Leygrove Log Cabin 4.3 x 2.9 x 2.8m
Great value shed
I just finished building and painting this great summer house. It look the biz at the end of the garden overlooking a lake. It took 2 of us 2 days to put it up and the guy who worked with me is a professional installer for another up-market summer house manufacturer. He said when he first looked at it was going to be rubbish but in fact when he saw it yesterday, he said it looked nearly as good as theirs which go for Â£10,000. The main problem is the manual which is badly written and difficult to follow; most of it is in the wrong order. There were two missing items which meant I had to go to the factory in darkest Lincs/Cambs/Norfolk a place called Sutton Bridge. The people there were so helpful and it was only 12 miles away luckily. Missing was about 20 small wooden timbers, they had given me 20 too-many of an identical mirror image part. And one of the doors was missing too but they gave me a new set. So if anyone wants to start building their own you can have these as the factory did not want them back! The only thing wrong is the roof is not very strong and Dean who is the wrong side of 20 stone managed to knock one the roof spars out of its nailed connection to the roof panel. We ended up adding some 44x44mm bracing which significantly strengthened it. Oh and nothing is pre-assembled which is why it's cheap. The roof tiles work well and look great, that took over a day. And I finished it with 3 coats of Sikkens solvent based coloured wood stain.

Great log cabin
Quality product good value,but somewhat let down by very mediocre handles/locks,(one door handle broke off 2nd day and fixing screws for window stays sheared off when fitting)
Excellent customer service and communication,very friendly and helpful delivery man.Took about 4 days to complete assembly,very pleased with end result.

Best on the market
Having just finished construction I can commend the quality of materials and the accuracy of machining. The project proceeded without any problem whatsoever though the suggested two men over two days for completion was optimistic. Finally the professionalism and courtesy of the manufacturers in accommodating my difficult time scale for delivery was simply superb. I recommend this product whole heartedly. Perros
