2. Select Treatment

Untreated

Log boards are delivered to you untreated, providing you with a natural wood appearance. You will need to treat this annually and after assembly to protect your wood against rot or decay.

Pressure Treated

For increased longevity you can opt for pressure treatment. In a pressurised tank chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot or decay. Upgrading to Pressure Treated means you also get an extended 15 year guarantee.

2. Customise

28mm

Solid profile single Tongue and Groove for strength and durability. Great for medium to large buildings ideal for seasonal use.

44mm

Our 44mm Log Boards are a thick profile wall material, with double tongue and groove built in, giving you a sturdier build, protecting against drafts and water ingress for better weather resistance and insulation. Great for large buildings intended for all year round use.

Single Glazing

Crafted from shatter-resistant plastic (SAN) and suitable for seasonal use. SAN is used for its UV properties and the tougher finish avoids breakages, when compared to glass. Single glazing is the perfect choice for seasonal buildings such as summerhouses and sheds providing plenty of natural light into the building.

Double Glazing

Created from toughened glass, the double glazing is the ideal option for a building which is used all year round. The extra thickness will provide better insulation and keep your building warmer in those colder months of the year.

11mm Tongue and Groove

Our standard roof option, this interlocking roof provides a reliable covering for any building. The Tongue and Groove not only gives your building a stronger roof but also a premium look and feel.

19mm Tongue and Groove

Heavy-duty and long-lasting, our 19mm roof will provide you with extra insulation for those colder months of the year and ideal for larger buildings.

11mm Tongue and Groove

Our Standard flooring option which provides a durable, solid foundation and underfoot to the building. The 11mm option is ideal for less demanding and frequent usage, suitable for lighter intensity purposes like summer houses and other living spaces containing light furniture. The 11mm tongue and groove timber makes this a solid yet suitable, economical option.

19mm Tongue and Groove

1.7 times thicker than our standard 11mm flooring, our premium floor is the perfect choice for higher intensity usage. The construction uses thick 19mm Tongue and Groove timber, which gives you not only the strength, but better insulation against the cold weather. This specific floor is the perfect option if you’re planning on using the building as an everyday use office, gym or games room with heavy objects.

Complete your building with optional shelving, guttering, base options, assembly kits and more.

The front of this log cabin has two wide opening modern windows and tall, fully glazed double doors, giving you a bright and airy space to relax and great views of your garden space all year round. The natural light and tall apex style roof give you a perfect interior space for use as a home office, studio, garden room or even just a great space to relax at home. This garden room is perfect for making the most of your garden area, extending your house and giving you valuable family space.

This wood cabin comes in a range of sizes allowing you to find the optimal one for your space. All of the sizes come with a gorgeous ever hanging apex roof, offering you an extra area of shaded space, helping to keep you protected during the hottest times throughout the summer months. Many of our customers love to customise our buildings to suit their individual style; we offer a range of paints which are great for your log cabin. The garden bar is an amazing addition to the Winchester, transforming this traditional building into a fantastic garden hub and bar space while following the style, construction and materials of the cabin.

This garden cabin adds even more great features with an included 11mm tongue and groove roof and floor, and 28mm log walls which provide a strong structure and insulation for all-year-round use. This large wooden building also comes with roofing felt to increase the buildings' weatherproofing and versatility.

Sizes and Wall Upgrades

The Winchester comes in a wide range of sizes, making it the ideal garden room or garden office for any sized garden. Whether you need something small and cosy, or something bigger to create your dream modern garden office, we have the right-sized Winchester for you. With sizes ranging from 4.0x2.5 metres all the way up to 5.0x4.0m, all you need to do is pick the one perfect for your garden.

There's also the option to upgrade the roof and floorboards up to 19mm for more intensive uses and extra insulation. The building can be upgraded with 44mm walls for even more warmth, making it even better for use during the winter months.

Style

When it comes to a good-looking Garden Studio, the Winchester has all bases covered. Designed in an attractive alpine style, the Winchester features a low-sloped apex roof with a front overhang. This overhang creates a cool-yet-cosy shaded veranda accessible through the cabin's glazed french doors - the perfect space to sit and enjoy the summer sun.

A Fantastic Range of Uses

Whether you're in need of a bespoke garden office, a gym or a yoga studio, or even just a summer house to relax in, the Winchester gives you the extra space you need to spread out. Make the most of your home and garden with this fantastic garden log cabin.

Tongue & Groove Cladding

Made from high-quality timber, our tongue and groove panels are designed to offer a sturdy build as well as a tight seal to protect against water ingress and even harsh weather conditions. Tongue & groove cladding is used whereby the Winchester's roof boards and tongue & groove wall are designed to be weather-resistant and sturdy.

It’s thanks to these quality materials that the Winchester Log Cabin comes with a 10-year guarantee against rot, insect infestation, and decay. And upgrading to a pressure treated model allows us to increase this guarantee to 15 years. By treating timber with chemicals and preservatives in a vacuum, we can ensure even-longer protection against even harsh British weather.

What Is SAN Glazing?

Styrene Acrylonitrile (SAN) glazing is high-strength rigid plastic glazing that’s UV-stable and shatter-resistant. Aesthetically pleasing and safe to handle it comes at an attractive price point.

Toughened, double-glazed glass may be available as an upgrade. Features of toughened glass include added strength versus regular glass and double-glazing with a space between panes to reduce heat transfer.

Planning Permission

Log cabins shouldn't require planning permission as long as they follow these planning regulations:

  • They don't intend to be used as a permanent living space.
  • Their ridge height doesn't exceed 4m (for a dual-pitched roof) or 2.5 at the height of the eaves (which the Kent cabin doesn’t)
  • They don't take up more than 50% of your garden space.
  • They aren't built past the line of the principal of your property.

Luckily for you, the BillyOh Winchester Log Cabin is planning-friendly. Even our larger buildings should only rely on your garden size to come under 'permitted development' on your land. This way, you can make the most of your garden space.

How does my building arrive?

Log cabins are delivered via kerbside delivery as stacks of pre-assembled panels that require fitting together. All panels are designed to be smaller enough to fit in narrow side entrances and can even be transported through houses!

Winchester Customer Testimonials

We love to catch up with our customers to see how they’re getting on with their garden buildings. Check out how some of our customers have decorated their garden building and read what they had to say about it.

Jennifer

"I love the look of the log cabin, it’s made such a difference to our garden. I like the fact that it’s had many uses and that we have this extra space to allow ourselves and our children to use it in whatever way we feel best. We chose Garden Buildings Direct due to the size of the log cabin. I also liked the website and found it easier to use. Our experience was fantastic - Just go for it!"

Jennifer
We chose this building due to its size - it was the largest log cabin on the market at the time. Over the years it’s had many different uses. When we brought it, we intended it to be used by our children as a place to socialise and have sleepovers with friends. This quickly changed, and we invested in a pool table and our log cabin changed into a man cave. A couple of years ago our son claimed the log cabin and reinvented its use and turned it into a gym which has proved to have been very useful over the lockdown period.
It’s definitely changed the view that we have at the bottom of the garden and has somehow made the garden look a lot longer and wider. When we bought the log cabin, we decorated it in neutral shades. Once it was taken over by the boys they put their stamp on the decor by filling it with football memorabilia and a TV. We chose Garden Buildings Direct due to the size of the log cabin. I also liked the website and found it easier to use.
