Here at Aardvark joinery we are committed to bringing you classic designs in a contemporary fashion, this means that our designs will fit into most surroundings private or commercial. The Bristol log cabin has one of our most popular designs amongst customers who are wanting outside bars and games rooms, the 40mm thick wood and standard stronger 26mm floor make this an ideal building and size for small gatherings and or parties, although the building has only 3 small windows they are perfectly placed to provide maximum light these along with the windows in the doors make for a larger than externally perceived building. Along with this design you can also opt for the optional 44mm log bar that you can get to go inside, the Georgian bars on the windows while optional at no extra cost really set this building off brilliantly. We currently have this building on display in our show room and the optional felt shingle roof sets the look of this cabin with veranda off nicely, so if you would like to come along and view the cabin please feel free to do so. The treated decked front and metal door kick plate brings this whole building out of just being a standard summer house and makes it feel like a proper building. In the past we have seen customers decorate these out as bars, or even living areas for family and they have looked amazing. If you have purchased any of our buildings in the past we always welcome customers finished products so why not email them through to us at the email address below.

Our buildings come with tongue and groove walls, floor and roof, while this can help delay water ingress it cannot stop it 100% on its own. The building will need to be sealed with a HIGH quality water repellent on all parts of the external structure in the grooves edgings everywhere. Regarding the windows you will need to either add a thick layer of protection around the whole window or for added protection add silicone sealant around the unit this will help delay water ingress. Please read our full terms and conditions prior to purchase as it states we cannot cover against water ingress under extreme weather conditions such as government warned storms, hurricanes and other acts of god. Wood is a natural product and will try to absorb moisture so anything you can do to help prevent this after assembly will help as there is only so much we can do at manufacture stage. Regular treatment of the wood is a must to prevent this is even the highest grade treatments will wear off over time. Regarding roofing material this can only protect so much just as with sheds and other garden buildings Felt and felt shingles may not withstand EXTREME weather conditions so may need replacing over time unfortunately we do not cover under ADVERSE weather conditions as described above so any damage done under government warned storms, Extreme winds, hurricanes etc will NOT be covered by Aardvark joinery as the guarantee only covers the building construction and manufacture and only covers faults due to a manufacturing fault and or assembly fault IF performed by our assembly team. Wood is a natural product and will react to changes in temperature, when using heaters in buildings this will cause boards to expand and contract. Therefore over time within the roof especially this will cause the roof felt to stretch and in some circumstances can incur small leaks if this happens you will need to check for loose nails and clear silicon applied.

All Aardvark log cabins come with tongue and groove walls, floor and roof as standard which makes the building secure as well as the interlocking walls giving it that extra protection and keeping the log cabin look throughout. Our models are all put together using Nordic spruce a much better alternative to pine, the soft timber is easy to work with and is much stronger than pine making for a sturdier build and a higher quality product. Spruce provides a higher strength to weight ratio than most other wood types and contains less knots and smaller wood grain than pine which gives it a nicer finish when assembled as a building. We use spruce as it is less likely to warp and twist and has a greater consistency in colour and has its own small built in natural resistance to decay making it a longer lasting product. While we do pressure treat our timber frames the floor, roof and walls are all untreated and with wood being a natural product it will want to draw in moisture from the environment so all our buildings will need to be treated as soon as the building has been assembled with a good quality oil, solvent or wax based quality wood preserver, especially if the building is going to be installed in an open environment  where it is more exposed to the elements.

All our Cabins come with all the wood, screws, windows doors, instructions etc everything need for assembly this means you will require nothing further for assembly. Our Buildings should all take people a day to install using the instructions provided, however if you do not feel confident in installing we do offer an assembly service provided by our experienced joiners. Our assembly service is limited to certain areas so please contact us with your postcode to find out if you qualify and for a quote. If we are assembling the building this will be done within the day.



Before assembly the most important aspect is the base, we recommend for all our buildings that a concrete solid, flat and level pad is used which is a minimum of 20CM bigger than the Floor measurement of the building and a minimum of 4" of concrete thick this will provide the perfect surface to give maximum structural stability and will comply with our terms and conditions. There are many other options available for bases however a concrete pad is the best and most stable option and providing it is solid flat and level will give your building longevity. If you choose for our team to assemble the structure we will require the base to be completed before the assembly date and the area to be free and clear of obstruction. We WILL NOT install any structure directly onto unprepared ground such as grass or soil these buildings can weigh in excess of 3 tonne and if not solid or flat can result in movement within the structure and cause warping, gaps etc. If you have any questions regarding the base  or need any advice please feel free to contact our sales office where one of our team will be more than happy to provide you with the information you require. As per instructions a water proof layer will also need to be put down or to be laid before the concrete is poured to prevent any water being drawn through he concrete and then into the wood.

It’s worth a ride down to buy in person, I managed to get shingles put in the price for my visit 😀 nice to have a chat to the staff too, learnt so much about the wood and process of how they make these buildings, when you look at what you get and the effort that goes into the build process, it’s really good value for money
