I bought my cabin last May and love it. I spent 2 months staining, building and wiring it all myself over the summer and enjoyed ever minute of it. As the instructions state getting the base right is paramount to a trouble free build. I gave the base beems 2 coats off Bitumin (I am a painter to trade) and sat them on DPC on top off slabs. Inside i fixed foil backed plasterboard to the walls and varnished the roof. I gave the outside off the logs 1 coat before building to seal the tounge and groove edges, but be carfull if you are putting clear varnish on the inside. I then gave it 2 coats off Sadoiln Natural once built. I went for the shingle roof tiles which were worth the extra cost as they were easy to fit and look great. With hind-sight i would have paid the extra for the double glazing. Being in the building trade for 28 years may have helped in building this top quality Log Cabin but with clear instructions you cant go wrong.
