Lugarde Summerhouses, Log Cabins, Garages & Verandas

Keops Interlock

Type of wood
All Lugarde summerhouses, log cabins, garages & verandas are made from top quality Northern European pine. The wood is sourced from countries where there are strict government regulations in place to ensure that more trees are planted than cut and the ecological balance is maintained.

The wood is allowed to dry to a moisture content of approximately 13-15% to prevent the wood from warping as much as possible.
Roof & Floor Insulation
If you plan on using your summerhouse or log cabin for more than just a garden shed, then you may want to consider floor or roof insulation or both. Both types of insulation are easy to fit and should be considered if you want a guestroom or office. We offer our Keops Interlock roof and floor insulation, details of which can be found on our Keops Interlock Log Cabins website. Other insulation options include upgrading to double glazed windows & doors. Contact us for more information or to discuss your requirements.
Windows & Doors
Lugarde offer a huge range of door and window options. These include with or without cross bars, double glazing is now standard, lead strips, casement windows, side-hung windows, tilt & turn windows, fixed windows, windows with ventilation grates and folding doors. There may be a price charge for certain modifications. Please see the Lugarde brochure for all the options available. The double frame cross bars for windows and doors are clipped on for easy maintenance. They are easy to remove should you want to clean or paint the windows and doors.
A solid level base is very important for all Lugarde buildings. We recommend either a concrete base or building slabs. The laying of perfectly level foundations is the most important part of the preparation work. Done incorrectly this can lead to cracks in the cabin and doors and windows not functioning properly.
Lugarde offer a five year warranty on manufacturing or construction faults. This does not include damage caused by human intervention, animals or natural disasters. Complaints as a result of poorly laid foundations or faulty assembly (if carried out independently), poor maintenance and/or the wrong maintenance materials do not fall under the warranty.
Planning Permission & Building Regulations
Many types of structure can be erected in your garden without planning permission provided it can be considered a ‘garden structure’. Please read our guide on planning laws and also building regulations to find out if these affect you. If you are unsure we recommend you contact your local planning office.
