22.  Installation 


 Please Note if Installation is included in our estimate then the installation it will be carry by our preferred contractors that are fully licensed to carry carpentry work for this type of work. Our office will organize the team and will advise the time that are available and confirm the time and introduce you (the customer) to our preferred installer. Deposit payment for 10% must be paid for installation to our office before installation starts and final payment must be paid on completion to Installer on completion.


Our preferred team of installers have much experience in construction of timber buildings and will erect the build in your place of choice. If you have placed an order including roof coverings, insulation, guttering or the addition of a veranda, these will all be fitted within the cabin construction price.


You will need to provide some of the basics, such as a suitable base, safe access to site and somewhere that the materials can be stored whilst assembly is taking place. The installers will require somewhere to park their vehicle whilst working at your premises, please advise us at the time of booking if parking is likely to be a problem. The base for your cabin should be at least 100mm bigger than the final construction. It can be a foundation constructed in various ways, from a concrete pad or plinths, paving, timber, breeze blocks, decking or sleepers, it is highly recommended that a concrete base is laid to prevent restriction being applied to the manufacturers guarantee, it is also wise to chamfer the edges which will sit beyond the cabin, so not water can remain on the surface. The importance is that the place should be level and flat base, ideally this should be at least 50mm above ground level to deter damp. Although the foundation beams and floor joists are impregnated to protect from damp the provision of damp proofing should be considered.


You will not necessarily need to be home for the date of installation, as long as the contractors/installers can gain access. We do ask that you are present once the building is assembled, as our Contractor/Installer will inspect the building with you and then issue you with a Completion Certificate, stating that the building has been assembled and finished correctly. They will also run over with you instructions on the initial treatment of the building, how to adjust doors and windows if necessary and how to look after it to ensure that it remains looking great and in good condition (see After Care for further information).

Whether you decide to erect the cabin yourself, or use of professional fitters, we instruct that the cabin is installed within 7 days of delivery and protected from rain and damp weather until installed. Failure to erect the building in a timely manner may result in the wood twisting, bowing or swelling. The timber used in the manufacture of the cabins are dried and stored in carefully monitored conditions, although they are built for outdoor use they do require weatherproof treatments. Until treatment is applied there is a risk that the timbers may change due to the variation in atmosphere. We can provide a quotation for timber treatment if required, please contact us if you would like to discuss this in more detail.


We find that many of our customers like to build the cabins themselves; this can be done in most cases with only 2 people and some general household tools. Assembly drawings and component specifications are included within the shipment of each cabin. Scale drawings of each component, including measurements and separate assembly drawings for each wall are all included, along with all component codes meaning that there is little or no chance of making a mistake, or installing the incorrect components in the wrong places. All fixings are included within the cabin price; no further hardware should be required. All hardware is hot dip galvanized ensuring that they are long lasting and durable whilst also guarding against rust. If you are not a DIY enthusiast or are simply too busy to have the time then our team of friendly and professional installers are available for your convenience.




23. Exempt and Complying Development
