DescriptionAbout The Waltons 3m x 2.5m Log Cabin:
The 3m x 2.5m Log Cabin creates the perfect way to make the most of your garden, while in the comfort of the indoors. This elegant and stylish garden building is ideal for those who want to enjoy their garden and the summer weather while being shaded from the sun. Featuring floor to ceiling, glazed windows to the front and the side, this building floods with an abundance of light and air, and becomes a vibrant and inviting space for you to enjoy. We use a premium styrene material called SAN styrene for the glazing on this cabin, a high strength, safe and shatterproof alternative to glass.
This modern log cabin is manufactured using high quality, 19mm log boards that interlock to form a rigid and strong construction. The interlocking system creates a tight seal against water ingress and draughts. The roof and floor are formed using 12mm tongue and groove boards that lock together to create a hard-wearing and heavy-duty finish. A SAN styrene glazed opening door is supplied with lock and key, to ensure you can lock your building and belongings safely away. High quality roofing is supplied, to protect your building from The British weather!
This log cabin is made using only ethically sourced, FSC® certified timber and is made here in the UK by our highly skilled team. The cabin is supplied un-treated and will require a coat of high quality timber treatment once installed. The log cabin will be delivered as individual tongue and groove timber lengths and should be constructed on a firm and level base.Making the most of The Waltons 3m x 2.5m Log Cabin:

Where can I find the exact measurements of my log cabin?
Before purchasing your new log cabin be sure to check the specific measurements of its size in the Specification section of the product listing. As often in product titles, we round up measurements just so it’s easier for you to find your perfect garden building.
How will my new log cabin arrive?
Your new log cabin will be supplied as a flat-pack DIY kit with full instructions. If you’re taking on the project yourself, be sure to check out our Self-Installation advice page for plenty of helpful tips.
We strongly advise if you are planning on using a third party installer to construct your log cabin that you do not book their services until you receive and are happy with your garden building. As we do not cover any third party cost in the instance of a failed delivery or a damaged item preventing installation.
Please note that this log cabin has been dressed to look its very best in our product images. Any accessories or fixtures featured are not supplied with this garden building.
Does my new log cabin come with any guarantees?
As standard, this log cabin includes a 1 year Manufacturer’s guarantee, as well as a 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee*. Just make sure to follow the product instructions and our manufacturers recommendations and your guarantee will be good to go.
What does my 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee cover?
Our entire range of log cabins benefit from our 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee. This will cover your garden building against fungal decay as long as the conditions of the guarantee have been followed.
These conditions include treating your new garden building with a high-quality timber preservative and waterproof top coat.Treatments of this sort should be applied as soon as your garden building has been constructed, and reapplied annually thereafter. This will enable you to maintain your 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee and will keep your log cabin in tip-top condition!
Please note that our 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee does not cover your garden building from the movement of timber that takes place over time. This includes; the twisting, warping and splitting of timber.
For more information on our 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee please refer to our Terms & Conditions.
Does my new log cabin require planning permission?
We work hard to design all of our garden buildings to adhere to the planning permission guidelines. However, we cannot guarantee that planning permission will not be required. Therefore, before constructing your garden building we advise checking with your local authorities.
What base do I require for my new log cabin?
A flat, level base is essential when building your new log cabin. We recommend the following bases; concrete, slab paving, ground-level bearers or a wooden frame.
Prior to building your log cabin be sure to check your base is level in both directions. If the base of your log cabin is not level when it is constructed it will cause the building to twist and warp with the natural movement of the timber. Therefore, it is really important to adjust your base accordingly to achieve this before constructing your garden building.
For more information on how to build a suitable base take a look at our handy guide. How do I care for my new log cabin? To ensure your log cabin stands the test of time it’s important to follow the guidance outlined in your building’s product instructions and Manufacturer’s Recommendations.
We have also created these super handy Maintenance Guides to help you take care of your cabin. They are full of our expert advice and useful tips so you can enjoy your log cabin for years to come!
However, if you need any further support, don't worry we are on hand to help. Just give our friendly Customer Service Team a call on 0800 029 1000.
How do I care for my garden building’s Styrene windows?
A clear film is used to protect your Styrene windows. Once your log cabin is installed and treated this will need to be removed. This can be done by simply scoring around the edge of the window and peeling back the plastic covering inside and out.
The windows of our garden buildings are designed to fit well. However, over time due to the natural movement of the timber small gaps can occur. To prevent this from occuring make sure to seal your Styrene windows with a silicone sealant inside and out.
To see exactly how to do this, take a look at our Protect Your Shed - Silicone Window Sealant video.

Our Log Cabins work a little differently! Rather than cladding that attaches to an internal framing, the log boards lock into each other with a tongue and groove joint, board to board, as the building is being constructed. The tongue and groove joint forms a tight seal against the weather, reducing the risk of water ingress and draughts. We offer our cabins with a choice of 19mm, 28mm, 34mm or 44mm thickness, getting stronger and more robust with each thickness.
Our Roof &Floor Materials
Scroll through to learn more about the different roof and floor materials that are available for our log Cabins.
12mm Tongue &Groove Boards
Toungue & Groove boards make the perfect roof and floor for frequently used buildings as well as those that will be storing heavier items such as work benches, tools or furniture. The boards interlock to form a tight seal, helping them spread the load within the building. We'd always recommend upgrading to tongue and groove boards if you plan to spend a lot of time within the building or if you're storing heavier items.
16mm Tongue &Groove Boards
The thicker Tongue & Groove boards are used for our more premium range of log cabins and insulated rooms. Working in the same method as the 12mm boards, the weight from your belongings is shared between the interlocking boards. Ideal for holding heavy office equipment, exercise machines or large pieces of furniture, these thick interlocking boards will remain strong and robust.
Scroll through to learn more about the different glazing styles available for our log Cabins.
Double glazing is constructed using two panes of glass, separated by a small gap. Our double glazed windows offer excellent heat retaining qualities and greater sound proofing, and by upgrading to double glazing, you increase the year-round usability of your building!
High StrengthSAN styrene
High strength SAN styrene glazing is a thick and strong material that while being safe and shatterproof, gives the visual appearance of glass. This premium styrene offers great value without comprising on the look.
Natural Wood Characteristicts
As wood is a natural material it may be affected by the following:
Shrinkage & Warping
The timber used in the construction of your garden building will have retained some of its natural moisture content. The moisture content of the timber will vary, depending upon prevailing environmental conditions, which will result in the components either naturally expanding or contracting. As the components dry out shrinkage may occur. A good waterproofing treatment from the start is the best protection to minimise the effect of moisture loss/intake.
Damp & Mould
During the winter months, cold and damp conditions can result in an increased amount of moisture within your garden building, especially when used infrequently. Condensation can form on the timber and other items stored within your garden building. If left this moisture is likely to cause mould and mildew. To prevent the build-up of moisture, we recommend leaving the door or windows of your building open from time to time, to allow the fresh air to circulate. We also advise against storing wet or damp items in your garden building as this will also increase the level of moisture in the building. If mould or mildew does start to form within your building we recommend using an anti-mould cleaner to remove it and to prevent it spreading, which if left untreated could permanantly damage your garden building.
Splits, Cracks & Knots
Small splits and cracks in some components or holes may appear where knots shrink and fall out. This will not affect the structure of your garden building however if you wish to fill them this can be easily done using any good quality wood filler
Sap is naturally occurring in wood and may appear in some boards of your garden building. If you wish to remove the sap, we advise waiting until it is dry and then using a sharp knife to carefully remove it. If the removal of the sap causes a hole in the timber, we recommend using a good quality wood filler to fill it.
Please be aware that these are natural timber characteristics which in most cases will not impact the structure or function of the garden building, therefore are not considered as product defects (as outlined within our Terms & Conditions). If you require further advise or information please contact our friendly Customer Services Team.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I choose a delivery slot?
We will contact you on the morning of your confirmed delivery date by email and/or SMS with a 2-hour delivery time slot. We aim to meet these delivery times but during busy periods, deliveries may take a little longer, however we always work hard to keep delays to a minimum.
What access is needed for my delivery?
Our drivers are only contracted to provide kerbside drop offs and deliveries. They will NOT bring any of our orders through your home. A driver may offer to take an order further; for instance a back garden but this is ONLY at their own discretion. If you have added our installation service to your order please be aware that they will require full access to your garden. Our installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer's home. If you have any questions about access or you live in a restricted access zone please contact our sales team on 0800 029 1000. Our team will be able to provide you with more information and specific building information.
Will I need to help my delivery driver?
Our drivers DO NOT need your help during a delivery. They will not ask for your help and they can manage all the items themselves. We are not insured to cover any customer injuries and therefore we ask you NOT to help or try and help our drivers while they make a delivery.
