What is the difference between a shed and log cabin?

Return to all questions

Sheds and log cabins are becoming a more popular purchase option for homeowners, business and keen DIYers, however the differences can sometimes be a little confusing as the purpose of the building can often be the same! 

Our sheds are manufactured in prefabricated panels constructed from 28x44mm framing and utilizing 12mm cladding for the walls, floor and roof. Our cabins are manufactured as individual logs which are built up to create a sturdy structure with a timber thickness of approx. 44mm. 

While both style of building are provided as self-assembly kits, the log cabins do have more components as they do not contain prefabricated elements and take advantage of the strength an interlocking log style build provide.
