Our Timber Log Cabin Kits are the best quality  “Cabin Kits” on the Australian market today. They are incredibly versatile, making their usage possibilities endless.

Our Timber Cabins are European designed and engineered to the highest quality. 1000’s of cabins are made every year. We have adapted them perfectly for the Australian climate and weather conditions. Guaranteed to last with minimal maintainance.

The cabins are built from A grade Kiln dried precision milled slow grown ‘Nordic Spruce Pine’ timber that is proven to stand the tests of time. Specifically engineered to repell water and keep a stable temprature inside the cabin. The tight grain structure due to slow growing in winter climates mean the timber is very slow to burn. Our Garden studios and granny flats are very easy to assemble and can be built on a slab or raised on posts. Only “FSC” “Forestry Commision Certified Plantation Timber” are used for the construction of the timber cabins.
