Important: Whilst all care is taken to deliver to you the best possible product with excellent customer service, Timber is a natural product and as such it may expand and contract from time to time dependant on air temperature and moisture. We suggest you seal the exterior of the cabin directly after construction with a good quality undercoat and exterior paint. We also suggest to seal the interior soon after completion to protect your new Cabin Life Cabin. Some Cabins may have minor imperfections and minor alterations may have to be carried out on site. Timber may vary slightly in colour.
