 General

First class Northern European pine is the foundation of all LUGARDE summerhouses and log cabins. In these countries governmental authorities exercise stringent supervision to ensure that more trees are planted than are cut down, so that the ecological balance perfectly is maintained. Lugarde guarantee that we will choose only the highest quality materials and accessories, in the manufacture of our summerhouse and log cabin garden buildings. The assembling of a LUGARDE summerhouse or log cabin does not require more than average technical and do-it-yourself skills, so even you can assemble this summerhouse from the floor up to the roof.  As a matter of course all summerhouses and log cabins come with assembly instructions. At an additional charge however you can leave the assembly work to us.  Please contact us for a quote.

 Building Permission

Depending on the local authorities and size of your Lugarde building you may need planning consent if you intend to build a summerhouse or log cabin in your garden. Your local council will give you any information you need. We can supply building drawings of all LUGARDE summerhouses and log cabins free of charge.

 Delivery

All LUGARDE summerhouses and log cabins are packed in an environment-friendly film. Delivery will be direct from us or Lugarde. In case home delivery has been agreed, the truck delivers the package at the road side.

 Preparation

A solid foundation is necessary for the installation of your Lugarde summerhouse or log cabin. Depending on soil type it has to be removed to a depth of approx. 15 cm. Next fill in with yellow sand, compact or vibrate and than lay concrete slabs or put down concrete. Make sure that the top of the floor is always above ground level and that it is absolutely level. This will prevent you from unnecessary problems. It is advisable to apply a layer of gravel around your summerhouse or log cabin to prevent water from splashing up. If you require further details, please contact us and we will gladly offer our advice.

 Assembly

LUGARDE includes clear assembly instructions with every summerhouse and log cabin garden building. At an additional charge however you can also have the installation work done by us.

 Finish

All LUGARDE summerhouses and log cabin garden buildings are delivered untreated.

New for 2011, Lugarde buildings are now available with an optional transparent colour stain in blue-grey, white, brown or green. Each building is pre-treated with a colourless base before the colour is applied. With this treatment the building will be maintenance free for up to 2-5 years, dependant on local weather conditions and offers a building that is instantly weather proof after installation. The entire building is treated including all the parts that are unreachable after installation.

 Walls, Roof and floor
 Floor
A 19 mm thick pinewood floor is available as an option, including high-pressure-impregnated floor joists.
  


Walls
All summerhouses in the Prima and Fifth Avenue series consist of a unique 3=1 system, developed by LUGARDE, where the moulded wall elements slide perfectly into the corresponding corner posts. The corner posts are reinforced with an invisible aluminium strip, a system which improves the durability of the summerhouse under all weather conditions. The assembling system is simple and durable, and all wall elements are erected without nails or screws. The thickness of the wall elements is 28 mm. for summerhouses up to 300 cm and 44 mm for the models from 350 cm. For summerhouses with a wall thickness of 28 mm the wall elements are placed on pressure-impregnated foundation beams of 44x70 mm. Buildings with a wall thickness of 44 mm are placed on foundation beams of 70x70 mm.

 

Corner post

Roof
For summerhouses in the octagonal range up to 300 cm the roof is made up of 8 ready-to-use elements, both for thatched roofs and for shingle roofs. In all summerhouses from 350 cm across, the roof comes as a do-it-yourself construction kit and includes rafters, roof elements, shingles and decorative moulding (if applicable). The roof covering is made of 19 mm thick pine wood boards, which are completely prepared. In models over 350 cm across thatching has to be done by local professional thatchers. The roof elements however are included in the delivery.

 Shingles
We offer a choice of 5 shingle colours: green, red, brown, black and bluish-grey for your Lugarde garden building.  Unless otherwise requested all summerhouses and log cabins will be supplied with green shingles. You can also opt for hexagonal shingles in the colours black and red or copper shingles.
For the additional charge of these shingles please contact us.

 Windows and Doors

You can combine or enlarge the doors and windows for your Lugarde garden building as you please, as long as the dimensions correspond to the summerhouse or log cabin (i.e. will fit the wall size) of your choice. Should you choose a size which differs from the standard dimensions there will be an additional modification cost for each alteration.  All garden buildings with 44 mm wall elements can be delivered with double glazed (16 mm) windows and doors. The relevant types are window PE44 and door PE45. All single doors are supplied with standard opening left sided (as seen from the outside). If you want the door opening on the right, please order it that way. In case of double doors, the right door will open first. During construction the doors and windows are slipped over the wall elements from the top, together with the frames, creating a very stable structure.

 Upkeep


All LUGARDE summerhouses and log cabins are delivered untreated and it is important to protect your garden building against the influence of sun, water and UV-light with a preservative soon after installation.

 Guarantee


LUGARDE guarantees all its summerhouses and log cabins for 5 years on manufacturing or construction defects. Such guarantees however only apply for those products which have been installed and which are treated according to the instructions and directions of Lugarde. Wood is a unique, natural product and the finish on boards will therefore vary. Variation will therefore be seen in the grains and shades of colour. Such properties are normal in wood and cannot be considered as a defect. They have to be accepted as an unavoidable property of the product. All summerhouses or log cabins which are constructed from wood will shrink or swell according to weather conditions and along with warping are natural properties of wood.
