The log cabin as a relaxation area
The trend in recent years is to set up a relaxation area in the garden. Thus, it is increasingly transformed into a home theater or fitness studio. Even a music studio is among the possibilities if during insulation the acoustics are taken into account. Of course, a log cabin in the garden offers many more options for use. How about a meditation room? A game room? A workshop? With some imagination, the possibilities are endless.

What is important to know about a log cabin?
A few points are important to know in advance before you proceed to make a choice of a wooden log cabin and buy it. Read more details below.
What is the delivery time of a log cabin?
In spring and summer delivery times can be quite long. Also for treatments like impregnation and spraying delivery times in those months can easily be 6-8 weeks. So it is smart to order your wooden garden building early if you want to enjoy your outdoor living space early in the year. In January and February, we also have regular early-bird discounts.
Scarcity in log cabins and delivery times
At the moment stocks of prefab log cabins of all brands are very limited and waiting times for sold-out models are long (10-16 weeks). Please note, preferably choose untreated, with impregnation or spraying the delivery time will increase even more. Click on log cabin direct for the models that we can deliver directly (untreated) from our own stock.
What type of wood is a log cabin made of?
Log cabins are available in different types of wood. Each type of wood has its own advantages and properties.
Log cabin from Scandinavian pine (most common)
Log cabins are available in spruce in the types of impregnated spruce and untreated spruce. Whitewood must also be treated when impregnated. Impregnation protects the wood against fungi and other wood-destroying processes, but does not have a moisture-regulating effect and does not provide wind and watertight seal on the walls and corners. Only impregnate a wooden log cabin is insufficient to enjoy your wooden house for many years. Gadero has had very good experiences with garden shed stain for years.
Embalan/Embadecor is a very heavy-duty quality stain in a variety of transparent and opaque colors. This one-pot system does not require any other pre-treatments and post-treatments. If you paint your wooden gazebo the right way, you only need to repeat it once every five years. Embalan and Embadecor log cabin paint are also available in our online shop.
Larchwood – Douglas fir log cabin
A wooden house made of larch or Douglas wood does not need to be painted. The wood is very durable due to its high resin content and will last 20-25 years untreated. However, the wood should not come into contact with the ground and a good foundation is required. You should also keep the bottom free of splashing dirt. However, you can then immediately sit with your feet up and enjoy the result!
Larch / Douglas wood may and can of course be painted if you would like.
What wood thickness do you need for your log cabin?
The wooden garden buildings from Gadero are available in different wall thicknesses, whereby the use is decisive for the desired wall thickness. For the storage of garden tools, garden cushions, and garden furniture you can buy a garden house with a wall thickness of less than 28mm very suitable. In the Dutch climate, wooden houses with 28mm wood thickness can be used mainly as summer houses. These are mainly garden sheds with a smaller surface area. If you want to use your summerhouse all year round, we recommend you choose a summerhouse with a minimum wood thickness of 40-45mm. For the less warm days, you can install a heater to use your summerhouse also during the cold winter days. Would you rather create a guesthouse or office in your garden? A wall thickness of 70mm has an insulating effect, which ensures a pleasant indoor climate and is, therefore, the best choice in this case. These log cabins are also delivered with insulated glass as standard, so only the floor and roof still need to be insulated to create a pleasant living environment in your log house.
Which roof type fits your log cabin?
Do you want a modern or a classic log cabin model? In the online shop of Gadero, you can buy different variants for the roof. A log cabin with a gable roof is the classic pointed roof variant that finds its place in every garden. The flat roof has a timeless look and fits into many modern gardens. The pent roof (sloping to one side) has a compact look but offers all the space you want. And there are modern variants with an arched roof. Very special!
In terms of roofing, EPDM is the most durable for flat roofs, for pitched roofs shingles are inexpensive, but tile roofing will last the longest. Covering your log cabin with a gable roof with wooden cedar shingles also looks very luxurious.
What extras are available for the log cabin?
A wooden log cabin can be executed very luxuriously. Log cabins can be extended with a canopy and additional storage space. The sitting area, mancave, and lawn mower all find their place here. There are also variants available with balustrade so that the seating area is closed off and the veranda appears to be a partition of the garden. Would you like something else to go with your dream cabin? Ask the team at Gadero if it is possible. We will gladly help you realize your dream log cabin.
What color best suits the log cabin?
That is, of course, entirely your choice! But think about the result you have in mind. Do you want a log cabin in the garden that stands out or just blends in with the surroundings? Do you have a certain color of flowers in your garden that you want to bring out? What are the color of your house and any other outbuildings? And do you want to use one or more colors for the paint job?
Gadero only sells Tuindeco and Karibu log cabins, so garden sheds of high quality. Therefore we also advise you to choose from top quality Embalan or Embadecor stain to treat all your wood.
