High quality garden log cabins guaranteed
With a log cabin shed or log cabin with side shed from Lugarde you have a definite quality guarantee. We are market leader in the UK and the Netherlands and, thanks to our extensive dealer and supplier network, we keep on growing.
To ensure the quality of our products, we include a lot of extras as standard in our wooden log cabin prices, for example shingles, HR++ double glazing and three-point locking systems.
Top-quality wooden log cabins
For our log cabins we use high-quality spruce from northern Europe. Due to the cold climate the trees grow slowly, resulting in the growth rings being close together, which makes the timber more stable and durable. Additionally all our timber is kiln dried in special drying rooms to a moisture content of approximately 14%–16%.
This reduces the shrinkage of the wood tremendously. Furthermore our summer houses all have wind- and water-tight corner joints.
Custom log cabins
Our garden log cabins come in various shapes, sizes and models. You can choose from a 10×10 log cabin, 10×8 log cabin and more. If you would prefer a smaller garden garden room due to a small garden that is no problem at all, as our smallest cabins measure just 240 x 180 cm. If that is not small enough for your garden, you might prefer to design your own, custom log cabin using our unique 3D-configurator.
You can design a cabin to perfectly meet your needs. You can even design your own garden office.
The best thing about our 3D-configurator is that there is no additional cost for your bespoke design! Not only can you choose the perfect size, but you can also add doors and windows, select your preferred roof type and opt for the wood treatment that best meets your needs.
As well as different sizes, our wooden log cabins also come in two different shapes, rectangular or square, allowing you to opt for the one that best fits your garden.3D-configurator
Log cabin roof types
What type of roof would you like on your log cabin? When choosing the right roof for your log cabin you can select from an apex roof, an asymmetrical roof, a flat roof or a pent roof. Every roof has its own advantages.
An apex roof, for example, is supplied with the roof itself, purlins and the complete package of standard fittings, metal components, fascia boards and shingles. The shingles come in a choice of five different colours: black, red, brown, green and blue. The flat roof is delivered as an EPDM package as standard.
Additionally you will receive a wide aluminium roof trim, high-quality EPDM roof felt, a water outlet and a bitumen kit. Our EPDM roof covering is extremely durable, requires minimal care and is very resistant to UV radiation.
An asymmetrical roof has two uneven sides. It is delivered with a luxurious ridge cover made of metal and roof shingles in a choice of five colours: black, red, green, brown and blue. Lastly our pent roof has a solid roof purlin that slopes away to the back. Like the flat roof, it is delivered as an EPDM package.
The log cabin system
For our log cabins we use the log-cabin construction system. This system utilises a corner crossover connection joint that is both wind and water resistant. The log cabin system is available in 28 mm, 44 mm and 68 mm wall thicknesses. The 28mm and 44 mm logs have a diamond-cut end effect as standard.
Our 68 mm thick wall board buildings have a double tongue-and-groove profile for greater stability, with straight cut ends. The 44 mm thickness logs are also available with straight-cut log ends. Our log cabins are not available in pentagonal or octagonal shapes.
Log cabin insulation options
To ensure that you can still use it in the winter, it is important to insulate your log cabin. Lugarde offers three types of insulation: roof, floor and wall. The floor insulation material consists of thermal boards of 600 mm x 1200 mm x 40 mm in size.
The sheets can be fitted between the pressure-treated floor beams. The floorboards are installed on top of the floor beams and insulation, ensuring an air gap is left to avoid the possibility of water transfer.
Our roof insulation, on the other hand, varies depending on the roof type. For an apex roof, for example, the insulation sheets are always installed on top of the roof boards and under the roof covering. In contrast, with a flat roof, there is the option to install the insulation material on the underside of the roof by fitting an additional false ceiling.
Our wall insulation comprises an internal wall of 19-mm-thick tongue-and-groove wall boards. These are pressure-treated beams that attach to the external wall boards and come with special metal clips for the beams that allow the external and internal walls to move independently of each other.
The possibilities of log cabins are endless
Have you ever thought about using your log cabin as additional living space or maybe transforming it into a garden office? A log cabin is so much more than just a nice addition to your garden.
For example, you could use your log cabin as a home office: there’s enough space in one to have clients or business partners over for meetings, while still being close to your family. Another ideal use for your cabin is as a home gym.
The wooden structure of your log cabin will encourage you to relax, improving your health. Of course, you could also turn your cabin into a ‘man cave’ by transforming it into a band, games or sports room; or into a ‘she shed’ by transforming it into a sewing, reading or craft room.
When it comes to the interior of your cabin there are no limits! So make your decision and select the right option for your log cabin!

Our gazebos are made of wood from northern countries, with a cold climate. This cold climate causes the trees to grow slower, resulting in finer annual rings. This ensures an even and strong structure of the wood.
In the summer a log cabin shed is the perfect place to sit while having a BBQ or to hold a summer cocktail party. The cabin can easily be decorated to suit your party’s theme and, with the right-sized cabin, you’ll have enough space to fit all your friends and family. In the winter, thanks to its insulation, you’ll be able to use your cabin as a cosy place to enjoy a glass of eggnog or mulled cider, or a mug of hot cocoa. Wrap yourself in a nice blanket and enjoy the falling snow in your garden!
