3D configurator: step by step instructions
Step 1: Choose your product
Here you can choose from three different categories:
- Summer house or Log cabin
You also can chose out of our 4 systems: Prima- Pro- Panel- or Logcabinsystem. For our houses build in Prima System we use a special patented technique where the milled wall sections slot perfectly into the corresponding corner uprights without any screws or nails. This means that the corners of the summer houses are straight. The configurator will help you make the right choice. You can see all possibilities immediately and start building your own summerhouse, gardenoffice or garage.
After selecting the category you want, you can then select the desired template. You can narrow your search using the filters. When you have found the desired template, click ‘start design’ to begin.
Step 2: Walls and posts
Here you can select the shape, dimension and section of your garden building. You can change the dimension by dragging the walls inwards and outwards. At this stage you also have the opportunity to add a canopy, extension or sliding glass wall. You can add these options by clicking on the walls of the building.
If you select a sliding glass wall, you can also expand and reduce this wall. When choosing a canopy, you can make it as long as you like. You can also select your own choice of posts and optional decorative bases. The configurator also offers you the opportunity to design balustrades.
Step 3: Roof
Choose your desired roof type. If you choose the apex roof, you get free roof shingles, which are available in five colours.
Step 4: Doors

Step 6: Factory treatment
Your summer house, log cabin or canopy can also be treated. Every treatment has his own benefits.
We can finish your building in three different ways:
- Spray treatment in transparent white, Oak brown, Light grey, Graphite grey and colourless.
- Pressure treatment in green or brown (not available for summer houses).
- Paint treatment (transparent or opaque) in Dusty grey (RAL 7037), Graphite grey (RAL 7021), Pure white (RAL 9010), Pebble grey (RAL 7032), Quartz grey (Ral 7039) or Transparant oak.
Select your desired colour and our configurator will automatically add this to your 3D example. You can choose a maximum of three different colours per building.
You can find more information about the treatments in the configurator itself or on our page with options for your summer house or gazebo.
Step 7: A range of other options
Now the base of your summer house, log cabin, garage or gazebo is ready, you can select the finishing. Many of our options are included in the price, such as roof shingles and chrome or brass door fittings. Buildings with a pyramid roof are finished with a metal cap and mostly woth a chrome ball.
