Before assembly, we recommend laying a strong, level foundation. This forms the base for all log cabins, makes assembly easier and prolongs the functionality and usable life considerably. Also you can erect your smaller cabin on a post-foundation or just lay it on stones(FIBO, Columbia). Some examples seen below.

All the various log cabins from Skan Holz follow the same simple assembly principle. You just need a little skill with tools, a battery-power drill/screwdriver and a hammer and a little time. Most of the work consists of placing the panels on top of each other and pushing them together. Thanks to the precise, premade components- drilled to Skan Holz wind bracing , tongue and grooved- you will have no difficulty with the assembly. The Skan Holz kit comes with a detailed assembly manual.

aufbau 1 72Install floor beams and fix them to foundation. Wall panels are tongue and grooved for assembly. Tap them into place and make sure they are level. After installing first round measure diagonals and check that they are same measure.

aufbau 2 72Once the house is about half finished, install the windows and doors in relevant places. Align them, given them a tap- finished. There is no need to screw window and door into wall but if you still screw them then please do it only from the bottom of window or door.

aufbau 3 72Assemble and tighten steel bars for wind bracing. Then assemble roof purlins according to assembly guide and screw on roof boards. For roof cover in delivery set we have roofing felt but we also recommend to install second layer(e.g. bitumen schingles) on the felt.  
Finally install gable slats and boards and floor boarding.

aufbau 4 72Vähese aja ning vaevaga on sul õnnestunud ehitada omale praktiline ja kena aiamaja. Nüüd on sul jäänud veel maja katta meelepärase puidukaitsevahendiga.

Soovime sulle paljudeks aastateks rõõmu oma uues Skan Holz'i aiamajas!

With just a few taps, a little skill and time, and you've assembled a practical and attarctive garden structure for your garden. You now can protect it from the weather with your chosen coat of varnish.

We wish you years of of enjoyment with your Skan Holz log cabin.
