A very common question from customers is “How flexible or fixed are our log cabin designs”? The simple answer is that they aren’t fixed at all.
So the next question (quickly following that answer) is “Does that cost a lot extra?”. Another very simple answer from us is “Very little, possibly nothing at all or even that it could cost less depending on what needs changing”. All of the styles and designs on our website are purely there as a starting point to give ideas to customers. If the customer needs fewer windows or doors, then it’s highly likely that it would cost less. If doors or windows need moving to a certain position (but the total number remains the same) then there may be a very small charge for this. Or there may not depending on what else is going on with the cabin (adding partitions to make into a multi room log cabin will obviously cost more).
The upshot is simple – we have our own dedicated factory. Therefore we can be as flexible as required and for very little (or no) extra cost. The way to think about it is that cabins (and all garden buildings) are timber boxes with windows, doors and canopies – you choose where you want them and how many, and leave the rest to us. This even applies to our residential log cabin houses – you tell us what you need.
In summary, if it is possible to draw a design, then we are able to make and install it.
NB – it is always worth pointing out that there my be certain restrictions that apply. Planning permission, building regulations, etc may be required. Follow these links to the relevant government website for more info –

Building Regulations for garden buildings – https://www.planningportal.co.uk/info/200130/common_projects/43/outbuildings/2
We offer many different cabins that have no restrictions, so there is no need to get involved in any planning applications. Some of them can be seen here – https://www.uklogcabins.co.uk/log-cabins/
