Create your perfect garden building, step by step.

Step 1: Choose your product

You can choose from three different categories:

  • Summerhouse / log cabin
  • Garage
  • Gazebo

Our summerhouses are built using the same system as our log cabins. The system is manufactured with a corner cross-over joint that is both wind and water resistant. We can normally produce your log cabin to the exact size you require, with almost limitless design possibilities.

After selecting your preferred category, you should select your desired template. It is possible to narrow your search using the filters. When you have found your desired template, click on ‘start design’ and let your imagination run free.

Step 2: Sizes, walls and canopies

You should select the shape, cross-section and dimensions of your garden building here. Click on the wall with your mouse to select it, which will allow you to click and drag it to the left or right, as well as increasing or decreasing its dimensions.

Click on the wall and you will see a list of options. If you select the canopy option then you can increase or decrease the size of the canopy by dragging the large dotted line.

Click on the wall or dotted line to see the options available.

Step 3: Roof

Here you can choose between the various roof styles. Select your preferred roof type. If you choose an apex roof, then heavy duty shingles are included. You have a choice of five colours: black, blue, brown, green or red.

Step 4: Door types

Select the door you would like. The plus (+) signs which appear on the floorplan indicate where the selected door would fit. Click on the + sign in your preferred spot and the door will be positioned.

Step 5: Window types

At the bottom of the screen you can select windows. All of our windows are fitted with double-glazed units as standard. Select your desired window and add it to the plan by clicking on the +. Would you like additional windows? Select another window and add it in the same way. The ‘+’ indicates the locations on your plan where the selected window will fit.

Step 6: Colour treatments

Your log cabin, summerhouse or canopy can also be treated. Here you can choose from the various colours and treatments available. Every treatment has its own benefits.

  • Spray pre-treatment: in white, graphite grey, brown or light grey.
  • Pressure treatment: in brown .
  • Paint treatment: in dusty-grey (RAL 7037) or pure white (RAL 9010).

Select your desired treatment and our configurator will automatically adjust this in your 3D model. You can choose a maximum of three different colours per building.

More information about treatments can be found in the configurator itself or on our options webpage that outlines the various choices available for your summerhouse or gazebo.

Step 7: Other options

Now that the basis of your log cabin, summerhouse, garage or carport is complete, you can select the finishing touches. There are many options that can be added, for instance, an internal floor or cut-ins for doors and windows. All the options available can be viewed and selected in this step. It is also possible to order additional paint at this point.

Step 8: Completion

If you click on the (shopping trolley) you will be able to see the selections you have made at every step. You can see a breakdown of the details for each step by clicking on the (information button). If you need any help with your design, just click on the (question mark).
