Santas Grotto Long Sutton Christmas Market 2013 & Peterborough Christmas fair grotto

This year we have been envolved with a couple of Santa’s Grottos, the first was the 2 storey play house from our standard wendy house range that we offer at Hallgate Timber. It was a 10 x 10 (3m x 3m) play house with an upstairs area. This was at the East of England Showground in November.

The second was for EELS who organise some great events for Long Sutton including the Long Sutton Christmas Market this weekend. For this we supplied a 12 x 13 (3.6m x 3.9m) 2 storey play house, this one had a few alterations to the standard design including a bay window to the top floor of the play house and turned colonial spindle to the verandah. The play house for Santa’s Grotto was requested to be in white to be in keeping with the snow theme this year. We also supplied there Santa’s Grotto play house for last year as well, you view details of that here

We offer a wide range of colour choices and options on our play houses and wendy houses and can build almost anything that you can design.

Laminated timber is perfect for building larger log cabins due to the structural integrity of a piece of timber that is formed from smaller laminated section of high quality timber. The residential timber log cabins are available in a range of thicknesses of wall logs. These residential timber buildings can have insulated walls without the the logs of the internal walls of the cabin passing out through to the outside of the residential cabin walls. these means that there is no cold bridge to pass the warmth from the inside of the log cabin to the outside of the log cabin. Insulation can be fitted seamlessly around the walls of the log cabin allowing insulation values that will allow the laminated timber to meet residential standards for U-Values. The laminated timber logs can also be made much longer than standard log cabin interlocking wall systems, this means that you will not need partition walls in the log cabin to give the extra strength along long cabin walls.

Log cabins for Campsites, woodland holiday and lake side resorts

Timber log cabins and sectional timber buildings are becoming more and more fashionable on holiday sites, from small camping sites looking for accommodation that can be used in bad weather to ensure a year round income to large holiday complexes and events centers looking to add extra rooms for busy times.

There are a lot of different types of buildings out there that can fulfill these requirements, however a lot of the small features can make a big difference to your return on investment.

Section buildings:
These types of buildings are generally made from a CLS timber frame construction that is then lined clad and insulated. There are a lot of different options for all of these components to choose from.
For example should you use a rock wool type insulation, a cheaper option of Polystyrene such as Jablite or PIR boards such as Extratherm or Celotex. The initial cost will not make a huge amount of difference to the overall cost of the build, however in the long run if the site owner is paying for the heating cost choosing a cheap poor quality insulator could cost a lot in the long run. Polystyrene is fine for an occasional use building such as a home workshop that is only likely to be used during the day time. If you intend on sleeping in the building, especially in the winter months then you will need more than just this. PIR is a very good insulator giving great u-values using only thin sections so if space in the walls is a at a premium then this could be the best option. If space is not a problem then you may be able to save some money upfront using a rock wool slab of a greater depth than the PIR.
The type and depth of framework should also be considered, is it C16 or C24 grade? For some building 4×2 sections are fine however you may need 6×2 or even 8×2 on larger buildings.
Sectional building are normally fairly fast to assembly on site as most of the construction is done in a factory. Panels can also be painted or pre-finished before delivery to site.
A good breather membrane should be incorporated into the wall construction to help reduce the risk of damp and help as a vapour barrier.
Have a look at our Camping Pod Range for ideas of pre insulated panel buildings.

Twin Skin Buildings:
These use to walls sitting parallel constructed using the traditional interlocking log cabin method of notched timber sections.
The cavity between can then be insulated for added warmth.

Busy start to the year

2013 is looking set to be a good year.

Our supreme workshop range is selling well again this year, we added the supreme to our shed range last year as a standard model due to the demand for very secure heavy duty buildings with extra height that can be used for workshops, gym equipment and secure garden storage.

Due to the success of the supreme workshop we will also be adding a supreme dutch barn to our range by Easter. This will be on 70*45 framing and have extra height like the workshop. The doors on both models are also upgraded to LPD’s heavy duty framed ledge and braced with butt hinges and morticed sash locks.

Our new euro range log cabins, TF range log cabins and DF range log cabins are also proving a big hit. With 28mm thick floors, double glazing on all models with 34mm and thicker walls and the option to choose your wall log thickness from 34mm, 45mm, 70mm and twin skin log walls.

We took an order for a twin skin 45mm + 45mm residential cabin this weekend. This will be a full install project including concrete base, insullation to walls, floor and ceiling and a shingle roof.
