitted with extra thick 12mm laminate in this case as it is planned to be used as a gym though having seen the end results a change of plan may mean this becomes Tony's new garden office!

We should have got this done sooner!
Thanks again for such a painless professional all round service.
Btw, we reached a compromise on the usage! (have sent you updated images of the interior)
