LOG CABINS

Only the best timber is used for production of by Shire for production of their Log Cabins.  Timber is imported from Russia and Sweden where trees are grown very slowly, resulting in the best material with less branches and therefore few knots.  The timber is milled at Shire’s mill in Wisbech which means Shire are able to quality control timber from start to finished product.

Shire have invested huge sums to ensure the logs are produced using the latest technology and to a high level of accuracy as all logs are designed to interlock with the logs above and below.

Shire are one of the few manufacturers who operate out of the UK.

Log cabins are NOT made in panels.  Individual boards are supplied that need to be assembled on site to create a beautiful finish inside and out.

Doors
