Chris, Derby

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very please with the product, exellent quality.
Bad points:
The instructions could have been clearer, the generic instructions included are for a square cabin with a different floor and roof to the corner cabin, not enough nails are provided for fixing the roof tiles (ther is no room for error as you only get the right number of tiles!). The base frame for the floor and walls comes as 3 meter lenghts and has to be cut and assembled by the buyer.

Jane, Nailsea

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It is pretty, and as a summer house quite effective.
Bad points:
This is not a simple kit to put together. While it was relatively easy to put up the walls, keeping doorframe and windows true was difficult. Putting on the roof and the 'shingles' was a difficult job, needing a fit and agile person to finish it off.

EDWARD, BELLSHILL NOT A DIY NUT

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A WELL DESIGNED UNIT, LOOKS GOOD. VERY GOOD VALUE FOR THE MONEY. ROOF LOOKS FANTASTIC AND EASY TO PUT ON. GOOD SIZE FLOOR SPACE,
IDEAL FOR THOSE LONG SUMMER NIGHTS.
Bad points:
THE PLANS ARE A BIT VAGUE, NO CLEAR START POINT. WOOD SHOULD BE NUMBERED FOR ID PURPOSES. THE LEFT AND RIGHT, ON EIGHTER SIDE OF THE DOOR PANNELS COULD EASILY BE PUT ON BACK TO FRONT. (UPSIDE DOWN).

Linda, Norfolk Practical

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Substantial materials. Quick delivery time. Quailty fittings supplied. Nothing missing from pack. Well designed. Very attractive to look at. Looks as if it should have been more expensive.
Bad points:
3 sets of instructions - all differ slightly because some are generic rather than specific. Would have been better if each piece had been coded to correspond with the instructions. Think that some people would struggle to self assemble.

Manufacturer's Description

Whether you want to use your Finnlife Valo Log Cabin as a guest room, hobby hideaway, or personal library you’ll find the Valo is more than up to the task. Once the door is closed you’ll find yourself in a world of your own. The Finnlife Valo is about going back to basics: just you and nature.

Situate your Valo south-facing and the sun never seems to set. A wonderfully welcoming log cabin like this catches the sun at almost every angle. From early in the morning to late in the day, sunlight will stream through those massive side windows; In the middle of the day, you’ll get warm lovely sunshine right through the doors.If it gets too hot, you can always swing open the doors and windows. Too cold, simply shut them tight to keep the warmth inside. Even on a dull or rainy day, the Valo’s fabulous 90-degree views will lure you into the garden.

This log cabin’s components are precision-cut from quality Scandanavian softwood for a perfect fit, first time and every time. The timber comes from well managed forests where indigenous wildlife and forest industries co-exist – and where the rate of tree planting exceeds the rate of felling.

The Valo comes with these features as standard:

  • 28mm Log Thickness
  • Square Roof Shingle Tiles
  • Perspex Glazing
  • Made from Scandinavian White softwood
  • 38mm wall logs
  • Timber joists
  • Pre-cut floor & roof boards
  • Roofing shingles
  • Reinforced corner and wall battens
  • All necessary fixtures and fittings
  • Illustrated instructions

Look out for optional extras:

  • Guttering Kit
  • Underfloor Heating
