Testimonial; “We are delighted with our log store: it is built to last, looks great and is made from local, sustainably-sourced wood. Rob is an excellent craftsmen, has good design sense and was very tidy. He was transparent about the cost of materials and reasonably priced. We will definitely turn to him on future projects.” Rupert Widdicombe, Forest Row.
A completed Log Store looking great filled with logs. A similar process to this following sequence could lead to a great Workshop or Tool Store
As with the garden rooms often concrete blocks make ideal foundations and can be used to make a quick and firm base. The posts fitted on metal feet, this keeps the whole structure raised and out of contact with the soil and water.
The wall frames are constructed flat and then raised into position, to be temporarily supported by braces.
Diagonal bracing ties the structure together and then the roof joists can go on.
The roof boards are 12 mm OSB and provide both a deck for the roofing felt and also brace the structure.
Once the frame is finished the cladding can go on, this could be vertically or horizontally and especially for storing logs it is best to leave air gaps.
Roofing felt goes on and any guttering.
Finally fill with logs, and yes that's me, Rob Sim!
