Twin Skin Insulated Log Cabins

Insulated log cabins

Log cabins are relatively warm compared with other gardens buildings - our twinskins have cavities in the roof, walls and floor where various insulation materials can be inserted (we can offer 3 standard insulation specifications - anything from a hobby room right up to comply with habitational UK building regs), if you want a truly all year round garden room, office or even a house then our twin skin log cabins are the best choice by far (they are also known as dual walled cabins).

  • This is a video of our twinskin Maidstone 4x4m log cabin being installed onto a concrete base previously laid by our customer. Fibreglass insulation kit is fitted to the roof, walls and floor for all round insulation making it usable throughout the year.

What insulation do you need in your log cabin?

We offer various options with all of our cabins - suitable for everything from a garden games room (low level of insulation required) to garden offices (medium insulation values required). We use this for our own office in our showsite, with only a small amount of energy required to maintain a warm and comfortable working environment, even when sitting still for long periods of time.

We can custom build our cabins to any size, shape or design - our 50mm cavity walled twinskin is warmer than a house built in the '90s and can be upgraded to a 90mm insulated cavity to be as warm as the new houses being built today (this is equivalent to a solid single skin log wall of over 600mm! (Yes, this is not a typo - that is about 2ft thick)....So don't let other so called "log cabin experts" tell you that a 45mm single skin log cabin is so very warm - because it isn't!...They probably just say that because they don't offer anything else for sale that is warmer).
