Denham Waterski Boathouse - One of our biggest ever commercial log cabins!

One of the largest log buildings we created in 2014 was a new boathouse for Denham Waterski Club.

Made from 70mm double tongue and groove timbers this cabin is a massive 12m x 10m with a total height of around 4m

The pallets filled an entire articulated lorry offloaded by a hired telehandler.

Slowing a little as we are now working at height but by the close of day two we are above the windows. Windows are double glazed with a tilt and turn mechanism.

Is is hard to appreciate the sense of scale but if you look at these ridge beams you get an idea of just how big this cabin is. Each timber is 12 metres long and measures around 300mm x 150mm. We calculate each ridge beam weighs somewhere around 250-300kgs!

With the rear wall completed we start to work our way up to a point where the purlins and ridge beam need to go in.
